American actress Stormy Daniels sues Donald Trump

The steamy details of the agreement have been revealed after Stormy - real name Stephanie Clifford - announced she was suing the President overnight, alleging he never signed the "hush agreement" his lawyer had put together just days before he was to become the most powerful man in the world.

In a Wednesday appearance on NBC's Today Show, Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti did not rule out the possibility that the ex-porn star would try to sell her story if she prevailed in court. The suit claims Clifford and Trump's intimate relationship started in the summer of 2006 and went "well into the year 2007".

STORMY Daniels is reportedly suing Donald Trump over claims he never signed a €120k "hush agreement" about their alleged affair.

Trump and Clifford are not referred to in the "hush agreement", but the lawyer contends that pseudonyms were used: David Dennison for Trump, and Peggy Peterson for Clifford.

"For example, only days ago on or about February 27, 2018, Mr. Trump's attorney Mr. Cohen surreptitiously initiated a bogus arbitration proceeding in Los Angeles".

Cohen has said he paid Daniels with his own money, and wasn't reimbursed by the Trump Organization or the campaign.

Mr Cohen has previously said that Mr Trump has denied an affair with Ms Clifford. According to the lawsuit, the relationship included "at least one "meeting" with Mr. Trump in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills hotel".

Daniels filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles, claiming the deal was "invalid" as Trump personally did not sign the document.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

He said Daniels is willing to give up the $130,000 she received allegedly to remain quiet about her affair with Trump.

President Trump's proclivity for putting his name on buildings, steaks, ties and certificates is well-known. Before Tuesday's suit, she had not publicly alleged an affair since the Wall Street Journal reported the $130,000 payment in January.

He declined to answer several follow-up questions, including whether Mr Trump had been aware that Mr Cohen made the payment, why he made the payment or whether he had made similar payments to other people.

The suit also alleges Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, was harassing Clifford and trying to silence her as recently as last week.

In return for the money, Clifford was not to disclose any confidential information about Trump. "We believe that that was so that he could later claim deniability, and therefore, from a legal perspective, we believe she's free to talk". On the West Wing side, Trump's press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Wednesday morning: "we've addressed our feelings on that situation and I don't have anything else to add".
