Stormy Daniels Sues Ex-Lawyer She Says Was ‘Puppet’ for Trump, Cohen

"The only reason I answered it was to, I think, say what the vast majority of Americans would say to somebody engaged in the kind of behavior she's been engaged in - which is looking for money".

In addition to commenting on Melania's supposed feelings about the alleged affair, Giuliani also mentioned Melania's thoughts ahead of the 2016 presidential election and what she thought about his chances of winning. The president has denied it.

A church group protested outside of the club over the weekend and is said to be back while Daniels is in the city.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, filed a lawsuit in March against Trump and his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to break a nondisclosure agreement she signed in October 2016 barring her from talking about an alleged affair with Trump a decade prior.

This week, Daniels filed another lawsuit alleging that her former lawyer Keith Davidson and Cohen worked together "in an attempt to use and manipulate Ms. Clifford in a manner created to benefit Mr. Cohen and Mr. Trump".

She described Mr Davidson as a "puppet" of Mr Cohen, and accused him of not fairly representing her interests.

"Davidson never consented to the recordation of any phone calls he had with Cohen as he believe the calls were confidential", the claim said, citing California law making it illegal to record a call without the consent of each party on the call.

In the lawsuit, Daniels includes an exhibit that consists of a series of alleged text messages between Cohen and Davidson.


"In other words, Mr. Davidson abdicated his role as an advocate and fiduciary of his client".

But, that's not all Rudy had to say at the conference.

"I'm not going to disagree with him on that", Trump said Friday.

The cryptic statement was not a complete denial of the statement Giuliani made, but it was a rebuke to his claim to know anything about what the first lady believed.

Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti replied by calling Giuliani a "misogynist" on Twitter.

Her lawsuit cites a series of January 2018 text exchanges between Cohen and Davidson in which they work to arrange a TV appearance for Daniels after the Wall Street Journal revealed the once-secret hush agreement.

"He is an embarrassment to the profession and seems to have forgotten what the attorney-client privilege is all about", Avenatti said. She alleges that she had a sexual encounter with Trump at a celebrity golf tournament in 2006.
