Trump lawyer claims up to $20m in damages

Trump lawyer claims up to $20m in damages

One, in the name of the shell company, Essential Consultants, sought to move the suit to federal court from Los Angeles Superior Court, where Ms. Clifford filed the suit.

"Mr. Trump intends to join in EC's anticipated Petition to Compel Arbitration under the Arbitration Agreement", he announced.

Lawyers for Trump claim Daniels - whose real name is Stephanie Clifford - could owe more than £14m in damages for violating the agreement.

Clifford has alleged she had affair with Trump that began in 2006 and lasted several months. The American people are witness to their President trying to force a private citizen to go for a closed door settlement when she wants to tell the world the truth. "We are not going away and we will not be intimidated by these threats".

Michael Avenatti said the filing by the law firm representing the president were "unprecedented" and "yet another bullying tactic" against her.

Avenatti said he was confident that people would believe her after watching her interview.

According to U.S. News & World Report, six other women have been in touch with Avenatti, with two of the women showing him signed nondisclosure agreements. He said, however, that he had not vetted their claims.

Daniels received a $130,000 payout from Cohen just before the 2016 election to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump, which is said to have happened when the now-president was married to his third wife Melania in 2006. But her case came back into public view in October 2016, as she became concerned that the $130,000 she was promised would not come through.

The legal team allege that Ms Clifford has broken the confidentiality agreement at least 20 times. The payment may have violated federal election law.

Daniels wrote to the page she needs funds for "attorneys" fees; out-of-pocket costs associated with the lawsuit, arbitration, and my right to speak openly; security expenses; and damages that may be awarded against me if I speak out and ultimately lose to Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen'. But unfortunately, I do not have the vast resources to fight Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen alone.

In the lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles, Mr Avenatti claims Mr Trump never signed the non-disclosure agreement that his lawyer made with Ms Clifford, claiming that would make it null and void, and making public the agreement and related documents. The new motion makes clear that Mr. Trump now fully considers himself a party to it.
