Trump seeks more than $300K in attorney's fees from Stormy Daniels

- President Donald Trump is seeking more than $300,000 in attorney fees after a federal judge in Los Angeles threw out adult-film actress Stormy Daniel's defamation lawsuit on free-speech grounds earlier this month.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sued the president in April over a tweet in which he denied her claims of being threatened by a man in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 – calling it a "total con job."

"A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!" Trump tweeted. He retweeted a side-by-side image comparing the sketch with a photo of Daniels' husband.

Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, previously said the tweet damaged his client's credibility by portraying her as a liar.
