    US porn actress Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels, is currently suing President Donald Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen over the non-disclosure deal which was ostensibly clinched to hush up the fact of an alleged affair between Daniels and Trump in 2006.

    Stormy Daniels has been arrested in a strip club for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while performing at a strip club in Ohio, according to Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti.

    In a spate of tweets, he described the arrest as "a setup and politically motivated move" which he said "reeks of desperation."

    He expressed hope that she will be released on bail "shortly," urging police to have "higher priorities" than conducting a sting operation to detain Daniels.

    "We will vehemently contest all charges," Avenatti emphasized.

    Twitter netizens have greeted the news with sarcasm, with some calling Daniels' arrest "weird" and others sharing Avenatti's view that the detention was politically motivated.

    On January 12, 2018, The Wall Street Journal reported that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in October 2016, a month before the 2016 presidential election, to stop her from discussing the affair she allegedly had with Trump. The White House vociferously rejects the allegations.
