Trump may face a reckoning in case brought by female accuser

If a defamation case proceeds to trial, it could put the president face-to-face with his past.

IN THE WEEKS leading up to his election, Donald Trump went on a tear against a list of women who had accused him of touching them inappropriately. One was Summer Zervos, who had been a contestant on his reality television show.

“False stories. All made up. Lies. Lies. No witnesses. No nothing. All big lies,” Trump declared (https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-claims-election-is-rigged-and-calls-for-pre-debate-drug-tests/2016/10/15/25d4d682-930e-11e6-9c52-0b10449e33c4_story.html) at a rally after the Californian made a statement alleging that Trump kissed and groped her in a 2007 encounter at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

“Total fabrication,” he told a cheering crowd in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. “The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”

As the nation wrestles with a historic shift in how to address old charges of sexual misbehavior, allegations against Trump, which date to his days as a New York developer, have become part of the public debate. Trump has repeatedly said the accusations against him are groundless. But by turning personal and branding the women liars, Trump has perhaps unwittingly played into a cutting-edge strategy in the legal pursuit of sexual misconduct — claims of defamation such as those used against comedian Bill Cosby and in a lesser-known New York case, argued by two lawyers who are now representing Zervos.

The defamation suit filed in January in New York State Supreme Court by Zervos, a short-lived contestant on “The Apprentice”, has reached a critical point, with oral arguments over Trump's motion to dismiss scheduled for Tuesday, after which the judge is expected to rule on whether the case may move forward.

If it proceeds, Zervos's attorneys could gather and make public incidents from Trump's past and Trump could be called to testify, with the unwelcome specter of a former president looming over him: It was Bill Clinton's misleading sworn testimony — not the repeated allegations of sexual harassment against him — that eventually led to his impeachment.

“It's almost a train you can't stop going down the tracks,” said Joseph Cammarata, who represented Paula Jones against Clinton and, more recently, represented seven Cosby accusers in a defamation suit. “It opens him up to have to answer questions about sexual relations, other relationships, what might have been said, to open up your whole life.”

The use of defamation to litigate an underlying allegation of sexual misconduct addresses other challenges: Often, the statute of limitations is up before accusations come to light; in some instances, the he-said-she-said nature of the testimony makes accusations hard to prove.

“An allegation of defamation against somebody who can seem flamboyantly reckless with the truth may have a higher probability of sticking,” said Naomi Mezey, a law professor at Georgetown University. “Some women feel equally injured and sometimes more outraged by being publicly attacked and called liars for doing what they feel was very brave and in some respects a public service.”

Zervos came forward after The Washington Post's publication in October 2016 of an “Access Hollywood” video (https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-recorded-having-extremely-lewd-conversation-about-women-in-2005/2016/10/07/3b9ce776-8cb4-11e6-bf8a-3d26847eeed4_story.html) with audio of Trump bragging about grabbing women's genitals. She issued a statement on October 14th alleging that Trump kissed her when she visited him at Trump Tower in December 2007 and that he kissed her, groped her breast and “began thrusting his genitals” when he invited her to join him for dinner later that month in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The allegations surprised people in Zervos's home town of Huntington Beach, California, where she attracted attention when she was chosen in a national search for Season 5 of “The Apprentice”. But Trump fired her abruptly at the end of the first episode. After filming finished, Zervos returned to work at Sunny's, her family's diner. Several of her acquaintances recalled in recent interviews their shock at seeing Zervos appear on television to make allegations about Trump.

“We couldn't believe it,” said Kathy May, a Trump supporter who recalled conversations at the time.

Zervos is represented by Gloria Allred and her New York based co-counsel, Mariann Meier Wang, who declined to make Zervos available for questions. Allred says she represents Zervos pro bono on her website, where she appeals for donations to pay Zervos's other legal expenses and says excess contributions will go to rape crisis centers.

Allred and Wang have demonstrated their determination to prove the allegations. They subpoenaed (https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/4108744-Subpoena-Zervos-Trump-Lawsuit.html) the Trump campaign in March for documents concerning Zervos and “any woman who asserted that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.” The lawyers agreed to suspend the document release until after the New York judge rules.

Allred declined in an interview to discuss her evidence-gathering strategy but said, “We're not going to be limited to that which we have itemized in our subpoena.” In news conferences, she has been asked whether targets could include out-takes from “The Apprentice”, which might show how Trump treated female contestants such as Zervos.

If the suit goes to trial, Allred, who appeared at news conferences last year alongside three other Trump accusers, could bring other women to the stand.

“My read of the case is that it is designed to force the president to make public material that he would prefer to keep private,” said David Marcus, a law professor at the University of Arizona.

By filing in New York, Allred and Wang have chosen a state where Zervos's claims may be met with sympathy, said Robert Rabin, a Stanford University law professor. A New York jury is likely to be “anti-Trump, anti-sexual-misconduct and [have] generally liberal norms,” he said.

Allred and Wang settled a defamation case there in 2015. In that suit, two clients accused Syracuse University basketball coach of defaming them after they spoke up about sexual abuse that they said occurred when they were ball boys for the team.

“We think that that is an important precedent on what the issue of defamation is in New York,” Allred said in a recent interview.

Marc Kasowitz, Trump's personal attorney, said in a statement that Zervos's case has “no merit,” describing it as “politically motivated” and “based on allegations of events that never occurred.” Paul Burgo, a lawyer in Kasowitz's firm, wrote in a recent email that they had no further comment and are seeking “dismissal and alternatively a stay on Constitutional grounds” (https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/DocumentDisplayServlet?documentId=OIzcbH8z2KPIERmWXL7b3w==&system=prod).

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the administration also had nothing to add about the case. Responding to a reporter's question at a news briefing in late October, Sanders affirmed that the official White House position is that the women are lying.

That has been Trump's stance from the beginning. After Zervos made her allegations, Trump posted a statement on his campaign website: “To be clear, I never met her at a hotel or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago.” He decried what he called “made up events”, “100% fabricated and made-up charges”, saying in the last presidential debate that the women were put forward by the campaign of Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival, or motivated by the desire for “ten minutes of fame”, according to Zervos's complaint (https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/DocumentDisplayServlet?documentId=dYwlzFeeBv7mf3k4B/kysA==&system=prod).

In a November statement, Zervos described repercussions after Trump accused her of untruthfulness. “After he called me a liar I was threatened, bullied and saw my business targeted,” she said, asking for a retraction of his statements about her and other women.

Two months later, she filed suit.

Her attorneys' strategy has challenges, which have prompted an almost year-long battle with Trump's lawyers. Legal scholars are debating everything from broad constitutional questions of presidential immunity to the finer points of New York law and whether Zervos could appeal should the judge defer the suit until Trump leaves office.

“Of all the many logic puzzles this case presents, the possibility of a deferral ventures into uncharted waters and would likely send the attorneys to the mat,” said J. Maria Glover, a Georgetown University associate law professor who specializes in complex litigation.

Trump's attorneys argue that the president is immune (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2017/03/28/in-apprentice-defamation-case-trump-will-argue-he-is-immune-from-lawsuits-in-state-courts-until-he-leaves-office) and that the comments he made were political opinion (https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/DocumentDisplayServlet?documentId=dyknZ7gEVRd36qTYcBvMqw==&system=prod) and therefore “squarely protected by the First Amendment.”

In 1997, a Supreme Court ruling made it possible for a sitting president to be sued for private actions that occurred before he took office. Trump's attorneys are arguing that Clinton versus Jones, which applies to federal litigation, does not apply in state courts.

“That is where [Trump's attorneys] are putting their linchpin,” said John L. Diamond, a law professor at the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco.

Trump's unusual status, as a candidate and then a sitting president, is not the only complicating factor. Zervos may also face special scrutiny as a former contestant on Trump's show.

The burden of proof lies with the plaintiff. To show Trump defamed her, she must first demonstrate that her allegations against him were accurate.

If she is deemed a private citizen, Zervos simply would have to show that Trump was negligent toward the truth. If she is a public figure, the bar is far higher.

“She would have to prove he knew [what he said] was false or had reckless disregard for the truth,” said Lee Levine, senior counsel at the law firm Ballard Spahr.

Some experts suggest that the suit could surface one of the mysteries of the 2016 campaign — unused footage from “The Apprentice”.

Trump starred on the show for more than a decade, and multiple cameras captured scenes that never appeared on television. The boardroom drama, which lasted a few minutes on the show, could take 1˝ hours to shoot, with Trump playing contestants against one another.

Speculation about the out-takes soared after the “Access Hollywood” video was reported. Bill Pruitt, who worked on “The Apprentice”, tweeted, “As a producer on seasons 1 & 2 of #theApprentice (https://twitter.com/hashtag/theapprentice) I assure you: when it comes to the #trumptapes (https://twitter.com/hashtag/trumptapes) there are far worse.”

But Scott Salyers, the show's supervising casting producer, said in an interview, “I think those out-takes would no longer even put a blip on the radar.”

Salyers spent time with Trump during contestant selections. “He is who he is,” Salyers said — outspoken, prone to off-the-cuff outbursts, an ideal reality-TV star.

Those same traits could become liabilities for Trump, should he take the stand.

“I am not suggesting [Trump] will lie under oath,” Allred said in an interview. But, she added, if the president were to lie, perjury is considered a high crime and misdemeanor and could prompt impeachment hearings.

The stakes for the president go beyond sexual misconduct or defamation: If the judge decides the case cannot proceed, the ruling could stymie attempts to bring other civil suits against Trump in state courts. If, on the other hand, the suit does proceed, it could encourage more litigation against a president who entered office with an unusual array of lawsuits in his wake.

And if Zervos wins, her victory could embolden other accusers.

“There are 10 or 11 other women waiting in the wings,” Rabin said.

You haven't answered the question yet.

Is Donald Trump a LIAR? Or is he a sexual sicko & groper?

'cause Trump boasts he is a groper, yet you claim he isn't.

Therefore, Trump is either telling the truth and is a sexual groper, or else YOU are correct, which means Trump is a LIAR.

So which one is it? Are you going to answer? Or are you going to desperately avoid answering because you realise you are in a hole you dug yourself?

Face facts, Trump is a sexual sicko who has absolutely no respect whatsoever for women.

Perhaps you should send your daughters to Trump so he can grab their pussies and attempt to fuck them (that is if he can still get it up).

you call him a sexual sicko because he likes to chase and fuck hot women

not sure why you think trump has no respect for women to me it seems like he loves women
just not the hairy bush rat lefty ones

i have already read the whole transcript i didn't see the word grope anywhere
so maybe it's all in your imagination

so far all trump has proved is that he's a normal hot blooded male

but don't let me stop you from making shit up

maybe you should copy and paste the bit of the transcrip where he said he gropes

otherwise you get top marks for being a drama queen

G W Bush's cousin Billy Bush done a good job trying to set trump up but totally failed to sway the voters who want real change not Obama's bullshit

Trump's Longtime Lawyer Says He Paid
Stormy Daniels Out of His Own Pocket

Michael D. Cohen, who worked as a counsel to the Trump Organization for
more than a decade, said he was not reimbursed for the 2016 payment.

