Under a legal doctrine called diversity jurisdiction, federal courts are empowered to hear civil cases where the parties are residents of separate states and the amount of money at issue exceeds $75,000.

In the lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles, Mr Avenatti claims Mr Trump never signed the non-disclosure agreement that his lawyer made with Ms Clifford, claiming that would make it null and void, and making public the agreement and related documents.

She argues the "hush agreement" she executed with Cohen in October 2016 is invalid, leaving her at liberty to publicly discuss her alleged relationship with Trump. The president accused Daniels in court papers filed Friday that she had repeatedly violated the non-disclosure agreement.

Trump's reason for asking that the case be moved probably concerns the Federal Arbitration Act, which makes arbitration the preferred forum for resolving many kinds of disputes.

Attorney Charles Harder - best known for representing Hulk Hogan in his lawsuit against Gawker, which resulted in its bankruptcy - is handling the case on the President's behalf.

The moves by the Trump legal team came just a day after it was reported that CBS's "60 Minutes" interview with Clifford and her attorney will air March 25. Mr. Trump's representatives have denied the allegations that he had an affair with Ms. Clifford.

Avenatti responded late Friday that the president was engaging in "bullying tactics" aimed at moving the case "behind closed doors, outside of public view and scrutiny". He is seeking $20 million in damages.

Saudi Arabia's crown prince: If Iran develops nuclear bomb, so will we
Not owning to any genocidal proclivity (as he must know Hitler's name would invoke), but because of what he views as Khamenei's desire "to expand", he told CBS .

He then added: "The fact that a sitting president is pursuing over $20M in bogus "damages" against a private citizen, who is only trying to tell the public what really happened, is remarkable".

"We are not going away and we will not be intimidated by these threats".

Clifford and her lawyer have drawn intense news coverage since she filed her suit.

Earlier Friday, Avenatti told the Morning Joe show on MSNBC that Daniels - whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford - had been "physically threatened" by the president's handlers.

The White House has sought to distance Trump from the Clifford dispute, while Avenatti has been highlighting ties between the president and the matter.

She is seeking help through an online fundraiser to help pay off the legal fee against Trump to return the six-figure payment. That lawyer said she was working in a personal capacity and not on the company's behalf. "Donald insists he has told her every detail of what allegedly went down between himself and Stormy, but Melania is expecting further details to come to light", claimed the source.
