Trump’s Tweet Gets Him Sued For Defamation By His Porn Star Mistress Stormy Daniels

President Donald Trump for a tweet that said a forensic sketch of a man who allegedly threatened her in 2011  was “a total con job.”  Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006 and was warned by an unidentified man to keep quiet about it five years later, after she gave an interview to a gossip magazine.

Earlier this month, Clifford worked with a forensic artist to create a sketch of the man she says accosted her in a Las Vegas parking lot, told her, “Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,” and ominously suggested something bad could happen to her.

The lawsuit filed Monday in federal court in Manhattan centers on an April 18 post on Trump’s Twitter account in which he reacts to another person’s tweet about the sketch.

“A sketch years later about a nonexistent man,” Trump’s post said. “A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

The suit alleges Trump’s comment amounts to an accusation that Clifford fabricated the threat and exposed her to ridicule and violent threats.

“Mr. Trump used his national and international audience of millions of people to make a false factual statement to denigrate and attack Ms. Clifford,” the complaint says.

 

 

Clifford’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, said, “Regardless of who you are or what position you hold, you are not permitted to fabricate statements in an effort to deceive people. There are consequences for doing that.”

This is the second lawsuit that Clifford has filed against Trump. Earlier this year she sued him and his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to dissolve a confidentiality agreement she signed days before the 2016 election in exchange for $130,000.

 

Trump’s attorney had no immediate comment on the defamation claim.
