Stormy Daniels has been a major topic of conversation for weeks now, but things have just been cranked up a couple of notches in the last 24 hours, as we’ve now learned that Trump’s personal attorney has admitted to to paying $130,000 out of his own pocket just days before he 2016 presidential election to Daniels.
Cohen may think that he has squashed this whole thing by admitting to the press that it was he who paid her, not Trump – but as it turns out, Cohen’s move has backfired.
Stormy Daniels now believes she is free to discuss her alleged sexual encounter with Trump, according to an Associated Press report, and she intends to tell her story.
Daniels – whose real name is Stephanie Clifford – had a non-disclosure agreement and was forbidden to talk about her “alleged” sexual encounter with Donald Trump. However, Daniels believes Michael Cohen has now invalidated the agreement after publicly admitting to paying her $130,000 out of his own pocket.
There were two stories that broke surrounding the scandal: One, in which Cohen told the New York Times that he made the six-figure payment with his personal funds, and another in the Daily Beast, which reported that Cohen was shopping a book proposal that would touch on Daniels’ story, said the manager, Gina Rodriguez.
“Everything is off now, and Stormy is going to tell her story,” Rodriguez said.
LA Times point outs, Cohen said Tuesday the payment was made with his own money, and that “neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly.”
Rodriguez said her client will soon announce how and when she will tell her story publicly.
