Trump's personal lawyer wants Stormy Daniels' lawyer gagged

AP  |  Washington 

Donald Trump's wants a to stop the for porn actress from speaking to reporters and releasing information about the case to the public.

An attorney for the president's filed court papers Thursday alleging that Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, is tainting the case because he's appeared on television more than 100 times since March.

Cohen's argues Avenatti is "mainly driven by his seemingly unquenchable thirst for publicity." Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has said she had sex with Trump in 2006 when he was married. Trump has denied it.

Daniels, who is suing Trump and Cohen, is seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016

Avenatti says the request is a "complete joke.
