Stormy Daniels releases composite sketch of man who allegedly threatened her in 2011

Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who says she had an affair with President Trump in 2006, has revealed a sketch of the person she says threatened her to keep quiet about her allegations.

In a Tuesday appearance on The View, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, discussed details about the threat that she says happened in 2011. "His face is burned in my memory," said Daniels, who described feeling "really rattled" after a man approached her and warned her not to speak about her affair with Trump. The man allegedly invoked her young daughter and said, "It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom."

Daniels first disclosed the threat in a 60 Minutes appearance in March. Michael Avenatti, Daniels' attorney, told The View that there is a $100,000 reward for any information that identifies the man in the sketch. Daniels said that she didn't publicly mention the threat earlier because she was frightened, and because she hadn't yet told her husband about her alleged affair with Trump.

The president's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has acknowledged that he paid Daniels $130,000 in 2016 as a part of a hush agreement to keep her from talking about her allegations. Trump denies that the affair occurred and has told reporters that he had no idea about the payment.

Avenatti encouraged viewers to send tips about the man in the sketch to IDtheThug@gmail.com. Yes, seriously.
