legations were made on MSNBCs Morning Joe programme when attorney Michael Avenatti said Ms Daniels was physically threatened to stay silent. He also claimed six more women have contacted him with strikingly similar claims about Trump but admitted those stories have not been vetted. Ms Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was previously paid $130,000 (94,000) to sign a gagging order before the Trump campaign. Mr Avenatti said that Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen had tried to muzzle his client who was very, very credible. Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzenski pressed the lawyer on the odd figure for the non-disclosure agreement which bought her silence.

Mr Avenatti said he is now adamant that they are going to fight it and reveal the truth to the American people so that they can decide who is circulating fake news. He tweeted that it was time to buckle up and told the hosts on Morning Joe that they would launch a measured, aggressive, smart legal battle and they intended to win. Were not going home.

roadcast Ms Daniels claims that both Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen have tried to intimidate her into silence but she is adamant that she will not comply with their tactics and threats. But as one Twitter user said, she has not named herself Stormy for nothing. The adult film actress has launched a crowd funding campaign to raise enough money to fight Trump and to tell her truth about their alleged relationship before he became president. The campaign has raised $148,507 so far - exceeding the amount initially paid for the NDA. She said the money was needed to pay for the legal battle so that she could tell the American people the truth. Ms Daniels said she had been threatened with millions of dollars in damages ($1M each time she speaks out) if she tells the truth about what happened, she wrote on her crowdfunding page. I am attempting to speak honestly and openly to the American people about my relationship with now President Donald Trump and the intimidation and tactics used against me. I recently made an offer to return the $130,000 I was previously paid if it was agreed that I could simply tell the truth publicly. Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen did not even bother to respond, she wrote.
