President Donald Trump and his lawyer, Michael Cohen, on Tuesday missed a deadline that could have nullified a hush agreement on adult film star Stephanie Clifford, who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels.
Through her attorney, Michael Avenatti, Clifford on Monday offered to return $130,000 in hush money to Cohen if he would declare the contract “null and void.” Voiding the contract would allow Clifford to speak about an alleged affair with Trump.
But Avenatti revealed in a tweet on Tuesday, that Trump and Cohen had missed the deadline to revoke the contract.
And although Avenatti did not offer specifics, he hinted that legal action was coming.
“Time to buckle up,” Clifford’s attorney wrote.
The President and Mr. Cohen have purposely ignored our settlement offer, thus doubling down on their efforts to muzzle Ms. Clifford and prevent her from telling the American people what happened. Time to buckle up. #basta
