Texas officials are investigating the notary who officiated the nondisclosure agreement signed by Stormy Daniels after it was revealed that the notary did not sign or date the agreement, the Dallas Morning News reported Monday.
Texas notaries are required to sign and date agreements, as well as provide a certificate verifying those who sign documents.
However, Erica Jackson, the notary on the Daniels’ nondisclosure agreement, is now facing an investigation after she failed to do all three for the document. Jackson’s stamp is on the document.
“Attaching your seal to a document without a notarial certificate constitutes good cause for the secretary of state to take action against your notary commission," a Texas official said in a letter to Jackson, sent last week.
Jackson told the News on Friday that she did not recall the agreement and declined an interview with the newspaper.
The News also could not reach Daniels’ attorney for comment.
Texas secretary of state spokesman Sam Taylor told the News that the office was solely investigating “whether or not the individual complies with his or her duties as a notary public in the state of Texas.’’
It’s unclear if Jackson's missing signature or lack of certificate would impact the agreement.
Daniels filed a lawsuit against President Trump last week, claiming that the nondisclosure agreement she signed to not discuss their alleged affair is void because Trump did not sign the document.
The New York Times also reported Monday that the adult film star has offered to reimburse Trump the $130,000 she received from his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in order for her to speak publicly about the alleged affair.
