>> Charges for porn star Stormy Daniels, were dropped on Thursday following her arrest in a strip club, in what her lawyer calls a setup. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was accused of touching three customers, who were undercover detectives. Avenatti called the arrest politically motivated.>> Well I have reason to believe that it was politically motivated.

There's no question that these officers were undercover at that strip club. They knew that my client was gonna be performing there. And I find this to be a complete waste of resources. I can't imagine that there's nothing better that law enforcement has to do there than stake out a strip club and check to see if patrons are touching Stormy Daniels.

I find the whole thing to be ridiculous.>> Daniels says she had sex with Trump in 2006, and that the President's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000 before his election to keep it secret. In May, Trump, who has denied the affair, said Daniels was paid to stop false and extortionist accusations.
00:01:03
>> My attorney and I are committed to making sure that everyone finds out the truth and the facts of what happened, and I give my word that we will not rest until that happens.>> Daniels has since filed two lawsuits against Trump, one to get out of a non-disclosure agreement, and another for defamation.

Even though the charges were dropped Avenatti said Daniels next performance at the club scheduled for Thursday night had been cancelled.
