There have been people who want Stormy Daniels to go away, either because they support Trump or because they view her as a “distraction.”
That latter group of people are now eating their words. Because the Stormy sex story has now been linked with Trump’s biggest scandal:
Michael Avenatti tweeted out this explosive statement:
“After significant investigation, we have discovered that Mr. Trump’s atty Mr. Cohen received approximately $ 500,000 in the [months] after the election.”
The alleged origins of that sizable transfer of funds make this story much bigger than it first appeared.
“From a company controlled by a Russian Oligarc with close ties to Mr. Putin.”
And he links it directly to Stormy’s legal battle.
“These monies may have reimbursed the $ 130k payment.”
In other words, he is saying that Russia itself put forward the money to silence Stormy … but only after funneling it through Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
So, what Avenatti is specifically claiming is that Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney, received $ 500,000 from a company controlled by a Russian oligarch.
That money was then apparently deposited into an account that was used to pay Stormy Daniels her hush money.
While there are other deposits that Avenatti finds suspicious, from state-run Korea Aerospace Industries to Novartis to AT&T, the Stormy revelation is getting the most attention.
A lot of people are shocked and even amused that Cohen seems to have used the same account for all of this.
But the accusation — of knowingly using foreign funds to influence American politics — is no laughing matter.
Avenatti looks vindicated and resolute, but not amused.
This is huge, for multiple reasons.
See, while the Stormy Daniels sex scandal has left many of Trump’s critics feeling as entertained as Ivanka’s neighbor watching an LGBT protest in front of the First Daughter’s house … it’s had others worried.
What, they wondered, if this whole Stormy Daniels thing were just a distraction?
This has been a concern about a large number of things, from Trump’s outlandish Twitter rants to numerous other scandals in the Trump White House.
Others have countered, essentially saying that Trump isn’t clever enough to elaborately plot these things and that he’s just every bit the disaster that he seems to be.
But this claim is that the Stormy Daniels scandal intersects with the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia to influence the outcome of the 2016 Presidential elections.
Which would mean that this isn’t a distraction or just another negative thing about Trump — it might be the key to his undoing.
In Avenatti’s words: “This thing’s ugly and it’s gonna get worse.”
But … will Michael Cohen flip on Trump’s involvement?
He has recently said that he loves his family and puts them first, and that this investigation and scandal has been making their lives miserable.
We hope that he will do the right thing and tell the truth, whatever that may be.
He is doubtless feeling a lot of pressure from multiple political forces.
He may also fear that he will go to prison if he confesses to any crimes — sometimes, even cutting a deal with the prosecution means spending time behind bars.
But telling the truth would have to be the right thing, right? Whether or not he would be revealing what so many hope or fear he will say.
For now, however, Cohen has claimed that “his document is inaccurate.”
Cohen’s attorney asserted “This is not a payment.”
Stormy is still not the only part of this story raising eyebrows.
It is worth noting that AT&T says that their donation was for “insights” into the Trump administration.
Of course, these donations began after Trump spoke against a merger that AT&T had been working on. Trump has not commented publicly on that merger since.
AT&T is also one of the massive companies expected to benefit from the tragic downfall of Net Neutrality, which Trump has set into motion.
Some believe that AT&T essentially paid bribes to — or through — Cohen in order to promote their business interests over the will of the American people.
AT&T is sure to continue to object to that characterization.
Still, there’s no part of this story more explosive than the alleged affair with and then silencing of Stormy herself.

In many ways, Kaylee Moats is your average 23-year old.
She hails from Arizona. She’s in a committed, long-term relationship.
And she wants to have sex with her partner.
But there’s one thing holding Moats back:
She suffers from Mayer Rokitansky Kuster Hauser syndrome (MRKH), which means she was born without a cervix, uterus or vaginal opening.
The condition affects just one in 5,000 women and the cause is not known.
But the result unfortunately is: In short, Moats was born without a vagina.
Concerned over why she had not yet had a period at the age of 18, Moats visited a doctor at that time who ordered an MRI.
This is when she learned of her diagnosis.
Five years later, Kaylee her family have launched a GoFundMe page for surgery that would allow her to be in an intimate relationship. It would make it possible for her to engage in intercourse.
(Note: For those wondering, insurance companies refuse cover this type of surgery because they don’t consider it to be a life-saving treatment.)
Speaking to The Daily Mail, the Arizona native says she’s under no pressure at all from her boyfriend, who she met senior year of college.
“He doesn’t really focus on the sexual side of our relationship because we can’t do anything since I don’t have a vaginal opening,” the graphic designer explained.
“But I am looking forward to having a sexual relationship. I’m not sure if I want to wait until marriage, but I think having that option there is a lot more comforting.”
Down the line, Moats would love to have a family and a biological child.
“If that doesn’t work . . . because sometimes surrogacy doesn’t work, then I hope to adopt,” she told Bancroft TV.
You can contribute to Kaylee’s GoFundMe page now and you can read its description/mission statement below:
My name is Amanda Moats, and I am writing this for my sister Kaylee Moats, who has been diagnosed with a rare condition called MRKH (Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser Syndrome).
We received this crushing news in the doctor’s office when she was 18 years old, after never having a menstrual period. After having a MRI completed, the doctor determined that she did not have a uterus, cervix, vagina or vaginal opening.
As you can imagine, it was hard to process all of this information and we were all heartbroken.
As a sister, there was nothing worse than getting that phone call and knowing that my sister’s dreams for her life were changed so drastically in an instant, with nothing I or anyone else could do to make it better.
Kaylee will never be able to carry her own children. The dreams we had of raising families together are going to look a little different than we had initially planned.
This diagnosis raises a lot of fears, concerns, and insecurities in Kaylee about her identity and her future.
The options of surrogacy and adoption give her some hope but she will never be able to carry her own children.
After receiving the news, she decided to focus on school and address the problem later on when she was ready.
The family is hoping to raise $ 15,000, and Kaylee’s sister concludes her post as follows:
We would be forever grateful for anything you can donate. No amount is too small.
Thank you for getting Kaylee one step closer to her goal and allowing her to have a brighter and happier future.
