We may finally learn the truth about everything that has gone down between Stormy Daniels and President Donald Trump — far beyond just having sex. Michael Avenatti — who is working as a lawyer for the adult film star — is hoping to get the President to sit down in the next two to three months for a deposition regarding his extramarital affair with the porn star, which began in 2006 — just months after the First Lady, Melania Trump, gave birth to her son Barron.
In an interview with TMZ, Avenatti confirmed that his client’s sexual history with the President is interesting, but not more interesting than the other aspects he plans to ask about — which includes the $130,000 of “hush money” paid for by the President’s legal team and the threat made against Stormy after she gave her explosive tell-all with In Touch back in 2011.
Stormy — real name: Stephanie Clifford — appeared on 60 Minutes last night, and spoke about her affair for basically the first time since she sat down with In Touch in 2011 to divulge details about the affair with who was just the host of Celebrity Apprentice at the time. During her interview with Anderson Cooper, she revealed that he downplayed his marriage — which was less than two years old at the time.
“He goes, ‘Oh yeah, yeah, you know, don’t worry about that. We don’t even — we have separate rooms and stuff,’” Stormy told Anderson Cooper. She echoed the same sentiment from her 2011 interview, confessing that she didn’t want to sleep with him (though she confirmed that it was consensual).
“I realized exactly what I’d gotten myself in to. And I was like, ‘Ugh, here we go.’” she said. “I just felt like maybe — it was, sort of — I had it coming for making a bad decision for going to someone’s room alone and I just heard the voice in my head, ‘Well, you put yourself in a bad situation and bad things happen, so you deserve this.’”
In the past, Stormy had been barred from discussing her affair with the president, thanks to a non-disclosure agreement she signed just days before the 2016 election. However, since Trump failed to sign it under his pseudonym, Stormy and Avenatti are fighting to get it voided and lifted.
