READ: Michael Avenatti Tweets Response to Donald Trump’s Filing for Private Arbitration in Stormy Daniels Case

President Donald Trump has requested private arbitration in the lawsuit between himself and porn star Stormy Daniels (Stephanie Clifford). Clifford’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted in response to what he sees as a bizarre move by the president and his lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Last month, Clifford and Avenatti filed a motion to depose Trump and Cohen, but it was denied. Avenatti believes that this “matter should be decided in an open court of law owned by the people.”

Trump has remained curiously silent on this issue, although the White House maintains there was no relationship between Trump and Clifford in 2006. Clifford and Avenatti are suing Trump over a non-disclosure agreement, which they claim to be void because Trump never signed it. The agreement was signed less than two weeks before the 2016 presidential election.

Clifford and Avenatti argue that the NDA was never intended to be between Clifford and Cohen, who paid Clifford $130,000 in hush money just before the election. The money was funneled through an LLC set up by Cohen, however, the origin of the funds remains inconclusive.

Clifford and Avenatti insist that they have irrefutable proof of the affair and the president is threatening to sue Clifford for $20 million for alleged breaches of the NDA, even though he (listed as David Dennison) never signed it. They have hinted at being in possession of emails, texts, pictures, and videos.
