WATCH: Stormy Daniels Shows Up at Court to Attend Michael Cohen Hearing
There was a media frenzy outside the federal courthouse in Manhattan today when Stormy Daniels arrived to attend Michael Cohen‘s hearing.
Cohen and other members of President Trump‘ legal team have assembled in order to challenge the Department of Justice over the FBI’s raid on Cohen’s offices last week. While Cohen has yet to be charged with anything, the investigation and seizure of his records was conducted due to suspicions that he committed bank fraud and violated campaign finance laws during the 2016 election. These suspected legal infractions all connect to the hush money he paid to Daniels in an attempt to make her keep quiet about her tryst with the president.
Over the weekend, attorney Michael Avenatti said that his client would attend today’s hearing and observe the proceedings. When Daniels appeared at the courthouse, the media swarmed her while she and her security detail made their way towards the building.
