For the first time, Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen speaks with porn star Stormy Daniels in an hourlong chat on Cohen’s podcast, Mea Culpa.

Via HuffPost:

Seeking to bury the hatchet, Cohen interviews Daniels in the latest episode of his podcast, “Mea Culpa,” in which the two commiserate over life-altering experiences with Trump and his recent departure from office.

Cohen, in keeping with the title of his program, apologizes for “the needless pain” he put Daniels through when he arranged a $130,000 payment during the 2016 presidential campaign to keep her quiet about an alleged dalliance with Trump a decade earlier. Trump has denied the affair.

“Both of our stories will be forever linked with Donald Trump, but also with one another,” Cohen tells her. “Thanks for giving me a second chance.”

Also in the podcast chat, Daniels refers to the 2008 sexual encounter with Trump “the worst 90 seconds of my life, for sure, because it just made me hate myself.”

She shares that she hadn’t planned on having sex with the Donald. At one point in the tryst she apparently pondered how to escape the room, thinking “I could definitely outrun him.”

Cohen has been recording the podcast from his living room in Manhattan since being released from prison last summer. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and health concerns in crowded prisons, he’s being allowed to serve out the rest of his sentence at home.

Vice Cops Fired For False Arrest Of Stormy Daniels

Two U.S. vice cops were fired on Friday for the wrongful arrest of porn star Stormy Daniels during a strip club appearance in 2018.

Not only were Officers Steven Rosser and Whitney Lancaster dismissed from duties, but Daniels (who has claimed an affair with Donald Trump) was also awarded $450,000 in damages in September 2019.

More from RawStory:

Daniels had charged in a lawsuit that she was arrested for political reasons related to her claim before the 2016 election that Trump had sought to buy her silence over an affair a decade earlier, to avoid it affecting his prospects in the presidential contest.

The charges said that, while topless at the club, she pushed the faces of customers into her breasts.

The charges against her were quickly dropped following her detention. But she sued the city for false arrest and false imprisonment and the case was settled in September 2019 for $450,000.

In dismissing the officers, Columbus Director of Public Safety Ned Pettus noted that the actions taken against Daniels “deviated significantly from actions taken at every other strip club investigated by you.”

According to Pettus, normal procedures would have been to file charges against an offender after a club visit and issue a summons for the person’s appearance in court, rather than arresting them on the spot and taking them into custody as they did with Daniels.

Stormy Daniels Gets $450K Settlement For Ohio Arrest

Former Donald Trump paramour Stormy Daniels has agreed to accept a $450K settlement from the city of Columbus, Ohio, related to an arrest at a strip club by pro-Trump cops in 2018.

From the New York Post:

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, agreed to drop all of her claims in a civil suit against Columbus related to her arrest at Sirens Gentlemen’s Club in July 2018, her lawyer, Chase Mallory said in a message Friday.

Daniels, who was paid hush money to keep quiet about a sexual encounter she had with President Trump prior to the 2016 election, accused the police officers who arrested her that night of planning the bust to protect the president.

Mallory said Friday that she could have gotten a higher payout — but she accepted the amount after the police officers in the case were disciplined for the arrest.

Manhattan DA Revives Investigation Into Trump Payments To Stormy Daniels

Manhattan DA Revives Investigation Into Trump Payments To Stormy Daniels

The saga of Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels is not over.

From the New York Times:

State prosecutors in Manhattan subpoenaed President Trump’s family business on Thursday, reviving an investigation into the company’s role in hush-money payments made during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to people briefed on the matter.

The subpoena, issued by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, demanded the Trump Organization provide documents related to money that had been used to buy the silence of Stormy Daniels, a pornographic film actress who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump.

The inquiry from the district attorney’s office, which is in early stages, is examining whether any senior executives at the company filed false business records about the hush money, which would be a state crime, the people said.

The prosecutors say they are also looking at payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who said she had an affair with the Donald.

