CBS will air Stormy Daniels '60 Minutes' interview: report

CBS News says it will air a recently taped interview with adult-film star Stormy Daniels on March 25, The Washington Post reports.

The news network reportedly plans to air the interview later this month, according to multiple people involved with the show. CBS sources told the Post that neither the Trump Organization nor the White House had attempted to stop the interview from airing thus far.

The news comes on the heels of a tweet from Michael Avenatti, Daniels's attorney, who said over the weekend that Trump's lawyers were "considering a challenge" to prevent the interview from airing.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, recorded the interview last week after filing a civil suit to void a nondisclosure agreement between herself and Trump.

Daniels has alleged that had an affair with Trump in 2006 and that she took a $130,000 payment in 2016 from Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, not to discuss the affair.

Trump has denied the affair, but Cohen has admitted to paying the money, which he said came from his personal equity line.

Cohen reportedly obtained a temporary restraining order against Daniels earlier this month with the aim of stopping Daniels from speaking publicly about the alleged affair.

Avenatti has vowed to fight Cohen and Trump in court, saying the nondisclosure agreement is invalid because Trump did not sign it.

“Earlier today, Mr. Cohen through his attorney, Mr. Rosen, further threatened my client in an effort to prevent her from telling the truth about what really happened," Avenatti said last week. "We do not take kindly to these threats, nor we will be intimidated."
