Stormy Daniels: The Perfect Storm


Stormy Daniels interview with Anderson Cooper.

Adult film star, Stormy Daniels, has come forward revealing that she had a sexual relationship with President Donald Trump. In a ’60 Minutes’ interview, Daniels explained the affair in detail and revealed a man confronted her in a parking lot. Daniels recounted the confrontation, explaining that the man instructed her to “’Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.’” And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, “’That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom’” and then he was gone.”

The Trump administration has denied the relationship and ever threatening Daniels. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen payed Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money only a few days prior to the 2016 election. Daniels remained quiet about the affair until a news outlet leaked the story and she felt personally obligated to clarify her story. According to Trump’s lawyer, Daniels has broken the hush agreement twenty times.

The affair has put the Trump administration under fire, as the payment Cohen made is believed to have violated campaign-finance laws. Daniels’ lawyer has recently added this to the lawsuit against the President along with arguing that the hush agreement itself is void because Trump did not sign it. It is unclear if President Trump will confront the allegations directly, but, as Daniel’s story becomes more publicized, it seems likely he will address the affair soon.
