Judge Denies Stormy Daniels' Motion to Depose President Trump
A judge ruled Thursday that attorneys for Stormy Daniels cannot fast-track a deposition of President Trump over the porn star's claims that she had a sexual relationship with him.
Attorney Michael Avenatti asked a federal judge for an expedited trial and deposition of Trump and his attorney Michael Cohen.
On "Outnumbered Overtime," Fox News White House correspondent Kevin Corke said the judge is not allowing the case to be fast-tracked, but a deposition could happen down the line.
Judge James Otero wrote in his ruling: "The parties are advised that the instant litigation is not the most important matter on the Court's docket. Requests for expedited proceedings, hearings, and discovery not clearly supported by the record and law are discouraged."
Daniels says she had a one-night affair with Trump in 2006 and was threatened to keep quiet about the tryst during the presidential campaign.
Daniels has also said she was paid $130,000 by Cohen in exchange for her silence about the alleged affair. Daniels has sued Trump and Cohen, arguing the agreement is invalid because Trump never signed it.
Cohen -- who has denied that Trump had an affair with Daniels -- has said he paid the $130,000 out of his own pocket, and that neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Daniels and he was not reimbursed for the payment.
Legal analysts have said the payment could become part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, since it could be viewed as an illegal donation to the campaign.
