I think so.  It's complicated.  It might have been part of the payoff agreement.  But if they can come up with evidence that Trump was complicit, that would be grounds for impeachment. 

That seems decidedly un-libertarian to me. If She and Donald contracted with each other, even through intermediaries, and no laws were broken, it can't possibly be a crime to lie about legal contracts. You have no obligation to divulge what is in a legal contract to anyone, unless one party is suing the other for a breach.

Having affairs is a private matter.

If it is grounds for impeachment, why weren't dozens (scores) of Presidents impeached for it?

Honestly, there's a lot of dynamics surrounding the scandal that I don't really understand.   

Bottom line is, Daniels wants to spill the #metoo beans, but her hands are tied, because of the contract that she signed.  Daniels' lawyer wants to refund the $130K to Cohen (essentially nulifying the contract) so they can go forward with book deals.  That's what the talking heads are saying, anyway.

That's a very good reason for you to not talk about it.

Edit: Please don't think I want you to shut up.

Continue if it pleases you.

Why would returning the money nullify a contract?

Daniels accepted the $130k payment for keeping quiet about her sexual escapades with Trump.  At the time she made this agreement (over 10 yrs ago), She didn't know that Trump would someday become POTUS.  Now that Trump is POTUS, she stands to make millions on book deals.

If she returns the money, the contract is void, and she can publish the story.

(Of course, this would be a very embarrasing situation for Melania.  Trump's affair with Daniels happened while he was married to Melania.)

"Porn star Stormy Daniels has filed a civil lawsuit against President Donald Trump, alleging that her nondisclosure agreement (NDA) is invalid because Trump never signed it."

She's already published the story. Now Trump has to either ignore it as it being unrelated to him or he has to have his lawyer stand fast on the deal being on behalf of Trump.

So far it's a contract between David Dennison and Daniels.

Melania can decide if she's just a bought and sold piece of merchandise or a woman with rights and credibility.

Melania could start divorce procedings againt Donald but unfortunately she will likely swallowher pride like a cheap slut. After all, she married Donald!

If this story dies then we'll all know that Trump has bought Stormy off for some really big money. LOL

It's just too bad that it won't take the place of the Russia thing Trump's got himself into. That's going to have legs for the foreseeable future!

Unilaterally backing out of a contract voids the contract?

Just like people won't forget that Obama promised Putin he'd have "more flexibility after the election"?
