Adult film actress Stormy Daniels claimed Wednesday that attorney Michael Aventatti sued President Trump for defamation without her approval and launched another fundraising campaign "without my permission or even my knowledge … and attributing to me the words that I he never wrote or said. "
Daniels said in the Daily Beast's statement that "Aventata was in many ways a great advocate," but she added, "in other ways, Michael did not treat me with respect and respect that the lawyer should show to the client."
"For months, I asked Michael Avenati to give me accounting information about the fund donated by my fans so generously for my security and legal protection," Daniels said. "He has ignored these requests on several occasions. I asked again a few days ago to tell me how the money is spent and how much remains.
"Instead of responding to me … Michael started another campaign to raise money in my name. I found out about it on Twitter," added Daniels, who also said she had not yet decided whether Aventatti would continue to represent her .
Avenatti responded by saying Fox News: "I have always been the greatest Stormy champion, I personally sacrificed a huge amount of money, time and energy to help her because I believe in her. I've always been an open book with Stormy about with all aspects of her cases and she knows it. You just have to look at her numerous previous interviews, in which she says we are talking multiple times and communicating on our cases every day.

"The Stormy Retention Agreement was signed in February, provided it will pay me $ 100.00 and that all and all other monetary contributions through the statutory fund will go according to my legal fees and expenses," Avenatti continued. "Instead, the vast majority of money was triggered by its security costs and similar costs. The latest campaign was just refreshing the previous campaign, designed to help cover the costs of Stormy."
An appeal to raise funds on the CrowdJustice website increased from $ 4,785 in the evening. It appears that the site for the collection of funds has been seized after Daily Beast has released Daniel's statement. The site reported that earlier this year, more than $ 580,000 was raised for Daniels' expenses.
Last month, the federal judge in Los Angeles issued Daniel's lawsuit against the president, which originated in an April tweet in which Trump dismissed his claims that he was threatened by a man at a parking lot in Las Vegas in 2011, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford , claims Daniels said he threatened him for reporting the alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006. Trump has denied the affair several times.
As part of his decision in a defamation case, US Judge S. James Otero ordered Daniels to pay for Trump, estimated by lawyers' attorneys at $ 350,000.

Daniels initially sued Trump to cancel the confidentiality agreement she signed a few days before the presidential election in 2016, preventing her from discussing a sexual encounter with which she said he had a trumpeter's years before running for the president. The confidentiality agreement includes a payment of $ 130,000 to Daniels from Trump, then personal lawyer Michael Cohen. Last August, Cohen admitted to paying Daniels and another woman Karen McDougal "in the direction" of the then candidate Trump, contrary to the Federal Law on Campaign Financing.
