Summary: Porn star Stormy Daniels is hoping she can give back the money she was paid to keep her confidential information secret.

In an attempt to have the freedom to discuss her relationship with President Donald Trump, porn star Stormy Daniels is offering to pay back the hush money she was given by his attorney. Daniels, legally known as Stephanie Clifford, signed a nondisclosure agreement and was paid $130,000 to keep her intimate dealings with Trump a decade ago private.

Clifford made the offer to Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, in a letter on Monday, according to NBC News. She claims to have text messages, photos, and videos. She has requested that Trump designate an account by Friday that she can wire the money to. According to the New York Times, the letter explains that Clifford can “speak openly and freely about her prior relationship with the president and the attempts to silence her and use and publish and text messages, photos and videos relating to the president that she may have in her possession, all without fear of retribution or legal liability.”

Her attorney, Michael Avenatti said, “This has never been about the money. It has always been about Ms. Clifford being allowed to tell the truth. The American people should be permitted to judge for themselves who is shooting straight with them and who is misleading them. Our offer seeks to allow this to happen.”

Clifford claims to have had a sexual relationship with Trump in 2006 and 2007. He denies having an affair with the porn star. Trump married Melania in 2005.

Cohen has secured a temporary restraining order from a private arbitrator preventing Clifford from releasing “confidential information” as outlined in the agreement. He told the Washington Post last week, “I believe Mr. Avenatti’s actions and behavior has been both reckless and imprudent as it opens Ms. Clifford to substantial monetary liability, which I intend to pursue.”
