Stormy Daniels sues Trump over "con job" tweet about forensic sketch

01 May 2018

Stormy's lawyers today said that the tweet was "false and defamatory" and Ms Daniels is seeking a jury trial and unspecified damages. Trump referred to man as "nonexistent", and called the police sketch "a total con job".

In the latest lawsuit, Daniels is claiming that Trump "used his national and global audience of millions of people to make a false factual statement to denigrate and attack" her. "It also operates to accuse Ms. Clifford of committing a crime under NY law, as well as the law of numerous other states, in that it effectively states that Ms. Clifford falsely accused an individual of committing a crime against her when no such crime occurred", the complaint says. The suit claims Trump "purposely did not sign the agreement so he could later, if need be, publicly disavow any knowledge of the Hush Agreement and Ms. Clifford".

"The tabloid weekly is not merely friendly to Trump but operated on his personal behalf", wrote New York Magazine political columnist Jonathan Chait on Monday.

Neither Trump's lawyers nor the White House immediately responded to requests for comment.
