    Things might be about to get Stormy for Donald Trump. In New York City in the US, the District Attorney has convened a Grand Jury to hear a case that the former President should be indicted on charges relating to the hush money payout to the adult film actress Stormy Daniels in 2016. Since last Monday, a panel of 23 citizens of New York City have begun hearing from witnesses called by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. It is the clearest signal yet that the DA’s office wants to bring charges against Donald Trump in connection with the way his...

    The Manhattan District Attorney’s office is reviving its criminal investigation into Trump’s ‘hush payments’ to porn star Stephanie Clifford, AKA, Stormy Daniels. Trump has been accused of paying Daniels ‘hush payments’ in a scheme to silence her about their alleged affair. Trump has denied the affair. House Democrats previously launched the inquiry into the hush payments ahead of the 2020 election cycle as a way to bog down Trump and slow down his 2020 re-election campaign. Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s predecessor previously rejected the Trump ‘hush payments’ case because it wouldn’t stand up in court. Fast-forward a couple years and...

    Subhead:The sentence would run consecutively with a prison term Avenatti is already serving in an embezzlement case involving former adult film actor Stormy Daniels. The sentence would run consecutively with a four-year sentence handed down in a separate case in New York involving former adult film actor Stormy Daniels. Avenatti, who once represented Daniels, was found guilty in February of stealing $300,000 of the $800,000 advance Daniels was paid for her book “Full Disclosure,” which included details about an affair she says she had with Donald Trump before he was president. In the California case, Avenatti admitted pocketing millions of...

    Former star lawyer Michael Avenatti, who rose to fame representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her legal battles with then-president Donald Trump, on Thursday got 4 years in prison for stealing from her. Avenatti was convicted in early February of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from Daniels. He reportedly choked up in court during his sentencing. During a two-week trial, prosecutors said the California lawyer spun a web of lies to cheat Daniels of nearly $300,000 she was owed for her autobiography, spending it on his firm’s payroll and personal expenses. Avenatti argued in closing arguments that he was...

    Disgraced California lawyer Michael Avenatti wants leniency at his sentencing for defrauding former client Stormy Daniels out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, his lawyers say, citing a groveling letter in which he told Daniels: 'I am truly sorry.' The emailed letter, dated May 13, was included in a submission his lawyers made late Thursday in Manhattan federal court in advance of a June 2 sentencing. Avenatti, 51, should face no more than three years in prison for his latest conviction, or 4 1/2 years in all, because two convictions have destroyed his life, the lawyers said.

    New York Times story seen as effort to put spin on bad news Long before the New York Post's blockbuster, election-eve stories on Hunter Biden's laptop in 2020, investigative reporter and author Peter Schweizer documented the Biden family's international business of selling access to the White House for millions of dollars. Schweizer's 2018 book "Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends" and a follow-up, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite," presented evidence that five members of the Biden family cashed in while Joe Biden was vice president.

    The Federal Election Commission has dropped its inquiry into Donald Trump’s alleged payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels. The Commission is comprised of six members: three Republicans, two Democrats, and one independent. The case was decided with a 2-2 vote. Both Democrats voted that the case against Trump should proceed; two of the Republicans voted to drop the inquiry; the other Republican recused himself from the case, and the Independent did not vote. Thus, the case was dropped because there was no majority.

    Stormy Daniels says she regularly fears that President Trum could win reelection. “I will be voting,” the adult-film star told an audience of almost entirely women on Tuesday at The Wing in Washington. “Some days I’m like, ‘There’s no way — this is gonna be amazing,'” Daniels told moderator Jane Mulkerrins, a freelance journalist, when asked during the Q&A session about the prospects of what might happen in the 2020 presidential election. “Other days I’m like, ‘This motherf---er’s going to win again,’” she said of Trump. Daniels, who was born Stephanie Clifford, sued Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen...

    Federal prosecutors say an IRS investigator in California has admitted leaking confidential details of financial transactions by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen to Michael Avenatti, lawyer for Stormy Daniels. John C. Fry has been charged in federal court with searching for and disseminating Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs), reports filed by banks when they note potentially suspicious transactions. Federal officials say they found telephone records that indicate Fry placed a phone call from his personal cell phone to that of Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti the day before Avenatti released details of Cohen's financial transactions, and the day after. The federal...

    A federal judge in Los Angeles on Monday formally dismissed porn actress Stormy Daniels' defamation claim against Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer. The civil allegation against Cohen was tossed "with prejudice," meaning that it's permanently done and Trump's one-time lawyer will "no longer face the threat of further litigation in this court or any other forum," according to the order by U.S. District Court Judge James Otero. Daniels' legal team had previously asked Otero, back in November, to dismiss a defamation claim against the president's lawyer. "We asked that the minor defamation claim be dismissed and it was,"...

    Michael Avenatti will attend the congressional testimony by President Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen along with porn actress and alleged Trump mistress Stormy Daniels. Avenatti said on Twitter that Daniels was the original spark to Cohen’s legal troubles and the two will be in attendance when he appears before the House Oversight Committee next month. “I am pleased to announce that @StormyDaniels and I will attend the congressional hearing when Cohen testifies. Which is only appropriate seeing as it would have never happened but for @StormyDaniels,” Avenatti wrote.

    the grounds for saying Trump broke a law are laughably flimsy. The argument is that since the hush money was paid to “influence” the election, it was a campaign expenditure. But by that logic, every dime Chris Christie spent to lose weight before his 2016 run — the diet books, the StairMaster, the bariatric surgery — was a campaign expenditure. If Christie bought a SlimFast shake with his personal money, was he a felon? Former Federal Election Commissioner Bradley Smith posited another hypothetical: “If a business owner ran for political office and decided to pay bonuses to his employees in...

    FULL TITLE: Trump Paid Stormy Himself. Congress Paid Its Victims $17 Million out of Treasury. Who’re the Real Criminals? The one person who seemed to sum up the Democrats’ reaction to Michael Cohen’s guilty plea — and subsequent allegations against President Donald Trump — was Rep. Jerry Nadler. There’s long been speculation that the New York Democrat is considering impeachment hearings against Trump and anyone around him regardless of what the evidence might entail. A report from the day after the midterms had the powerful ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee ranting on a train about impeaching Supreme Court...

    Stormy Daniels, the adult film actor who claims she had an affair with Donald Trump 12 years ago, has said her lawyer sued the president this year without her permission and has not been transparent about money raised on her behalf via an online fundraising appeal. In a statement given to the Daily Beast, Daniels said Michael Avenatti “has been a great advocate in many ways” but he “has not treated me with the respect and deference an attorney should show to a client”. She said she had not decided “what to do about legal representation moving forward”. Daniels has...
