2016 ELECTION/MICHAEL COHEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WOMEN: “An attorney for Stormy Daniels filed a motion Wednesday [3-28-18] seeking to question President Donald Trump and his attorney under oath about a pre-election payment to the porn actress aimed at keeping her quiet about an alleged tryst with Trump. If successful, it would be the first deposition of a sitting president since Bill Clinton in 1998 had to answer questions about his conduct with women. Attorney Michael Avenatti is seeking sworn testimony from Trump and Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, about a $130,000 payment made to Daniels days before the 2016 presidential election as part of a nondisclosure agreement she is seeking to invalidate. Avenatti’s documents were filed in U.S. District Court in California. Avenatti is part of a growing list of lawyers looking to question Trump. Attorneys for a former contestant on one of Trump’s ‘Apprentice’ TV shows have said they want to depose the president as part of a defamation suit.”
