Stormy Daniels Just Let Loose On Michael Cohen’s Treatment of Women, ‘It Ends Now’
After the courtroom proceedings for Michael Cohen’s hearing, porn star Stormy Daniel’s made a public statement condemning President Trump’s personal attorney.
In January, it was revealed that Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in hush money, on the condition that she never speak about her affair with Trump. At the time of their relationship, Trump was recently married to current first lady Melania Trump — who was pregnant with their son, Barron.
Daniels previously accused Cohen of using intimidation tactics to keep her quiet. Now she’s speaking up to make sure, as her lawyer Michael Avenatti says, Americans know the truth.
“For years, Mr. Cohen has acted like he is above the law, he has considered himself and openly referred to himself as Mr. Trump’s fixer. He has played by a different set of rules or should we say no rules at all,” Daniels stated. “He has never thought that the little man, or especially women or even more, women like me, matter. That ends now. My attorney and I are committed to making sure that everyone finds out the truth and facts of what happened, and I give my word that we will not rest until that happens.”
She didn’t take any questions after that, instead directing them to Avenatti instead, who reiterated her statements.
While Daniels did not testify during the hearing, her presence was noted, even by the courtroom artist. She is likely to continue appearing until the end of the trial, or the end of Trump’s presidency, whichever comes first.
