President Donald Trump has allegedly told First Lady Melania Trump everything about his alleged affair but Melania is "expecting further details to come to light" via Stormy Daniels" "60 Minutes" interview, reports "Hollywood Life'.

He said their attempts to move the case from the state court in Los Angeles where Daniels filed her claim to a federal court is because that would increase the chances the matter be decided in private arbitration, "thus hiding the truth from the public".

The second motion, filed on Mr. Trump's behalf, states that he joins Essential Consultants in seeking the change of venue and ends with the statement, "Mr. Trump intends to pursue his rights to the fullest extent permitted by the law". Daniels sued earlier this month claiming that because Trump himself never signed the "hush agreement", it is void.

Trump's name surfaced in one of two motions his legal team filed Friday in Los Angeles.

Earlier Friday, Avenatti told the Morning Joe show on MSNBC that Daniels - whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford - had been "physically threatened" by the president's handlers.

THIBAUT COURTOIS insisted he is "committed" to Chelsea - and hinted at a new deal this summer. "I will do my best for it". He said:"Obviously I played against him a lot of times and conceded goals through my legs from him before".

Attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents Daniels, said on Friday, "This is simply more of the same bullying tactics from the president and Mr. Cohen". The Wall Street Journal reported that a Trump Organization attorney was listed on confidential arbitration documents that included the restraining order against Daniels.

"I don't think there has ever been in an instance in the history of the United States where you had a sitting president who undertook a personal vendetta against a private US citizen who was merely looking for an opportunity to tell her version of events", Avenatti told MSNBC Friday night.

Avenatti has claimed the nondisclosure agreement signed by his client is invalid because Trump failed to sign it too.

Trump's team filed the motions one day after news broke that 60 Minutes was planning to run a segment featuring Clifford and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, on March 25. He added, "We are not going away, and we will not be intimidated by these threats". That lawyer said she was working in a personal capacity and not on the company's behalf. She has offered to return the $130,000 she was paid. Since the agreement stated that Daniels could be fined $1 million "for 'each breach, '" Cohen argues that she owes him $20 million. She is also asking to be allowed to publish text messages, photos and videos relating to the president, Avenatti said in a letter to Cohen.

They claim she's on the hook for at least $20 million for violating a secrecy agreement signed just before the election.
