Did you watch Stormy Daniels’ interview with Anderson Cooper on “60 Minutes” tonight? Probably. I did. You can see video highlights on CBS 60 Minutes Overtime here:I was frankly impressed with Stephanie (“Stormy Daniels”) Clifford. I found her story to be believable. She did not claim victimhood, took responsibility for her own decision to go alone to Trump’s hotel room, was frank about seeing her involvement with Trump as a business decision.
Her description of the threats against her and her daughter were chilling, and also quite credible. We know that the President is a ruthless man.
We know he surrounds himself with ruthless and truthless people, who by some saving grace are also mostly incompetent at their jobs.
It seems likely that it all went down as “Stormy” said it had, and that the subsequent Non-Disclosure-Agreement, hush-money coverup, and legal brangling had also happened as she recounted.
Expect Michael Cohen, Trump’s lawyer and attack dog, to be the next person thrown under the Trump bus. (If he doesn’t turn against Trump first) Since he paid out $130,000 to Ms. Clifford, why did he pay it? If there was no affair, as Trump says, then why pay?
Since no one who signed the NDA was using their real names, does it have any force in law? Is it a legally binding document?
Was the $130,000 a campaign contribution from Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen to the Trump campaign? If so, why wasn’t it reported? And why was it paid to a pornographic movie actress?
Meanwhile, here’s the “money quote” (pun intended) from Ms. Clifford, on the occasion of her declaring intent to run against Louisiana Congressman “Diaper Dave” Vitter:
“Daniels said she has been a registered Democrat throughout her life. ‘But now I cannot help but recognize that over time my libertarian values regarding both money and sex and the legal use of one for the other is now best espoused by the Republican Party’.”
