Trump lawyer ignores porn star's offer to return hush…

Earlier this year, In Touch published a 5,000-word interview with porn star Stormy Daniels, detailing the affair she had with Donald in 2006, and now that Stormy is gearing up to tell all during her upcoming 60 Minutes interview, sources say Melania is preparing for the worst.

Trump lawyer Michael Cohen made the explosive claim in papers filed in a federal California court Friday.

The second motion, filed on Trump's behalf, states that he joins Essential Consultants in seeking the change of venue and ends with the statement, "Mr. Trump intends to pursue his rights to the fullest extent permitted by the law". Trump may be hoping that his chances of keeping the dispute in arbitration and out of public view are better before a federal judge than a state one.

Until now, Mr. Trump had stayed out of the legal dispute, leaving it to Mr Cohen to publicly deny Ms Clifford's claims. And the White House has refused to say how involved Trump had even been in the initial agreement with Clifford, signed in October 2016.

After Trump's legal team filed its motions on Friday, Avenatti argued in a series of tweets that the president is attempting to hide "the truth from the public".

Cohen had already secretly obtained a temporary restraining order against Clifford from a private arbitrator.

The moves by the Trump legal team came just a day after it was reported that CBS's "60 Minutes" interview with Clifford and her attorney will air March 25.

Avenatti took to Twitter on Friday to criticize the court filing."The fact that a sitting president is pursuing over $20M in bogus "damages" against a private citizen, who is only trying to tell the public what really happened, is remarkable. We are NOT going away and we will NOT be intimidated".

In a statement late Wednesday, the Trump Organization said Martin worked on the filing in her "individual capacity" and the company "has had no involvement in the matter". Cohen has claimed he paid Daniels $130,000 with his own personal money. Now, they're seeking $1 million per alleged breach, acumulating to $20 million.

Ms. Clifford signed the agreement pertaining to an alleged affair a decade earlier shortly before the 2016 election, leading to allegations that the payment amounted to an illicit contribution to the campaign.

One of the reasons she cited is that Trump, who went by the alias David Dennison in the nondisclosure pact, did not sign it. Avenatti noted how jaw-dropping it is that Cohen has a client - the president of the United States - who is using an alias to mask his identity in a case involving an X-rated actress.
