Porn star offers to return money to end silence on Trump

Stormy Daniels offers to return money to 'tell her story' of alleged Trump affair

Daniels offers to pay Trump $130000 to end secret agreement that bought her silence

A friend named in the non-disclosure agreement signed by adult film star Stormy Daniels claims the future president once gave the actress the keys to a NY condo he bought for her.

The offer is valid until Tuesday afternoon (US time) the letter said. Probably because it was a consensual affair and because he was - well, he was Donald Trump!

By now, that agreement is well known: Porn actress Stephanie Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels, received $130,000 to stay mum about the alleged sexual relationship.

He added that Daniels told Trump she didn't want to move to NY because she was planning on going to Florida.

Avenatti said last week that Daniels "believes it's important that the public learn the truth about what happened". At which point, Stormy Daniels sat down for a "60 Minutes" interview with Anderson Cooper, now scheduled to air on Sunday, March 18, which, according to The New York Times, Michael Cohen may try to block by filing an injunction against CBS.

Using pseudonyms Peggy Peterson and David Dennison, Ms Clifford and Mr Trump were to sign the agreement along with Essential Consultants, the lawsuit claims.

Regardless of whether Cohen accepts Clifford's offer, the money is the subject of a complaint by the watchdog group Common Cause to the Federal Election Commission. Clifford's attorney, Michael Avenatti, on Monday sent Cohen a letter offering to wire $130,000 by Friday to an account designated by the President.

Daniels would also be allowed to "publish any text messages, photos and/or videos relating to the President that she may have in her possession, all without fear of retribution and legal liability for damages", it said.

"On information and belief, EC was created by Mr. Cohen with Mr. Trump's knowledge for one objective - to hide the true source of funds to be used to pay Ms. Clifford, thus further insulating Mr. Trump from later discovery and scrutiny".

Cohen has said he made the payment out his pocket and neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction.

Daniels had sued Donald Trump last week for not signing the nondisclosure agreement.

Trump's failure to sign renders the agreement null and void, Clifford says.

But Clifford says only she and Cohen signed the agreement on October 28, 2016, Cohen on behalf of Essential Consultants.
