Melania to stay at Mar-a-Lago ahead of Stormy Daniels interview

Anderson Cooper earlier this month beginning speculation about what the porn star might discuss in the interview airing on Sunday

President Donald Trump has referred to stories around his alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels as a 'political hoax, ' a friend of the president said.

Beyond titillating details of Daniels' affair with the now-president, the "60 Minutes" interview could provide new details about an alleged effort to silence her.

"Being in the adult industry, I've developed a thick skin and maybe a little bit of a dark sense of humor", she said Saturday.

The interview airs shortly after former Playboy centerfold model Karen McDougal also accused Trump of an extramarital affair and filed a lawsuit to get out of a confidentiality agreement. That payment, she says, was meant to buy her silence about the alleged affair.

Daniels - facing a £14m lawsuit from Trump's lawyers - says she will use the money to pay for her legal fees in her battle to "tell the truth" about her supposed fling with the married Republican.

Mr Avenatti said the disc contains evidence proving the President had an affair with Stormy Daniels - real name Stephanie Clifford - and that it was a warning shot to Mr Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen.

In January, The Wall Street Journal was first to report that Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen had paid Daniels $130,000 before the 2016 election.

The payment has since become the focus of campaign finance complaints to the Federal Election Commission.

Cohen has admitted to facilitating a payment to Daniels in 2016.

On Sunday, Trump's close friend and Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy said Trump has told him he thinks that "much of the Stormy Daniels stuff was a political hoax".

Attorney Michael Cohen filed court documents last week that claimed each violation of her agreement carries a $1million penalty.

That big interview with Daniels, again, is on 60 Minutes tonight... Two days after filing a lawsuit against Mr Trump in Los Angeles Superior Court, he tweeted a photograph of himself with Ms Daniels and journalist Anderson Cooper with the Twitter handle @60Minutes and no further comment. But she said she also has been overwhelmed by an outpouring of support.

She continued, "And a guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone".

Those who have been following this story have likely noticed it has turned into a he-said-she-said matter.
