Adult film actress Stormy Daniels (Stephanie Clifford) was arrested tonight in Columbus Ohio, after performing an adult act at a strip club. according to her attorney, Michael Avenatti.
The act, which strongly implies if not shows bestiality, cannot be further described nor pictured her in line with standards imposed by our advertisers, including Google.
Stormy Daniels, once kind of a marginal porn actress, has become famous for opposing Donald Trump. She says she had an extramarital affair with him ten years ago. She also says that during the 2016 campaign, the President's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000 for her silence on Trump's indiscretion. If true, that all would amount to a campaign law violation, at a minimum.
Michael Avenatti, who has represented Daniels, delivered the message in a Twitter post in the earlier hours of Thursday ET. In that tweet, the attorney made claims of political motivations, and said "it reeks of desperation."
Just rcvd word that my client @StormyDaniels was arrested in Columbus Ohio whole performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs. This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges. #Basta