The Wall Street Journal, a conservative newspaper I will point out, has issued its report on the hush money payments by Donald Trump to former Playmate Susan McDougal and porn star Stormy Daniels.

The report itself is behind the newspaper’s firewall, but CNBC has the receipts:

President Donald Trump was involved in “nearly every step” of hush-money agreements with multiple women who claimed they had sexual affairs before he became president, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

The newspaper, citing dozens of interviews and document, also reported that Trump may have violated federal campaign-finance laws through his participation in the deals. Trump has denied knowing about a $130,000 payment made to Stormy Daniels, an adult film star and director who alleges she had sex with Trump in 2006.

The Journal reported that Trump, as a presidential candidate, “directed deals in phone calls and meetings” related to the women with Cohen. The U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan, which prosecuted Cohen, has reportedly also collected evidence of Trump’s involvement in the agreements.

Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, took to Twitter to make sure folks knew about the reporting.

If you aren’t a subscribe to The Wall Street Journal, you can watch the video report below as the WSJ team breaks down the information and series of events they have uncovered.

Again – this is a conservative-leaning news paper. The WSJ is no ‘liberal’ anything. Watch below.

Trump Calls Stormy Daniels “Horseface,” Daniels Responds Pointing Out His “Shortcomings”

Stormy Daniels

After a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by porn star Stormy Daniels against Donald Trump alleging he had defamed her by calling her claims of a one night stand a lie, Trump took to Twitter to call the adult performer, among other things, “horseface.”

Trump tweeted, “Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!”

You may notice that last misplaced comma basically shows Trump calling himself “a total con.”

But Stormy Daniels is not one to stand down. The porn star slapped back with her own biting critique addressing him as “Tiny.”

For his part, Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti also jumped into the fray:

Stormy Daniels On Sex With Donald Trump: “I Laid There And Prayed For Death”

Stormy Daniels on Jimmy Kimmel Live (courtesy of ABC)

 Stormy Daniels dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote her new tell-all memoir, Full Disclosure, and along the way the porn star offered even more details about her 2007 sexcapade with Donald Trump.

Out actress Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story: Apocalypse) gleefully asked if she could stay on stage for the Stormy segment telling Kimmel she would love to play the porn star in the film version of her book.

After sitting down, Kimmel took the conversation right to “Chapter Trump.”

Daniels shared that when she first met the Trumpster in his hotel suite that fateful night, he was wearing silky black pajamas: “I’m pretty sure I thought he was channeling Hugh Hefner. Significantly less sexy.”

According to Daniels, she told him to change.

“I wish you could make him change now,” quipped Kimmel.

“He followed orders much better back then,” Daniels said with a laugh.

Kimmel replied he thought Daniels could still order the Donald around a bit, but Daniels was quick saying, “I don’t speak Russian.”

Kimmel couldn’t help but bring up the now-infamous moment during the evening when Daniels reportedly spanked the Donald with a magazine, asking, “What does he do, when you spank Donald Trump?”

Without pause, Daniels responded, “Do you want me to show you? Get up!”

After spanking Kimmel with her book, the late night host paused to pray saying, “Please, God, let him (Trump) be watching this right now.”

Eventually, the chat gets around to Daniels and Trump doing ‘the deed.’

“And you made love,” said Kimmel.

“Gross,” shrieked Daniels. “What’s wrong with you? I laid there and prayed for death!”

Kimmel referenced the passage in Daniels’ book where she had described Trump’s junk as being “smaller than average” and said his penis was “like the mushroom character in Mario Kart.”

The late night host then presented Daniels with a tray of mushrooms and asked the porn star to pick the one that most resembled Trump’s penis.

“Can you hold it up so it’s coming at me at the correct angle?” asked Daniels.

Taking a moment, she selected one of the smaller toad stools saying with a sly grin, “It’s the most accurate depiction.”

Throughout the segment, Daniels showed herself to be confident, smart and quick with a clever line.

Watch below. Daniels’ memoir, Full Disclosure, is available now.
