[Ed. – Is she also filing one against the directors and producers of her porno films?]
The adult film actress who claims she had an affair more than a decade ago with President Trump has filed a defamation lawsuit against him.
In an escalating legal fight against Trump, Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti filed the complaint in federal court in New York on Monday.
The lawsuit is over an April 18 tweet by the president that said a forensic sketch of a man who allegedly threatened Daniels over the alleged affair — whose real name is Stephanie Clifford — in 2011 was a “total con job.”
In a tweet, Avenatti said Trump is “well aware of what transpired and his complicity.”
“By calling the incident a ‘con job,’ Mr. Trump’s statement would be understood to state that Ms. Clifford was fabricating the crime and the existence of the assailant, both of which are prohibited under New York law, as well as the law of numerous other states,” Avenatti wrote in the lawsuit.
