Stephanie Clifford, a pornographic actress known professionally as "Stormy Daniels", offered Monday to return the $130,000 payment she received in October 2016 for her continued silence about an alleged affair with President Donald Trump. In the latest, there are claims that he attempted to keep adult film star, Stormy Daniels, quiet after they had a romance in 2006. According to Daniels' attorney, her story includes "text messages, photos and/or videos".

Michael Avenatti, Daniel's lawyer, sent the proposed deal - a copy of which was obtained by The Post - to Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, on Monday morning, and set a deadline of noon Tuesday for Cohen to respond.

"Our aim and our messaging is very simple: We're going to shoot straight, we're going to provide evidence and facts, and we are going to consistently advocate for the American people being able to make their own decisions as to who's telling the truth and who's lying to them", assures Avenatti.

Trump's lawyers are reportedly preparing a legal action to block Stormy Daniels" silence-breaking interview with "60 Minutes' from airing next Sunday.

Although Cohen says he paid the money to Clifford and was not reimbursed by Trump's company or campaign, Avenatti said she is offering to pay Trump "because we do not believe there is any doubt as to where the money came from originally, in reality".

Avenatti told CNN's "New Day" last week that Clifford would "absolutely" pay back the $130,000 if she was allowed to speak about the alleged affair.

Daniels sued Trump last week, saying he didn't sign the agreement.

But Trump never signed it, providing the basis for Avenatti's attempt to have it thrown out and release Daniels from her obligations.
