Stormy Daniels Will Reportedly Meet With Prosecutors in Michael Cohen Investigation on Monday
Stormy Daniels is reportedly set to meet with prosecutors in the Southern District of New York on Monday. The interview is in advance of a potential grand jury appearance over the $130,000 payment President Donald Trump‘s lawyer Michael Cohen made to Daniels.
According to The Washington Post, which first reported the story:
Daniels and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, have been cooperating with prosecutors and provided documents about the payment, made shortly before the 2016 election, in response to a subpoena, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide the information about Monday’s interview.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney and attorneys for Cohen declined to comment.
CNN also reported on the planned interview, noting early Sunday evening during their broadcast, “one focus of the questioning for Daniels is expected to be that $130,000 hush money payment she received from Cohen in 2016.”
CNN also reached out to always-in-the-media Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti but he declined to comment on the matter.
The lawyer who, based on his tweets, has been largely focused on his efforts with migrant families lately, has also not tweeted out about Daniels’ planned appearance.
Watch above, via CNN.
UPDATE: The meeting was canceled, as per Avenatti in a late Sunday night tweet.
ever bring any serious criminal charges against Cohen et al., let alone handle a trial, in such a high profile matter? We have bent over backwards to accommodate them. This is unheard of. We remain willing to cooperate but something isn’t right…
