Daniels is suing to release her from her non-disclosure agreement with the president, which prevents her from speaking publicly about the details of her relationship with Trump, whatever those may be. In return, Clifford was not to disclose any confidential information about Trump or his sexual partners to anyone beyond a short list of individuals she'd already told about the relationship, or share any texts or photos from Trump. She says she began an "intimate relationship" with Trump years before his political aspirations took shape and more than a year into his marriage to now-first lady Melania Trump.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

While Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen and the White House have denied allegations of an affair between Trump and Daniels, Avenatti further told Guthrie that Daniels was indeed paid hush money to keep quiet on the matter.

In January, The Wall Street Journal broke the news of a hush agreement between Daniels and Trump, arranged through his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

The agreement included as an exhibit in Tuesday's filing is signed by Clifford and dated October 28, 2016. "For example, only days ago on or about February 27, 2018, Mr. Trump's attorney Mr. Cohen surreptitiously initiated a bogus arbitration proceeding against Ms. Clifford in Los Angeles". "I$3 t strains credulity to conclude that Mr. Cohen is acting on his own accord and without the express approval and knowledge of his client Mr. Trump".

Porn star Stormy Daniels had previously dodged questions from Jimmy Kimmel about an alleged affair she had with President Donald Trump. In a letter attached to the document, "Peterson" is identified as a pseudonym for Clifford, while the true identity of "Dennison" is redacted.

It raised rates three times last year, and investors are debating whether it will add another three or four increases this year. The broad-based S&P 500 shed 1.7 percent to 2,667.39, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index fell 1.8 percent to 7,140.94.

The growing scandal between President Trump and adult entertainer Stormy Daniels (nee Stephanie Clifford) has intensified.

The "hush agreement" used alias names to refer to Trump and Daniels within the agreement, according to the lawsuits.

In an interview on "CBS This Morning" Daniels' new attorney, Michael Avenatti, said that Clifford will "absolutely not" be seeking to profit from her story but then qualified his initial assertion by saying, "I don't know whether she's gonna ultimately seek payment or not".

Cohen has said that he paid Clifford out of his own pocket and that he was never reimbursed by the Trump campaign or the Trump Organization. "And second, did he know about the payment and the agreement?" said Avenatti, reached by phone Tuesday evening. Avenatti also said that Daniels had been intimidated to remain silent about her alleged affair with Trump.

"After discovering Ms. Clifford's plans, Mr. Trump, with the assistance of his attorney, Mr. Cohen, aggressively sought to silence Ms. Clifford as part of an effort to avoid her telling the truth, thus helping to ensure he won the Presidential Election", the suit said.