By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 11:39PM EST — Tuesday, February 13, 2018

(https://static01.nyt.com/images/2018/02/14/us/14dc-cohen1/14dc-cohen1-master768.jpg) (https://static01.nyt.com/images/2018/02/14/us/14dc-cohen1/14dc-cohen1-superJumbo.jpg)

MICHAEL D. COHEN, President Trump's longtime personal lawyer, said on Tuesday that he had paid $130,000 out of his own pocket to a pornographic-film actress who had once claimed to have had an affair with Mr. Trump.

In the most detailed explanation of the 2016 payment made to the actress (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/12/us/trump-stephanie-clifford-stormy-daniels.html), Stephanie Clifford, Mr. Cohen, who worked as a counsel to the Trump Organization for more than a decade, said he was not reimbursed for the payment.

“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,” Mr. Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times. “The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.”

He declined to answer several follow-up questions, including whether Mr. Trump had been aware that Mr. Cohen made the payment, why he made the payment or whether he had made similar payments to other people over the years.

Mr. Cohen has previously said that Mr. Trump has denied an affair with Ms. Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels. She has said the affair took place soon after Mr. Trump's wife, Melania, gave birth to the couple's son, Barron.

Mr. Cohen's statement about what he called “a private transaction” was the first time that he had acknowledged a role in the payment, which was first reported in January by The Wall Street Journal (https://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-lawyer-arranged-130-000-payment-for-adult-film-stars-silence-1515787678).

Mr. Cohen said that he had given a similar statement to the Federal Election Commission in response to a complaint filed by the government watchdog group Common Cause, which contended that the payment, made through a limited liability company that Mr. Cohen established, was an in-kind contribution to the Trump campaign.

(https://static01.nyt.com/images/2018/02/14/us/14dc-cohen2/14cohen2-master768.jpg) (https://static01.nyt.com/images/2018/02/14/us/14dc-cohen2/14cohen2-superJumbo.jpg)

Officials with Common Cause also sought to determine whether the payment was made by the Trump Organization or another person.

“The complaint alleges that I somehow violated campaign finance laws by facilitating an excess, in-kind contribution,” Mr. Cohen said in his statement. “The allegations in the complaint are factually unsupported and without legal merit, and my counsel has submitted a response to the F.E.C.”

He said he would not make any additional comments about the commission complaint “or regarding Ms. Clifford.”

Mr. Cohen was among Mr. Trump's fiercest defenders during his time at the Trump Organization, often telling reporters during the 2016 presidential campaign that even false information about Mr. Trump could be damaging if printed. Ms. Clifford had told her story to the magazine In Touch in 2011 (http://www.intouchweekly.com/posts/stormy-daniels-affair-donald-trump-151571), as well as the gossip website TheDirty.com (https://thedirty.com/donald-trump/exclusive-what-stormy-daniels-told-thedirty-com-about-her-affair-with-president-donald-trump/#post-2235519). Both accounts were published last month after the report of the 2016 payment.

In fall 2016, Ms. Clifford was once again in discussions with news outlets, this time more mainstream. The payment from Mr. Cohen reportedly came a few weeks before Election Day — around the same time as the release of the Access Hollywood” tape (https://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/08/us/politics/donald-trump-women.html) that showed Mr. Trump boasting about grabbing women's genitals without their consent.

Ms. Clifford has not publicly denied an affair with Mr. Trump (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/31/arts/television/stormy-daniels-jimmy-kimmel-denial.html). A statement released by Mr. Cohen in her name in January denied an affair, but in interviews, she has refused to directly answer questions about it.

She is one of at least two women who claimed to have had affairs with Mr. Trump but who were kept silent through legal agreements. The other is Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model. Ms. McDougal sold her story to the company that owns The National Enquirer, but it was not printed, The Wall Street Journal reported in 2016 (https://www.wsj.com/articles/national-enquirer-shielded-donald-trump-from-playboy-models-affair-allegation-1478309380).

Hope Hicks, now the White House communications director, said at the time that the report of an affair was “totally untrue” and that the Trump campaign had “no knowledge” of any payment to Ms. McDougal.

So....not only did Donald J. Trump fuck around on his pregnant wife, but when the lawyer paid off the porn star he fucked so she would keep quiet about it, Trump didn't even bother to reimburse his lawyer for the money he spent in an attempt to keep the sordid affair out of the public arena.

Not only is Trump a sexual sicko but he is also a piece of shit who doesn't give a shit who he rips off or sponges from.

Well, Trump obviously found her attractive enough to fuck behind his wife's back.

Or perhaps he didn't find her attractive, but was instead indulging in a woman-hating mission seeking out ugly trollops and fucking them in an abusive way?

Thank you for opening up the possibility that Trump could have been into hate sex in order to humiliate ugly woman.

That shows up an even uglier and nastier side of his personality.

Only sickos would support a monster like that.

Are you a sicko? I think so. Do the other people of Woodville know about your tendencies?

ROFLMAO.....and YET ANOTHER story about Trump having a sordid affair behind his wife's back just after she gave birth to their son Barron.

No doubt the stupid christian fuckheads will yet again make excuses for Trump fucking around on his wife.

I guess the commandment in that bullshit book The Bible about not committing adultory is a load of garbage, just like the entire book, eh?

Well, at least it is in the minds of those christians who support Trump as more and more sordid stories about him come out.

So you consider it perfectly okay for a man to fuck around behind his wife's back 500 times?

And to grab 1,000 pussies, even though he is married?

Do you preach that crap at the bullshit church you go to every Sunday?

Is the rest of the congregation as morally bankrupt as you?

Or is your attitude towards marriage fidelity a dirty little secret you keep quiet about when you are at church worshipping the god delusion inside your head?

In other words, you are a “pretend christian” only.

Why Trump's Playboy Playmate sex scandal is just another ho-hum day
in his presidency

Trump's troubles deepen as report offers new details of alleged affair with Playboy Playmate.

By MICHAEL FINNEGAN and MARK Z. BARABAK | 4:45PM PST — Friday, February 16, 2018

MOST POLITICIANS would have been swallowed up in scandal after new details emerged Friday of an alleged affair — with a Playboy Playmate, no less — that occurred the same weekend of a reported dalliance with a porn star.

Not Donald Trump.

In eight pages of handwritten notes published by the New Yorker, 1998 Playmate of the Year Karen McDougal recalled having sex with Trump in 2006, a few months after his wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron.

McDougal said one of their sexual encounters took place at the same Lake Tahoe golf tournament where porn actress Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels, says that she, too, had a tryst with Trump.

The president denies both affairs, but both women received money to keep the matters quiet.

Americans have known for years about Trump's history of adultery, most famously his 1989 cheating on his first wife, Ivana, with his soon-to-be second wife, Marla Maples.

He won the presidency despite accusations of sexual harassment or assault by more than a dozen women, along with an “Access Hollywood” audiotape of Trump boasting that his star power allowed him to grab women by their genitals.

“If you assume someone is a devoutly religious, family-values person, something like this will absolutely destroy their reputation and level their career,” said Lara M. Brown, who runs the Graduate School of Political Management at George Washington University.

“If, on the other hand, you believe this is who they are going in, which, if you heard the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape or listened to interviews with Howard Stern, then this is more confirmation of your belief and your expectations.”

Also, Trump's checkered New York business career — bankruptcies and alleged real estate swindles, among other things — inoculates him from some of the harm that a more conventional politician might suffer as details emerge on the hush money received by McDougal ($150,000) and Clifford ($130,000).

“His business reputation is not necessarily one of high character,” said Brown, an expert on political scandals.

Still, Trump is weathering a rough patch in his presidency, and the McDougal distraction is no help.

The White House's apparent overlooking of domestic abuse allegations against former senior Trump aide Rob Porter could worsen Republicans' troubled standing among women at a time when the #MeToo movement threatens to fuel GOP setbacks in November's midterm election.

McDougal, who confirmed the authenticity of her notes in an interview with New Yorker writer Ronan Farrow, said she was speaking out in part because of the #MeToo movement.

“Every girl who speaks is paving the way for another,” she told the magazine.

Trump and McDougal met at a pool party at the Playboy Mansion, where Trump was taping an episode of his television show, “The Apprentice”, McDougal wrote in the notes.

The New Yorker article, citing previously undisclosed texts, emails and legal records, elaborates on a Wall Street Journal report in 2016 about a deal requiring her to keep quiet about the alleged affair.

It included the $150,000 payment to McDougal from American Media Incorporated, publisher of the National Enquirer, which never printed her story about Trump. David Pecker, chairman and CEO of AMI, is a close friend of the president.

In the supermarket tabloid world, suppressing a story as a favor to a friend or gossip source is known as “catch and kill”.

The National Enquirer published harshly critical articles on Hillary Clinton during the presidential campaign, but AMI denies paying anyone to protect Trump from damaging stories.

McDougal's comments appeared to buttress the accounts of two other women who said Trump pursued them for sex in the early years of his marriage to Melania Trump. Both cases have sparked legal action against the president.

Trump lawyer Michael Cohen told The New York Times this week that he used “personal funds to facilitate a payment of $130,000” to Clifford just before the November 2016 election. In return, Clifford reportedly agreed to keep quiet about the alleged affair.

The non-partisan watchdog group Common Cause has filed a Federal Election Commission complaint saying the payment was an illegal campaign contribution, which Cohen denies.

Like Clifford, McDougal says she had sex with Trump at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe in July 2006.

The other woman, Summer Zervos, a former contestant on “The Apprentice”, has accused Trump of trying to force himself on her in 2006. She filed a defamation suit against him after he called her a liar.

All three women say their interactions with Trump included encounters in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel. All three also say they were escorted to the bungalow by Keith Schiller, a long-time Trump bodyguard who left his job in September as the director of Oval Office operations and deputy assistant to the president.

Kathleen Hall Jamieson, a University of Pennsylvania expert on politics and media, said the McDougal and Daniels cases were likely to have minimal political impact on Trump, whose most loyal supporters have ignored all manner of controversial statements and behavior by the president.

“Both instances in the news right now are consensual,” she said. “So it's easy for voters to say, ‘That's Melania's concern, not the voters' concern’ unless there are legal implications, which could be violating the campaign finance laws.”

Scott Basinger, another expert on political scandal, suggested Trump is also shielded by the us-versus-them tribalism of the country's politics and the support of Christian conservatives who might have been expected to respond with outrage, or at least disappointment, at his sordid conduct.

“They've said pretty explicitly that they're going to give him a mulligan on his personal life and anything that happened before he became president is not of interest to them,” said Basinger, who teaches at the University of Houston.

“As long as people believe he can deliver judges like Neil Gorsuch” — Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court — “they're willing to overlook everything else.”

Whether the first lady is willing to overlook reports about her husband's sex life is another matter.

She canceled her recently scheduled trip with the president to Davos, Switzerland, declined to ride in his limo from the White House to the Capitol for the State of the Union and has been seen swatting his hand away from hers — fueling chatter on the state of their marriage.

