Trump’s Personal Lawyers Try to Stop “60 Minutes” from Airing Stormy Daniels Interview

Trump’s personal lawyers are trying to stop “60 Minutes” from airing its interview with adult film star Stormy Daniels about her alleged affair with Donald Trump in 2006 and 2007. The interview is set to air on March 18. On Monday, Daniels offered to return a $130,000 “hush money” payment she received from Trump’s personal lawyer only days before the 2016 election. Multiple news outlets, including The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post, say this payment could have violated federal election law. Daniels has sued to overturn the nondisclosure agreement, calling the deal invalid.
