In an interview with MSNBC’s "Morning Joe," Michael Avenatti, an attorney for Daniels, repeatedly said that his client had been threatened, but wouldn’t say by who. He also declined to give details on the nature of the threats.
Clifford has contended, however, that the pact is void because Trump never signed the agreement.
The White House has denied the allegation that Trump had an affair with Clifford. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said last week that as far as she knows, the president was not aware Cohen paid Clifford the $130,000. Cohen has previously said he used his own funds to facilitate the payment, and "neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly."
