Politico: Stormy Daniels says she felt threatened to remain silent about Trump affair

March 25, 2018

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels said she was physically threatened after speaking out about her alleged sexual relationship with Donald Trump and feared legal retribution if she didn’t keep silent.

“They made it sound like I had no choice,” Daniels told Anderson Cooper in a interview Sunday night on “60 Minutes,” saying she had previously denied the relationship out of fear and under pressure from a now-former attorney. “The exact sentence used was, ‘They can make your life hell in many different ways.”
