Adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who has been at the center of a scandal involving a hush money payment made to her by former President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, recently spoke to prosecutors in a New York investigation into the matter.
The Hush Money Payment
In 2016, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, had an affair with Donald Trump. In the months leading up to the 2016 election, Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in hush money to keep quiet about the affair. Trump has denied the affair, and Cohen was later convicted of several crimes related to the payment, including campaign finance violations.
Daniels’ Cooperation with Prosecutors
According to reports, Daniels recently spoke to prosecutors in a New York investigation into the hush money payment. Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, has said that his client has been fully cooperating with the investigation.
The investigation is reportedly focused on whether the payment violated campaign finance laws, and whether Trump’s campaign played a role in the decision to make the payment.
Daniels’ Role in the Investigation
Daniels’ cooperation with prosecutors is a significant development in the investigation, as she is one of the key figures involved in the hush money payment. In addition to speaking to prosecutors, Daniels has also been vocal about the affair and the payment, and has been a vocal critic of Trump.
The investigation is ongoing, and it remains to be seen what impact Daniels’ cooperation will have on the outcome.
