The Trump White House is toiling hard to block all avenues for porn star Stormy Daniels from talking on the top rated ‘CBS 60 minutes’ show Sunday, March 25 as news came in that Daniels passed a lie detector test in 2011 about her alleged affair with Trump. Michael Avenatti, lawyer for Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has tweeted a picture of himself, Clifford and CBS interviewer Anderson Cooper in preparation for Sunday prime time. There's still no official date for the CBS 60 minutes with Stormy even as a Playboy model Karen McDougal is suing today to break her silence on Trump. Legal experts on TV are saying this case imperils Trump in a far greater way than Stormy's. Reason is that McDougal claims that she was hoping to write and share her story and was misled by Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen into silence. So, why is Micheal Cohen involved in hush agreements with so many women who are gunning for Trump and why is Trump scared are among the top talking points across panels Tuesday.

Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, stars in and directs pornographic films. She is suing Donald Trump to dissolve a “hush agreement,” which she signed on October 28, 2016, about an affair she says she had with him in 2006, shortly after Trump's wife gave birth to their son Barron. Trump's legal challenges mount as a Wall Street Journal report out Tuesday says Daniels passed a lie detector test in 2011.

Might Trump stop the Stormy interview from airing?
