- Porn star Stormy Daniels filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump in California state court, claiming a "hush agreement" she signed over their alleged affair a decade ago is null and void because Trump never signed the document, news outlets reported Tuesday.

In the lawsuit, Stormy is claiming that Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, signed the legally binding document instead of the President, rendering it useless and invalid; should her lawsuit be successful, she'll be able to speak openly about her 2006 affair, which began shortly after Melania gave birth to their son, Barron.

Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen admitted to paying Clifford $130,000 prior to the election for services rendered, but denied that it was a "hush money" payment.

Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, facilitated the agreement and a $130,000 payment for Daniels, but Cohen has denied that it was meant to keep the woman quiet about the alleged affair. But she alleged that after his campaign became aware of her intention to publicly disclose her encounters with Trump, they aggressively "sought to silence" her.

As for Stormy Daniels, she continues to show up for performances and do interviews, always careful to sidestep any question concerning Trump. Asked for comment, Mr. Cohen offered a two-word emailed statement: "Fake News".

"Earlier today, we filed this complaint seeking a ct order voiding the alleged "hush" agreement between our client S. Clifford aka Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump", Avenatti announced. It's not clear when that occurred, but it was previously reported that the bank used by Clifford's attorney, City National Bank in Los Angeles, launched it own internal inquiry in September 2017. Dennison is indeed Trump, confirmed Clifford's lawyer. The lawsuit reads, "On or about October 28,2016, only days before the election, two of the parties signed the Hush Agreement - Ms. Clifford and Mr. Cohen (on behalf of EC)".

Daniels' representatives were threatening to walk away, a source told the paper, and so Cohen said he stopped trying to track down the Republican nominee and paid the bill to keep Daniels quiet himself. Cohen reportedly bungled the payments because he couldn't get a hold of Trump during the hectic final days of the campaign. "The extent of Mr. Trump's involvement in these efforts is presently unknown, but it strains credibility to conclude that Mr. Cohen is acting on his own accord". He has also said that "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". He also said the payment to Clifford was "not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone".
