The slow drip of details from the whole Stormy Daniels “scandal” is starting to look like retaliation for the death by a thousand cuts Fox News gave Hillary Clinton over the years. Check out this from NBC:
President Donald Trump’s personal attorney used his Trump Organization email while arranging to transfer money into an account at a Manhattan bank before he wired $130,000 to adult film star Stormy Daniels to buy her silence.
The lawyer, Michael Cohen, also regularly used the same email account during 2016 negotiations with the actress — whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford — before she signed a nondisclosure agreement, a source familiar with the discussions told NBC News.
And Clifford’s attorney at the time addressed correspondence to Cohen in his capacity at the Trump Organization and as “Special Counsel to Donald J. Trump,” the source said.
What the money was for and why it was wired was never actually made clear other than in the heads at MSNBC, but [GASP] someone on the Trump team used a trump email to conduct correspondence with the lawyer of a porn star who says she and the then-private citizen had an affair.
“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,” Cohen said in that statement.
Yo, MSNBC, did you notice that President Trump was one of the people who got North Korea to give up their nuclear weapons? Or that a summit with them is being arranged? Or is decades old sex more important than world peace?
The important point, according to the people who claim they should be the ones to tell American what to think, is that the email came from Trump operation, not actions that occurred.
“I think this document seriously calls into question the prior representation of Mr. Cohen and the White House relating to the source of the monies paid to Ms. Clifford in an effort to silence her,” said Avenatti, who is representing Clifford in a lawsuit against Trump.
“We smell smoke.”
Yes, it’s a screen covering up the real accomplishments of the Trump Administration that’s driving a wedge among the people.
