*WASHINGTON: *Adult film star Stormy Daniels has filed a lawsuit against US President Donald Trump . The actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims that she is not bound by non-disclosure restrictions.

The lawsuit alleges that she had an “intimate relationship” with Donald Trump between 2006-07 but that she was approached by Trump’s lawyer during the 2016 presidential race amid the controversy generated by the Access Hollywood Tape.

Several women publicly accused Trump of sexual harassment soon afterwards.

The lawsuit, filed in the State of California, states that a $130,000 were sent to her attorney’s trust account by Michael Cohen even though there had been no ”hush agreement”. Donald Trump “purposely did not sign the agreement so he could later, if need be, publicly disavow any knowledge” of Stephanie Clifford, said her attorney on Wednesday.

“Despite Mr Trump’s failure to sign the hush agreement, Mr Cohen proceeded to cause $130,000.00 to be wired to the trust account of Ms Clifford’s attorney. He did so even though there was no legal agreement and thus no written nondisclosure agreement whereby Ms Clifford was restricted from disclosing the truth about Mr Trump,” read the lawsuit.

Trump’s personal lawyer has repeatedly tried to silence the adult star, alleged her attorney. “To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms Clifford into silence and ‘shut her up’ in order to ‘protect Mr Trump’ continue unabated,” states the lawsuit. “For example, only days ago on or about February 27, 2018, Mr Trump’s attorney Mr Cohen surreptitiously initiated a bogus arbitration proceeding against Ms Clifford in Los Angeles. Remarkably, he did so without even providing Ms Clifford with notice of the proceeding and basic due process,” the document added.

Michael Cohen has admitted that he wired funds but denies any link to the Trump campaign. “Neither the Trump Organisation nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly, ” he said.

He added that Donald Trump “Vehemently denies” any involvement with Stephanie Clifford. Agencies
