Also, Tampa shock jock Bubba The Love Sponge Clem on Friday recalled a 2007 interview with Daniels in which she described an affair with an unnamed married man. CNN has the rundown, which includes Daniels writing down the name.

The alleged affair has become the latest distraction for Trump as he tries to advance his trade agenda and prepares for a proposed meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Last week, Daniels filed a civil suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court to have a nondisclosure agreement she reached with President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen in October ruled invalid because it was signed only by Daniels and Cohen, not by the president himself.

We're told it was then discussed that Trump's camp wanted Stormy to sign a new statement because "the press had started to pick up the story, and the announcement of her being on Kimmel made it even bigger".

Regardless of whether Cohen accepts Clifford's offer, the money is the subject of a complaint by the watchdog group Common Cause to the Federal Election Commission.

Clifford said Monday that she has offered to repay the money as long as she can speak openly about the situation. Avenatti set a deadline of Tuesday for Cohen to respond. She taped an interview with CBS News' "60 Minutes" program last week that has yet to be broadcast. However, questions have arisen about the lack of Trump's signature on the agreement.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a briefing last week that Trump had won an arbitration proceeding against Clifford. Reportedly, the two were involved in a secretive tryst, but Trump did not want news of his sexual exploits to eclipse his chances at becoming the nation's next Commander in Chief. Her account on the show matches others she gave in a 2011 interview with In Touch Magazine and in a nondisclosure agreement she signed regarding the alleged affair. Avenatti told CNN over the weekend that at least 10 people had offered to pay the penalty if she would discuss the alleged affair.
