The sex actress Stormy Daniels sues Donald Trump

The White House says President Donald Trump has already won an arbitration case against an adult film actress who says she had sex with Trump and is suing to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement.

Clifford filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior court.

Tune in to "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday, March 7, to hear from Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing Clifford.

But her lawsuit claims that she and Trump had an "intimate relationship" starting in 2006 and going into 2007. However, the lawsuit claims that when he was running for office and multiple women were coming forward to share stories of their own alleged encounters with the then-Republican presidential candidate, Cohen intervened in an attempt to keep Clifford from coming forward as well.

The documents also state Trump used the alias David Dennison but because Trump did not sign the NDA, Avenatti argues the agreement is now "legally null and void of no outcome".

In a side letter, the identity of Dennison is blacked out, but Clifford's lawyer claims that individual is Trump.

The agreement was entered into on October 28, 2016, the week before the election, according to the lawsuit, which Avenatti's firm posted online.

The agreement specifies arbitration to resolve disputes, and in the lawsuit, Daniels said Cohen began "a bogus arbitration proceeding" against her last month.

McDougal's account of her alleged affair with Trump was purchased for $150,000 by American Media, Inc. - the publisher of the National Enquirer - but the news outlet never ran the story.

"Each document includes a blank where "DD" is supposed to sign, but neither blank is signed", NBC wrote.

A defense lawyer representing Cohen did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday. This was after his marriage to Melania and during the birth of his son Barron.

Both Daniels and Trump denied any affair in statements to the Journal in January. The report said Clifford was paid $130,000 to sign a nondisclosure agreement and not discuss the relationship.

Avenatti added: "She's looking to disclose the truth about what happened". "The extent of Mr. Trump's involvement in these efforts is presently unknown, but it strains credibility to conclude that Mr. Cohen is acting on his own accord".

Lieu and Rice believe the alleged "hush" agreement - which involved a $130,000 payment from Cohen to Daniels - violates federal election laws.

Cohen acknowledged the payment in a statement in February but claimed that neither the Trump campaign nor the Trump Organization "was a party to the transaction".

And she says he continues to try to intimidate her into silence to protect Trump.
