Donald Trump has his lawyers working overtime to stop what appears to be one of the biggest threats he has ever faced — his porn star former mistress running her mouth about their affair.
If you haven’t heard, Stormy Daniels — real name Stephanie Clifford — taped an interview with “60 Minutes” regarding her affair with The Donald, which occurred just after Melania gave birth and resulted in a $130,000 hush money payment to the adult actress.
The interview is set to air on March 18 but according to reports, Trump’s lawyer intends to stop that from happening.
“We understand from well-placed sources they are preparing to file for a legal injunction to prevent it from airing,” a source told BuzzFeed on Saturday.
Trump says he was unaware of the $130,000 payment his personal lawyer made on his behalf from his personal account, which he arranged using his Trump organization email. Cohen complained to friends that The Donald didn’t reimburse him for the payoff.
Trump has recently been in a frenzy because he forgot to sign the non-disclosure agreement with Clifford, which forbids her revealing “paternity information” and “alleged children” to the public.
Trump has even more reason to worry, as many prenuptial agreements contain an “infidelity clause,” which can mean a massive payout for Melania if it can be proven that Trump cheated.
It’s unclear why Trump is so worried about Stormy Daniels speaking out when he has not been concerned about many other horrible things he has done making it to the public, but perhaps we will find out soon when the interview airs.
