Stormy sues The Donald, says hush money deal invalid because he never signed it
NBC broke the news at the tail end of the 7 o’clock hour:
Adult film star Stormy Daniels sued Donald Trump Tuesday, alleging that he never signed the nondisclosure agreement that his lawyer had arranged with her.
The civil suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by NBC News, alleges that her agreement not to disclose her “intimate” relationship with Trump is not valid because while both Daniels and Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen signed it, Trump never did.
Stormy (real name Stephanie Clifford) also dropped an additional Tootsie Roll in Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s punchbowl: MSNBC’s Christopher Hayes reported that Stormy also claims that Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen falsified/forged a letter, claiming it was written by her.
Earlier today, The Wall Street Journal reported:
The bank used by President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer to wire $130,000 to a former adult-film actress flagged the transaction as suspicious and reported it to the Treasury Department, according to a person familiar with the matter.
The lawyer, Michael Cohen, wired the money to a lawyer for former actress Stephanie Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels, from an account at First Republic Bank . The money was received on Oct. 27, 2016, 12 days before the presidential election, another person familiar with the matter said. It isn’t clear when First Republic reported it to the government as suspicious.
Mr. Cohen said he missed two deadlines earlier that month to make the $130,000 payment to Ms. Clifford because he couldn’t reach Mr. Trump in the hectic final days of the presidential campaign, the person said.
The lawsuit, sadly, didn’t contain any of those “salacious details” that would prompt Uncle Dollhands to tweet “Fake news!”… oh… wait…
