The scandalous Trump affair plot — if you’ll forgive my gross phrasing — continues to thicken. Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump from 2006 to 2007, is now suing the President for allegedly neglecting to sign the nondisclosure agreement which supposedly prohibited Daniels from discussing the pair’s intimate relationship.
In the civil suit, which was filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, Daniels and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, claim that the agreement made with Trump is not valid since the document does not contain Trump’s signature. The agreement was signed by both Daniels and Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen.
Earlier today, we filed this complaint seeking a ct order voiding the alleged “hush” agreement between our client S. Clifford aka Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump. https://t.co/upa9u10MqR

Daniels (referred to as Clifford in some news reports) was supposedly paid to keep quiet about the Trump affair, and forced to sign the nondisclosure agreement. As NBC reports:
The 2016 hush agreement directed that $130,000 be paid into the trust account of Clifford’s then-attorney. In return, Clifford was not to disclose any confidential information about Trump or his sexual partners to anyone beyond a short list of individuals she’d already told about the relationship, or share any texts or photos from Trump.
Daniels is now being pressured to honor the “hush agreement,” but neither she nor her lawyer believes that she has violated any sort of contract since the aforementioned agreement is supposedly null and void without Trump’s signature.
“To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms. Clifford into silence and ‘shut her up’ in order to ‘protect Mr. Trump’ continue unabated,” the suit states. “On or about February 27, 2018, Mr. Trump’s attorney Mr. Cohen surreptitiously initiated a bogus arbitration proceeding against Ms. Clifford in Los Angeles.”
The suit implores the Los Angeles Superior Court to officially declare that the “hush agreement” never actually existed, “because, among other things, Mr. Trump never signed the agreements.”
This turn of events is particularly prickly considering the fact that the civil suit indicates there is physical evidence of the affair between Trump and Daniels. Specifically, “certain still images and/or text messages.”
The agreement strongly suggests there is some form of electronic proof of the relationship (defined in the agreement as “the Property”), whether it’s photos, videos or text messages or all of the above is unclear.

It’s unclear as to what exactly this evidence might be — however, if the NDA is deemed null and void, Daniels will be legally allowed to share this information with the public.
So, prepare yourselves: we may not get a pee tape, but we may very well see some Trump sexts, which is sure to be the stuff of nightmares.
