Amid reports suggesting Donald Trump may take legal action to keep the Stormy Daniels 60 Minutes interview from airing, CNN’s Brian Stelter reached out to the president’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen — and received some unsolicited makeup advice.
“When I reached Michael Cohen on his cell phone, he deferred Q’s to his lawyer and told me I should wear more makeup on TV,” Stelter wrote in today’s Reliable Sources newletter.

Stelter commented on the anecdote on Twitter:
True. It made me laugh https://t.co/XH7LOI7Cqa

Glamour tips aside, a BuzzFeed News report released over the weekend alleged Trump’s team is seeking legal action to keep the pornstar the president allegedly had an affair with from going on 60 Minutes. “We understand from well-placed sources they are preparing to file for a legal injunction to prevent it from airing,” one informed source told BuzzFeed News.
While it is not entirely clear what actions Trump’s legal counsel is interested in taking, their time is running out as the interview is set to air Sunday, March 18. Despite initially being under a $130,000 nondisclosure agreement, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, appears to be open to coming forward with her story after lawyer Michael Avenatti sued to drop the so-called “hush arrangement.”
