Anderson Cooper sat down with the former porn star to talk about the biggest "hush agreement" in history that could mean huge legal and political implications for the president.
Trump has denied having an affair with Daniels, according to his spokesman. Trump's lawyers are now allegedly threatening Daniel's with financial ruin by forcing her to pay $1 million every time she violates her agreement to stay quiet. That did not stop her from talking with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes.
Trump's attorney Michael Cohen denies ever threatening Daniels. They payment made to Daniel's is now what is being scrutinized by the Justice Department and the Federal Election Commission, alleging that it was an illegal campaign contribution.
What makes this dispute more than just a high-profile tabloid scandal is that her silence was purchased just days before the presidential election and that Cohen himself was the one that used $130, 000 of his own money to pay Daniels. Cohen says the money was not a campaign contribution.
