Adult film star Stormy Daniels offered to drop her pending lawsuit against President Donald Trump and return money she received as part of a 2016 hush agreement with the then-presidential candidate meant to keep her from sharing details about their alleged affair.
In addition, Avenatti wants Trump and the shell company that Cohen used to pay Clifford to not make any attempt to block the airing of a "60 Minutes" interview that she taped last week.
Cohen has not responded yet to Daniels' offer.
The porn actress, however, feels that she doesn't have to abide by the agreement because Cohen forgot to get Trump to sign it. Cohen's signature is on it and Daniels' is, but Trump's isn't.
Trump, whose wife Melania gave birth to their son Barron several months before his alleged relationship with Daniels began, has denied the affair, according to the White House.
The Dallas Morning News reported Monday that Texas officials are investigating whether a notary properly witnessed the non-disclosure agreement.
Clifford could be subjected to a $1 million penalty if she broke the nondisclosure agreement she signed. Daniels and Avenatti have kept up the public pressure on Cohen and Trump, even offering to return the $130,000 payment as a show of good faith. "The president has denied the allegations against him", Sanders said.
We could be weeks away from the first porn-star dick-pic presidential scandal in American history. She did so despite an arbitrator's ruling reaffirming an agreement she reached with Trump in October 2016 to remain silent about their alleged relationship - which she said started in 2006 and lasted several months - in exchange for $130,000.
Last week Daniels sat for an interview with 60 Minutes, which is set to air at a future date.
This comes as the watchdog group Common Cause filed revised complaints with the Federal Election Commission and Department of Justice naming Trump personally as well as Michael Cohen.
