Stormy Daniels asking for new judge in lawsuit against Trump

Stormy Daniels asking for new judge in lawsuit against Trump

The head of CBS News said Tuesday that a 60 Minutes interview with adult film star Stormy Daniels is on its way but that more journalistic work needs to be done on the story. Cohen did not explain why he made the payment or say whether Trump was aware of it.

She was supposed to perform and sign autographs at Truth Gentleman's Club on 8 Mile Road near Mound Road.

"The president has addressed these directly and made very well clear that none of these allegations are true", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a White House briefing on March 6.

A lawyer for Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, reportedly put in the request on Friday, claiming that because Judge Elizabeth Feffer of Los Angeles Superior Court is now seeking a federal appointment, it would not be appropriate for her to make a judgment in a case involving the president.

The possibility of Daniels owning any pre-existing images/videos of Trump engaged in any lewd acts would definitely be a presidential first; however, he hasn't exactly fit the diplomatic politician mould throughout his short tenure in office. In exchange, the settlement agreement between Clifford, Trump and Cohen's company would be "deemed null and void in their entirety".

Stormy's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, has appeared in several interviews - like the above MSNBC interview - wherein the attorney vowed to keep fighting along with Daniels to allow her to speak freely and tell her version of events about her alleged adulterous affair with Trump in 2006 and 2007. Reportedly, the two were involved in a secretive tryst, but Trump did not want news of his sexual exploits to eclipse his chances at becoming the nation's next Commander in Chief.

He contended Daniels always meant to remain silent, until Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, began giving interviews and bringing the matter to public light. Avenatti told CNN over the weekend that at least 10 people had offered to pay the penalty if she would discuss the alleged affair.
