Stormy arrested in 'politically motivated setup'

Stormy arrested in politically motivated setup

Washington DC: Adult film star Stormy Daniels, locked in a court battle with President Donald Trump over their alleged affair, has been arrested while performing at a strip club in what her lawyer described as a "politically motivated" setup.

Daniels was arrested at a club in Columbus, Ohio on Wednesday while performing an act she has done at nearly 100 strip clubs across America, Michael Avenatti wrote on Twitter. He said Daniels was arrested for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her in a non-sexual way while on stage.

"This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges," Avenatti wrote.

"They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities!!!," he added.

Avenatti said in a later tweet that he expects Daniels to be released on bail "shortly" and charged with a misdemeanor for "touching." "We will vehemently contest all charges," he wrote.

Daniels - real name Stephanie Clifford - is suing Trump and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen to nullify a 2016 non-disclosure agreement preventing her from speaking out about the affair she says she had with Trump in 2006.

Just days before the 2016 election, Cohen paid Daniels USD 130,000 in exchange for her silence.

She is hoping to have the non-disclosure agreement thrown out on the grounds that it is not valid because Trump never

signed it.
