Threats, sex, hush money - The "yuck" factor is high on Stormy Daniels 60 minutes 

Adult film star Stormy Daniels says she was threatened to keep silent about an alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump in 2006, telling her story in a highly anticipated interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" broadcast Sunday. Daniels said she was threatened by an unidentified man in Las Vegas to keep quiet about her alleged relationship with Trump, an incident that she said happened while she was with her young daughter. She said in the interview that she had one encounter of consensual sex with the future president. Most of the interview revolved around information that has leaked out over some months; the threats that Stormy Daniels talked about are new. That alongwith Trump comparing many of his accusers to "beautiful" Ivanka Trump are Sunday night's headlines in the US. Top quotes from political pundits: "The yuck factor is high", "A porn star and the President...for God's sake!", and "What are we going to tell our kids?". Will it hurt the Trump Presidency? No. For that, it's still Robert Mueller's investigation.

Daniels has previously spoken about the affair, including in a recent post on Twitter in which she said: "Technically I didn't sleep with the POTUS 12 years ago. There was no sleeping (hehe) and he was just a goofy reality TV star."

Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, has teased the interview, posting a picture on Twitter of a DVD along with the text: "If 'a picture is worth a thousand words,' how many words is this worth????? #60minutes #pleasedenyit."

When another Twitter user said that the disc contained a video of a lie detector test Daniels had taken, Avenatti replied: "Nope. Enjoy Sunday and the days that follow..."

Daniels was paid $130,000 by Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, as part of a non-disclosure agreement that she signed shortly before the 2016 US presidential election, leading to allegations that the payment amounted to an illicit contribution to Trump's campaign.
