Stormy Daniels Says in Interview She Was Told to 'Leave Trump Alone' in Parking Lot Threat Involving Infant Daughter

In her much-anticipated 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper, Stormy Daniels recounted a strange man approaching her in a Las Vegas parking lot and threatening her just a few weeks after In Touch magazine killed a story on her alleged affair with President Donald Trump.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, says she had her infant daughter in tow and was on her way to a fitness class when the alleged threat occurred.

"A guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,'" Daniels told Cooper. "And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, 'That's a beautiful little girl. It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom.' And then he was gone."

Daniels said she considered the man's words to be a direct threat to her well-being.

"I was rattled," she said on Sunday night's segment. "I remember going into the workout class. And my hands are shaking so much, I was afraid I was gonna—drop her."

Daniels said it was the last she ever saw of the man. She said she never reported the incident to the police because she was scared.

During the interview, Daniels said her alleged affair with the president occurred between 2006 and 2007, just a year after Trump married first lady Melania Trump. At the time of the alleged affair, Melania had just given birth to Barron.

Daniels' interview with Cooper could come at a steep price for the adult film actress: A lawyer representing the president has already filed a legal complaint arguing that Daniels has already violated her non-disclosure agreement about 20 times, and requesting $1 million per infraction. Sunday night's 60 Minutes appearance could mean another $1 million fine for Daniels.

Her legal team maintains that the non-disclosure she signed in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election is invalid because Trump failed to sign it. Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing Daniels, says it's obvious that the then-Republican nominee didn't sign the document so he could claim plausible deniability for the alleged 2006 affair. He said Trump lawyers' threat to charge Daniels $20 million in damages represents another attempt to silence his client.

"It's a cover-up of a cover-up," Avenatti told Newsweek last week, ahead of his client's 60 Minutes interview.
