Stormy Daniels’ scheme to cash in during the Trump presidency just took a major hit.
On Friday, a California judge granted a 90-day delay in proceedings in Daniels’ lawsuit against President Trump.
The worst thing that ever could have happened for Stormy Daniels was the raid against Michael Cohen.
When the FBI stormed his office and hotel room, it all but assured the porn star that her case would be put on the backburner.
Because of the pending federal case against Cohen, he informed the judge in the Daniels case he would be taking the fifth in the Daniels case.
The FBI seized “various electronic devices and documents in my possession, which contain information relating to the $130,000 payment to Plaintiff Stephanie Clifford at the center of this case, and my communication with counsel, Brent Blakely, relating to this action,” Cohen stated.
As far as has been reported thus far, the feds are somehow trying to link the Daniels payment to some type of campaign violation by Cohen, but that is pure speculation at this point.
Daniels NOT Happy
The delay in the case really hurts Daniels.
She and her attorney want to get this into the courts ASAP, so she is able to cash in on her claim.
When the judge announced the decision, Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, expressed his displeasure via Twitter.
Avenatti tweeted, “While we certainly respect Judge Otero’s 90 day stay order based on Mr. Cohen’s pleading of the 5th, we do not agree with it.”
He continued, “We will likely be filing an immediate appeal to the Ninth Circuit early next week. Justice delayed in justice denied.”
In addition to his tweets. Avenatti took some cheap shots in the media at both Cohen and Trump.
His goal was to try to make them both look as though they were hiding something, but he came off as a liberal whiner and just embarrassed himself.
It would be no surprise to see this delayed again if the feds continue to pursue their case against Cohen.
If that happens, it could literally be years before Daniels sees her lawsuit come before a judge.
