Adult film actress Stormy Daniels (Stephanie Clifford) has filed suit against President Trump for "irresponsible and defamatory statements,” her attorney Michael Avenatti said Monday.
The details: The complaint alleges that Trump's tweets, that showed a sketch of a man she claimed had threatened her to keep quiet about her alleged affair with the president, mocked Daniels. She's seeking damages in excess of $75,000. The document claims the president knew his tweets would cause Daniels to be "subjected to threats of violence, economic harm, and reputational damage."
