“60 Minutes” to Air Interview with Stormy Daniels over Alleged Trump Affair

HeadlineMar 12, 2018
H13 stormy 60 minutes

Meanwhile, “60 Minutes” is moving forward with plans to air an interview with adult film star Stephanie Clifford—also known as Stormy Daniels—about an alleged affair she had with Trump in 2006 and '07. Daniels agreed to the interview with host Anderson Cooper despite an arbiter's ruling last week that she’s barred from talking about her relationship with Trump. Just weeks before the 2016 election, Daniels accepted a $130,000 payout from Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in exchange for a nondisclosure agreement. The Wall Street Journal reports the payoff could amount to a violation of federal election law. Daniels has sued to overturn the nondisclosure agreement, calling the deal invalid.
