“Slander is the revenge of a coward, and dissimulation of his defense” – Samuel Johnson
This story just continue to blow into the face of the President. Surely the minutes spent with Stormy Daniels aka Stephanie Clifford must really feel like a blow-job today. Because nothing can feel lie headache as this is. The attorney for Stormy Daniels is really a renegade fighter, whose not letting the chips fall down and give space for the President. Donald J. Trump has again created trouble for himself.
What so powerful is that Twitter Account of the President is used against him. It is really something else, that his own unhinged narratives and trying to steer the airways are now hitting him wrong in the halls of justice. That is really priceless, that a man so off the hook with no bounds of slander or hearsay, that usually get away with anything. Now has met his match, an Attorney who clearly knows how to hold himself and also get the worst out of the President.
This here is quoted from the document today:
“20. Ms. Clifford has suffered damage as a result of Mr. Trump’s false and defamatory statement in an amount to be proven at trial but in excess of $75,000” (…) “21. Plaintiff restates and re-alleges each and every allegation in Paragraphs 1 through 20 above as if fully set forth herein. 22. On or about April 18, 2018, Mr. Trump made the above mentioned false statement regarding Ms. Clifford, her account of the 2011 threatening incident, and the sketch of the man who threatened her: “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!” 23. Mr. Trump’s statement was made in writing online and released by Mr. Trump with the intent that it be widely disseminated and repeated. Indeed, Mr. Trump knows that his personal Twitter account has an audience of over 50 million followers and that the Twitter post would be repeated and reported upon by other news and media outlets online, in print, and on television and radio” (…) “Moreover, by calling the incident a “con job” Mr. Trump’s statement would be understood to state that Ms. Clifford was fabricating the crime and the existence of the assailant, both of which are prohibited under New York law, as well as the law of numerous other states” (…) “In making the defamatory statement identified herein, Mr. Trump acted with malice, oppression, or fraud, and is thus responsible for punitive damages in an amount to be proven at trial according to proof” (Michael J. Avenatti – ‘Case 1:18-cv-03842 Document 1 Filed 04/30/18’).
This here is really a smart move, as the judge already put the other trial on hold for 90 days, as the raid on Attorney Michael Cohen and his evidence are been looked at. This is a way to keep her case going and also pushing for other trials, to really glue the President within the chambers of law. Even if it get dismissed, they are clearly showing power and cleverness to pull in the President. As he cannot just say whatever, without being accountable to the law. Since he says whatever to get away with lies and deception.
Therefore, Avenatti deserves credit for this move. It would be a patch of hurt, if the damages would be paid, but the former Porn-Star are now key plaintiff against the President. She did really well hiring this lawyer. Clearly, he got game and there is nothing stopping him. That is why this suit of the President is interesting. The Mueller investigation is of larger scale and more vital to the Republic, however, this is more damaging for the President’s ego. Peace.
