Stormy Daniels defamation case against Trump set to be dismissed, judge signals

Stormy Daniels defamation case against Trump set to be dismissed, judge signalsThe judge presiding over Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against Donald Trump has said the president was engaging in free speech when he posted a controversial tweet about the adult film actor. US District Judge James S Otero has not yet made a decision in the case, but appeared to support Mr Trump’s attorneys during a hearing, saying the message “appears to be rhetorical hyperbole by a public official involving a public figure”. The tweet in question arrived after Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, and her attorney released a composite sketch of the man they said approached her in a parking lot after she agreed to publish an interview about her alleged affair with Mr Trump.

Judge cancels hearing in Stormy Daniels case against Trump, CohenAccording to an order issued on Monday, U.S. District Judge James Otero decided it was unnecessary to hear arguments on the request by Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti to lift a 90-day stay imposed on April 28.

Stormy Daniels issues warning to Donald Trump in comedy sketch

Stormy Daniels issues warning to Donald Trump in comedy sketchAdult film actress Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with President Donald Trump, played herself in a sketch on the comedy programme Saturday Night Live in which she warns Mr Trump that "a storm's a-comin baby." In the show, Mr Trump, played by actor Alec Baldwin, asks his lawyer, Michael Cohen, played by Ben Stiller, to call Daniels and try to fix their ongoing legal battle "once and for all." Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sued Mr Trump in March to get out of a "hush agreement" over their alleged relationship in which she was paid $ 130,000 by Cohen to keep quiet.  Mr Trump has denied he had an affair with Clifford. In the sketch aired on Saturday night, Mr Trump listens in to the conversation between Cohen and Clifford and soon cuts his lawyer off to speak directly with her. "What do you need for all this to just go away?" he asks. "A resignation," Clifford says. Mr Trump persists, saying: "I solved North and South Korea, why can't I solve us?" A combination photo of Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels and U.S. President Donald Trump Clifford says it's too late for that. "I know you don't believe in climate change, but a storm's a-comin baby," Clifford says, before she and Baldwin break off to give the show's trademark introduction "live from New York it's Saturday Night Live!"
