President Trump has reversed course on fighting to enforce adult film star Stormy Daniels’ 2016 nondisclosure agreement, saying in court documents Saturday that the deal was never valid to begin with. Trump’s attorney, Charles Harder, wrote that since Trump himself never signed the deal, Daniels’ “assertion that the Settlement Agreement was never formed, or in the alternative, should be rescinded” would no longer be contested in court. Harder urged Daniels to “immediately dismiss” the president from her lawsuit seeking to void the agreement. The move came after Trump’s former lawyer and longtime fixer Michael Cohen sought to invalidate the 2016 agreement a day earlier, saying Daniels should return the $130,000 she received on the eve of the presidential election to remain silent about her alleged affair with Trump. The invalidation of the agreement is seen by some as a way to thwart Daniels' efforts to force Trump to testify under oath about the $130,000 payment.
