Donald Trump’s chickens are coming home to roost. Porn actress Stephanie Clifford, who uses the stage name “Stormy Daniels’” is suing the Cad-in-Chief claiming Trump never did sign their “hush agreement” and it is therefore invalid, presumably leaving her free to talk. From NBC News:

The “hush agreement,” as it’s called in the suit, refers to Trump throughout as David Dennison, and Clifford as Peggy Peterson. The side letter agreement reveals the true identities of the parties as Clifford and Trump.

Each document includes a blank where “DD” is supposed to sign, but neither blank is signed.

According to the lawsuit, which attorney Michael Avenatti announced in a tweet, Clifford and Trump had an intimate relationship that lasted from summer 2006 “well into the year 2007.” The relationship allegedly included meetings in Lake Tahoe and at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Clifford’s attorney says Trump’s attorney has been trying to keep her quiet.


One important bit of information from the lawsuit. It alludes to texts and/or photos. Oh, Lordy. It also mentions other “sexual partners.”

The 2016 hush agreement directed that $130,000 be paid into the trust account of Clifford’s then-attorney. In return, Clifford was not to disclose any confidential information about Trump or his sexual partners to anyone beyond a short list of individuals she’d already told about the relationship, or share any texts or photos from Trump.

The suit alleges that Cohen has tried to keep Clifford from talking about the relationship as recently as Feb. 27, 2018.

“To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms. Clifford into silence and ‘shut her up’ in order to ‘protect Mr. Trump’ continue unabated,” says the suit. “On or about February 27, 2018, Mr. Trump’s attorney Mr. Cohen surreptitiously initiated a bogus arbitration proceeding against Ms. Clifford in Los Angeles.” Binding arbitration is specified as a means of dispute resolution.

This is about to get a lot more complicated for Donald Trump. If Clifford hits the talk show circuit and details their extramarital affair, will Melania be the next one to leave the White House?
