Stormy Daniels meets with Manhattan prosecutors amid Trump investigation

Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who claims to have had an affair with former President Donald Trump, met on Wednesday with investigators from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, who are investigating an alleged ‘silent’ payment made to her paid on behalf of Trump.

Clark Brewster, an attorney for Daniels, said the meeting took place on Wednesday and came at the request of prosecutors.

“Stormy answered questions and agreed to make himself available as a witness, or for further investigation if needed,” Brewster said. writing on Twitter.

The meeting took place over Zoom, according to a source familiar with the arrangement.

In its own TweeterDaniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, thanked her attorney for “helping me in our ongoing fight for truth and justice.”

In the final days of the 2016 presidential campaign, Michael Cohen, then a lawyer for former President Donald Trump, paid Daniels $130,000 for his silence on the alleged affair. Cohen went to jail for campaign finance violations stemming from the payment to Daniels, and testified a second time Wednesday before a grand jury investigating the case.

Trump denied having sex with Daniels and said he did nothing wrong. He called the case a “political witch hunt” and “an old and chastised case, which was dismissed by all the prosecutor’s offices”.

Cohen’s testimony came about a week after the Manhattan district attorney invited Trump to appear before the grand jury, an offer he will not accept, according to his attorney Joseph Tacopina. An invitation to testify often precedes an indictment in New York.

“We, and most election law experts, believe that (the case) has absolutely no legal basis,” Tacopina said Monday.
