Posted November 29, 2018 Share Posted November 29, 2018 https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/nov/29/stormy-daniels-michael-avenatti-trump-defamation-lawsuit Quote Stormy Daniels, the adult film actor who claims she had an affair with Donald Trump 12 years ago, has said her lawyer sued the president this year without her permission and has not been transparent about money raised on her behalf via an online fundraising appeal. In a statement given to the Daily Beast, Daniels said Michael Avenatti “has been a great advocate in many ways” but he “has not treated me with the respect and deference an attorney should show to a client”. She said she had not decided “what to do about legal representation moving forward”. Quote In her statement, Daniels said Avenatti filed the defamation lawsuit against Trump “against my wishes” and that she had been kept in the dark about online fundraisers “for my safety and legal defense”. She continued: “He repeatedly refused to tell me how my legal defense fund was being spent. Now he has launched a new crowdfunding campaign using my face and name without my permission and attributing words to me that I never wrote or said. I’m deeply grateful to my supporters and they deserve to know their money is being spent responsibly. I don’t want to hurt Michael, but it’s time to set the record straight. The truth has always been my greatest ally.” Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
