A federal judge on Tuesday ordered porn star Stormy Daniels to pay President Donald Trump more than $292,000 in attorneys’ fees and another $1,000 in sanctions in connection with her dismissed defamation suit against Trump.

Trump underreported payments to Cohen in disclosures

Daniels whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had sex with Trump in 2006, several months after first lady Melania Trump gave birth to her son with the president. The White House has denied the affair happened.

In October 2016, Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her agreement to keep quiet about her claims of an affair.

Cohen has said he made that payment at the direction of Trump, who at the time was locked into a close race for the White House with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Daniels earlier this year sued Trump and Cohen, seeking to void the non-disclosure agreement.

She later sued Trump for defamation, claiming he smeared her on Twitter after she gave a police sketch artist a description of a man who, Daniels said, had who warned her in a Las Vegas parking lot to keep quiet about Trump.

“A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!” Trump wrote in his tweet.

Otero dismissed Daniels’ defamation case, but not her NDA-related lawsuit, in October.

The judge said that Trump’s tweet was “rhetorical hyperbole,” and was protected by the First Amendment.

  6. One of my all time special quotes appears very fitting here “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. It is the accumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgments that leads us to either fortune or failure.”–Jim Rohn
