The Donald should expect a ‘Stormy Sunday’ in the near future
A little after noon today, NBC Nes reported that Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen used a Trump Organization e-mail to communicate with Stormy Daniels’s attorney in the process of setting up a hush money payment through a separate LLC created especially to pay Daniels. Cohen identified himself as a “special counsel to Donald Trump,” which strongly undercuts the distance Cohen had tried to put between himself and Trump, and suggests Trump and/or his business associates knew about the matter.
This adds to a week of woes The Donald has faced this week as detail after detail of the dodgy Daniels deal is divulged.
To top it all off, erotic cinema’s most well-known actress has talked to Anderson Cooper in an interview for a future episode of a certain weekly TV newsmagazine with a history of setting the Monday morning headlines.
Former adult film actress Stormy Daniels has recorded an interview for CBS’s 60 Minutes after filing a civil suit against President Trump this week in an attempt to void a nondisclosure agreement between the pair.
A source familiar with the program told The Hill that Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, will appear on 60 Minutes on a future date but won’t be on the program this coming Sunday.
Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing Clifford, tweeted a photo of himself Thursday along with the actress and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, a contributor to 60 Minutes.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch…
There is pervasive anxiety inside the walls of the White House over the fallout around allegations leveled against President Donald Trump by porn actress Stormy Daniels, multiple sources tell CNN, with some officials worried that the salacious accusations and tangled legal fight could dwarf past controversies.
The story of the pair’s alleged 2006 relationship blends the scandalous details of an affair, a bungled attempt to silence the porn actress and the President’s penchant for a larger-than-life lifestyle before he entered the White House, a combination that seems too combustible not to further entangle the Trump administration.
They have good reason to worry. Watch this!
Avenatti on why Daniels’ story matters: “Because coverups matter… You have attorney Cohen claiming that Donald Trump never knew anything about this. You have the White House claiming Donald Trump never knew anything about this. That is going to be shown to be patently false. ” pic.twitter.com/HamSwGzkr4

This is not going well for Uncle Dotard. Have the popcorn and TiVo ready; we’re hoping for a March 18 air date for the Stormy interview.
