Pornstar Stormy Daniels’ lawyer dropped the mic on White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders after she told reporters that Donald Trump has already addressed allegations of a sexual affair with Daniels and “made very well clear that none of these allegations are true.”
“This case has already been won in arbitration, and anything beyond that I would refer you to the president’s outside counsel,” Sanders added. And that’s kind of weird because Sanders just accidentally admitted to a deal between Daniels and Trump just after claiming it’s not true. If Trump is not a party to arbitration then he can’t possibly have won in arbitration with the pornstar who was (allegedly) his fuck buddy from the summer 2006 “well into the year 2007,” according to the suit.
Daniels’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, responded to Sanders’ claim to a reporter from The New York Times.
Stormy Daniels lawyer, @MichaelAvenatti responds to me re Sanders’ statement Trump won at arbitration: “yeah and he also won the popular vote.”

And then there’s this:

When asked when Trump has personally addressed the $130,000 paid to Daniels by Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, Sanders said she wasn’t aware that Trump knew about the payment and said Trump has “denied the allegations against him,” according to The Hill.
Daniels filed a lawsuit against Trump, claiming that because he failed to sign the nondisclosure agreement, it is invalid.
Both Daniels and Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen signed the NDA, but Trump never did. Each document includes a blank where “DD” was supposed to sign, but neither blank is signed by President Crazy Pants.
Cohen has admitted to paying Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, $130,000 to keep her quiet about the alleged affair which began just months after Melania Trump gave birth to their son.
Avenatti said on Wednesday that Daniels had a sexual relationship with Trump and she is free to talk about the encounter because Trump didn’t sign the NDA.
But if you ask Trump if he won the popular vote, he’ll somehow say he did.
