Stormy Daniels was threatened with 'physical harm' in relation to her claims that she had an affair with Trump, lawyer says
Adult film star Stormy Daniels was allegedly threatened with "physical harm" in relation to her claims that she had an affair with President Trump in 2006, her lawyer told the hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe on Friday.
"Was she threatened in any way?" co-host Mika Brzezinski asked lawyer Michael Avenatti, who confirmed "yes." Brzezinski followed up by asking, "Was she threatened physical harm?" Avenatti again confirmed "yes," although he stopped short at elaborating if it was by the president himself, or what exactly the threats were, and pushed for Americans to tune into Daniels' 60 Minutes interview on March 25 for details.
Daniels signed a nondisclosure agreement with Trump's attorney in October 2016, receiving $130,000. Trump has denied that the affair occurred. His attorney, Michael Cohen, has said he helped "facilitate" the payment to Daniels. Jeva Lange
