Stormy Daniels Crowdfunds Legal Fight Against Donald Trump and Michael Cohen

Stormy Daniels Crowdfunds Legal Fight Against Donald Trump and Michael Cohen

"I am attempting to speak honestly and openly to the American people", Stormy Daniels said in a statement appended to the fundraiser.

"I think it's time for her to tell her story and for the public to decide who's telling the truth", Avenatti said last week.

Michael Avenatti may be pro boner, but he ain't pro bono!

Daniels has filed a civil suit in an attempt to have the non-disclosure agreement she signed rendered void because Trump never signed it. Cohen, though, did sign and has countered that the NDA is enforceable, filing arbitration to silence her from talking about Trump at all.

As of this writing, Stormy has already raised almost $13K for "attorneys' fees; out-of-pocket costs associated with the lawsuit, arbitration, and my right to speak openly; security expenses; and damages that may be awarded against me if I speak out and ultimately lose".

He now says Daniels put Trump's name on top of the list, CNN reported.

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far. Avenatti also made subtle reference to Daniels' 60 Minutes interview by posting a photo of Daniels sitting with Anderson Cooper under on a TV set.

Mr Cohen has admitted to paying Ms Daniels the $130,000, but maintains that Mr Trump had no idea that he transaction occurred. Most recently, she and her lawyers argued that since Trump never countersigned her nondisclosure agreement, she's actually free to tell her story.

When the news first broke, the adult film star signed a statement regarding the denial of "hush money", and sent it to Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen. Daniels has not said anything, per the NDA, though she played coy with Jimmy Kimmel leading the late-night host to believe the affair had happened.

More: Did the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels break the law? But now that Clifford is challenging the validity of the contract, legal experts say, she has little incentive to pay an arbitration award without a court fight.

"I am more fortunate than many, many people in this country", Daniels wrote.

The lawsuit also says that Cohen has continued a campaign of pressure and intimidation to keep Daniels quiet by starting new arbitration without notifying her. The agreement, facilitated by Cohen 12 days before the 2016 election, prohibits Daniels from speaking publically about a year-long affair she had with Trump in 2006.
