CBS set to air Stormy Daniels interview Sunday night on '60 Minutes'

Stormy Daniels, the adult-film star who claims that she had an affair with Donald Trump more than a decade ago, will speak publicly about the alleged relationship for the first time during an interview with Anderson Cooper on "60 Minutes" on Sunday.

She continued, "And a guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone".

Avenatti, who declined an interview request Sunday with USA TODAY, has hinted repeatedly that Daniels may have evidence of the alleged affair with Trump.

After the Wall Street Journal broke the news in January of the payment to Daniels, In Touch magazine published the interview, which contained salacious details of the alleged tryst between the porn actress and Trump, who met in 2006 at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, Nev. But she said she also has been overwhelmed by an outpouring of support. "I thought I was the only one". In the pre-taped interview, CBS says Daniels talks to Cooper about the relationship she says lasted from 2006 and 2007.

Avenatti has been seeking to build anticipation for the "60 Minutes" interview with constant television appearances and enigmatic tweets. Daniels accepted the money in return for signing a confidentiality agreement.

In her lawsuit filed earlier this month, she argues that the agreement she signed - which requires that she stay silent on matters related to Trump and take any dispute to secret arbitration - is null and void because Trump did not actually sign the document.

"This is politically motivated to hurt and embarrass him in some way", Ruddy said, during the interview on ABC's This Week.

The "60 Minutes" broadcast comes just 72 hours after former Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal spoke to CNN about her own alleged affair with now-President Trump.

Last year during spring break, Melania and Barron stayed in Mar-a-Lago, but they had yet to follow the president to Washington, D.C., opting to wait to make the trek to after he finished his school year in New York City. That payment, she says, was meant to buy her silence about the alleged affair.

The President's longtime attorney has accused Daniels of violating a nondisclosure agreement by talking about the alleged affair.
