During his time as former president Donald Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen was doing the most in order to silence Stormy Daniels. He even went to the lengths of arranging hush money to her which landed him in prison.
And now, like many other former allies of the former president, Cohen has turned his back on him too. Plus, he is broadcasting Stormy Daniels’ story which includes new details on her alleged encounters with the former president.
During the latest episode of his podcast “Mea Culpa”, Cohen interviewed Daniels in an attempt to ‘bury the hatchet’.
In their first conversation, Daniels told Cohen about the litigation that “My battle is just now starting. People are really upset, and they’re just going to get more pissed off at me.”
Cohen apologized to the porn star for the “needles pain” that he had put her though, when he arranged $130,000 to ‘bribe’ her to stay quiet during the presidential campaign of Donald Trump in 2016.
“Both of our stories will be forever linked with Donald Trump, but also with one another. Thanks for giving me a second chance.” Cohen said to Daniels.
When the scandal broke out, it turned Stormy Daniels into a household name, with being accused on capitalizing on her newfound fame by ding a cross country strip tour by the name of “Make America Horny Again”
Cohen was charged with skirting campaign contribution rules because he arranged the hush money payment to both Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal who is a Playboy model. Cohen pleaded guilty for both the counts as well as tax evasion, he was sentenced to 3 years of federal prison.
The “Mea Culpa” podcast is produced from Cohen’s Manhattan apartment where he is currently serving his remaining sentace. He was released (for the second time) back in July of 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the effort to stop the spread in prison.
“I got to go places I would never get to go. But overall, if I could just wave a magic wand and make everything go back to the way it was before, I would absolutely do that.” said Daniels because of her allegations.
She also claims that she is bracing herself for a “second wave” of controversy, which also includes a defamation lawsuit against Trump at the U.S Supreme Court
“I’ve already lost everything, so I’m taking it all the way.” She explained.
During the interview, graphic descriptions of the 2006 sexual encounter between Daniels and Trump are disclosed. She calls the encounter “the worst 90 seconds of my life, for sure, because it just made me hate myself.”
She said she did not feel “physically threatened” because she claims “I could definitely outrun him.”
Later, she stated that for the past years she did not say anything because she “didn’t remember” and it all came on after she say the movie “Bombshell”
“Bombshell” is a movie about the sexual harassment women underwent in meetings with former Fox News executive Roger Ailes.
“I didn’t say anything for years because I didn’t remember,” explains Daniels.