How much more humiliation can Melania Trump take?

By ROBIN ABCARIAN | 3:00AM PST — Tuesday, February 20, 2018

AMERICA asks a lot of its first couples. Fairly or not, they become national marital role models. We don't really care if they have separate bedrooms, but we do expect them to demonstrate a certain amount of mutual respect and fondness for each other.

We like it when they seem to be in love, like George and Laura Bush, or Barack and Michelle Obama. Even Bill and Hillary Clinton, for all their woes, seem to take pleasure in each other's intellects and achievements. We also want them to be devoted parents.

We get no good vibes from the Trump marriage.

Trump, who demands adoration (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-cabinet-meeting-praise-best-president-roosevelt-a7786841.html), would no doubt love for Melania to gaze upon him the way Nancy Reagan gazed upon her Ronnie. But Ronnie didn't cheat on Nancy with porn stars and Playmates.

What's distressing to many Americans is that Melania seems like a prop in her husband's reality show. During his inauguration last year, when the new president turned around to say something to his wife, her face lit up for a second. As soon as he turned away, her happy mask fell away. Months later, she slapped away his hand as they walked on the tarmac in Israel.

“These people are under constant scrutiny,” said University of Washington sociologist Pepper Schwartz, a sex and relationships expert. “Has anyone ever seen a loving gesture between them?”

Our first lady does not seem to be having a good time. In the last month alone, amid the daily chaos that is the Trump White House, stories about the president's womanizing, and his techniques for suppressing stories about his womanizing, have become fodder for the daily news report.

Porn star Stormy Daniels said she was paid to stay quiet about an affair she alleges she had with Trump shortly after Melania gave birth to their son, Barron. Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney and self-described “fix-it guy” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2018/02/14/longtime-trump-attorney-says-he-made-130000-payment-to-stormy-daniels-with-his-money) for the president, announced he had paid the actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2018/02/14/longtime-trump-attorney-says-he-made-130000-payment-to-stormy-daniels-with-his-money), $130,000, but has not said why.

Last week, the New Yorker reported (https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/donald-trump-a-playboy-model-and-a-system-for-concealing-infidelity-national-enquirer-karen-mcdougal) that former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal kept a diary of the nine-month affair she began with Trump in 2006, around the same time he was seeing Clifford. McDougal has said that the National Enquirer, whose publisher is a friend and protector of Trump, paid her $150,000 for the exclusive rights to her story, then never ran it. (Trump has denied (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2018/02/17/do-trumps-alleged-affairs-even-matter) both affairs.)

Melania had already skipped the billionaire confab in Davos after the Stormy Daniels payment story broke. Then came Playmate McDougal , and more wifely passive-aggression followed: On Friday, Melania's office, citing a scheduling issue, announced (https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/16/politics/melania-trump-affair-scandal-white-house/index.html) she would drive alone to Andrews Air Force Base rather than helicopter there with her husband from the White House.

Maybe Melania passed on the 'copter ride because she is getting tired of walking across the White House lawn in her stilettos, but she was also a no-show at a Mar-a-Lago dinner her husband hosted with Geraldo Rivera and her stepsons, according to The Washington Post.

Melania seems to be punishing Donald, but for what?

“I don't think she ever imagined that he was going to be faithful to her,” Schwartz said. “This is a man who has never stopped pushing himself on women. The preponderance of the evidence, as they say, is pretty convincing.”

The punishment, in that case, must be for the relentless humiliation.

SURELY, Melania Trump knew what she was getting into when she married the man who would become our 45th president.

Twenty-four years her senior, Donald Trump had already been divorced twice. He was a famous adulterer, womanizer and sexist, and a regular on shock jock Howard Stern's radio show, making proclamations about then-girlfriend Melania's breasts (https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/04/donald-melania-trump-marriage), the hotness of his own daughter (https://www.cnn.com/2016/10/08/politics/trump-on-howard-stern/index.html), his belief that when a woman turns 35, it's “checkout time.”

She rallied to his defense after the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape became public during the 2016 presidential campaign. America's future first lady dismissed her husband's boast (http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/donald-trump-howard-stern-tapes-women-35_uk_57fa46e1e4b01fa2b904368b) about being able to grab women's genitals as just “boy talk,” that her husband had been “egged on” by host Billy Bush.

And then, when more than a dozen women came forward to allege that Trump had sexually harassed or assaulted them over a period of four decades, the former model attacked the women. Their stories, she said, were “lies.”

“This was all organized from the opposition,” Melania Trump, 47, told CNN (https://www.cnn.com/2016/10/17/politics/melania-trump-interview/index.html). “Did they ever check the background of these women? They don't have any facts.”

Well, you certainly can't blame a wife for supporting her husband.

Unless, of course, she's a Democrat (https://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/01/us/politics/donald-trump-interview-bill-hillary-clinton.html), like Hillary Clinton. In which case the wife will be vilified for supporting her husband.

IN THE past year, there has been a lot of speculation about the durability of the Trumps' marriage, mostly focusing on Melania's tolerance levels. Tongue-in-cheek memes include “#FreeMelania” (https://twitter.com/hashtag/freemelania).

Thirteen months ago, at the first Women's March, there were numerous handmade posters, riffing on the first lady's generally stone-faced expression, with variations of “Melania, blink twice if you need help!” And that was long before new details about the porn star and the Playmate emerged.

A Marist Poll released on Valentine's Day (!), found that 43% of Americans think the Trumps should stay together, 34% said Melania should leave and 23% were unsure. I can't imagine what it feels like to have your marriage put to a popular vote.

Over the course of the last year, Melania's approval rating has inched up. She is now far more popular than her husband. This is not much of a surprise; most first ladies are more popular than their mates. In Melania's case, the bar was pretty low given Trump's low ratings, but good for her.

Last fall, during a White House dinner, President Trump acknowledged his wife's popularity, calling her “the star of the Trump family,” according to news reports (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/trump-calls-melania-the-star-of-the-trump-family-at-white-house-historical-association-event/article/2634520). “They love her out there, I'll tell you. We walked all over Florida. We walked all over Texas, and they're loving Melania.”

Since he has a history of walking all over his marriage, it's good to know that someone is loving Melania.

I don't mind if you keep your head buried in the sand.

Because when the PROOF of the TRUTH finally comes out about all of Trump's dealings, it will make you look 100% TOTALLY STUPID!!

Round one will be the lawsuit in the New York State court system from the woman molested by Trump who is suing him for defamation for calling her a liar.

Remember when Trump said he was going to sue all of those women after the election? Well that election was considerably more than a year ago and he still hasn't done what he said he was going to do. I wonder why? Perhaps it was all BLUFF (ie....piss & wind) because Trump KNOWS he sexually molested all of those woman and he is scared about what might come out in court after various lawyers get granted “discovery” by the court to dig through his affairs.

However, Trump cannot stop the lawsuit against him and as it is in a State court and not a Federal court, he has no powers of parden. Hahaha!!!

Playmate, porn star and reality TV contestant in court over Trump

After weeks of reports about Stormy Daniels, former playmate Karen McDougal filed
a lawsuit to break her silence on her alleged affair with Trump and a judge allowed
a defamation case bought by reality tv contestant Summer Zervos to proceed.


(https://www.washingtonpost.com/resizer/SMiprqyOK9pdXfihU9o-UJojw-Y=/480x0/arc-anglerfish-washpost-prod-washpost.s3.amazonaws.com/public/SAQ66FRMSEI6RBUI4BJ3UWHR4Q.jpg) (https://www.washingtonpost.com/resizer/SMiprqyOK9pdXfihU9o-UJojw-Y=/480x0/arc-anglerfish-washpost-prod-washpost.s3.amazonaws.com/public/SAQ66FRMSEI6RBUI4BJ3UWHR4Q.jpg)

A JUDGE ruled on Tuesday that a former “Apprentice” contestant's defamation lawsuit against President Trump may proceed, potentially allowing her lawyers to begin collecting evidence to support her claim that he forcibly kissed and groped her years ago.

The decision in the case brought by Summer Zervos came on the same day a former Playboy playmate, Karen McDougal, sued the publisher of the National Enquirer for the right to break her silence about the 10-month affair she says she had with Trump more than a decade ago.

The nearly simultaneous developments added to the political and legal challenges for the president, who has faced weeks of reports about his alleged affair with another woman, porn star Stormy Daniels, and his attorney's effort to buy her silence.

All three women are now seeking to tell their stories on their own terms. McDougal is scheduled to give an interview on Thursday to CNN's Anderson Cooper, while “60 Minutes” is scheduled to air an interview with Daniels on Sunday.

As she rejected Trump's effort to block Zervos's lawsuit (https://www.washingtonpost.com/apps/g/page/politics/judges-ruling-lets-summer-zervos-defamation-suit-against-president-trump-go-forward/2288) from proceeding, New York Supreme Court Justice Jennifer G. Schecter cited precedent from the Paula Jones case against President Bill Clinton, which led to his impeachment in 1998.

“No one is above the law,” Schecter wrote. “It is settled that the President of the United States has no immunity and is ‘subject to the laws’ for purely private acts.”

Zervos has said that Trump kissed her against her will when she visited him at Trump Tower in December 2007, after she had left his show, and that he kissed her, groped her breast and “began to press his genitals against her” when they met for dinner later that month in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

She first spoke publicly in October 2016 at a news conference with other women accusing Trump of misconduct. She filed the defamation suit the following January, after Trump called the women “liars” and vowed to sue them.

Zervos's attorneys have said that, in the legal process known as discovery, they would seek a deposition from Trump. It is likely, though, that Trump's attorneys will appeal Schecter's ruling, and a deposition, if there ever is one, could be months or years away.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to prove that the Defendant falsely branded Ms. Zervos a phony for telling the truth about his unwanted sexual groping,” Mariann Meier Wang, co-counsel for Zervos with Gloria Allred, wrote in an email.

Marc Kasowitz and Michael Cohen, two of Trump's personal attorneys, did not respond to requests for comment. The White House also did not respond to a request for comment.

Trump's attorneys had argued that the president cannot be sued in state court (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2017/07/07/trump-urges-dismissal-of-apprentice-contestants-lawsuit) and also that his comments were political opinion (https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-was-expressing-political-opinion-by-calling-sexual-harassment-accusers-liars-his-attorneys-argue/2017/11/01/385e755a-beec-11e7-959c-fe2b598d8c00_story.html) and, as a result, “squarely protected by the First Amendment.” Schecter dismissed those arguments.

McDougal's lawsuit is against American Media Incorporated, the publisher of the National Enquirer, which she says paid her $150,000 in exchange for her silence.

McDougal is asking the court to declare her contract with AMI void, saying her story about the president “is core political speech entitled to the highest protection under the law.”

AMI did not respond to a request for comment.

