Stormy Daniels' tell-all book on Trump: salacious detail and claims of cheating https://t.co/nUEu0XI4pF— The Guardian (@guardian) September 18, 2018
Stormy Daniels claims she and Trump had sex in 2006, not long after the birth of his son Barron Trump with wife Melania. Trump has categorically denied the affair.
Just prior to the 2016 presidential election, Daniels was reportedly offered $130,000 by then-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen as a hush money payment alongside an NDA so Daniels would not speak of her alleged affair with the millionaire businessman.
The Guardian reported that Daniels was offered the cash to buy the rights to her story, which she planned to sell to the media.
Daniels had already been threatened once, years earlier, and warned never to tell the story about Trump. She claims that a man approached her while she was putting her young daughter in her car seat and told her to stay silent about her affair with Trump.
In April of this year, Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels, unveiled a sketch on The View of the man the porn star says threatened her to keep quiet about the alleged sexual affair with Trump and offered a $100,000 award for anyone who identified the culprit.
“His face is burned in my memory,” Daniels said during the appearance, as reported by The New York Post.
“I was really rattled. It just never left me.”
Cohen now faces multiple fraud charges in court. He has implicated the president regarding campaign finance violations that include the hush money payment to Daniels.
