Stormy Daniels's Lawyer Says Trump Missed Settlement Offer Deadline

The New York Times reported last week that the president's lawyer had secretly obtained a temporary restraining order to prevent Clifford from speaking out about her alleged affair with Trump.

A lawyer for US President Donald Trump ignored a suggested Tuesday noon (March 13) deadline on an adult-film star's offer to return US$130,000 (S$170,000) in hush money so that she can speak freely about an alleged affair with Trump, her attorney said.

Last week, Daniels filed a civil suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court to have a nondisclosure agreement she reached with President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen in October ruled invalid because it was signed only by Daniels and Cohen, not by the president himself.

An adult film actress who said she had sex with President Donald Trump has offered to return the $130,000 she was paid for agreeing not to discuss their alleged relationship.

"As we have always said, this is about a search for the truth and the ability of Ms. Clifford to tell the American people what really happened so they can make their own determination", Avenatti said of the offer.

Once a new agreement is signed, the letter said, Clifford would also be able to use and publish any text messages, photos and videos relating to Trump that she might possess. He said Daniels' only motivation now is to explain her side of the story.

The White House has denied Trump had an affair with Daniels.

Daniels has been interviewed by CBS' "60 minutes", which has not set a date for the segment to run. Neither immediately responded to comment requests.

The offer from Avenatti came after White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a briefing last week that Trump had won an arbitration proceeding against Clifford.

Clifford could be subjected to a $1 million penalty if she broke the nondisclosure agreement she signed. Daniels - real name Stephanie Clifford - is suing to get out of the agreement.