The lawsuit, in Los Angeles Superior Court, comes two weeks after Daniels sued Trump (https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/porn-star-stormy-daniels-sues-president-trump/2018/03/06/1ad8e60a-21a7-11e8-a589-763893265565_story.html) to invalidate her own confidentiality agreement. Daniels's deal was with Cohen, who has said he “facilitated” a payment of $130,000 using his own money. Cohen has sought to keep Daniels quiet through private arbitration, alleging in a court filing (https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/trump-attorney-accuses-stormy-daniels-of-violating-nondisclosure-agreement-20-times-claims-right-to-seek-20-million-in-damages/2018/03/16/a5fd1686-296b-11e8-b79d-f3d931db7f68_story.html) that she could owe as much as $20 million for violating the agreement.

In an effort to build anticipation for the interview, her attorney, Michael Avenatti, on Tuesday released a 2011 report on the results of a polygraph test (https://www.washingtonpost.com/apps/g/page/politics/read-the-report-on-stormy-daniels-polygraph-test/2290) that Daniels took as part of a magazine interview about the alleged affair. The report says Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was being “truthful” in saying she and Trump had unprotected sex.

In an interview, Avenatti said he recently paid $25,000 for video footage of the polygraph exam “in order to avoid one or more third parties from obtaining the information and destroying it or using it for nefarious means.”

He posted an image from the video on Twitter of Daniels sitting in a chair and strapped to a polygraph machine.

“I am not going anywhere,” Daniels wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

McDougal's lawsuit in some respects echoes a complaint made to the Federal Election Commission by the government watchdog group Common Cause alleging that AMI coordinated with the Trump campaign when it negotiated a “catch and kill” agreement to ensure McDougal's story was quashed. The complaint says the payments were intended to influence the election and should have been reported as in-kind campaign donations.

“Her complaint today reinforces what we alleged in our complaint,” Paul S. Ryan, a Common Cause vice president, said of McDougal's lawsuit.

McDougal's 10-month relationship with Trump remained a secret until May 2016, the lawsuit says, when another Playboy playmate alluded to the affair on Twitter, prompting McDougal to explore how she might tell her story about the Republican presidential nominee.

McDougal hired Keith Davidson, a Los Angeles lawyer. Over a dinner involving “multiple bottles of wine,” the suit says, Davidson told her that AMI had put $500,000 in an escrow account and that a seven-figure publishing deal awaited her.

He later acknowledged that there had been no such escrow payment, according to the complaint. The lawsuit alleges that Davidson was working with AMI executives to fool McDougal into signing a contract that was not in her interest, falsely allowing her to believe the tabloid would publish regular fitness columns under her name. It also alleges that Cohen was briefed on the deal.

“We are confident that the so-called contract will be invalidated, and are eager for Ms. McDougal to be able to move forward with her life with the privacy she deserves,” said McDougal’s lawyer, Peter K. Stris.

In a statement on Tuesday, Davidson said he “fulfilled his obligations and zealously advocated for Ms. McDougal to accomplish her stated goals at that time.”

AMI's offer to buy her story for $150,000 was not to publish it but to bury it. By then, McDougal had “cold feet” about telling the story publicly, the lawsuit says. Davidson also told her that the deal meant she would appear on two magazine covers and she would write dozens of fitness columns for AMI's print and online magazines, the suit says.

But the agreement did not actually guarantee that AMI would publish her columns, according to the complaint.

Still, the company was swift to threaten McDougal with legal action should she speak about the agreement, the suit says, as it did after she gave an interview to the New Yorker (https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/donald-trump-a-playboy-model-and-a-system-for-concealing-infidelity-national-enquirer-karen-mcdougal) last month. AMI's general counsel emailed McDougal's attorney to threaten her with “considerable monetary damages” if she said anything more.

“Ms. McDougal thought (naively) that such a deal could give her the best of all worlds — her private story could stay private, she could make money, and she could revitalize her career,” the suit says. “What she did not realize was that she would end up treated as a puppet by powerful men colluding to achieve their own financial and political ends.”

In a statement on Tuesday, McDougal said, “I just want the opportunity to set the record straight and move on with my life, free from this company, its executives, and its lawyers.”

Trump's personal scandals piling up in courts

The president's sex scandals threaten to affect the GOP's standing.

By MARK Z. BARABAK and MICHAEL FINNEGAN | Wednesday, March 21, 2018

(http://origin.misc.pagesuite.com/3630c326-c935-42f5-b0da-daebc36b7646/images/IMG_LA-2486404_ME_1014_T_2_1_0Q3FEN4L.jpg) (http://origin.misc.pagesuite.com/3630c326-c935-42f5-b0da-daebc36b7646/images/IMG_LA-2486404_ME_1014_T_2_1_0Q3FEN4L.jpg)

PRESIDENT TRUMP faced new legal and political jeopardy on Tuesday as a former Playboy Playmate and alleged paramour sued to break a confidentiality agreement and a judge rejected his move to quash a lawsuit stemming from a charge of sexual assault.

The developments, coming on opposite coasts, promised months — if not years — of legal skirmishing, keeping Trump's personal conduct at the fore of this election season and complicating GOP efforts to protect their congressional majorities in November.

The White House and Republican leaders on Capitol Hill responded with silence.

Even as special counsel Robert S. Mueller III probes Russian interference in the 2016 campaign and investigates Trump's tangled financial dealings, the president is confronting salacious accusations from his days as a footloose — albeit married — reality TV star and man about Manhattan.

In three separate lawsuits, he is accused of sexually mauling a former contestant on “The Apprentice”, his show set in a corporate boardroom, and paying money to hush two alleged lovers, the former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, 46, and pornographic actress Stormy Daniels, 39.

In Los Angeles on Tuesday, McDougal filed a suit seeking to end the confidentiality agreement keeping her from speaking openly about her allegations of a 2006 affair with Trump, following a similar move earlier this month by Daniels. McDougal accused her former attorney of undermining her interests by secretly colluding with Trump's legal team and American Media Incorporated, publisher of the National Enquirer.

American Media paid McDougal $150,000 in 2016 for the rights to her story about a romance with Trump, a deal that prohibits her from sharing details elsewhere. The firm, led by a close friend of Trump, never published the story — a practice known in the tabloid industry as “catch and kill.”

“AMI lied to me, made empty promises, and repeatedly intimidated and manipulated me,” McDougal said in a statement. “I just want the opportunity to set the record straight and move on with my life, free from this company, its executives and its lawyers.”

In New York, meanwhile, a judge ruled that an Orange County woman who accused Trump of sexually assaulting her at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2007 can proceed with a defamation lawsuit. The ruling opened the prospect of the president facing deeply personal questioning under oath.

Justice Jennifer G. Schecter of New York state court rejected a request by Trump's lawyers that she dismiss the case filed last year by Summer Zervos, 43, a former contestant on his show.

As the 2016 election neared, Zervos said Trump tried to force himself on her at a 2007 dinner in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel. He said Zervos and nine other women accusing him of sexual misconduct were lying; Zervos countered with the defamation suit seeking a retraction, an apology and unspecified damages. Her complaint said he “knowingly, intentionally and maliciously threw each and every one of these women under the bus, with conscious disregard of the impact that repeatedly calling them liars would have upon their lives and reputations.”

Seeking dismissal of the case, Trump's lawyers argued that the Constitution protects him from being sued in state court while president. They also said his comments dismissing accusations were “fiery rhetoric” and hyperbole protected by the 1st Amendment.

In denying their motion, Schecter said “no one is above the law” and cited a 1997 U.S. Supreme Court decision that allowed a sexual harassment case against President Clinton to move forward in federal court while he was in office. Schecter rejected arguments by Trump lawyers that the federal ruling did not apply to state courts.

“State courts can manage lawsuits against the president based on private unofficial conduct just as well as federal courts,” Schecter said. She also turned down Trump's request to halt proceedings until he left the White House, saying there was “absolutely no authority” for doing that.

The president's attorneys have the right to appeal the decision, first to a panel of judges in Manhattan and then to New York's highest court — a process that could drag out for years and extend well into Trump's 2020 campaign for re-election.

Attorneys for both sides declined to comment on further moves.

While Schecter's ruling stuck largely to legalities and a dry recitation of facts, McDougal's lawsuit included sordid details and allegations of a double-cross by her attorney, who she says was colluding with Trump.

McDougal says she and Trump had a 10-month relationship in 2006 and 2007, including a sexual encounter at the same Lake Tahoe golf event where Trump allegedly started an extramarital affair with Daniels. His wife, Melania, had recently given birth to their son, Barron.

McDougal, Playboy's 1998 Playmate of the Year, had something else in common with Daniels: Both employed the services of Keith Davidson, a Beverly Hills entertainment lawyer.

McDougal said Davidson “assured her that the rights to publish her story were worth millions” but was secretly advancing Trump's interests while pretending to advocate on her behalf.

McDougal, now an actress and fitness model, claimed in her suit that collusion between the publishing firm, Trump's representatives and her lawyer nullified her non-disclosure agreement with AMI, allowing her to publicly discuss the relationship.

In a written statement, a spokesman for Davidson said the attorney “fulfilled his obligations and zealously advocated for Ms. McDougal to accomplish her stated goals at that time.”

American Media issued a statement saying the firm “has a valid contract with Ms. McDougal and we look forward to reaching an amicable resolution satisfactory to her and to AMI.”

Stormy Daniels argues her non-disclosure agreement is moot. — Photograph: Ethan Miller/Getty Images.

In a suit filed earlier this month, Daniels sought to invalidate her non-disclosure deal with Trump, saying he failed to sign the document and thus rendered it moot. Trump's lawyers, in turn, say she could owe him as much as $20 million in damages for breaking the pact.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was paid $130,000 in hush money by the president's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and has limited her public statements about Trump to broad hints and innuendo about an alleged affair from July 2006 into 2007.

Daniels surfaced during Tuesday on Twitter with a taunting message. “Technically I didn't sleep with the POTUS 12 years ago,” she wrote. “There was no sleeping (hehe). But … People DO care that he lied about it, had me bullied, broke laws to cover it up, etc.”

Daniels ended with, “I am NOT going anywhere.” Indeed, she is scheduled to appear during Sunday on CBS' “60 Minutes” in an interview taped earlier this month.

Stormy Daniels Tells ‘60 Minutes’ Fear Kept Her Silent on Trump

The pornographic film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told “60 Minutes” that a man
had threatened her after she sold her claims of an affair with Donald Trump to a magazine in 2011.

THE pornographic film star Stephanie Clifford told “60 Minutes” that she struck a $130,000 deal for her silence about an alleged affair with Donald J. Trump in the final days of the 2016 campaign because she was worried about her safety and that of her young daughter.

That concern, she told “60 Minutes” in an interview broadcast on Sunday night, was based on a threat she received in 2011 from a man who approached her in Las Vegas. She said the threat came after she sold her story about Mr. Trump for $15,000 to Bauer Publishing, which finally published the interview in its magazine InTouch (http://www.intouchweekly.com/posts/stormy-daniels-full-interview-151788) early this year. Bauer had initially decided not to run it after Mr. Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, threatened to sue.

