Earlier, a person familiar with the matter had said Monday's originally scheduled interview was in preparation for a possible grand jury appearance. The person wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

That individual had said Daniels also turned over documents in response to a subpoena concerning the $130,000 she was paid when she signed a confidentiality agreement days before the 2016 presidential election.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has said she had sex with Trump in 2006 when he was married. Trump has denied it.

She's suing Trump and his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement.
