Adult film actress Stormy Daniels appeared on The View with her attorney Michael Avenatti earlier this morning.
An Overview of the Stormy Daniels Interview
Daniels, accompanied by Avenatti appeared on The View to discuss her alleged, former affair with President Trump between 2006 and 2007. Towards the end of last month, Daniels also appeared on CBS’ ‘60 Minutes‘ to discuss the professed relationship with the President. By the admission of Daniels, she could face a one million dollar fine for each time that she publicly discloses information about the alleged affair.
The interview began with ‘The View’ co-host Meghan McCain asking Daniels about the potential benefits of her publicly speaking out about a relationship with the President. The adult film star responded, stating that while her earnings have increased, so have her expenses.
Excerpts from her statements read as follows:

Daniels furthermore noted that she had to hire bodyguards for the protection of herself and her family, including a young daughter.
The Sketch Release of the Alleged Thug
In addition to Daniels statements that she felt “tired” and “done” with being “bullied,” she and Avenatti moreover released a sketch of a man who allegedly threatened her in a parking lot.
Daniels’ recollection of the alleged encounter reads as follows:
“He had his hands in his pockets and he looked at my daughter. I remember him saying ‘That’s a beautiful little girl; it’d be a shame if something happened to her mom. Forget about the story. Leave Mr. Trump alone.’ [Then] he turned and walked away.”
The individual in the above sketch remains unknown. However, there is a $100,000 reward for any information leading to the discovery of his identity. Daniels moreover states that the alleged threat in the parking lot happened seven years ago.
