Donald Trump has just been hit with another lawsuit by Stormy Daniels. In this case, the adult entertainment actress is claiming Trump defamed her by questioning her story that she was threatened by a man in a Las Vegas parking lot over her and the president’s alleged sexual encounter.
As we previously reported, Daniels had worked with a sketch artist to create a portrait of the individual who threatened her not to go public about her encounter with Trump. Oddly enough, the sketch looked an awful lot like Tom Brady, but we’re pretty sure it’s not Mr. Gisele Bündchen who suggested that Stormy’s daughter may find herself an orphan, if Stormy opened her mouth about her affair with Trump.
When the sketch was released, Trump tweeted, “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”
According to Daniels, said tweet was a lie. As her lawsuit explains, Trump’s tweet was tantamount to saying Stormy falsely accused someone else of a crime, which means he defamed her, which is also… a crime! It’s like a Russian Doll of criminal accusations. (See what I did there?)
Anyway, the lawsuit was filed in federal court in New York on Monday. The complaint reads, "Mr. Trump used his national and international audience of millions of people to make a false factual statement to denigrate and attack Ms. Clifford." As Daniels' attorney notes, "Regardless of who you are or what position you hold, you are not permitted to fabricate statements in an effort to deceive people. There are consequences for doing that." Here's hoping.
