Melania Trump's Spokeswoman Says Rudy Giuliani Doesn't Speak for the First Lady

The 16-page lawsuit, obtained first by NBC News, lays out a lengthy conspiracy against Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, and includes text messages between her former attorney Keith Davidson and Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney. After initially denying it, both Clifford and Trump have come clean to different degrees about the less than one-nighter they had in 2006 and the $130,000 the actress was paid just before the 2016 election to basically keep quiet.

McDougal claimed Davidson colluded with Cohen and pressured her into a deal with A.M.I., the parent company of The National Enquirer.

An attorney for Michael Cohen, Brent Blakely, told ABC News in a statement that Daniels' latest lawsuit "appears to be just another one of her publicity stunts to attract media attention to herself, her controversial lawyer, and her ongoing tour of adult entertainment establishments".

When Davidson responded that Daniels would be unavailable that day but that he was working on making her available to "commit for tomorrow", Cohen replied, "It's really important".

Avenatti said the allegations in the countersuit were "frivolous claims".

"Davidson never consented to the recording of any phone calls he had with Cohen as he believe the calls were confidential", the suit states, citing California law that prohibits the taping of phone calls without expressed consent from all parties.

"His most recent comments regarding my client, who passed a lie detector test and who the American people believe, are disgusting and a disgrace, " Avenatti said.

Adult film star Stormy Daniels brought her act to Raleigh Wednesday night.

"I don't believe Stormy Daniels".

It's the first legal action that Davidson has taken against Daniels, Avenatti, and Cohen.

But Thursday, the first lady's spokesperson forcefully swatted back.

"Believing this story to be detrimental to his own interests or those of his client, Mr Cohen immediately colluded with Mr Davidson in an attempt to use and manipulate Ms Clifford in a manner created to benefit Mr Cohen and Mr Trump", according to the suit. The White House and Cohen have denied the affair ever occurred. "That's demeaning to women, the way I was brought up and the way I always believed the feminist movement has", Giuliani said. "We look forward to defeating the lawsuit in court", said Brent Blakely, Cohen's attorney. "He is an embarrassment to the profession and seems to have forgotten what the attorney-client privilege is all about".
