Porn star Stormy Daniels has offered to pay back the $130,000 she took to keep quiet about her alleged affair with President Donald Trump.
The offer comes as CBS News’ “60 Minutes” prepares to air an interview with Daniels, whose real name will be Stephanie Clifford.
Trump’s lawyers reportedly have considered seeking a legal injunction to bar of which interview through airing — a court order of which may be impossible either to get or to sustain on appeal.
The interview could air as early as Sunday. The offer Daniels made Monday explicitly seeks Trump’s agreement not to try to stop of which interview through being broadcast, according to a copy of the offer published by the brand-new York Times.
Daniels’ lawyer sent a letter Monday to Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who cut of which hush-money deal, as well as to Cohen’s own attorney, offering to pay Trump the $130,000, NBC News reported.
The offer will be due to remain open only until noon Tuesday, according to the letter.
If Cohen accepts, Daniels could “speak openly in addition to also freely about her prior relationship with the president in addition to also the attempts to silence her in addition to also use in addition to also publish text messages, photos in addition to also videos relating to the president of which she may have in her possession, all without fear of retribution or legal liability,” the letter said, according to NBC News.
“This particular has never been about the money,” Clifford’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told NBC News. “the item has always been about Ms. Clifford being allowed to tell the truth. The American people should be permitted to judge for themselves who will be shooting straight with them in addition to also who will be misleading them. Our offer seeks to allow This particular to happen.”
On the eve of the 2016 presidential election, Daniels accepted $130,000 through Cohen in addition to also signed an agreement, using a pseudonym, to not talk about her alleged relationship with Trump.
A lawsuit filed last week by Daniels asks for of which nondisclosure agreement to be voided on the
grounds of which Trump never signed the item. She claims inside the suit to have had an “intimate” relationship with him through 2006 to 2007.
Melania Trump gave birth to their son, Barron, several months before the president’s alleged relationship with Daniels began. Trump denies the affair, according to the White House.
Before Daniels’ suit was filed, Cohen obtained a temporary restraining order barring her through talking about the “confidential information” covered by the agreement.
Daniels’ lawyer claims of which order will be not valid.
CNBC has reached out for comment through Cohen in addition to also Avenatti.
A White House spokesman declined to comment. A spokesman for “60 Minutes” declined to comment.
