Michael Cohen had a VERY full day yesterday.
Talking Points Memo reports:
Michael Cohen, the longtime personal attorney of President Donald Trump, on Monday asked a federal judge in California to dismiss porn actress Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against him. Daniels added the defamation complaint to her lawsuit against Trump last month, arguing that Cohen insinuated that she was a liar when he denied that Daniels and Trump had an affair in a February statement.
Daniels is suing Trump over the hush agreement she signed barring her from discussing her alleged affair with Trump. She argues that the agreement is invalid because Trump never signed it. In the motion to dismiss the charge on Monday, Cohen’s lawyer argued that Cohen’s statement was true, noting that Daniels at one point denied the affair with Trump. She has since detailed the alleged relationship and said she only denied the affair due to the hush agreement she signed.
