The Associated Press reports:
Donald Trump’s lawyer says the president doesn’t believe Stormy Daniels’ hush-money agreement is valid and won’t carry out a threat to sue the porn star for discussing her alleged affair with him.
Trump’s lawyer, Charles Harder, says in court papers Saturday the president has never believed he was a party in the agreement, which he didn’t sign.
The company set up by Trump’s former personal lawyer to handle Daniels’ contract offered to rescind the agreement and dropped plans for a threatened $20 million lawsuit against her.
I have been practicing law for nearly 20 yrs. Never before have I seen a defendant so frightened to be deposed as Donald Trump, especially for a guy that talks so tough. He is desperate and doing all he can to avoid having to answer my questions. He is all hat and no cattle.
