Stormy stuns Donald with a legal time-bomb
This ought to be fun!
Stephanie Clifford, teh accomplished equestian who is better known as adult film actress and director Stormy Daniels, just filed a defamation lawsuit against real estate mogul Donald Trump.
Adult-film star Stormy Daniels has filed a defamation suit against President Trump in addition to her ongoing one against his personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
Daniels’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tweeted Monday that his client has filed the lawsuit for Trump’s “irresponsible and defamatory statements” about Daniels, whom Cohen paid $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement weeks before the 2016 election.
While Avenatti does not have as many followers than Trump, he knows how to play Twitter even better than angry Uncle Dotard:
Moments ago, we filed this lawsuit against Mr. Trump for his recent irresponsible and defamatory statements about my client @stormydaniels. He is well aware of what transpired and his complicity. We fully intend on bringing it to light. #buckleup #bastahttps://t.co/ZuBjI1EY9z

Clifford has already sued Michael Cohen over the matter of an apparently bogus non-disclosure agreement, and that lawsuit is on a 90-day hold requested by Cohen following the FBI raids on his office, home, storage unit, and hotel room earlier this month. Her case against Trump looks pretty strong:
She claimed in interviews that in 2011, after she agreed to cooperate with a magazine about an article, she was threatened in a Las Vegas parking lot by a man to keep quiet about her tryst with Trump. Daniels’s lawyer released a composite sketch of the man on April 17.
Trump dismissed the claim in an April 18 Twitter posting: “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”
Calling a potential victim of violent retribution’s claim a “con job” was not too bright. We doubt that Clifford and Avenatti will settle the matter out of court, which means the lawsuit — and the discovery which will accompany it — are a ticking time-bomb which will no doubt shake loose even more embarrassing revelations about Trump.
You go, girl!
