President Trump is demanding a judge toss out Stormy Daniels’s defamation suit against him claiming he is protected by free speech, DailyMail.com can reveal.
In a motion to dismiss filed on Monday, the president argues that his April 2018 tweet, in which he branded Daniels a liar after she alleged she was threatened by man on his behalf, is his ‘protected opinion.’
He has also claimed that the porn star, 39, has not suffered any damages from his comments and that she has actually ‘capitalized’ on the dispute.

In a statement to DailyMail.com, Daniels’s attorney Michael Avenatti called the motion ‘as baseless as Trump’s comments about Senator McCain.’
The suit states: ‘Politicians, in the course of public debate, are entitled to enter the debate and express their beliefs, including their disbeliefs, of the claims of their adversaries.’
The documents go on to say that Trump’s comments about Daniels are no different to when he has ‘expressed his opinions regarding multiple adversaries, sometimes referring to his opponents by colorful names such as “Lyin’ Ted” and “Crooked Hillary.”‘
