US President Trump sued for defamation by adult film star Stormy Daniels

10 Things to Know for Tuesday

Stormy Daniels filed the complaint in federal court in NY on Monday.

At issue is a tweet by Trump in which he dismissed a composite sketch that Daniels says depicted a man who threatened her in 2011 to stay quiet about her alleged relationship with Trump.

"A sketch years later about a nonexistent man", Trump wrote.

The suit also alleges that when Daniels was threatened very few people knew of her contact with In Touch Weekly about her allegations of having an affair with Trump in 2006.

A California judge last week halted Daniels' lawsuit against Cohen for 90 days while a criminal investigation of the President's lawyer moves forward in NY.

The lawsuit claims that the offending tweet "falsely attacks the veracity of Ms. Clifford's account of the threatening incident that took place in 2011".

Daniels is seeking upward of $75,000 in damages in this lawsuit.

According to Monday's court filing, Daniels has been "exposed to death threats and other threats of physical violence, causing her both emotional and economic damages".

Aided by her hard-charging attorney, Daniels has aggressively sought to keep her case in the public eye.

And now, she's diving further down the legal rabbit hole over a tweet by the United States president saying that she was she was playing a "con job" on the media.

Trump's campaign made three "legal consulting" payments between October and January to McDermott Will and Emery, a Manhattan law firm where Cohen's lawyer Stephen Ryan is a partner, Federal Election Commission records reveal.

A federal judge in Los Angeles agreed Friday to a request by Cohen and Trump to put that case on hold for 90 days due to an ongoing criminal investigation into Cohen's business activities. That payment could in turn also have violated campaign finance laws if Trump coordinated or reimbursed Cohen for it. Cohen has admitted to making the payment, but has refused to explain why or whether Trump ever repaid him.
