Stormy Daniels has reached a settlement with Michael Cohen and Keith Davidson, her former attorney, in her lawsuit that accused both men of working together to protect President Donald Trump
Daniels, an adult-film actress whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, sued Cohen, Trump's former personal attorney, and Davidson last June, accusing them of brokering a deal in which she was paid $130,000 to prevent her from publicly speaking about her alleged sexual relationship with Trump.
Trump has denied there was a sexual encounter, but his attorneys admit to approving the $130,000 payment to Daniels to ensure her silence.
In the lawsuit, Daniels alleged that the two men "colluded" and "acted in concert" to "manipulate" her and to benefit Trump. When the men became aware of an impending In Touch magazine article that would detail Daniels' descriptions of her alleged affair with Trump, Cohen "hatched a plan to have Ms. Clifford appear on Mr. Sean Hannity's program to falsely deny the accuracy of the In Touch article," the lawsuit stated.
