Stormy Daniels talks on CBS 60 Minutes to Anderson Cooper
Here’s the transcript of Stormy Daniel’s Interview with Anderson Cooper on CBS 60 Minutes. .
There is a 60 Minutes “Overtime” segment where Stormy Daniels explains why she went public. Then a second Overtime segment (each one is less than a minute) shows her attorney explaining how illegal campaign contributions may have happened.
The campaign contribution issue has a distant relation to an issue I have presented previously on other blogs, when back in 2005 there was controversy over whether unpaid political blogging could be seen as “contributions”, and played into an incident when I worked as a substitute teacher.
Stormy Daniels (Stephanie Gregory Clifford) has been an actress, screenwriter and director in the pornographic film business. On 2006 at Lake Tahoe, she says she had unprotected sex with Trump, whom she was not attracted to. (Who would be? This is hardly what Masters and Johnson had in mind in their 90s book "Heterosexuality".) In the ensuing years she would meet him again, but one day in Las Vegas got approached by a thug in a parking lot threatening her to remain silent.
She took the hush money right before the 2016 election to protect her daughter. That brings up the campaign contribution. The recent threats for a $20 million suit were converted.
