Stormy Daniels Offers to Return Payment to End Deal for Her Silence
New York Times ^ | 03/12/2018 | By JIM RUTENBERG

Posted on 03/12/2018 11:25:15 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

The pornographic film actress who says she had an affair with President Trump offered on Monday to return $130,000 she received from Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer in 2016 for agreeing not to discuss the alleged relationship.

In exchange, the actress, Stephanie Clifford, seeks an end to her deal to keep quiet about what she says was an affair with Mr. Trump that started in 2006 and lasted for several months.

In the letter, which was sent to Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, early Monday, Ms. Clifford’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, wrote that Ms. Clifford would wire the money into an account of Mr. Trump’s choosing by Friday.

Mr. Avenatti set a deadline of noon Tuesday for Mr. Cohen to answer the offer from Ms. Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels.

Under the terms of the deal detailed in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, the contract ensuring Ms. Clifford’s silence would be “deemed null and void’’ once she returned the sum called for in her original contract.

Under Mr. Avenatti’s offer, Ms. Clifford would then be allowed to “(a) speak openly and freely about her prior relationship with the President and the attempts to silence her and (b) use and publish any text messages, photos and/or videos relating to the President that she may have in her possession, all without fear of retribution and/or legal liability for damages.”

The letter also seeks an agreement that neither Mr. Trump nor the shell company that Mr. Cohen used to pay Ms. Clifford, which he represents as a party to their October 2016 deal, would move to block the broadcast of an interview that Ms. Clifford taped with “60 Minutes” last week.

Her lawyer should remind her what a contract is.

Like a good *ahem* business person, Stormy Daniels now realizes that there is more money to be leveraged by selling her... um, story, than a mere $130,000.

She can afford to give it back considering she is probably receiving at least ten times that to go after Trump

You made the agreement and don’t keep it, well that says a lot more about you than the man you’re suing.

Suck it up, Stormy. It ain’t about you.

***WARNING***

NYT (Not Yielding to Truth) – 2nd Place in Trump's 2017 First Annual Fake News Winners AKA Second Biggest Liars of the Lying Leftist Media with TWO entries in the top ten

Don’t believe these Lying Leftist Media outlets that proved themselves during the 2016 campaign to be operatives of the DNC and intentional liars. They are presumed to be lying and we should presume what they publish is a lie. The presumption can only be rebutted with the outlet providing clear and convincing evidence they are not lying.

Why not post the TRUTH about the lies? You don't have to use the liar as the source to post a headline that alerts readers to a published lie. Use yourself as the source or a reasonably reliable source that addresses what the Lying Leftist source is saying. That way you have a headline and a source that your readers can reasonably rely on and they go away more informed about the lie AND the truth.

If this story is true and has some redeeming value, at least get the story from a reasonably reliable source, not from a known Lying Leftist operative posing as a “news” organization. You’ve done the Patriotic Right a service. Much better than the mindless repetition of lying sources and their lying headlines.

She’s obviously being financed by the Democrat party.

So someone has outbid the $130,000 in hush money. Maybe we can find out who that someone is.

But still, it would be nice to have a president who didn't need to pay hush money to porn stars.

Someone must have told her they would pay more than $130k for her story.

It’s a story I could care less about.

Since when do burned out porn stars write out #15000 checks on a whim?

She probably would have trouble raising the money to pay an overtime parking ticket.

So the real story is....Who is bankrolling her?

Seems very unlikely the contact gives her an open ended right to return the money at any time and be let out of the contact.

Could it be any more obvious the DNC is paying her lawyers?

She’ll end up keeping the money and leaking the dirt, we all know how this will end. The only thing absent so far is Gloria Allred.

Trump will make fun of the whole thing and eventually CNN will be back to muh Russia or something else.

She now believes the dollars she got are chicken feed to the ones she may make.

Connivers and liars are usually seen for what they are.
