The media has been fuming since Donald Trump won the 2016 election.
Ever since, they have hunted for a way to ruin his Presidency and undo the results of the election.
Now they may have found their smoking gun.
CNN has devoted round-the-clock coverage to porn star Stormy Daniels’ accusation that she had an affair with Trump back in 2007.
Daniels allegedly accepted a $130,000 payment from Trump lawyer Michael Cohen in October 2016 and signed an agreement preventing her from ever discussing the matter.
Trump supporters largely see this controversy as irrelevant since it took place nearly a decade before Trump ran for office and there are no allegations of sexual misconduct.
But the media hates the fact that Trump is President, and since the collusion investigation has turned into a bust, they are desperate to undermine our democracy by scheming to bring him down at all costs.
To that end, the left-wing outlet Buzzfeed is attempting to bypass the nondisclosure agreement through a lawsuit that has nothing to do with Daniels.
Cohen is suing Buzzfeed because they published the unverified Christopher Steele dossier in which Cohen was accused of colluding with the Russians when he traveled to Prague.
Since Cohen was involved in paying Daniels, Buzzfeed sent a letter to her asking that she preserve any records or communications as the first step to eventually subpoenaing her for a deposition.
“Now, BuzzFeed is using Cohen’s libel suit as a vehicle to demand that Daniels preserve all records relating to her relationship with Trump, as well as her dealings with Cohen and the payment he has acknowledged arranging in 2016.
On Tuesday, BuzzFeed’s lawyer wrote to Daniels’ attorney asking that the adult film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, preserve various categories of documents. Such preservation letters are often a prelude to a subpoena. If Daniels’ testimony is formally demanded in a deposition, the nondisclosure agreement would likely be no obstacle, legal experts said.
The letter from BuzzFeed’s attorney, obtained by POLITICO, argues that Cohen’s role in paying Daniels is similar to allegations in the dossier about Cohen. The dossier alleges that Cohen met Russian legal officials and legislators in Prague in August 2016 in a bid to “sweep … under the carpet” details of the relationship between Russia and Trump campaign officials like Paul Manafort and Rick Gates. Cohen has flatly denied the claim.
“Mr. Cohen’s role in President Trump’s 2016 campaign, including but not limited to any payments he made or facilitated to third parties during or in connection with the campaign, is therefore directly relevant to” Cohen’s suit, BuzzFeed lawyer Katherine Bolger wrote.”
Cohen’s attorney believes they will be able to defeat this gambit because whatever Daniels is accusing the President of, it has nothing to do with the Russia investigation or the Steele dossier.
Her testimony cannot shed any light on the truthfulness of what Buzzfeed published.
