Stormy Daniels sues Trump over 'defamatory' tweet

Stormy Daniels sues Trump over 'defamatory' tweet

At issue is a tweet Trump made in which he dismissed a composite sketch that Daniels says depicted a man who threatened her in 2011 to stay quiet about her alleged relationship with Trump.

Avenatti appeared to be referencing Trump's tweets on April 21 about a New York Times report centered on Cohen's relationship with him.

"Mr. Trump used his national and worldwide audience of millions of people to make a false factual statement to denigrate and attack Ms. Clifford", the complaint says.

"Avenatti stated that Trump was fearful about Cohen's case and that he and his administration were anxious Cohen would "flip" or testify" against the president.

Trump retweeted a photo of the sketch alongside a picture of Daniels' former boyfriend and wrote, "A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom.' And then he was gone".

The sketch depicted a man Daniels described as having threatened her in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011.

Accept US deal or 'shut up'
History was made in Saudi Arabia last Wednesday when a woman singer performed before a mixed (as opposed to all-female) audience for the first time.

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

In the lawsuit, Daniels - whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford - says the tweet in effect accuses her of committing a crime because he claims she has falsely accused a person of committing a crime against her. Because they know what I have been saying for weeks - he will soon flip on Mr. Trump and they want to be able to claim he is lying when he does.

Avenatti suggested on Twitter Monday that Trump knew about the alleged threat and had some role in it. We fully intend on bringing it to light. On Friday, federal Judge James Otero granted a 90-day delay in that lawsuit - but also warned that Cohen likely faces a criminal indictment.

Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, also is named as a defendant in the California case, but Cohen is under criminal investigation and successfully asked for the California court to put that case on hold while the criminal investigation proceeds.

The porn star first sued the president on March 6, arguing that the nondisclosure agreement she said was created to hide the affair is invalid because the president never signed it.
