President Donald Trump says life is not 'so easy' for First Lady Melania

Melania Knew

Former porn actress Stormy Daniels offered on Monday to repay the $130,000 that President Donald Trump's lawyer paid her to agree not to discuss her alleged sexual relationship with the president right before the 2016 election.

Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels, is having a field day on Twitter with the many people who are insulting her now that she wants to speak out about an affair she says she had with President Donald Trump.

With the 60 Minutes interview and a series of tweets from Clifford's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, taunting Cohen last week, the actress and her lawyer were pursuing an aggressive strategy to pressure the President.

Cohen, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the letter, nor did Cohen's attorney.

Trump, whose wife Melania gave birth to their son Barron several months before his alleged relationship with Daniels began, has denied the affair, according to the White House.

In an interview on Sunday, Avenatti indicated that the publicity blitz was not likely to let up any time soon, ensuring that the story Cohen paid to go away some 17 months ago would continue to churn. Her claim is the agreement was invalid because Trump never signed it.

And I'm confident, I think Marcus would agree with me, that we're very comfortable with Mitch taking that shot in that situation. It was not to be however, as a Cartwright floater from the left elbow clanked harmlessly up off the rim and fell to the court.

If the president's attorneys reject the offer however, it could be seen as acknowledging the existence of the nondisclosure agreement and that it directly involves President Trump. "If the allegations prove true it is hard to argue credibly that hush money payments to cover up an affair between a presidential candidate and an adult film star, weeks before the election, were not meant to influence that election".

Daniels's lawyer recently posted pictures of her along with 60 Minutes host Anderson Cooper to social media, but an air date for the segment has not been given, and the president's lawyers are seeking to block the screening, according to a Buzzfeed report.

The watchdog group Common Cause filed a federal complaint in January arguing that the payout to Daniels may have violated campaign finance rules.

If the NDA is deemed void, she'll also be allowed to publish, without fear of legal action, any text messages, photos or videos she has relating Mr. Trump.

The injunction may seek to silence Daniels by citing the nondisclosure agreement - although CBS is not party to it.
