(CNBC) Porn star Stormy Daniels' ex-lawyer Keith Davidson sued President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen, saying Cohen secretly and illegally recorded phone calls with him.
Davidson also filed a counterclaim against Daniels and her current lawyer Michael Avenatti, accusing them of defaming him.
Davidson's allegations came in response to a lawsuit that Daniels filed Wednesday against him and Cohen in California federal court.
