Stormy Daniels' lawyer: This is a warning shot

Moreover, Daniels has filed her own lawsuit in California, asking the court to toss out the contract because Trump never signed it.

In January, The Wall Street Journal was first to report that Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen had paid Daniels $130,000 before the 2016 election.

An interview with former porn star Stormy Daniels is scheduled to air on CBS' "60 Minutes" Sunday evening. That payment, she says, was meant to buy her silence about the alleged affair.

Instead, she and her former lawyer struck a deal with Mr Trump's attorney Michael Cohen, according to Ms Daniels' lawsuit.

Daniels has been hit with an influx of hate on social media in regards to her affair with the president. The government watchdog group Common Cause argues that the payment was meant to influence the 2016 election by silencing Daniels and therefore was an illegal in-kind contribution to Trump's campaign.

Attorney Michael Cohen filed court documents last week that claimed each violation of her agreement carries a $1million penalty.

"Now we have a sitting US President ... who is threatening to sue a private citizen for over $20 million for talking about their relationship", Avenatti said last week.

"Not all of our evidence will be mentioned/displayed tonight - that would be foolish", Avenatti tweeted on Sunday, adding that CBS is unlikely to air the full interview recorded two weeks ago. Two days after filing a lawsuit against Trump in Los Angeles Superior Court, he tweeted a photograph of himself with Daniels and journalist Anderson Cooper with the Twitter handle @60Minutes and no further comment.

The lawyer representing the porn star suing President Donald Trump called a tweet he posted of an apparent data disc a "warning shot" to the President.

Mr Avenatti has also said that his client has received personal threats because of her allegations against Mr Trump.

"You know, at the bottom line, there's just never been a claim of - of - of harassment", Ruddy said.

Asked by 60 Minutes' Anderson Cooper why she's choosing to break her silence now, Daniels said she wants to defend herself. But she said she also has been overwhelmed by an outpouring of support.
