Donald Trump alleged of having sex with adult star Stormy Daniels aka Stephanie Clifford.
US president swayed away from the lawsuit by Daniels and pleaded a federal judge to dissolve the same. Claims by the star seek $130,000 over a tryst that dates back to 2006.
Daniel Files Lawsuit Against Donald Trump
Donald Trump’s lawyer denies any such act and in the US court filing states that the lawsuit is questionable and Trump does not seek to stand by it. According to the lawyers there does not exist any controversy between the two.
On the other hand, Michael Avenatti, representative of Daniels state that they pledge a testimony from Trump and keeping the case alive is imperative. Also, Avenatti affirmed that step by Trump’s lawyer stating that the move was expected and they are not bothered.
Daniel alleges Trump of having sex with her at a golf tournament in 2006 adjacent to Lake Tahoe. But, Trump has rightly denied all allegations. The case has the first hearing on 3rd December.

The current case is different from the one claimed by Daniel as “con job” where she alleged an unknown man threatened her in a parking lot.
This case had his first hearing on 26th Sept, and the judge James Otero dismissed the case.
Daniel stated that she agreed on the hush with the Trump lawyer in 2016 before he was elected as the president.
On 21sr August, Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violation. He said that Trump told him just before the election to opt for hush money payments and settle claims with Daniels and a former Playboy model named Karen McDougal. She too accused Trump to have sexual connection with her.
Here too, Trump denies any affair with McDougal.
Avenatti however, has become a critic of Trump and stated that Trump might run for the White House in 2020.
The case is Clifford v Trump et al., U.S. District Court, Central District of California, No. 18-02217.
