It looks like the FBI’s Russia investigation might actually provide answers about the Stormy Daniels affair as well! On April 9, the FBI raided Donald Trump‘s personal lawyer Michael Cohen’s NYC office and home, taking thousands of records regarding Russia, according to the New York Times. They also reportedly took records of the $130,000 of hush money paid by Cohen to keep Stormy quiet, along with emails, tax documents, and business records.
Cohen called the raid “completely inappropriate and unecessary,” and his own lawyer revealed that the search warrant was issued at the request of Special Council Robert Mueller, who has been leading the Russia investigation. President Trump said it was “a disgraceful situation,” and part of a “witch hunt” against him.
In regards to the Stormy records, her lawyer Michael Avenatti took to Twitter to respond, saying, “an enormous amount of misplaced faith has been placed on [Michael Cohen]’s shoulders [in my opinion]. If he does not hold up, this could end very, very badly for [Donald Trump] and others.” Stormy herself has yet to respond to the situation.
Stormy was allegedly paid $130,000 in 2016 during the election to keep quiet about her 2005 affair with the then-reality star. Though she’s still fighting to nullify the non-disclosure agreement she signed, she shared everything about her affair with the married man in an explosive 5,000-word interview with In Touch in 2011. In it, she talks about her sexual experiences with the president, his offers to get her a gig on Celebrity Apprentice, and his nonchalance about his wife, Melania. It’s unclear how the FBI seizing the records will change things, but we’ll be waiting on the edge of our seats to find out.
