What Happened to Stormy Daniels's Interview With Anderson Cooper?

Adult star Stormy Daniels appears to be unsure when, or indeed if, her recorded 60 Minutes segment will air, after President Donald Trump’s lawyers reportedly attempted to prevent it from being shown.

The actress claims she had a sexual relationship with Trump in 2006, shortly after his wife Melania gave birth to their son Barron—an allegation the president denies.

But Daniels’s lawyer insists the relationship did take place, also explaining in an interview with NBC that his client had spoken out despite a non-disclosure agreement because the agreement was signed by Trump’s lawyer rather than Trump himself.

Daniels's lawyer recently posted pictures of her along with 60 Minutes host Anderson Cooper to social media, but an air date for the segment has not been given, and the president’s lawyers are seeking to block the screening, according to a Buzzfeed report.

Daniels, for her part, did not comment on any of the potential legal issues surrounding the airing of the show, nor did she comment on anything she and Cooper had discussed.

 “All I can say is it was never going to air tonight and I guess we will see what happens,” Daniels said in an email to The Washington Post Sunday.

Daniels, who was paid $130,000 in hush money as part of the non-disclosure agreement, last week announced she was suing Trump over the agreement—alleging he purposely did not sign it so that he could disavow any knowledge of the agreement and Daniels in future.

The lawsuit also claimed that there were ongoing efforts to silence Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

"To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms. Clifford into silence and 'shut her up' in order to 'protect Mr. Trump' continue unabated," the lawsuit claims, lending weight to recent reports that the president's lawyers are attempting to prevent the 60 Minutes interview from airing.
