Stormy Daniels offers to return 'hush agreement' money to end silence

Stormy Daniels offers to return 'hush agreement' money to end silence

Stephanie Clifford, a pornographic actress known professionally as "Stormy Daniels", offered Monday to return the $130,000 payment she received in October 2016 for her continued silence about an alleged affair with President Donald Trump.

Porn star Stormy Daniels is offering to return the $130,000 she received in hush money so she can detail her alleged affair with President Donald Trump.

Avenatti said Cohen has until noon on Tuesday to respond to the offer, which, if accepted, would deem Clifford's silence as "null and void" once she returned the cash.

She already has conducted an interview with contributor Anderson Cooper, although it is not known when the show will air.

Although Cohen said the money came out of his own pocket, there was "no question" Trump knew about the arrangement, Avenatti said last week during an appearance on NBC News "Today".

"She wants the people to decide who is shooting straight with them and who is being less than forthcoming". Cohen reportedly paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about the affair ahead of the 2016 presidential election. The White House did not respond to a request for comment Monday.

Clifford, whose credits include "The 40 Year Old Virgin" and "Operation: Desert Stormy", sued Trump last week, arguing that the nondisclosure agreement she signed is invalid because Trump never signed the document himself.

Neither Mr Trump or the White House has admitted the president was involved in any way with Ms Clifford.

That payment, first reported by the Wall Street Journal in January, has raised the specter of a misuse of campaign funds by Trump's team.

The letter also asks for Trump to not attempt to block the release of a taped "60 Minutes" interview.

In January, the tabloid weekly InTouch published a 2011 interview with Daniels in which she described having sex with Trump, but her description in that interview was unremarkable, saying, "It was textbook generic". But her spokeswoman said last month that Daniels planned to "tell her story", prompting Trump's lawyers to obtain a temporary restraining order from a private arbitrator.
