Stormy Daniels arrested at OH strip club, lawyer says

Michael Avenatti Says Stormy Daniels Was Arrested While Performing at a Strip Club: ‘This Was a Setup’

Stormy Daniels, the porn star at the center of a political storm involving President Trump, has been arrested, her lawyer says. "We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti said on Twitter.

Avenatti says during the performance, some patrons touched her in a "non-sexual" way.

Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told followers on Twitter it was the: "same act she has performed across the nation at almost a hundred clubs".

"This was a setup & politically motivated".

Avenatti said Daniels was arrested during a sting operation.

He followed up with this tweet detailing her arrest.

Oil falls after Trump threatens to escalate trade war
President Donald Trump threatened to levy new tariffs on China and Libya announced the reopening of key oil export terminals. Lower oil prices are particularly important to US consumers in the summer months when driving reaches its heaviest.

A defamation lawsuit was also filed in April, alleging the President tried to tarnish her reputation and credibility by dismissing her claim a man threatened her in 2011, when she was ready to go public about her alleged affair with Trump.

An Ohio law known as the Community Defense Act prohibits anyone who isn't a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.

Daniels was scheduled to appear at the Sirens strip club on Wednesday and Thursday nights, the club's website says.

He said he expected his client to be released on bail and that she would be charged with a misdemeanor for allowing touching.

While Cohen's carefully worded statement said the Trump Organization and campaign weren't involved in the payout, it conspicuously did not rule out Trump's involvement. She's suing Trump and his former longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement that she signed days before the 2016 presidential election.

Trump forcefully denied the affair.