“I was in a parking lot going to a fitness class with my infant daughter,” she told the “60 Minutes” correspondent and CNN host Anderson Cooper. “And a guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story’. And he leaned round and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That's a beautiful little girl, it would be a shame if something happened to her mom’.”

Ms. Clifford said she did not go to the police after the threat, but when, years later, a lawyer came to her with an offer brokered by Mr. Cohen in the final days of the presidential campaign, she took it because “I was concerned for my family and their safety.”

Ms. Clifford's interview — which made for the most anticipated episode of “60 Minutes” in recent memory — was something of a national event, one marked by viewing parties and “Dark and Stormy” cocktail specials at bars, a nod to her professional name, Stormy Daniels.

And it was a quintessential moment of the Trump presidency — a tabloid-ready scandal and must-see television — that carried potential legal implications for Mr. Trump and his longtime lawyer and personal fixer, Michael Cohen. Until Sunday's broadcast, Ms. Clifford had kept her public appearances to the strip club circuit — what she called her “Make America Horny Again” (https://nypost.com/2018/01/21/stormy-daniels-making-america-horny-again-tour-starts-with-a-bang) tour. But, in speaking with Mr. Cooper, she chose business-like attire that was in keeping with the seriousness of the legal case she is making, that she had been silenced in a cover-up effort to protect the presidential prospects of Mr. Trump.

Ms. Clifford is one of two women who have recently filed suit (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/20/us/ex-playboy-model-sues-to-break-silence-on-trump.html) seeking to get out of agreements they said they entered during the last stretch of the 2016 campaign to give up the rights to their stories about what they have said were affairs with Mr. Trump. The other woman, a former Playmate named Karen McDougal, sold her rights to the company that owns The National Enquirer — which never published it — and spoke to Mr. Cooper on CNN on Thursday. Representatives for Mr. Trump have denied that he had an affair with either woman.

Both cases present potentially consequential legal challenges for Mr. Trump, forming the basis of complaints that have been filed with the Federal Election Commission and the Justice Department (http://www.commoncause.org/press/press-releases/FECcomplaintStormyDaniels.html) saying that the payments constituted illegal campaign contributions.

Ms. Clifford's appearance on “60 Minutes” showed that the effort to keep her story from public view had failed spectacularly — just as statements from Mr. Cohen that he would seek millions of dollars in damages from her for violating a hush agreement had not kept her from appearing on what is often the highest-rated program in television news.

Shortly after “60 Minutes” aired, a lawyer for Mr. Cohen, Brent H. Blakely, sent a cease-and-desist letter to Ms. Clifford's new lawyer, Michael Avenatti. It accused him and Ms. Clifford of defaming Mr. Cohen in relation to the threat she says she received and demanding a public apology.

“Mr. Cohen had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with any such person or incident, and does not even believe that any such person exists, or that such incident ever occurred,” Mr. Blakely wrote. “You and your client's false statements about Mr. Cohen accuse him of criminal conduct and constitute, among other things, libel per se and intentional infliction of emotional distress.”

During the interview Mr. Cooper asked Ms. Clifford why she was taking the legally risky route of sitting for a nationally televised interview. “I was perfectly fine saying nothing at all, but I'm not O.K. with being made out to be a liar,” she said.

Ms. Clifford had first threatened to speak out in February, after, she said, Mr. Cohen broke his part of the previously secret 2016 agreement by telling The New York Times that he had paid the $130,000 from his own pocket. He has denied Mr. Trump had an affair with Ms. Clifford.

The White House was quiet ahead of the airing of Ms. Clifford's interview, though an ally of Mr. Trump's, the Newsmax founder and editor in chief, Christopher Ruddy, told ABC News earlier on Sunday that Mr. Trump considered her story “a political hoax” (http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-stormy-daniels-stuff-political-hoax-ally-words/story?id=54000127). Mr. Trump spent the evening before the interview dining at his club in Palm Beach, Mar-a-Lago, with Mr. Cohen.

Ms. Clifford said during the interview that while she had seen Mr. Trump more than once, she had had sex with him a single time, unprotected. That happened shortly after they met at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in 2006. (Ms. McDougal has also said that she, too, was intimate with Mr. Trump during that event.) Mr. Trump was 60 at the time; Ms. Clifford was 27.

Ms. Clifford said that Mr. Trump had invited her to his hotel suite for dinner, and that their banter began with him showing her a magazine cover featuring his photograph. “I was like, ‘Someone should take that magazine and spank you with it’.” she said. “So he turned around and pulled his pants down a little — you know, had underwear on and stuff, and I just gave him a couple swats.”

It was done in a joking manner, she said, and the flirtation — which included Mr. Trump comparing Ms. Clifford to his daughter — led to intercourse, though, she said, she had not been particularly attracted to Mr. Trump and had not wanted to have sex with him. (She said she nonetheless went along of her own accord.)

“He said that it was great,” she said, and told her he had had “a great evening, and it was nothing like he expected, that I really surprised him, that a lot of people must underestimate me — that he hoped that I would be willing to see him again, and that we would discuss the things we had talked about earlier in the evening.”

Mr. Trump, she said, had raised the possibility that he get her onto his reality show, “Celebrity Apprentice”, but it would not come to be.

She said that he had invited her to his Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow in 2007 to fill her in on that promise. The entertainment for the night, she said, was a “Shark Week” documentary. Mr. Trump, she said, wanted to have sex but this time she did not go along with it, and when he did not have an answer for her about being on the show, she left. She said he told her over the phone a month later that he would not be able to get her onto the program and that was effectively the end of it.

But when her story threatened to surface again in 2016, Ms. Clifford said, her lawyer, Keith Davidson, called her. “I think I have the best deal for you,” she said Mr. Davidson told her, presenting Mr. Cohen's offer. (Mr. Davidson had also represented Ms. McDougal.)

When Mr. Cooper said some viewers would be skeptical that Ms. Clifford had made her decision because of a threat made years earlier, she said she “didn't even negotiate” and “just quickly said ‘yes’, to this very, you know, strict contract, and what most people will agree with me, extremely low number.” Ms. Clifford also said that she had “turned down a large pay-day multiple times.”

Ms. Clifford said that she can remember the man's face to this day and would recognize him immediately. Mr. Avenatti said earlier this month that she had been threatened, although he did not provide any details. At the time, the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said, “Obviously we take the safety and security of any person seriously, certainly would condemn anyone threatening any individual” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/politics/sanders-has-no-knowledge-of-threats-against-stormy-daniels/2018/03/16/367d539e-294c-11e8-a227-fd2b009466bc_video.html).

When the story about the payoff first broke earlier this year, Ms. Clifford had signed a statement emphatically denying that an affair had taken place. She told Mr. Cooper that she had been told that if she failed to sign it, “they can make your life hell in many different ways.” That sentiment, she indicated, was based on the terms of the agreement, not on any new threat of physical violence, though, she said, she felt both “intimidated” and “bullied.”

Lawyers for Mr. Cohen have said that Ms. Clifford faces $20 million in penalties for violating an agreement to remain quiet and that the agreement was still binding.

Ms. Clifford's suit hinges on Mr. Avenatti's argument that the agreement is invalid (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/08/us/politics/stormy-daniels-trump-legal-case.html) because Mr. Trump had not signed it. Mr. Cohen signed the agreement, representing the Delaware shell company Essential Consultants, through which he paid Ms. Clifford.

Mr. Cohen has denied any involvement by the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign. But Mr. Avenatti, through his various media appearances, has been trying to build a case that Mr. Cohen was acting in his capacity as a lawyer at the Trump Organization when he worked on the agreement. He presented new evidence on “60 Minutes”: a FedEx envelope showing that Mr. Davidson had sent the contract to Mr. Cohen at his office at the Trump Organization, and addressed a cover letter to him in his official Trump Organization capacity.

Mr. Cooper pressed Ms. Clifford on whether she was not coming forward to cash in on her affair now that Mr. Trump had become president. She did not apologize for the extra money she says she is already making as a dancer because of the surrounding publicity, but noted that she was also opening herself up to real financial risk.

Asked what she would tell the president if he was watching, she said, “He knows I'm telling the truth.”

Trump Can't Stop Tweeting, but Goes Silent on Stormy Daniels

After sixty-one weeks in the White House, President Trump
has found someone he won't attack on Twitter: Stormy Daniels.

By MICHAEL D. SHEAR and MAGGIE HABERMAN | 8:02AM EDT — Monday, March 26, 2018

WASHINGTON — After 61 weeks in the White House, President Trump has found two people he won't attack on Twitter: Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal.

The verbose commander in chief has posted more than 2,900 times on Twitter since taking office, using the term “FAKE NEWS” to describe everything from the Russia inquiry and allegations of chaos in the White House to harassment accusations, the size of his inaugural crowds and heated arguments with world leaders.

But he has been uncharacteristically silent in recent days — to the relief of his advisers — as a pornographic film star and a Playboy model described intimate details of sexual encounters with Mr. Trump. Stephanie Clifford, known in pornographic films as Stormy Daniels, said during Sunday night on CBS's “60 Minutes” that she once spanked the president with a copy of Forbes magazine bearing his face on the cover.

The fact that the president has not given oxygen to the headlines, however, does not mean that he is content.

Inside the White House, Mr. Trump is eager to defend himself against allegations that he insists are false, those close to him say. And he is growing increasingly frustrated with breathless, wall-to-wall news media coverage of the salacious details from the two women.

On Monday, Ms. Clifford's lawyer added new charges to the suit she filed: that the president's lawyer defamed Ms. Clifford in denying her claims; that he and Mr. Trump pursued the deal to specifically help Mr. Trump's election prospects; and that he then structured the agreement to shield from public view what was, effectively, an illegal $130,000 campaign gift.

In discussions with allies and some aides, Mr. Trump has privately railed against Ms. Clifford, and insisted that she is not telling the truth. He has reminded advisers that he joined an effort to enforce financial penalties against Ms. Clifford, whose TV interview on Sunday night was hyped throughout the weekend on the cable news channels that Mr. Trump watches obsessively.

But there has been no debate among Mr. Trump's advisers about the best course for him: just keep quiet about a story that would only be fueled by a presidential tweet or a comment about the women shouted above the roar of Marine One.

Keeping a lid on Mr. Trump is never easy, especially when he is eager to hit back at his adversaries.

In the days after an “Access Hollywood” video exposed his own lewd comments about women during the final month of the campaign, Mr. Trump responded by showing up at his debate with Hillary Clinton with three women who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual improprieties.

As a candidate, and as president, Mr. Trump has eagerly attacked just about all of his enemies and accusers, often with colorful nicknames like “Little Rocket Man” for the North Korean leader, “Crazy Joe Biden” or “Sloppy Steve” Bannon.

But for now, it appears that the president is listening to — and accepting — his advisers' warnings on the dangers of speaking out about the women, much the way he followed the advice of his lawyers for a year not to attack Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel in the Russia inquiry.

Recently, he has ditched that advice, attacking Mr. Mueller and his team directly on Twitter. That leaves only his alleged mistresses and President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia as people who are immune to Mr. Trump's Twitter trash-talk.

