Attorney Gloria AllredGloria Rachel AllredWhy the Summer Zervos case might be the most dangerous for Trump Gloria Allred withdraws from Summer Zervos case against Trump The Memo: Women create new legal woes for Trump MORE confirmed to The Hill that her client, Angel Ryan, is named in Daniels’s nondisclosure agreement (NDA) about the affair. Ryan, whose stage name is Jessica Drake, is listed as one of four people Daniels told about the affair prior to signing the nondisclosure agreement.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday alleging that the NDA is void because Trump never signed it and his attorney, Michael Cohen, has spoken about it publicly.

Cohen acknowledged last month that he paid Daniels $130,000 in October 2016, but did not specify what the payment was for and denied it violated campaign finance laws.

CNN first reported that Drake is the woman named in the lawsuit.

Ryan came forward a couple weeks before the 2016 election to accuse Trump of kissing her without permission roughly a decade earlier. She spoke at a press conference with Allred, and detailed her meeting Trump at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in 2006, where Daniels is also reported to have interacted with the president. 

Drake said she and two friends joined Trump in his penthouse suite, where he kissed each of them on the lips without asking.

She left the room about a half hour later, and said Trump or someone calling on his behalf called offering her $10,000 to return. 

Trump’s campaign called the claims “totally false and ridiculous.”

More than a dozen women have accused the president of sexual misconduct. The White House and the president have denied each claim.
