Stormy Daniels' Lawyer Livid After Prosecutors Suddenly Cancel Meeting With His Client

Stephanie Clifford, better known by her professional name 'Stormy Daniels', was all set to meet with prosecutors in New York City as part of an ongoing criminal investigation. The adult film star who alleges she had an affair with President Donald Trump in 2006, and that Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000 in hush money. Cohen is being investigated, but Daniels didn't get to share her story with the prosecutor because the meeting was called off.

Michael Avenatti, Daniels' attorney, is furious that the Manhattan meeting was canceled for Monday. The U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York reportedly called off the meeting because the media found out about it, and were expected to show up with cameras outside, according to Avenatti.

The attorney offered to change the location of the meeting and said his client would go anywhere to talk to prosecutors, but the meeting wasn't rescheduled.

Avenatti took to Twitter to update people on the events, and vent his frustrations. "If they consider this a big deal, how will they... 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," he complained. "We remain willing to cooperate but something isn't right..."

The media circus around the deal made between the porn actress and the president's attorney has already been in full swing, which will make discretion extremely challenging in any case. The U.S. attorney's office has not yet commented on the meeting, the cancelation, or about whether the meeting will be rescheduled.

According to CNN, Assistant US Attorney Nicolas Roos wrote to Avenatti in an email that they found out the attorney leaked news of the meeting to the press.

"Such leaks are inappropriate in and of themselves, and more importantly, call into question your commitment to maintaining the required confidentiality of the substance of our meeting with your client," Roos said. "Such confidentiality is critical to the diligence, fairness, and integrity of this, and indeed all, investigations conducted by this Office. For these reasons we have cancelled our meeting, and will reassess how to proceed."

Avenatti denies this.

The prosecutor was seeking information about the payment Cohen made to Daniels, and where the money came from. Cohen admitted he paid Daniels to sign the Non-Disclosure agreement, but that Trump didn’t know about it. He also backed up President Trump, who denies the affair ever took place.

As we learned from the Monica Lewinsky scandal, having an affair isn’t an impeachable offense, but lying about having an affair under oath is. An even bigger issue, however, revolves around the origins of the money that landed in Daniels’ hands. At first, Cohen claims he took it out of his own pocket, but then it later came out that Trump paid him back. Many question whether the funds could have been funneled in from Russia, or from Trump's campaign funds, which would be highly illegal.

If the money did, in fact, come from an illegal source, another important question comes to light: did Donald Trump or any other member of his campaign team know about it?

It looks like the investigation will drag on.
