NBC News reports:
The lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who says she had sex with Donald Trump in 2006, has filed a motion in federal court asking for permission to depose the president and his lawyer, Michael Cohen.
The move comes amid a lawsuit against Trump, alleging that he never signed a nondisclosure agreement that his lawyer had arranged with Daniels, and just days after a revealing interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” in which she detailed an alleged affair with the married mogul and claimed she was threatened in 2011 if she went public.
The request was filed late Tuesday in a Los Angeles court and will be heard on April 30, Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tweeted Wednesday morning.
The motion is set to be heard on April 30, 2018. We are confident that the Court will permit the requested discovery after applying Supreme Court precedent and the well established law in the Ninth Circuit. https://t.co/PQh6UlNyNL
