Adult-film actress Stormy Daniels is finally getting back at Trump and his lawyer Micheal Cohen, as she is reportedly cooperating with federal investigators looking into the $130,000 payment she received from Cohen during the 2016 election.
NBC News first reported that Daniels is cooperating with the FBI, which was later confirmed by Daniels’s lawyer Michael Avenatti, who said that he and his client would “fully cooperate with any search for the truth” relating to the $130,000 payment.
My client @stormydaniels and I will fully cooperate with any search for the truth regarding the threats, cover-up and lies concerning the NDA and $130k payment. Unlike others, we don’t require the presence of the fine members of the FBI in order to speak honestly. #basta

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, has said the payment was used as hush money to prevent her from speaking out about her alleged affair with Trump in 2006. Katy Tur asked Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Van White about the situation, who said there are likely other financial crimes involved with the FBI raid on Cohen’s offices. You can watch their exchange in the footage below.
