  • Trump Lawyer's Payment to Porn Star Was Reported as Suspicious by Bank

Guthrie pressed the attorney on the statement Clifford issued in denial of a sexual affair and hush money, but Avenatti claimed it was "demanded" she sign it. "Mr. Cohen demanded she sign that statement, and as alleged in the complaint, we believe it was done through force and intimidation", he responded.

"Clifford likewise sought to share details concerning her relationship and encounters with Mr. Trump with various media outlets".

In the suit, Daniels says only she and Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, signed the agreement, and therefore it is not valid.

News of Daniels' plan to sue over the NDA broke Tuesday night, with lawyers for the actress alleging that the $130,000 agreement was invalid because Trump never signed it.

"Mr. Trump purposely did not sign the agreement so he could later, if need be, publicly disavow any knowledge of the Hush Agreement and Ms. Clifford", the lawsuit alleges. "On or about February 27, 2018, Mr. Trump's attorney Mr. Cohen surreptitiously initiated a bogus arbitration proceeding against Ms. Clifford in Los Angeles".

But if he does that, Smerconish said, it would be an admission "that this did all transpire, and that they made a deal and she needs to keep her mouth shut".

"It's time for her to tell her story", Avenatti said, adding that "there's no question the president knew about" the non-disclosure agreement at the time.
