Stormy Daniels reaches settlement with Michael Cohen and her former attorney

Stormy Daniels reaches settlement with Michael Cohen and her former attorney Stormy Daniels has reached a settlement with Michael Cohen and Keith Davidson, her former attorney, in her lawsuit that accused both men of working together to protect President Donald Trump. Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, sued Cohen, Trump's former personal attorney, and Davidson, accusing them of colluding to protect Trump. In a deal brokered between the two attorneys, Daniels was paid $130,000 to prevent the adult-film star from publicly speaking about her alleged sexual relationship with Trump. According to federal court documents, Daniels and Davidson have reached and executed a settlement.

Prominent Trump critic George Conway on Thursday posted a picture of President Trump’s $35,000 check to his former lawyer Michael Cohen, along with a quote from Trump’s Wednesday press conference: “I don’t do cover-ups.”

Cohen has testified that the check was partial reimbursement for the $130,000 he paid actress Stormy Daniels as hush money to cover up a sexual encounter she says she had with Trump. The money changed hands shortly before the 2016 election and was part of the evidence in Cohen’s plea deal with federal prosecutors that resulted in his prison sentence. Cohen has said he made the payment at Trump’s direction.

Trump critic Avenatti indicted for ripping off Stormy Daniels, extorting Nike

Trump critic Avenatti indicted for ripping off Stormy Daniels, extorting Nike Federal prosecutors on Wednesday announced new criminal charges against Michael Avenatti, escalating the legal troubles for the combative lawyer who once represented porn star Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against U.S. President Donald Trump.

Conway is the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

On Wednesday, the president walked out of a White House meeting with congressional leaders, saying he couldn’t work with Democrats while they were pursuing investigations of his campaign and administration. Earlier, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had said Trump’s refusal to cooperate with congressional investigations amounted to a “cover-up.”

“I don’t do cover-ups,” Trump said at a hastily arranged press conference in the Rose Garden afterward.

Conway clashes with Pelosi after Trump infrastructure blow-up

Conway clashes with Pelosi after Trump infrastructure blow-up White House counselor Kellyanne Conway engaged in a tense exchange with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday after President Trump suddenly cut short a meeting on infrastructure.Trump left the meeting after berating Democrats for roughly three minutes about their investigations and Pelosi's claim that he had "engaged in a cover-up."Pelosi then told others who remained that past Presidents Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt worked with their opponents to solve infrastructure problems, but added she was not surprised Trump walked away, according to a source familiar with the exchange.

Kellyanne Conway, who was present at the meeting, reportedly clashed with Pelosi after Trump’s exit.

According to the Washington Post, after Trump left the room, Conway asked Pelosi if she wanted to respond to what Trump had said.

“I’ll respond to the president, not staff,” Pelosi said.

“Wow, that’s really pro-woman of you,” Conway shot back.

“She treats everybody like they’re her staff,” Conway said Thursday on Fox News. “She treats me like I’m either her maid or her driver, her pilot or her makeup artist.”

Meanwhile, George Conway, a prominent conservative lawyer, has become one of Trump’s most outspoken critics.

In a scathing op-ed for the Washington Post last month, Conway argued that the evidence collected by special counsel Robert Mueller is so “damning,” Trump should be impeached immediately.

“What the Mueller report disturbingly shows, with crystal clarity, is that today there is a cancer in the presidency: President Donald J. Trump,” Conway wrote. “Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay.”
