FOX News reported:
President Donald Trump is seeking more than $300,000 in attorney fees after a federal judge in Los Angeles threw out adult-film actress Stormy Daniel’s defamation lawsuit on free-speech grounds earlier this month.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sued the president in April over a tweet in which he denied her claims of being threatened by a man in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 – calling it a “total con job.”
“A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!” Trump tweeted. He retweeted a side-by-side image comparing the sketch with a photo of Daniels’ husband.
Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, previously said the tweet damaged his client’s credibility by portraying her as a liar. More
The U.S. District Judge dismissed the case on grounds President Trump’s tweet was “rhetorical hyperbole,” and not defamatory as was alleged in court.

The judge also ordered Stormy to pay President Trump’s legal fees. His lawyer Charles Harder released a statement saying the President is entitled to an award of his attorney’s fees against Stormy Daniels. The amount to be awarded to President Trump would be announced at a later date, Harder said.
Now Trump’s attorneys sent a bill of $300,000 to Stormy Daniels and her lawyer Michael Avenatti on Tuesday.
It is refreshing to see our president fight back so hard. He’s been fighting every day since he took office, and I don’t foresee him slowing down anytime soon either. When he gets hit he hits back 10x harder.
