The performer and director Stormy Daniels said during a questions and questions session at a women's cooperative space in Washington Tuesday that she might be ready for more legal fights.
"I have a new solicitor," she said, referring to Clark Brewster. "The data will come out very soon. And … my new attorney said, you know, today, 'Things about to be truly interesting.'
Daniels, whose name is Stephanie Clifford, has said that she had sex with Trump in 2006 and that she had to comply with a nondisclosure agreement with payment days of € 130,000 in cash before the presidential election. Asked his issue – filed in March 2018 – the agreement was invalidated so that she could speak out without a multi-million dollar penalty.
Last week, a federal judge dismissed the lawsuit to end the hush-money agreement.
Daniels claimed victory on Tuesday and promised that there was further litigation to come. "I was very focused on the NDA," she said.
"I see it as a win because I wanted to administer the NDA invalid, or illegal," Daniels said.
She filed an extra suit that accused Trump of slander when he asked to claim that a man had threatened her and told her to remain silent about their alleged liaison "full con job."
This outfit was dropped.
"I lost that case," Daniels said to the crowd in Washington. " It has been proved that I did not, so I – I think we are going to try that one again.
When asked if she felt that public exposure to publicity would affect Trump's re-election opportunities in 2020, Daniels replied: “It will be his own dishonesty. "
Earlier Tuesday, it was announced that Daniels and attorney Michael Avenatti were separating routes. Avenatti represented Daniels in his issue against Trump.
Avenatti said Tuesday that he told Daniels last month that his agreement had ended and that he had made the decision after a lengthy discussion. It would not give details.
She asked Avenatti's statement about her "adorable" split, suggesting that he released it proactively because she was already walking away.
“Michael knew I was very unhappy with some things – I have a duty not to be able to share it,” she said. "But trust me – he knew I was unhappy and I was looking for a new advocate."
In November, Daniels told the Daily Beast that Trump had defeated “against my wishes” filed by Avenatti and said that it was not meant to be cash intended to help her. She later said that both of them worked things out.
Former Trump's personal solicitor, Michael Cohen, has said that it has helped to facilitate the payment of money.
Daniels told the crowd that she tried not to look at Cohen's marathon evidence before Congress last month but when she went to a nail salon, then it was, on TV. That day, the attorney, who was convicted of Congress during a previous session, said that Trump ordered him to pay to Daniels.
"I mean, god, I can't escape from this man," she said.
But, she said, he found that his evidence was credible.
"He is tired of bullying him. He is tired of being called a liar and is called a rat and no matter what you know," she said. " I was, as was, 'Wow, it really sounds from the heart.' I am so proud of doing the right thing. "