Raj Shah, a deputy White House press secretary, declined to say “what the president may or may not have seen” on television on Sunday night, though he said that Mr. Trump denies the allegations that Ms. Clifford made in the CBS interview.

“I'll just say that he's consistently denied these allegations,” Mr. Shah said. “The president doesn't believe that any of the claims that Ms. Daniels made last night in the interview are accurate.”

Mr. Trump dined at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida on Saturday evening with Michael D. Cohen, his lawyer and longtime aide who is at the center of the Clifford scandal, according to three people familiar with the get-together. The president scheduled the meeting himself, surprising his aides with it a short time before Mr. Cohen arrived, people familiar with the meeting said.

Melania Trump, too, has been silent about the allegations. Asked to react to the interviews, Stephanie Grisham, Mrs. Trump's spokeswoman, said: “She's focusing on being a mother, she's quite enjoying her spring break and she's focused on future projects.”

It is not clear whether Mr. Trump watched a similar tell-all interview on CNN on Thursday evening, when Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model, alleged a 10-month romantic affair with Mr. Trump in which they repeatedly had sex.

Sunday's interview with Ms. Clifford contained few surprises but some humiliating details, such as Ms. Clifford saying she was not attracted to Mr. Trump, and her recollection of spanking him. Virility and strength are key traits that the president likes to project, and he once gloated about a New York Post headline quoting a friend of his second wife, Marla Maples, who recalled Ms. Maples saying that Mr. Trump was the “Best Sex I've Ever Had.”

In the interview, Ms. Clifford said that she had flirted with Mr. Trump in 2006 at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe. She said Mr. Trump had compared her favorably to his daughter during the flirtation, and that she had intercourse with Mr. Trump.

She also alleged that an unknown person whom she believed to be connected to Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen threatened her in a parking lot in 2011, telling her, “leave Trump alone. Forget the story.” Then looking at her infant daughter, he added, “That's a beautiful little girl. It would be a shame if something happened to her mom.”

Asked by Anderson Cooper whether she had anything to say to Mr. Trump, if he was watching on Sunday night, Ms. Clifford said, “He knows I'm telling the truth.”

Even that has not prompted Mr. Trump to directly address the central allegations from Ms. Clifford and Ms. McDougal — that the president cheated on his wife shortly after Mrs. Trump gave birth to their son.

Mr. Trump did type out a vague “Fake News” tweet (https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/978249938743234560) on Monday morning, although it is unclear to what he was referring.

Beyond the details of the alleged encounters, Mr. Trump's advisers have been urging the president to keep quiet about the legal wrangling concerning Ms. Clifford and Ms. McDougal.

Ms. McDougal, who accepted $150,000 from the parent company of the National Enquirer to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Mr. Trump, is suing the company to be released from the contract. Mr. Cohen has acknowledged paying Ms. Clifford $130,000 in the days before the 2016 election to keep quiet about her allegations.

Mr. Shah said at the White House on Monday that “I can say categorically that, obviously, the White House didn't engage in any wrong-doing.”

Asked about why Mr. Trump's lawyer would pay Ms. Clifford $130,000 if her allegations were false, Mr. Shah said that “false charges are settled out of court all the time.” He referred further questions about the case to Mr. Cohen.

The lawyer for Ms. Clifford has aggressively argued that his client is not bound by the non-disclosure agreement that she signed, in part because Mr. Trump himself never signed the document. Michael Avenatti, the lawyer, has repeatedly used Trump-like insinuations to suggest that Ms. Clifford has digital evidence of the intercourse.

“We have a litany of more evidence in this case, and it's going to be disclosed, and it's going to be laid bare for the American public,” Mr. Avenatti said in an interview on Monday morning on ABC's “Good Morning America”.

Last week, Mr. Avenatti tweeted a picture of a CD or DVD (https://twitter.com/MichaelAvenatti/status/977015170231885825) with the suggestive caption: “If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is this worth??? #60minutes #pleasedenyit #basta”.

Even that has not prompted a presidential retort — yet.

Trump team and Stormy Daniels each accuse the other of lying
as clash over alleged affair escalates

By MICHAEL FINNEGAN | 8:55PM PDT — Monday, March 26, 2018

(http://www.latimes.com/resizer/dAtumECan38lzkelLOE7uzgBeJw=/1400x0/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-tronc.s3.amazonaws.com/public/M623C6WR5NG4TKH4YILQQ7CIMY.jpg) (http://www.latimes.com/resizer/dAtumECan38lzkelLOE7uzgBeJw=/1400x0/arc-anglerfish-arc2-prod-tronc.s3.amazonaws.com/public/M623C6WR5NG4TKH4YILQQ7CIMY.jpg)

THE CLASH between Stormy Daniels and President Trump intensified on Monday in the aftermath of the porn star's “60 Minutes” interview, with each side claiming the other is lying about an alleged sexual encounter in Lake Tahoe.

The spectacle of an adult entertainer recalling the time she spanked a future president with a magazine featuring his face on the cover was a major draw for CBS on Sunday night; more than 21 million viewers tuned in.

Tawdry details aside, the legal stakes — and political trouble for Trump — mounted on Monday as Daniels filed a defamation claim against the president's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Cohen in effect called Daniels a liar last month in a public statement challenging her comments about having sex with Trump, her complaint said.

He “made the statement knowing it was false or had serious doubts about the truth,” Daniels charged in papers filed in Los Angeles federal court.

The complaint, expanding on a lawsuit she filed against Trump on March 6, accused Cohen of breaking federal law when he set up a shell corporation to pay her $130,000 in hush money 11 days before the November 2016 presidential election.

Former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who was also paid during the campaign to stay quiet about an alleged 10-month romance with Trump, has filed a similar lawsuit. Both suits say the payments were meant to influence the election by keeping Trump's extramarital affairs from voters and thus were illegal campaign donations.

Cohen, who had dinner with Trump over the weekend at the president's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, did not respond to emails seeking comment. He has denied the payments to the women had anything to do with Trump's run for president.

Trump maintained his uncharacteristic silence about Daniels on Monday, letting White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah speak for him. Shah declined to say whether the president watched her on “60 Minutes”, but attacked Daniels' credibility on his behalf.

“The president doesn't believe that any of the claims that Ms. Daniels made last night in the interview are accurate,” Shah said.

Daniels, he said, had no corroboration for her charge that a man threatened her with physical harm if she were to go public with her story about Trump.

Daniels, 39, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told CBS that the man confronted her and her infant daughter in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 after Cohen learned she had told a magazine reporter about having sex with Trump.

The man warned Daniels not to talk about her relationship with Trump. He glanced at her baby and said, “It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom,” according to Daniels.

Cohen's lawyer demanded a retraction and apology from Daniels, saying she'd suggested on “60 Minutes” that Cohen was behind that threat.

Although Daniels did not accuse Cohen of arranging the threat, her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said on television networks on Monday that it had to have been Cohen or someone else involved with Trump.

In a letter to Avenatti, Cohen's lawyer, Brent H. Blakely, said statements blaming Cohen for the threat were false and defamatory.

“In truth, Mr. Cohen had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with any such person or incident, and does not even believe that any such person exists, or that such incident ever occurred,” Blakely wrote.

Blakely called on Daniels and Avenatti to make clear through the media “that you have no facts or evidence whatsoever to support your allegations that my client had anything whatsoever to do with this alleged thug.”

Avenatti responded by taunting Cohen.

“Will this guy ever come clean with the American people or is he more interested in trying to role play Ray Donovan (badly),” Avenatti told the Los Angeles Times in a text message, referring to the television show about a shady fixer.

Daniels' lawsuit seeks to void the October 2016 confidentiality agreement that bars her from talking about the alleged affair. The pact requires Daniels to pay Trump $1 million each time she violates the terms.

Lawyers for Trump say she had already done so at least 20 times even before the “60 Minutes” interview. She could be liable for more than $20 million in damages, they say.

Trump's legal team has requested a court order forcing Daniels to settle the dispute in private arbitration, as required by the confidentiality agreement.

In her updated legal complaint, Daniels argues that requirement was specifically designed “to prevent public disclosure of an illegal campaign contribution.” It also suppresses speech on a matter of enormous public concern about a presidential candidate, her legal papers say.

At the White House, Shah declined to comment on allegations that Cohen broke federal law when he arranged payment of the hush money.

“The campaign or Mr. Cohen can address anything with respect to their actions,” Shah said.

More broadly, Shah said, Trump “strongly, clearly and has consistently denied these underlying claims, and the only person who's been inconsistent is the one making the claims.”

Trump actually has never spoken publicly about Daniels, leaving the task to Cohen and White House press aides.

As for the rationale for the $130,000 payment, Shah said: “False charges are settled out of court all the time. You have to ask Michael Cohen about the specifics.”

Trump is also facing legal trouble in New York, where former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos is suing him for defamation.

A few weeks before the presidential election, Zervos accused him of trying to force himself on her in his bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2007. He called her a liar, prompting her lawsuit.

With the surge of news on the sex scandals, a spokeswoman for First Lady Melania Trump urged the media to stop mentioning the couple's son, Barron.

At the time of Trump's alleged extramarital affairs in 2006, Barron, who turned 12 last week, was a baby.

The first lady remained at Mar-a-Lago when the president returned to the White House on Sunday night after a weekend getaway at the estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

Cohen has a history of using aggressive tactics on Trump's behalf.

NBC anchor Megyn Kelly, who sparred with Trump when he was running for president, posted a sample on Sunday night on Twitter: Cohen's 2015 threats against Tim Mak, then a reporter at the Daily Beast.

Mak asked Cohen about a deposition by Ivana Trump in which the president's first wife alleged that Trump raped her in 1989.

“I will make sure that you and I meet one day while we're in the courthouse. And I will take you for every penny you still don't have,” Cohen responded, according to the Daily Beast.

With a burst of profanity, Cohen warned Mak to tread lightly, because he was going to do something disgusting to the reporter.

“You write a story that has Mr. Trump's name in it, with the word ‘rape’, and I'm going to mess your life up … for as long as you're on this frickin' planet,” Cohen told Mak, adding, “you're going to have judgments against you, so much money, you'll never know how to get out from underneath it.”

When Ivana Trump's statement about rape became public after the couple's 1991 divorce, she said the incident had made her feel “violated,” but did not want her accusation interpreted “in a literal or criminal sense.”

Avenatti also sought to draw attention to Cohen's threats against the Daily Beast. “This is a man who has a history of thuggish behavior, using intimidation tactics, and trying to step on little people,” Avenatti said on “CBS This Morning”. “And as it relates to my client, it's going to come to an end, and we're going to show the American people exactly who Michael Cohen is.”

Trump Denies Knowing of Any Hush Money Paid to Porn Actress

In his first public remarks on the matter, President Trump told reporters that he knew nothing about
the $130,000 paid to Stormy Daniels, remarks that could complicate his legal battle against her.

