Stormy Daniels Files Suit Against Donald Trump for Defamation Citing Tweet

He may come to regret that tweet.

NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 16: (L to R) Adult film actress Stormy Daniels (Stephanie Clifford) and Michael Avenatti, attorney for Stormy Daniels, speak to the media as they exit the United States District Court Southern District of New York for a hearing related to Michael Cohen, President Trump's longtime personal attorney and confidante, April 16, 2018 in New York City. Cohen and lawyers representing President Trump are asking the court to block Justice Department officials from reading documents and materials related to Cohen's relationship with President Trump that they believe should be protected by attorney-client privilege.

Stephanie Clifford, otherwise known as adult film actress Stormy Daniels, filed another lawsuit against President Donald Trump on Monday in New York federal court. The suit alleges the president defamed Clifford and cites an April Tweet Trump posted.

After Clifford and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, released a sketch of a man they allege threatened Clifford in 2011, telling her in a confrontation in Las Vegas to “leave Mr. Trump alone”, Trump called the announcement “a con job”.

The lawsuit calls the tweet “false and defamatory,” stating Trump referred to (Stormy) Daniels through the Tweet quoted, from “Deplorably Scottish”. The filing claims the president “knew that his false, disparaging statement would be read by people around the world, as well as widely reported.”

The suit also states Clifford was, as a result of the president’s deliberate actions, “exposed to death threats and other threats of physical violence.”

Daniels seeks her day in court before a jury, as opposed to a hearing before a judge alone. Her lawyer, Avenatti, in a statement Monday said:

We intend on teaching Mr. Trump that you cannot simply make things up about someone and disseminate them without serious consequences.”
