Porn ac­tress of­fers to re­pay $130K so she can dis­cuss Trump

Ripon Bulletin - - Local / State -

LOS AN­GE­LES (AP) — An adult film ac­tress who said she had sex with President Don­ald Trump of­fered Mon­day to re­turn the $130,000 she was paid for agree­ing not to dis­cuss the al­leged re­la­tion­ship.

Stormy Daniels — whose real name is Stephanie Clif­ford — is will­ing to re­pay the money she re­ceived as part of a 2016 agree­ment, as long as she can speak openly about the sit­u­a­tion, ac­cord­ing to a copy of a let­ter from Clif­ford’s at­tor­ney ob­tained by The As­so­ci­ated Press.

The let­ter sent to Trump’s at­tor­ney, Michael Co­hen and his at­tor­ney, Lawrence Rosen, said the non-dis­clo­sure agree­ment would be con­sid­ered “null and void” af­ter she re­turned the money, and that would al­low Clif­ford to speak about the re­la­tion­ship and the at­tempt to si­lence her while she pub­lishes any text mes­sages, pho­tos and videos she may have.

“Mr. Co­hen and the president should ac­cept this pro­posal and al­low Ms. Clif­ford to tell her side,” her at­tor­ney Michael Ave­natti said. “The Amer­i­can peo­ple can then de­cide who was telling the truth.”

The of­fer is valid un­til Tues­day af­ter­noon, the let­ter said.

Co­hen and Rosen did not im­me­di­ately re­spond Mon­day to re­quests for com­ment.

Clif­ford filed a law­suit in Los An­ge­les last week that sought to in­val­i­date the agree­ment so she could “set the record straight.”

The law­suit claimed the “hush agree­ment” that was signed days be­fore the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion is legally in­valid be­cause it was only signed by Clif­ford and Co­hen and not by Trump. It refers to Trump as David Den­ni­son and Clif­ford as Peggy Pe­ter­son, but an at­tached ex­hibit de­tails their true iden­ti­ties.

The Dal­las Morn­ing News re­ported Mon­day that Texas of­fi­cials are in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether a no­tary prop­erly wit­nessed the non-dis­clo­sure agree­ment. The of­fi­cials sent a let­ter to no­tary Erica Jack­son no­ti­fy­ing her that there was “good cause” to take ac­tion against her no­tary com­mis­sion.
