Stormy Daniels Offers "Hush Agreement" Money Back To Speak Freely

Stormy Daniels has reportedly offered to return a $130,000 payment she received from President Donald Trump's attorney in exchange for dissolving a "hush agreement." 

In a letter sent to Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney, Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, offered to "pay $130,000 to President Trump by wire transfer, to an account designated by the president," before Friday. 

In exchange, the settlement agreement between Clifford, Trump and Cohen's LLC would be deemed "null and void." 

Trump has never admitted to having knowledge of the payment to Daniels. 

NBC News on Friday reported that Michael Cohen had used a Trump Organization email address as he worked to secure payment to Daniels. NBC printed a copy of an email from a banker at First Republic Bank that was sent to Cohen, who then forwarded the email to a private Gmail account. 

Critics say the payment most likely violated federal election law. 

The adult film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was paid by Michael Cohen ahead of the 2016 election in exchange for her promised silence about an alleged sexual affair Clifford had with Trump in 2006. Both Cohen and the White House have denied any sexual encounter occurred between the president and Clifford. 

Rescinding the 'hush agreement' would allow Clifford to begin talking publicly about her alleged affair with Trump and "use and publish any text messages, photos and/or videos relating to the President that she may have in her possession, all without fear of retribution and/or legal liability for damages."
