Donald Trump is asking for $20 million in damages from Stormy Daniels as he accuses her of breaching the non disclosure agreement she signed in 2016.
Donald Trump’s lawyers claim that actress Stormy Daniels has breached the non disclosure agreement at least 20 times after she repeatedly said that she had an affair with Donald Trump in 2016.
Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who represents the interests of Stormy Daniels – who’s real name is Stephanie Clifford – filed a lawsuit earlier this month asking the court to void the non disclosure agreement. The lawyer claims that the demands made by Donald Trump are unprecedented and this is just another harassment tactic against his client.
Besides damages, Donald Trump’s lawyers also asked to move the lawsuit from the state court into federal court in order to keep the lawsuit behind closed doors, far from the public’s eye and from the media.
The Donald Trump legal team in this case also includes lawyer Charles Harder, who became famous after getting Hulk Hogan off in a sexual abuse case and he also represented Melania Trump in her lawsuit against the Daily Mail.
- Donald Trump got a restraining order against Stormy Daniels
- Donald Trump paid off a porn star in 2016
Avenatti said on Friday that his client, Stormy Daniels, has received threats but has not provided too many details.
A fund raising campaign has been started online for Stormy Daniels and so far the campaign raised almost $200,000, probably to help her in the on-going legal battle with Donald Trump.
Last week, Donald Trump’s lawyers managed to get a restraining order against Stormy Daniels. Details about the restraining order appeared in the media one day after Stormy Daniels filed suit against Donald Trump claiming that the non disclosure agreement is void. She said that the NDA, which was drafted before the 2016 Presidential Elections is void because Donald Trump has not signed it.
The suit was filed in Los Angeles. The NDA has been signed in October of 2016, shortly before the Presidential Elections won by Donald Trump. Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, said that he paid $130,000 to Stormy Daniels from his own pocket in order to keep silent but the funds never arrived in Stormy Daniels’ bank account, which – by all accounts – made Stormy Daniels very upset.
Donald Trump constantly denies having anything to do with Stormy Daniels and said he never know anything about the 2016 non disclosure agreement ( which might be true considering that Stormy Daniels says Donald Trump never signed it ).
Stormy Daniels, the porn star allegedly paid off by Donald Trump to keep silent about their relationship, threatened to breach the NDa before the elections because she never received the money that was promised to her.
The information that Donald Trump was involved with Stormy Daniels exploded in the media at the beginning of this year. Stormy Daniels claims she had intimate relations with Donald Trump in July of 2016, after they met at a golf tournament on Lake Tahoe.
