Stormy Daniels Sues Trump, Claims He Never Actually Signed Their "Hush Agreement"

"Let's not bother to be delicate", Guthrie said to Avenatti before asking point blank: "Did she have a sexual relationship with the president?" Daniels received $130,000 to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with Trump.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday evening.
The lawsuit claims Trump intentionally refused to sign it so that he would have deniability in case the agreement ever came to light. The lawsuit alleges that Cohen formed the LLC "to hide the true sources of funds to be used to pay Ms. Clifford, thus further insulating Mr. Trump from later discovery and scrutiny".
But Trump never signed it, providing the basis for Avenatti's attempt to have it thrown out and release Daniels from her obligations.
Both Daniels and Trump denied any affair in statements to the Journal in January.
Last month, Cohen admitted to making a payment to Clifford, writing in a statement: "Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly".
Avenatti continued to say that the lack of Trump's signature for the NDA means Daniels is absolved from her previous legal obligations.
Michael Avenatti, Daniels' lawyer said Tuesday on NBC's "Today" show that the actress did have a sexual relationship with Trump, but declined to say whether she had texts or photos that would corroborate it.
"The idea that an attorney would go off on his own without his client's knowledge and engage in this type of negotiation and enter into this type of agreement quite honestly I think is ludicrous", he said.
The NDA referenced Trump under the pseudonym David Dennison, while Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is referred to as Peggy Peterson (PP).
"She's looking to disclose the truth about what happened", Avenatti said later in the interview.
In the suit, Daniels claims she began an affair with Trump in the summer of 2006, around the time First Lady Melania Trump gave birth her only child with the president, son Barron.
White House spokesman Raj Shah told members of the press he had never asked the president about the alleged relationship, NBC reported.
The first option would involve Trump defending himself against Daniels' action.
Years later, during Trump's presidential campaign, he and his attorney Michael Cohen "aggressively sought to silence" Daniels, allegedly to ensure Trump was elected president. Clifford alleges that as recently as last week, Trump's attorney tried to initiate an arbitration proceeding against her.
