Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, received no response to a letter sent Monday to Trump's lawyer Michael D. Cohen offering to wire the money by today at 12:01 p.m., her attorney Michael Avenatti said.
News President David Rhodes' statement at a conference in Israel Tuesday was the first time CBS publicly confirmed it had interviewed Daniels, who has alleged an extramarital affair with Donald Trump before he became president.
And although Avenatti did not offer specifics, he hinted that legal action was coming.
Clifford's attorney, Michael Avenatti, said Cohen had not responded to the offer by Clifford's proposed deadline of noon on Tuesday.
"The President and Mr. Cohen have purposely ignored our settlement offer, thus doubling down on their efforts to muzzle Ms. Clifford and prevent her from telling the American people what happened".
A source told the network that Trump was told by advisers not to fight Daniels' decision to break a confidentiality agreement because it would make him look guilty - and that that's the only reason he had so far stayed quiet on the issue and hadn't tweeted about it. "The encounter between Anderson Cooper and (Clifford) was accompanied also by conversations with attorneys, documents were provided, and so we have to run all that down before it runs".
Daniels sued Trump earlier this month, claiming the nondisclosure agreement is void because Trump did not sign it.
No air date has been set for the interview. Reportedly, the two were involved in a secretive tryst, but Trump did not want news of his sexual exploits to eclipse his chances at becoming the nation's next Commander in Chief. Avenatti told Reuters it is not appropriate for Judge Elizabeth Feffer, now in Los Angeles Superior Court, to preside over a case in which the president is a defendant, because she is pursuing a federal judgeship.
