Gawker-Killing Lawyer Charles Harder Repping Trump in Stormy Daniels Case

A team of lawyers representing President Trump requested on Friday that a suit filed by an attorney representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels be moved from state court to federal court in California. Included in the group, in addition to long-time counsel Michael Cohen, is Charles Harder, best-known for representing Hulk Hogan in a case that resulted in the bankruptcy of news outlet Gawker. Harder has also briefly represented Harvey Weinstein and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner in recent instances.
