Stormy Daniels, the adult movie star who claimed to have her had an affair with Donald Trump before he took office, defended her credibility on Tuesday and published a sketch of a man who years ago threatened to keep her from Trump.
Daniel's story about a mysterious man who confronted her at a parking lot in Las Vegas in 2011 led to a quick pushback from representatives for President Trump and Michael Cohen, the president's personal lawyer. Cohen has confirmed that Daniels has received a payment of $ 130,000 for her silence. She first described the parking lot threat in an interview on CBS "60 Minutes."
The White House has denied that Trump had a relationship with Daniels and said the president does not believe that she was threatened.
During a Show On Tuesday on ABC's The View, Daniels and her attorney Michael Avenatti published a sketch of the man she spoke to shortly after trying to sell a boulevard magazine claiming a brief affair with Trump ,
Avenatti said he offers a reward of $ 100,000 for information that leads to the identification of the man. The sketch showed a man Daniels had described in his 30s or 40s with sharp cheekbones and wavy hair.
Daniels, whose real name Stephanie is Clifford, said her recent efforts to talk about Trump are necessary to vouch for her integrity.
"It's my chance to defend myself and make people realize how and why that happened so I can tell my site," Daniels said. "What I do for a job does not affect my ability to correctly differentiate or tell the truth."
One day before he appeared on "The View," Daniels went to court in Manhattan , which focused on materials that the FBI of Cohen captured in a raid last week. Federal authorities have requested records of its involvement in settlements with women.
During her television appearance, Daniels said she was with her little daughter when the man showed up and said, "This is a beautiful little girl, it would be a shame if something was done to her mother." She also said that he She told her to leave Trump alone.
Daniels said she brought her daughter to a fitness class after a threat. When she looked shaken, Daniels said she had lied to a teacher who had checked her and said the child's diaper was leaking.
She said she did not report the incident to the police and said she had her story about Trump "and then the whole world would have known it."
The alleged incident came after Daniels had tried to sell her story about an affair with Trump to Bauer Publishing. She was interviewed in May 2011 and provided graphic details about her alleged meeting. According to statements by former Bauer employees, the story was deleted after Cohen threatened to sue.
On "The View," Daniels said she had not told her husband about the threat and that she had not told him about meeting Trump. "I did not want him to think I was a bad mother or that I had endangered our daughter," she said.
Daniels said that she told other people about the threat, including family members, friends, and people she worked with, but she did not identify any of them.
Avenatti had been preparing to release the sketch of suspense, though he postponed it after the FBI raid on Cohen's office last week.
Under the Files FBI Officials Asked to silence women who had affairs with Trump. In the most prominent example, Cohen reached a deal with Daniels, just days before Trump won the presidency in 2016. Trump did not deny the payment.
When asked if she was thinking about the impact of her story on Trump and his relatives, Daniels said, "I've literally thought of everything," and notes that she's been having an average of two hours of sleep a night lately , Finally, she said, "That's between him and his family."
Avenatti and Daniels both participated in the hearing on Monday as to whether Cohen's confiscated material was being checked by Trump before federal investigators. Avenatti said he wanted to make sure that materials that are relevant to Daniel's lawsuit in order to lose their tacit approval are preserved.
Daniels, whose appearance attracted a media mob, also spoke of the court hearings.
