Porn Star Offers To Pay Back Alleged Donald Trump's Affair Hush Money

Stormy Daniels Letter: Trump not fit for presidency

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels has offered to return the $US130,000 payment she received from President Donald Trump's lawyer past year to dissolve her "hush agreement".

However, now she's offering to repay Mr. Trump the $130,000, in exchange for being allowed to speak "openly and freely" about the affair.

The porn star, Stephanie Clifford, spoke with the 60 Minutes contributor Anderson Cooper late last week. Cohen and Trump both deny that the president ever had an affair with Clifford.

Cohen, Trump's lawyer, was given until noon (1600 GMT) Tuesday to respond.

This is another attempt by Clifford to dispense with the NDA.

Cohen, who has admitted to facilitating the $130,000 payment to keep Clifford quiet, denies that the negotiations or the payment were made on behalf of the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign. In exchange, the settlement agreement between Clifford, Trump and Cohen's company would be "deemed null and void in their entirety".

Daniels previously told In Touch magazine in 2011 that she had a sexual encounter with Trump, who was best known as a real estate mogul and the host of "The Apprentice" at the time.

Levine has also held leadership positions with the Ravinia Festival , the Munich Philharmonic, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Ashok Pai said he had been abused by Levine for years, beginning in 1986 near the Ravinia Festival in IL , when he was 16.


"This is an extremely fair offer", her attorney, Michael Avenatti, said in an interview.

The letter states that the money would be wired to a Trump-designated account no later than Friday.

A message left with Cohen was not immediately returned.

In January, the tabloid weekly InTouch published a 2011 interview with Daniels in which she described having sex with Trump, but her description in that interview was unremarkable, saying, "It was textbook generic".

The 60 Minutes interview raised the prospect that Trump's personal attorney and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, would seek an injunction stopping CBS from airing the segment, which does not yet have a scheduled broadcast date. Daniels and Avenatti, though, argue that it means that there is no existing agreement between Daniels and Trump, and that Daniels can speak on the subject as she pleases. Avenatti told CNN over the weekend that at least 10 people had offered to pay the penalty if she would discuss the alleged affair.

Is the White House trying to block it?

"In light of the amount of misinformation that Mr. Cohen has put out there to the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and others, I think it's time for her to tell her story and for the public to decide who's telling the truth", he added.
