Adult film star Stormy Daniels sued President Donald Trump on Tuesday, alleging that he never signed a nondisclosure agreement that his lawyer had arranged with her. The civil suit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and alleges that the agreement not to disclose Stephanie Clifford’s (known professionally as Stormy Daniels) “intimate” relationship with Trump is invalid because while both Clifford and Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen signed it, Trump never did. Clifford and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, are asking the Los Angeles County Superior Court to declare that both the hush agreement and the side agreement “were never formed, and therefore do not exist, because, among other things, Mr. Trump never signed the agreements.” Avenatti said if the suit is a victory, it would allow his client to “tell her story.” “Ms. Clifford believes it’s important that the public learn the truth about what happened,” he said. “I think it’s time for her to tell her story and for the public to decide who is telling the truth.” The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
