Porn Star Stormy Daniels Files New Defamation Suit Against President Donald Trump

Stormy Daniels has filed another lawsuit against Donald Trump. The president writes "total con job" and says this man does not exist.

Daniels' new lawsuit is not to be confused with the one she previously filed against Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Neither Trump campaign representatives nor Ryan responded to requests for comment by the network's reporters.

And now, she's diving further down the legal rabbit hole over a tweet by the USA president saying that she was she was playing a "con job" on the media.

Daniels says she took the money in exchange for signing a nondisclosure agreement that bars her from speaking about having sex with Trump in 2006.

The suit, which seeks unspecified damages exceeding $75,000, adds another layer to a multifaceted legal dispute.

The Trump campaign may have violated campaign finance laws by spending almost $228,000 in campaign funds to cover the legal expenses for President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen, ABC News reported.

"Mr. Trump knew that his false, disparaging statement would be read by people around the world, as well as widely reported, and that Ms. Clifford would be subjected to threats of violence, economic harm, and reputational damage as a result", the complaint reads.

Clifford argues that Mr. Trump's statement paints her as a liar and that it has exposed her "to hatred, contempt, ridicule, and shame, and discouraged other from associating or dealing with her".

Trump has more than 50 million Twitter followers.

Daniels first told CNN in March about the alleged 2011 threat, which came soon after Daniels attempted to sell her story about the affair to InTouch magazine.

The Los Angeles case also includes Daniels' claim that Cohen defamed her in a February 13 statement by implying she had lied about her relationship with Trump.

A Trump campaign official confirmed to the Daily News that the payments covered some of Cohen's legal bills.

The 39-year-old was accosted in a Las Vegas parking lot - her infant daughter in tow - by the man who told her, "Leave Trump alone".

The FBI raided his home and office in early April and seized documents and other material in connection with a criminal investigation.

The judge cited the reasonably high likelihood that letting the case continue might threaten Cohen's constitutional right against self-incrimination.

The new suit, filed Monday in the Southern District of NY, claims an April tweet from Trump is "false and defamatory". Zervos has accused Trump of unwanted sexual contact in 2007 and sued him after he dismissed the claims as made up.
