Stormy Daniels sues Donald Trump for defamation over 'total con job' tweet

Stormy Daniels sues Donald Trump for defamation over 'total con job' tweet

Stormy Daniels sues Donald Trump for defamation over 'total con job' tweet

The lawsuit adds a new complication to litigation involving Mr Trump and his personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who paid Daniels $130,000 ($173,000) just before the 2016 U.S. presidential election to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with Mr Trump.

Stormy Daniels is suing Donald Trump for defamation after he tweeted that she was lying about being threatened over their alleged affair. "Mr. Trump knew that his false, disparaging statement would be read by people around the world" and that it would get a lot of press coverage, "and that Ms. Clifford would be subjected to threats of violence, economic harm, and reputational damage as a result".

Daniels alleges that the man looked at her daughter and said, "It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom".

Ryan is representing Cohen in the face of the Russian Federation investigation, which Trump himself is reportedly in "panic mode" over, as well as in the parallel probe by US attorney's office for the Southern District of NY.

The lawsuit says Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, suffered damages in excess of $75,000.

Avenatti suggested on Twitter Monday that Trump knew about the alleged threat and had some role in it.

If Curry comes back even close to 100 percent, it's scary to imagine what this Golden State offense will look like. No team in National Basketball Association history has come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series.

The litigation focuses on a tweet from Trump on April 18. Daniels' defamation lawsuit against Trump was filed in the Southern District of NY, which is also where Cohen's criminal case is being pursued.

Cohen has dominated national headlines since federal agents stormed into his Manhattan office and hotel room earlier this month and seized a cache of records, including communications between him and Trump. He then wrote, "A total con job". She contends the agreement is invalid because Trump never personally signed it.

These payments were made before Cohen was under investigation for an alleged hush payment of $130,000 made to porn actress Stormy Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

In mid-April, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's office, home and a hotel room that he was using. Is the new lawsuit an attempt to keep Daniels in the limelight while the other case is on hiatus?

"A guy walked up on me and said to me: 'Leave Trump alone".

Avenatti acknowledged that malice will be hard to prove but said he was confident in the merits of the case.
