When asked in RTL Late Night with Twan Huys if she had enough evidence to eliminate Trump from the office, she replied: "Yes, there are things that I know, and I would say it's a 50-50 shot at this point. . Which is pretty scary if you're the president.

Daniels refused to broaden his comments due to ongoing legal action and did not explain his theory about how he would end the presidency, although he said Trump would not resign because "he's too arrogant."
The 39-year-old singer has become a beloved child of opponents of the president, while demanding to annul a 2016 non-disclosure agreement that prevents her from talking about her alleged love affair with Trump in 2006.
Daniels, through his lawyer Michael Avenatti, also sued Trump for defamation. The president denies having sex with Daniels and is challenging the lawsuits.
She said her decision to confront Trump in public was a reaction to the intimidation she had received from him and her associates.
"I really got tired of being bullied and moved forward without thinking how great this was going to be," he said. "Basically I was just saying, to quote my attorney Michael Avenatti, 'Basta', you know, enough. 'You leave me alone or I'll tell you my truth.'
"Then I started to feel in danger and it's all about hiding in plain sight, if I'm public, they can not do anything to me because everyone would know it was them."

The interview contained his first detailed public comments since former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty in federal court last month to evading taxes and violating campaign finance laws.
This included the admission that he had paid Daniels $ 130,000 in silent money at Trump's instructions for the purpose of influencing the election.
Daniels, who also goes by the name of Stephanie Clifford, said the news was the best day of her life.
"I opened a bottle of wine because I was in Italy, Champagne gives me a headache, so I was drinking wine, which – normally I'm not a heavy drinker," he said.
"But the first phone call I received was from one of my bodyguards, Travis, and he was crying and I was crying." And it was just at this moment that he said, "Everyone knows you're not a liar." ; & # 39;
"The only thing that really bothered me was that people said I lied," he added.
On Friday, Essential Consultants, Cohen's company, offered to rescind the secret money deal and dropped plans for its threatened $ 20 million lawsuit against Daniels for alleged violation of the deal.

Avenatti previously stated that there are "multiple tapes" of the president in his possession, which increases the possibility that he has one of the nights that Daniels shared with Trump.
When Huys asked if there was a video tape of the night, Daniels replied that he "could not comment on anything".
When pressed on the matter, he adds: "Michael Avenatti has other clients who have information that I do not know what he knows and does not know about other clients." As we all know, it's not right for him to tell me & # 39;
Although she insists on not having "remorse" for her legal battle, Daniels admits that sometimes she feels threatened.
"People show up, and even if it's for the right reasons, still a large group of people, even their fans, can be quite dangerous," he said. "I travel with bodyguards and those things now and the mere fact of having them in some way deters people from trying anything."
She also spoke about her recent divorce from her three-year-old husband, Glendon Crain. "The stress of all this, he did not sign up for that, and I totally understand where he comes from," he said.
But Daniels is on the defensive regarding other criticisms of his family life, particularly the tricks of social media trolls that he should spend more time caring for his seven-year-old daughter.
"That's very hurtful … the bigger picture of that is, yes, it could have given him a normal, happy and traditional home life for the next one or two years, but what if things continue with Trump in the White House? And he does something really stupid and press that red button?
Despite the praise she received from some people for confronting a powerful man like Trump, Daniels said she did not see herself as a "super feminist."
"I'm just human and I was just trying to do the right thing," he said. "I support women, I think we should treat each other equally, all those things, but I did not propose to try to change the vision of women."

Daniels has his next court hearing scheduled for Monday, after it was delayed due to an ongoing federal case against Cohen.
An attorney for Cohen's Essential Consultants said the company wants Daniels to pay the $ 130,000 they paid him as part of the confidentiality agreement, which was signed days before the 2016 presidential election, according to a letter included in a court filing. Friday night.
The development could kill Avenatti's plan to try to force the president to testify under oath, if the agreement is terminated and a judge accepts to dismiss the case.
In addition to the offer to nullify the agreement, Essential Consultants also agreed to reject its plan to fight Daniels in private arbitration and will not pursue a lawsuit against him, a company lawyer said in a letter to Daniels' lawyer. . Cohen has said that Daniels could owe $ 20 million for violating the agreement.
Avenatti said Friday's development is "a trick by Michael Cohen trying to fix it so that Donald Trump is not deposed."
Avenatti said he did not have to accept the offer and that he would not settle the case "without the depositions," which he said would include Trump.
