I told myself “no more diaries about the president-reject.” But this one is just too good to pass up.
‘FOR SURE’Stormy Daniels has picked an unlikely confidant to share details of her alleged affair with Donald Trump with—Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer who arranged the hush-money payments to her. According to the Associated Press, Cohen interviewed Daniels in the latest episode of his podcast, Mea Culpa, in which the two bonded over their experiences of being sucked into the Trump orbit. Cohen apologized for “the needless pain” he put Daniels through, while Daniels discussed her alleged affair with Trump.[…]Daniels said her memory of the encounter was reawakened after she saw the movie Bombshell, which is about Roger Ailes’ sexual harassment of women at Fox News. “I didn’t say anything for years because I didn’t remember,” she said, before going on to describe it as “the worst 90 seconds of my life, for sure, because it just made me hate myself.” Daniels said she didn’t feel “physically threatened” by Trump, but did think about escaping the room, and recalled her internal monologue of: “I could definitely outrun him.” Trump has always denied the affair.
A parting shot to a sharting shit?
NEW YORK (AP) — The federal probe of hush money paid to cover up former President Donald Trump’s alleged extramarital affairs hasn’t been restarted, even though he no longer has the legal shield of the presidency, The Associated Press has learned.
But that’s just the Feds………
Meanwhile, in Gotham City………….
Trump still faces a minefield of other potential legal issues on top of his second impeachment trial opening next week, including investigations of his business practices by the Manhattan district attorney and the New York attorney general.
The Manhattan prosecutor’s probe includes a look at the 2016 hush-money payoffs. Cohen has said that Trump greenlighted a $130,000 payment to Daniels ahead of the election and later reimbursed him for the payment with “fake legal fees.”
The AP reported last month that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office recently interviewed Cohen for hours, quizzing him about Trump’s business dealings.
“Trump has since gotten himself embroiled in more dramatic — and potentially more easily provable — forms of criminality,” said Elie Honig, a legal analyst and former federal prosecutor in Manhattan.
