'60 Minutes': Anderson Cooper to Interview Stormy Daniels About Alleged Trump Affair

The 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels, the adult-film star and director who says she had an affair with Donald Trump, will be broadcast on Sunday, March 25 at 7 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

"I'm not 100 percent sure of why you're doing this", Cooper tells Daniels in a brief clip. The filing also states that Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, must pay at least $20 million for what Trump, Martin, and Cohen claim were repeated violations of the non-disclosure agreement regarding the affair.

The story of the alleged affair between Trump and Daniels spilled into public view when the Wall Street Journal reported in January about the payment from Trump's lawyer, which was made shortly before the 2016 election.

Daniels alleges the NDA is invalid because Donald Trump didn't sign it himself.

The interview, conducted by longtime host Anderson Cooper, actually occurred earlier this month, instigating loud calls for the network to televise the episode sooner.

Notably, Daniels is not, despite being the subject of one of the most anticipated interviews of the year, heard speaking in the spot, though she does appear on camera.

"I think this is about engaging in thuggish behavior, threats, intimidation, and hiding the money trail", he said.

Avenatti then hinted that Daniels' story could lead to serious consequences for the president - and he suggested that it could spur congresspeople into action. 60 Minutes is a show that does routinely generate strong ratings but this has the potential to air one of its most-watched episodes in years on Sunday - which is saying something because this show is often the beneficiary of big National Football League lead-ins during the season.

"We'll see what happens", the CNN anchor said.

Stephen Colbert has started stirring the pot with a segment called "Stormy Watch" on CBS' "The Late Show".
