Stormy Daniels sues Trump over “con job” tweet about forensic sketch

Today, Stormy Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, announced a lawsuit against President Trump for defamation based on his tweet in response to the release of the sketch.

The claim references an April 18 tweet in which President Trump contested the existence of the man Daniels says threatened her in 2011, warning her not to go public with the details of her relationship with Trump.

The filing says the tweet was "false and defamatory", arguing that Trump was speaking about Daniels and that he "knew that his false, disparaging statement would be read by people around the world, as well as widely reported".

But Ms Daniel's lawyer tweeted that Mr Trump was "well aware of what transpired".

Mr Cohen is under scrutiny as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and alleged collusion with President Trump's campaign.

Daniels alleges that the man looked at her daughter and said, "It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom".

Both will be paid around €3,700 a month with accommodation, hotels and flights all covered. It says it's looking for a "fun pair of individuals who are able to think big".

According to the complaint, which was released on Twitter Monday by Avenatti, Trump's Twitter remark is "false and defamatory" and "falsely attacks the veracity of Ms. Clifford's account of the threatening incident that took place in 2011".

In Daniel's other lawsuit, the federal judge granted Cohen's request for a delay because of the likelihood that he will be indicted in related criminal investigations. Just ten days before the 2016 election, Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 through a Delaware-based entity he established to facilitate the transfer of what he says was his personal money.

Avenatti replied by mocking Trump and raising the defamation issue.

Trump has denied having an affair with Clifford but acknowledged last week that his personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, represented him in negotiations with the porn star. Cohen has indicated he would assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the Daniels' case.
