Trump’s Attorney Wants $20 Million From Stormy Daniels

By The Daily Wire. Lawyers for Essential Consultants LLC, the company, set up by President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, reportedly to negotiate with – and eventually pay – Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about an affair she had with Trump before the 2016 election, filed a motion late Friday claiming Daniels may owe up to $20 million in damages if she speaks out on the affair.

Essential Consultants filed the claim as part of an effort to remove the case from California court to Federal court, noting that Donald Trump has only minimal contacts with the state of California, and that the amount of money at issue in the lawsuit is significant. A personal attorney for Donald Trump is also expected to file in support of the motion.

Cohen and his company say that Daniels owes a million dollars for each violation of the agreement she signed just before Donald Trump was elected President. They claim that, on at least 20 separate occasions, Daniels revealed information ostensibly protected by the agreement, putting her on the hook for at least $20 million, and potentially more if she keeps speaking on the subject.

Trump’s Lawyers Seek $20 Million in Damages From Porn Star Stormy Daniels

By CNBC. A law firm representing U.S. President Donald Trump and the corporation that paid porn actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 in what she called hush money over an alleged affair with Trump said in a court filing that it was seeking at least $20 million in damages for multiple violations of a nondisclosure agreement.

In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California made public on Friday, the Blakely Law Group also asked for a lawsuit by Daniels that seeks to nullify the agreement to be moved to a federal district court from a county court . . .

Daniels has alleged that she had an affair with Trump that began in 2006 and lasted several months.

Michael Cohen, a private lawyer for Trump, has said he paid Daniels $130,000 of his own money during the 2016 presidential election campaign. Cohen has not explained why he made the payment and has not said if Trump was aware of it.

Attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents Daniels, said on Friday: “This is simply more of the same bullying tactics from the president and Mr. Cohen. They are now attempting to remove this case in order to increase their chances that the matter will ultimately be decided in private arbitration, behind closed doors, outside of public view and scrutiny.
