Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is now challenging the legitimacy of that agreement because it was never signed by Trump.

McDougal recently reached a settlement with the parent company of The National Enquirer, with whom she signed a so-called “catch and kill” deal.

Cohen, meanwhile, has faced a litany of legal troubles. Last month, his home, office and hotel room were raided by the FBI, with records of the payment to Daniels among the materials seized. Trump’s financial disclosure form, released Wednesday, included his repayment to Cohen for the $130,000 deal negotiated with Daniels. After the form was published, the Office of Government Ethics referred the payment to the Department of Justice, stating that it should have been included in the previous year’s disclosure.

Following his interview Thursday, Avenatti tweeted that “Big problems lie ahead for Mr. Cohen and Mr. Trump.”
