Release of ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape Was Impetus for Buying Stormy Daniels’ Silence

President Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen was on the fence about buying the silence of a former adult-film star who says she had sex with Trump until the infamous NBC “Access Hollywood” tape was released and showed Trump bragging about groping women.

A day after the recording was made its rounds in the media, Cohen expressed a desire to strike a deal with Sunny Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, The Wall Street Journal reports, citing a person familiar with a conversation between Cohen and the dancer’s representative.

A few days later, Clifford signed a nondisclosure agreement, about a month after initially resisting the idea.

According to federal prosecutors, the “Access Hollywood” tape was the impetus for buying Clifford’s silence.

Prosecutors are investigating whether the deal was a violation of campaign finance laws that require the disclosure of in-kind contributions.
