Adult film star Stormy Daniels is offering to give back the $130,000 she was paid for her silence so she can speak freely about President Donald Trump and release any text messages, photos and videos she might have.
The Daily Beast reported Monday night that Daniels' friend Keith Munyan, who was one of the four people named in the actress' lawsuit against the president and his lawyer Michael Cohen, was privy to a number of calls between her and Trump. Avenatti set a deadline of Tuesday for Cohen to respond.
Cohen insisted he paid Daniels out of the goodness of his heart, using his own money, and Trump never knew anything about it nor reimbursed him. BuzzFeed News reports that Trump's personal lawyer is trying to keep the interview from airing via a legal challenge.
It would be highly unlikely Cohen would accept the offer - he recently went to court to get a restraining order to prevent her from talking about the NDA. Asked whether he had been contacted by Trump's team over the weekend, Avenatti said, "Not directly". An arbitrator found Ms Clifford had violated her nondisclosure agreement and barred her from filing her lawsuit, according to an attorney for Mr Cohen.
But Daniels's lawyer insists the relationship did take place, also explaining in an interview with NBC that his client had spoken out despite a non-disclosure agreement because the agreement was signed by Trump's lawyer rather than Trump himself.

Public Schools did not have a policy or guidance available on how it will handle the walkouts. "In four years, our oldest students will be allowed to vote".
Clifford also requested an assurance that neither President Trump nor EC LLC would move to block the broadcast of a "60 Minutes" interview she gave last week, and which Cohen has sought to block.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said last week that Trump has made it clear that none of the allegations are true.
Lata Nott, executive director of the Newseum Institute's First Amendment Center, said the president's lawyers would have to convince a court that "whatever is about to be aired would cause immediate, irreparable harm to the U.S. If the Pentagon Papers didn't meet that standard, can't imagine that this 60 Minutes segment with Stormy Daniels would".
Trump did not sign the agreement where it said 'David Dennison'.
She's hardly the first woman to come forward and accuse Trump of sexual misconduct or worse and, so far, he's been able to escape any consequences by calling them all liars.