By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS | Thursday, April 05, 2018

(https://static01.nyt.com/images/2018/04/06/us/politics/06dc-stormy/merlin_136437492_7f915267-15dd-49e6-ad13-f4d47973fa40-jumbo.jpg) (https://static01.nyt.com/images/2018/04/06/us/politics/06dc-stormy/merlin_136437492_7f915267-15dd-49e6-ad13-f4d47973fa40-jumbo.jpg)

WASHINGTON — President Trump denied on Thursday knowing of a $130,000 payment (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/12/us/trump-stephanie-clifford-stormy-daniels.html) his lawyer made to a pornographic film actress (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/24/style/stormy-daniels.html) who claims to have had a sexual encounter with him, an assertion that threatened to complicate his legal battle against her.

Mr. Trump made his first public remarks about the matter aboard Air Force One as he returned to Washington from White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, where he had held a round table on tax cuts (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/05/us/politics/trump-democrats-immigration-votes.html). Asked by a reporter if he knew about the payment to the actress, Stormy Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, he said, “No.”

Asked why Michael D. Cohen, his personal lawyer, had made the payment, Mr. Trump said: “You'll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney, and you'll have to ask Michael Cohen.”

The president said he did not know where the money had come from, and ignored a question about whether he ever set up a fund Mr. Cohen could draw from.

Ms. Clifford has said that she was paid $130,000 before the 2016 election to buy her silence. She is now suing Mr. Trump (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/06/us/stormy-daniels-trump-lawsuit.html) to abrogate a non-disclosure agreement that was supposed to prevent her from discussing the relationship. She claims the agreement is null and void because Mr. Trump never signed it.

The president's comments on Thursday could create a predicament for him and his legal team. Ms. Clifford's case is based on the notion that the confidentiality agreement is invalid because Mr. Trump was not a party to it. By saying he was not aware of the agreement, Mr. Trump appeared to confirm that argument, which would mean neither party is legally bound by it, thus potentially paving the way for Ms. Clifford to break her silence without consequences.

Ms. Clifford's pugnacious lawyer, Michael J. Avenatti (https://twitter.com/MichaelAvenatti), quickly issued a statement to respond to Mr. Trump's claim. He said that the president's professed ignorance of the payment would improve his client's case, suggesting that he would use legal discovery to expose the back and forth around the payment.

“Our case just got that much better,” Mr. Avenatti said in the statement. “We very much look forward to testing the truthfulness of Mr. Trump's feigned lack of knowledge concerning the $130,000 as he stated on Air Force One.”

“As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath,” he added.

Later, Mr. Avenatti appeared to exult on Twitter about what he suggested were undisciplined comments by Mr. Trump that would give Ms. Clifford the upper hand in the legal dispute.

“Good (actually GREAT) things come to those who wait!!!” Mr. Avenatti wrote (https://twitter.com/MichaelAvenatti/status/982008464984760320). “The strength of our case just went up exponentially. You can't have an agreement when one party claims to know nothing about it. #nodiscipline (https://twitter.com/hashtag/nodiscipline).”

Mr. Cohen did not respond on Thursday to requests for comment. Charles Harder, a lawyer representing Mr. Trump in his legal wrangling with Ms. Clifford, also did not respond to requests for comment on the president's remarks and how they could affect his case.

Mr. Trump and a company affiliated with him filed papers (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/02/us/politics/stormy-daniels-trump-arbitration.html) in court on Monday seeking to force Ms. Clifford to raise her disputes through private arbitration, not lawsuits.

Arbitration would shield the case from public view, sparing Mr. Trump the public spectacle that would attend a lawsuit with a discovery process and a trial. Mr. Avenatti said at the time that he would vigorously oppose the effort to resolve the case privately. In fact, on Thursday night, he said that Mr. Trump's remarks had made him more determined than ever to try to depose the president.

“If the president didn't know anything about the payment, then he obviously didn't know anything about the agreement, in which case you can't have an agreement,” Mr. Avenatti said in an interview on MSNBC. “And then there is no such thing as an NDA,” he added, referring to a non-disclosure agreement.

“Now if, on the other hand, what he said on Air Force One is not accurate — and I, for one, have serious questions as to its veracity or accuracy — they've got a whole host of problems,” Mr. Avenatti said.

The president and his lawyers have been working to prevent Ms. Clifford, who sat for a lengthy interview that aired on “60 Minutes” last month (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/25/business/stormy-daniels-donald-trump.html), from making further public statements.

In February, she said that she believed that Mr. Cohen had violated the agreement (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/14/us/politics/stormy-daniels-michael-cohen-trump.html) and that she, as a result, was no longer bound by it. Mr. Cohen secretly obtained a restraining order (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/07/us/politics/stormy-daniels-trump.html) late that month to prevent her from speaking.

Then last month, Mr. Trump's legal team filed a motion (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/16/us/trumps-stormy-daniels-lawsuit.html) asking to move the case from state court to federal court, which may have been an effort to increase the likelihood that it would be resolved in arbitration.

Trump meets his match: Stormy Daniels' combative lawyer Michael Avenatti

By MICHAEL FINNEGAN and MAURA DOLAN | 4:00AM PDT — Saturday, April 07, 2018

MICHAEL AVENATTI, the newly famous lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels, has more than a few things in common with President Trump.

He's brash. He's media savvy. He enjoys the high life. He revels in antagonizing opponents.

In short, Trump may have met his match in this Newport Beach lawyer whose client, now America's best-known stripper, is suing the president to break free of a deal that bars her from discussing what she says was a one-night stand with Trump in 2006.

With a swagger worthy of the young Trump who barged his way into New York's tabloids decades ago, Avenatti has spent weeks shuttling among Manhattan TV studios to taunt the president and his fixer Michael Cohen.

His pugnacious edge makes Avenatti a natural on cable news.

“Wait a minute, I'm not done, I'm not done, I'm not done,” he snapped at Cohen spokesman David Schwartz on CNN.

His casual allusions to impeachment — “To address the rumor: We DO NOT have a ‘Monica Lewinsky type’ dress,” he announced on Twitter — underscore the lawsuit's high stakes for Trump.

More than anyone, Avenatti has shaped the scandal's narrative and kept it in the news. He has out-foxed the Trump forces over and over, most strikingly by getting Daniels on “60 Minutes”.

Avenatti — whose professional history, like Trump's, is messy — had already appeared twice himself on “60 Minutes”, both times playing the broadcast's stock part of dogged consumer lawyer nailing big companies for wrong-doing.

“Among trial lawyers, Avenatti is regarded as extraordinarily tenacious and aggressive,” said Brian Kabateck, the incoming president of the Los Angeles Bar Association.

“He may be the perfect foil for Trump,” he said, “because he understands Trump and is in Trump's head.”

Louise Sunshine, a former New York lobbyist who worked closely with Trump early in his career, agreed that Avenatti was a vexing adversary.

“I think he's sort of got Donald figured out,” she said.

BORN IN Sacramento, Avenatti, 47, grew up mainly in Chesterfield, Mo., a St. Louis suburb where he developed a love for sports cars and the Cardinals.

He studied political science at the University of Pennsylvania and earned a law degree as a night student at George Washington University, working on opposition research for both Democratic and Republican campaigns along the way.

In 2000, he moved to Los Angeles to practice law, spending three years at O'Melveny & Myers, then switching to a smaller firm.

He gravitated toward celebrity cases, working for the Eagles' Don Henley and Glenn Frey when fellow band member Don Felder sued them, claiming he was cheated out of album and concert earnings. Avenatti also handled lawsuits against heiress Paris Hilton and actor Jim Carrey.

In 2007, Avenatti and two partners started a Newport Beach plaintiffs' firm, Eagan, O'Malley & Avenatti.

He soon took on Service Corporation International, a cemetery company accused of desecrating graves in the San Fernando Valley. He won an $80-million settlement, along with his first star turn on “60 Minutes”, the CBS News flagship.

His biggest victory, now on appeal, was a $454-million jury verdict last year against surgical gown manufacturers Halyard Health and Kimberly-Clark. The gowns were supposed to protect doctors and nurses from blood-borne viruses such as Ebola and HIV, but sometimes leaked.

Avenatti was featured in the opening tease for a “60 Minutes” segment on the case. An executive at one of the gown makers, he said, “forgot the 11th commandment.”

“Which is?” Anderson Cooper asked.

“Do not lie to ‘60 Minutes’,” Avenatti replied, his close-up yielding to the ticking stopwatch.

“He's a dangerous lawyer,” said Brian Panish, an attorney who used to work with Avenatti, “because he is so sharp, quick and fearless.”

Avenatti can be difficult with allies.

After a few years of booming business, he told the partners in his firm that he was leaving unless they agreed to give him a bigger share of the profits, John C. O'Malley alleged in a 2011 lawsuit.

Dumbfounded by what he called “brazen tactics,” O'Malley protested, but Avenatti drove him out of the practice, he said in court documents. A judge confirmed an arbitration award of $2.7 million against Avenatti and the firm.

Avenatti, who declined to be interviewed and requested all questions in writing, said by email that the case was resolved to the satisfaction of all involved. “Anybody can say anything in a lawsuit,” he wrote.

With his reliance on contingency cases, Avenatti lives on a boom-or-bust pay cycle.

He and his wife sold their ocean-front bluff-top house in Laguna Beach for $12.6 million in 2015. Since then he has rented high-end homes in Newport Beach and Los Angeles.

In recently filed court papers in their divorce case, his wife detailed extravagant holidays in France, Italy, Spain, Mexico and Japan. Avenatti collects artwork and watches, travels by private jet and leases a Ferrari Spider, his wife claimed in the documents.

A part-time race-car driver, Avenatti has competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans circuit.

“Once you've driven 190 miles per hour in the pouring rain, in the middle of the night, down the Mulsanne Straight with prototype cars whizzing by you at 240-plus miles per hour … compared to that, what I'm doing right now is a warm-up lap,” he told Sports Illustrated after the Daniels case vaulted him to fame.

His Porsche race car and white uniform both advertise Tully's Coffee, the Seattle chain that he bought in 2013 for $9 million in a partnership with “Grey's Anatomy” star Patrick Dempsey, a fellow racer.

Avenatti's sideline as coffee entrepreneur turned into a morass of legal and financial trouble. Dempsey sued and withdrew from the deal, saying Avenatti had borrowed $2 million against Tully's assets without telling him. They resolved the dispute out of court.

Keurig Green Mountain, which owns the Tully's brand, claims the chain has missed royalty payments and has moved to revoke its license to use the name. Tully's denied wrongdoing in its court response.

Multiple landlords have sued for back rent or eviction of Tully's stores.

After a gradual shutdown of Tully's outlets, the remaining stores closed a month ago when they nearly ran out of coffee, according to the Seattle Times, but a company spokeswoman said it was simply launching a “rebranding process.”

David Nold, an attorney for one of the landlords, compared Avenatti to Trump. “They sure seem to have a very similar business style,” he said. “Unpaid bills. Taxes owed. Bombastic to a fault when it comes to the facts.”

Avenatti called Nold “an embarrassment to the legal profession.”

