Stormy Daniels was 'physically threatened' for spilling the beans on Trump: Lawyer

Trump lawyers seek $20m in damages from porn star Stormy Stormy Daniels sued for $20m in damages over Trump affair claims

Donald Trump and those closest to him have tried to "intimidate and bully" adult film star Stormy Daniels, according to her attorney, who said a filing Friday night by the president's lawyer claiming his client owes Trump $20 million is just the latest example.

Under the nondisclosure agreement, Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, could be subjected to a $1 million penalty each time the deal was broken.

Asked about Mr. Avenatti's allegation relating to threats on Friday, the president's press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said she had "no knowledge" about it, but "obviously we take the safety and security of any person seriously".

Mr. Trump's name surfaced in one of two motions his legal team filed Friday in Los Angeles.

Earlier on Friday, Avenatti told MSNBC and CNN that Daniels had been physically threatened and warned to remain silent about her relationship with Trump.

Brent Blakely, who filed the action on behalf of Essential Consultants LLC and Trump, did not reply to a request for comment.

Russian Federation expels 23 British diplomats over ex-spy poisoning accusations
Two days later Lavrov's deputy Sergei Ryabkov says Moscow never had any programmes to develop the Novichok nerve agent. It also says it has begun a separate probe into the suspected murder of a Russian living in London, Nikolai Glushkov.


In an interview with MSNBC's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti said the filing is an attempt to silence Daniels, who says she had an affair with Trump in 2006. Mr. Trump's representatives have denied the allegations that he had an affair with Ms. Clifford.

Daniels says she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and, days before the 2016 election, was paid $130,000 by a shell company set up by Trump's personal attorney to keep quiet.

Mr Cohen ignored the offer.

Avenatti would not provide details about the threat.

In addition to Clifford, six women have contacted Avenatti with similar stories, he said.

In the lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles, Mr Avenatti claims Mr Trump never signed the non-disclosure agreement that his lawyer made with Ms Clifford, claiming that would make it null and void, and making public the agreement and related documents. Michael told Tapper that his law firm was in the process of vetting the women and their claims in order to make a decision about the validity of their cases and to determine if his firm would represent any of the women like he represents Stormy.
