Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who says she had an "intimate" relationship with President Donald Trump in 2006 and 2007, offered Monday to give back the $130,000 she was paid for her silence so she can speak freely about Trump and release any text messages, photos and videos she might have, NBC News reported.
Daniels sent a letter with the offer to Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who brokered a nondisclosure agreement before the election that she now claims is void, and to a lawyer who said he is representing Cohen and a company Cohen formed in connection with the agreement and the payment sent to Clifford in October 2017.
The White House has denied Trump had an affair with Clifford, and Cohen obtained a temporary restraining order barring Clifford from disclosing "confidential information" related to the agreement.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, says in the letter that the money would be wired to an account designated by Trump by Friday, though the offer is only open until noon Tuesday.
"This has never been about the money," said Michael Avenatti, Cliford's lawyer.
