Stormy Gets Chatty? Michael Cohen to Rescind NDA for Porn Star

In this whirlwind of political drama known as 2018, it can be easy to lose track of how many errant strands of nonsensical narrative are woven throughout the Trump tapestry.

In what the democrats had tried to spin as the “death knell” of the Trump presidency just weeks ago, former lawyer to the President, Michael Cohen, seemingly “flipped” on the Commander in Chief, pleading guilty and offering up his testimony to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Now, in what many had hoped was a situation they had already heard the last of, Stormy Daniels is back in the news, taking advantage of the suddenly cooperative Cohen.

Michael Cohen has agreed to rescind the nondisclosure agreement that legally required Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about her alleged affair with President Donald Trump, Cohen’s former client.

Cohen’s lawyers had threatened Daniels, an adult film star whose birth name is Stephanie Clifford, could be sued for more than $20 million for nondisclosure agreement violations. But under the rescission, Clifford could talk about her alleged 2006 sexual encounter with Trump without fearing such penalties.

In return, Cohen, Trump’s former longtime personal lawyer who once told Vanity Fair he’d “take a bullet for the president,” wants the $130,000 back that he paid her in the settlement agreement.

Of course, Daniels’ grandstanding lawyer had another idea:

…Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti suggested a direct motive on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time.”

“What they’re trying to do is they don’t want me to get a chance to depose Michael Cohen and Donald Trump,” Avenatti said. “This is a hail Mary to try and avoid that, that’s my first guess.”

“He is back to doing Trump’s bidding and acting as a fixer,” he added.

I hate to burst Michael Avenatti’s bubble, but I think Michael Cohen has more pressing concerns than whether or not you’re going to be dragging him into court.
