In a delightfully steamy twist to the porn star story, Stormy Daniels flipped the script and filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump that alleges he never signed the infamous non-disclosure agreement.
NEVER BOTHERED TO SIGN THE AGREEMENT
In Los Angeles Superior Court, Stormy Daniels filed a civil suit that claims that the agreement she signed promising not to disclose her “intimate” relationship with Trump is invalid because Trump never bothered to sign the thing himself.
Both Daniels and Trump’s lawyer Micheal Cohen signed the agreement, but Trump just never got around to it, apparently.
Daniels aka Stephanie Clifford signed two documents. One was the agreement itself and the other was a side letter agreement. She signed both agreements using her professional name on October 28, 2016, just a few days before Trump was to win the presidency thanks to evangelical Christians voting for him in droves.
NBC News obtained copies of the complaint and both of the agreements which can be viewed here.
The “hush agreement” as it is referenced in the suit, uses the name David Dennison as Trump throughout the document, and it refers to Clifford as Peggy Peterson. Note that on the side letter agreement the area next to DD’s true identity is blacked out. Clifford’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, identifies that individual as Trump.
On each document, next to the designation “DD” where Trump was supposed to sign, it is simply blank.
The hush agreement stated that $130,000 was to be paid into a trust account of Clifford’s attorney at the time. In return, Clifford agreed not to disclose any information about her illicit affair with Trump that lasted from Summer 2006 until “well into the year 2007,” according to the lawsuit.
The suit also alleges that there have been recent attempts by Cohen to intimidate Clifford from talking about the affair. As recent as February 27, 2018, as a matter of fact.
“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.
Clifford and her lawyer are asking the court to declare that both the hush agreement as well as the side agreement,
“were never formed, and therefore do not exist, because, among other things, Mr. Trump never signed the agreements.”
The suit also states:
“In the alternative, Plaintiff seeks an order of this Court declaring that the agreements in the forms set out in Exhibits 1 and 2 are invalid, unenforceable, and/or void under the doctrine of unconscionability.”
The White House has not responded to a request for comment regarding this issue. Trump’s outside attorney, John Dowd, also declined to comment on the situation.
