Posted on 03/20/2018 12:08:04 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
A former Playboy model who claimed she had an affair with Donald J. Trump sued on Tuesday to be released from a 2016 legal agreement requiring her silence, becoming the second woman this month to challenge Trump allies efforts during the presidential campaign to bury stories about extramarital relationships.
The model, Karen McDougal, is suing the company that owns The National Enquirer, American Media Inc., which paid her $150,000 and whose chief executive is a friend of President Trumps. The other woman, the adult entertainment star Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels, was paid $130,000 to stay quiet by the presidents personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen. She filed suit earlier this month.
Both women, who argue that their contracts are invalid, are trying to get around clauses requiring them to resolve disputes in secretive arbitration proceedings rather than in open court. Mr. Trump has denied the affairs.
Ms. McDougal, in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, claims that Mr. Cohen was secretly involved in her talks with A.M.I., and that the media company and her lawyer at the time misled her about the deal. She also asserts that after she spoke with The New Yorker last month after it obtained notes she kept on Mr. Trump, A.M.I. warned that any further disclosures would breach Karens contract and cause considerable monetary damages.
In an email to The New York Times, her new lawyer, Peter K. Stris, accused A.M.I. of a multifaceted effort to silence Karen McDougal.

In November 2016, we had a choice between a patriot with a somewhat sleazy past, and a communist destroyer with a murderous past.
It was not a difficult choice to make.
Big deal, we all knew Donald was a playboy before his presidency, so who gives a damn. He is one helluva great POTUS.
zit sure seems the only issue the left can ever bring up against a conservative is sexual...
They fail at everything else they’ve tried...
Sounds like she’s always been a gold digger. Hey! Free money! And she won’t have to take her clothes off!
More alluring to Ms. McDougal, who is now a fitness specialist, was that the media company would feature her on its covers and in regular health and fitness columns, the complaint says...kick start and revitalize her career, given that she was old now. She was 45.
If one ever wanted to think an affair would sink a politician, well, too bad. They shouldn’t have dismissed it back when Clinton was president. This also, assuming it was years ago, isn’t that dirty because it’s not now, while he is POTUS, wasting time in office.
That's because some conservatives have a sense of shame that can be manipulated. It's been fairly effective over the years, but like the race card, its effectiveness may have peaked.
Not that I would ever Google her photos online but if I did I would have noticed that her boobs look like they could be enhanced a wee bit....
My guess is that we never would have heard from these porno stars, if anyone but Trump had gotten elected in 2016.
OK, so she maxes out on the hot axis, but her eyes says she also maxes out on the crazy axis, putting her right on the Fun Zone/Danger Zone dividing line.
Like James Bond, there are many evil people who would try to destroy Trump. But Trump is a hero to many of us. Despite the attraction women have for him. He gets the job done despite the dalliances with women. Trump is a survivor, and he will continue to win for the next 7 years.
“...promises of apartments as gifts....A mutual friend connected her to Mr. Davidson, who, she said, told her the story could be worth millions... Mr. Davidson told her before the interview that A.M.I. would put $500,000 in an escrow account for her, and that a seven-figure publishing contract awaited her, the complaint reads....with Mr. Davidson and others involved on her behalf taking 45 percent”
to ‘revive her career’ because she was 45yo.
Sounds like blackmail to me.
Lemme get this straight........uh, a porn star and a playboy model, women of such high caliber and outstanding moral character would actually have affairs with men????? Nah.........
What’s the problem? If she talks I’m sure Tom Steyer and George Soros can pay-off many times the amount of her damages.
That might be true. But when someone has been SO DEMONIZED by the media, and the list of insane attacks starts with working with Putin to steal the election, the burden of proof is on the accuser.
This is not even taking in mind the legal premise of justice in this country which is innocent until proven guilty.
How many millions of dollars of free publicity do pornstars get coming forward, not to mention Commies/Socialists/Democrats throwing money at them?
The media has proven time and time again they will run anything against Trump with zero fact-checking.
