Stormy Daniels Meeting With Cohen Prosecutors Canceled

A meeting between Stormy Daniels and federal prosecutors investigating Donald Trump’s longtime attorney Michael Cohen has been canceled after details were leaked to the media. Daniels, the adult-film actress whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was due to meet with prosecutors from the U.S. attorney’s office in New York on Monday to prepare for a possible grand jury appearance as investigators build their case against Cohen. The meeting will not go ahead and has not been rescheduled. Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted angrily about the cancellation late Sunday, writing: “So I was just informed by the U.S. [attorney’s] office that they are canceling the meeting tomorrow scheduled with me and my client (for weeks) because the press found out about the meeting and they can’t handle a few cameras outside their offices.” He added: “We have bent over backwards to accommodate them. This is unheard of. We remain willing to cooperate but something isn’t right.” The interview was expected to focus on the $130,000 hush-money payment Daniels received from Cohen in exchange for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter she had with Trump.
