CBS News will air a recently-taped interview with adult film star Stephanie Cliffords, aka Stormy Daniels, on March 25, according to a report in The Washington Post.
From The Hill: The news network reportedly plans to air the interview later this month, according to multiple people involved with the show. CBS sources told the Post that neither the Trump Organization nor the White House had attempted to stop the interview from airing thus far.
The news comes on the heels of a tweet from Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney, who said over the weekend that Trump’s lawyers were “considering a challenge” to prevent the interview from airing.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Cliffords, recorded the interview last week after filing a civil suit to void a nondisclosure agreement between herself and [President Donald] Trump.
Cliffords was allegedly involved in a 2006 affair with the Trump, and took a $130,000 payment in 2016 from Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, to keep the affair private.
Trump has denied the affair, but Cohen admitted to paying the money.
Cohen reportedly obtained a temporary restraining order against Cliffords earlier this month with the aim of stopping Cliffords from speaking publicly about the alleged affair.
Avenatti has vowed to fight Cohen and Trump in court, saying the nondisclosure agreement is invalid because Trump did not sign it.
