Adult Film Star Stormy Daniels Arrested Lawyer Claims'Set-Up

Stormy Daniels, the adult entertainer who is suing President Trump, was arrested at an OH strip club for allegedly letting patrons touch her on stage, which is a violation of state law.

Following a performance at the Columbus strip club, called Sirens, Wednesday night, Daniels was approached by multiple undercover officers informing her that she would be arrested for allowing the patron to touch her, Avenatti said in an interview with The Washington Post. In May, Trump said Daniels was paid to stop "false and extortionist accusations" she made about a sexual encounter with him.

Mr Avenatti wrote: "This was a setup & politically motivated". He added: "It reeks of desperation". He intends to fight the charges.

The high-powered attorney claims the arrest was "part of a sting" based on a "puritan law" that says there is absolutely no touching in strip clubs in Columbus. "There has to be higher priorities!"

China vows to hit back over new US tariffs
The first USA tariff list focused on Chinese industrial products, an attempt to reduce the direct impact on American consumers. China gave no details, but it has plenty of options to retaliate that could extend beyond additional tariffs on USA imports.

Early Thursday she remained in custody awaiting a determination of bail, Avenatti said. He was married to Melania Trump at the time and has denied Daniel's claim.

Although Stormy was touched in a "non-sexual" way, the OH law prohibits anyone who isn't a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer. A person who answered the phone at the club declined to comment.

Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, concedes the patrons did indeed touch his client but in a "non-sexual way". He wrote that she was expected to be charged with a misdemeanor "for allowing 'touching'".

While Cohen's carefully worded statement said the Trump Organization and campaign weren't involved in the payout, it conspicuously did not rule out Trump's involvement.
