Stormy Daniels released a rough sketch of a man who she claims threatened her back in 2011 over releasing the story of her affair with Donald Trump.
Daniels released the sketch of the man while she was a guest on ABC’s “The View.”

Donald Trump, of course, denies the validity of her claims.
“A sketch years later about a nonexistent man,” he tweeted. “A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

The adult film star had first told the story of the man in an interview on Anderson Cooper on CBS’s “60 Minutes” in March.
“I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter. Taking, you know, the seats facing backwards in the backseat, diaper bag, you know, getting all the stuff out. And a guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,'” Daniels said.
“And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone,” she continued.
“You took it as a direct threat?” Cooper asked.
“Absolutely. I was rattled. I remember going into the workout class and my hands are shaking so much, I was afraid I was going to drop her,” she said.
Of course, after that interview was released, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed that she had “no knowledge” of the alleged incident.
“Obviously we take the safety and security of any person seriously, certainly would condemn anyone threatening any individual,” Sanders said.
