Attorney for Stormy Daniels releases results of a 2011 polygraph test which shows the adult film performer was likely telling the truth about having sex with Donald Trump; Ellison Barber reports from Washington.
The lawyer for Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, sent adult film star Stormy Daniels a cease and desist letter late Sunday following her interview with “60 Minutes” where she spoke about her alleged affair with Trump and claimed she faced threats to her safety.
Brent Blakely, Cohen's attorney, demanded that Daniels apologize for insinuating that his client was behind the threat she described that allegedly took place in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011.
Daniels said in the interview that an unidentified man told her: "Leave Trump alone. Forget the story."
She said she was with her daughter at the time and the man continued, "That's a beautiful little girl. It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom."
The letter, which was also sent to Daniel’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, demanded that the actress refrain from making “false and defamatory statements” about Cohen in the future.

Avenatti said, “Will this guy ever come clean with the American people or is he more interested in trying to role play Ray Donovan (badly)?”
Daniels went on to tell “60 Minutes” that she had one encounter of consensual sex with the future president.
"He knows I'm telling the truth," said Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford. She does not allege that she was coerced in her encounter with Trump, saying, "This is not a 'Me too.' I was not a victim."
Daniels received a $130,000 payment days before the 2016 presidential election for her silence and has sought to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement.
The White House did not immediately comment Sunday on the interview. Trump, through his representatives, has denied the allegations.
Cohen has said Trump never had an affair with Daniels. Cohen has said he paid the $130,000 out of his pocket. Cohen has said neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Daniels and he was not reimbursed for the payment.
In the interview, Daniels described a sexual encounter with Trump that began with him talking about himself and showing her an issue of a magazine with his picture on the cover.
She said she asked, "Does this ... does this normally work for you?" He was taken aback, she says. "And I was like, 'Someone should take that magazine and spank you with it.'" She says she then ordered him to drop his pants and, in a playful manner, "I just gave him a couple swats."

She said they talked some more, although he quit talking about himself, and that she became more comfortable.
"He was like, 'Wow, you — you are special. You remind me of my daughter.' You know — he was like, 'You're smart and beautiful, and a woman to be reckoned with, and I like you. I like you.'"Read More...