“Any claim that problems arose as a result of anything I did or did not do personally is ridiculous and baseless,” he wrote.

He said he divested his interest in Tully's long ago and now serves solely as outside counsel.

In bankruptcy and civil court papers, however, Avenatti claimed a substantial ownership stake in the coffee chain as recently as April 2017, and in July 2017 identified himself as chairman, general counsel and a board of managers member at Global Baristas US, the company that runs Tully's.

At both Tully's and the Eagan Avenatti law firm, unpaid taxes have been a problem for Avenatti.

The Internal Revenue Service put a $5-million lien on Global Baristas US last June, initially naming Avenatti as the person responsible for payment.

The company withheld payroll taxes from employees, but did not transmit the money to the IRS, the government said. The state of Washington has filed more than $800,000 in similar liens against the company.

When Eagan Avenatti emerged last month from an involuntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy triggered by an unpaid vendor, Avenatti personally agreed to pay the IRS $2.4 million in back taxes, penalties and interest, bankruptcy court records show.

Nearly $1.3 million of that was for payroll taxes that the firm withheld from employees, but failed to turn over to the government.

Avenatti, who was responsible for holding the money in trust for the IRS, has repaid $1.5 million so far, said Thom Mrozek, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Los Angeles.

Avenatti attributed the unpaid taxes at Eagan Avenatti and the coffee company to “payroll companies that failed to do their job.”

He called the Los Angeles Times' reporting inaccurate, but said he did not have the time or energy to address further questions about his dealings with the IRS and Tully's.

The IRS also has put a $904,000 lien on all of Avenatti's personal property, due to unpaid 2009 and 2010 income taxes, Orange County records show. Avenatti said it “was placed in error,” no taxes are due and the issue was resolved many months ago. The lien remains open, according to the Orange County clerk-recorder's office.

Avenatti said his taxes and personal life were irrelevant to his role in the Daniels case.

As he tries to resolve his financial troubles, his law practice is getting enormous publicity from the sex scandal. Savannah Guthrie, Wolf Blitzer and Megyn Kelly have each grilled him on television. To buttress his case, for the public if not for the court, he rations out scoops to TV networks.

Avenatti has been especially pointed in attacking Cohen, the long-time Trump personal attorney who set up the shell corporation that paid Daniels $130,000 in hush money just before the 2016 presidential election.

On CNN, he ridiculed Cohen for saying he paid off a woman who never had sex with Trump.

“I would encourage every American tomorrow morning to call … Mr. Cohen, claim you had an affair with the president. They will promptly send you a check for $130,000, no questions asked,” Avenatti said sarcastically.

On Twitter, he rips both Cohen and Schwartz (https://twitter.com/michaelavenatti/status/978959791706996736), Cohen's lawyer, punctuating tweets with his customary basta, Italian for enough.

“Where have the two legal geniuses of our time, Michael Cohen and David Schwartz, gone?” he tweeted on Thursday. “Forced to sit down by Mr. Trump after repeatedly making a disaster of their case on national television and being mocked by every real lawyer in America? #didtheygotolawschool (https://twitter.com/hashtag/didtheygotolawschool) #basta (https://twitter.com/hashtag/basta).”

Trump responds to Avenatti's provocations mostly with silence, leaving it to his spokesmen and lawyers to fight back.

Schwartz dismissed Avenatti's case as “completely wrong on the merits.”

“But,” Schwartz conceded, “he's an excellent performer.”

Stormy Daniels files defamation lawsuit against Trump

The porn star accuses the president of defaming her by dismissing as a “con job” her claim
that she was threatened in 2011 after giving an interview about their alleged affair.

By BETH REINHARD | 3:26PM EDT — Monday, April 30, 2018

PORN STAR Stormy Daniels on Monday filed another lawsuit against President Trump, accusing him of defaming her by dismissing as a “con job” her claim that she was threatened in 2011 after giving an interview about their alleged affair.

Daniels, who says she had a sexual relationship with Trump in 2006, said in a televised interview (https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/on-eve-of-60-minutes-interview-stormy-daniels-says-working-in-porn-helped-prepare-her-for-public-scrutiny/2018/03/24/b1555594-2ea6-11e8-8ad6-fbc50284fce8_story.html) in March that she was threatened after she gave In Touch magazine an interview about Trump. She said she was with her infant daughter when a man approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot, told her to “leave Trump alone” and said it would be “a shame if something happened” to her.

Daniels never reported the incident to police. But after she talked about the parking lot encounter in a widely watched “60 Minutes” interview, she released a sketch of the man two weeks ago.

Trump responded on Twitter (https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/986547093610299392): “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

Daniels's lawsuit, filed on Monday in the federal court in the Southern District of New York, said Trump's tweet is “false and defamatory.”

Charles Harder, an attorney representing Trump, did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Daniels first sued Trump (https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/porn-star-stormy-daniels-sues-president-trump/2018/03/06/1ad8e60a-21a7-11e8-a589-763893265565_story.html) in early March, seeking to void a deal she signed shortly before the 2016 election in which she received $130,000 in exchange for keeping quiet about their alleged relationship. That suit also named Essential Consultants, a company that Trump attorney Michael Cohen set up as a vehicle for the $130,000 payment. Daniels later amended that suit (https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/stormy-daniels-accuses-trump-attorney-of-defamation/2018/03/26/36da4122-30e4-11e8-94fa-32d48460b955_story.html) to add Cohen as a defendant and to accuse him of defamation.

Yet when his country needed him, unlike Robert S. Mueller and John McCain who both did their bit for their country, Trump showed he was a gutless, cowardly draft-dodger.

You may say Trump never admitted it, but unfortunately for both you and Trump, there is a tape recording of Trump boasting about grabbing women by the pussy.

But as Trump is a proven LIAR, it is no wonder he tries to deny something for which there is concrete evidence.

Only the totally stupid (ie....Trump-supporters) are gullible enough to believe Trump's lies.

Face facts, Trump is both a LIAR and a sexual sicko!!

Trump's revisionist history

President Donald Trump's former party buddy, Jeffrey Epstein, now faces decades in prison for sex crimes.

By DAVID HORSEY | 11:04AM PDT — Friday, July 12, 2019

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D_PGMI2VAAAd08f.jpg) (https://twitter.com/davidhorsey/status/1149480286234632192)

BACK IN 1992, George Houraney was an event organizer at casinos and other venues owned by President Donald Trump. It was nothing out of the ordinary when Trump asked him to put together a party at his Mar-a-Lago club that would feature 28 beautiful young women taking part in a calendar-girl competition. What surprised Houraney, according to his interview with The New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/09/us/politics/trump-epstein.html), was that, other than the women, only two people would be on the guest list: Trump and his buddy, Jeffrey Epstein.

In those days before he got into politics, Trump was an admirer of the multimillionaire hustler. “I've known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,” Trump told New York magazine (http://nymag.com/nymetro/news/people/n_7912/#print) in 2002. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

Now, Trump is president and Epstein is facing charges of sex trafficking that could put him in prison for the rest of his life. Epstein allegedly exploited dozens of underage females for his sexual gratification. Reportedly, Trump cut his ties to Epstein several years ago after Epstein tried to lure a female Mar-a-Lago employee into his sordid web.

Trump has seldom shown himself to be a good judge of character, but Epstein became too much of an obvious source of scandal, even for Trump. One wonders, though, just what went on at their two-boy, 28-girl private party back when Trump thought Epstein was a “terrific guy.”

Hahaha ... Donald J. Trump's sexual offender partner has committed suicide in his cell.

Who knows, one day when Trump is no longer the president and he has been locked up for taking part in those sex sessions with underage girls, he may also commit suicide?

Wouldn't that be a hoot, eh? Too gutless to face the music (Cadet “bone spurs” has a history of cowardice), so he takes the easy, coward's way out.

According to flight logs, former President Bill Clinton flew on the "Lolita Express" a total of 27 times. "Many of those times Clinton had his Secret Service with him and many times he did not," according to investigative journalist Conchita Sarnoff - who first revealed the former president's extensive flights on Epstein's "lolita express" in a 2010 Daily Beast exposé.

Clinton claimed in a July statement that he only took "a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein's airplane" in 2002 and 2003, and that Secret Service accompanied him at all times - which Sarnoff told Fox News was a total lie.

"I know from the pilot logs and these are pilot logs that you know were written by different pilots and at different times that Clinton went, he was a guest of Epstein's 27 times," said Sarnoff.

"It would not be surprising to find that some of these flight logs…were likely designed to hide evidence of criminal activity—or perhaps later cleansed of such evidence," wrote the lawyers for some of Epstein's accusers in a 2015 court filing.

Investigators may be interested in asking Mr. Epstein’s pilots whether they witnessed any efforts by Mr. Epstein to interfere with law enforcement, according to legal experts. In recent court filings, prosecutors have accused Mr. Epstein of tampering with witnesses, an allegation that Mr. Epstein’s lawyers denied in court.

Federal prosecutors in Miami and Mr. Epstein’s lawyers in 2007 negotiated over the possibility of Mr. Epstein pleading guilty to obstruction of justice, including for an incident involving one of his pilots, according to emails that became public in civil lawsuits. -Wall Street Journal

It's becoming patently obvious that Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew conspired to have Jeffrey Epstein murdered in jail to shut him up because he knew too much about their sexual sicko and paedophilia activities.

Face facts ... you support a paedophile and sexual sicko.

I guess you think paedophilia and sexual sicko practices are okay in Woodville, eh?

Do you conspire with your mate Milton to arrange sexual sicko parties?

I bet you do.

A little birdie tells me that Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump used to fuck little girls ... just for kicks and because they felt entitled.

Sick cunts, both of them.

One of them is dead ... the other one needs a bullet.

The only good paedophile is a dead paedophile.

Donald J. Trump is a known paedophile.

He used to team up with his paedophile mate Jeffrey Epstein for underage-teenager fucking parties.

There are plenty of photographs around of Donald J. Trump partying with his paedophile mate Jeffrey Epstein and with heaps of young chicks in the photographs with them.

Face facts ... your hero is an unconvicted paedophile. It is only a matter of time before some of those females taken advantage of by Trump and Epstein when they were young start laying complaints with cops. Hopefully, just after Trump is no longer President of the USA, meaning he can be arrested and locked up in the slammer for his paedophile activities many years ago. Like many paedophiles, Trump thinks he has got away with it, but the past has a habit of eventually catching up with sicko creeps like him.

Trump is going to end up in the slammer one day for his sexual predator activities against young girls.

It is only a matter of time.

Look at how Rolf Harris and Bill Cosby thought they had gotten away with it until it caught up with them and put them in jail.

And so it will be with the sicko & paedophile Trump one day.

The two paedophile mates of Jeffrey Epstein, Donald Trump and Prince Andrew are going to go down for their fucking-little-girls activities.

It is only a matter of time.

Plenty of sicko men thought they had got away with it in the past ... until they ended up being banged-up in jail for their sicko crimes.

The tide has turned on sicko sexual predators in recent years.
