According to a report from Buzzfeed that isn’t being denied by the White House, Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen is trying to get an injunction against the airing of a Stormy Daniels’ interview on 60 Minutes.
President Trump’s lawyers are looking at options to stop CBS’s “60 Minutes” from airing an interview with adult film star Stormy Daniels, who allegedly had an affair with Trump in 2006, according to BuzzFeed News.
“We understand from well-placed sources they are preparing to file for a legal injunction to prevent it from airing,” a source told BuzzFeed on Saturday.
Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti shared the Buzzfeed report on Twitter.
Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen referred Buzzfeed’s questions to his own attorney, who did not confirm the report.
The Hill has reached out to the White House and CBS News for comment.
The interview with Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is set to air at an unspecified date in the future. On Thursday, a source familiar with the program told The Hill that Stormy Daniels will be on 60 Minutes on a future date but won’t be on this Sunday.
This is from her lawyer:
I think I’d put my money on Stormy’s lawyer. He seems a little more sharp than Michael Cohen.
The attorney for Stormy Daniels: "It's absolutely laughable" to claim the President was unaware of the attempts made by his personal attorney to cover up Trump's alleged affair with her https://t.co/RPYWcIyCLi

Well that makes a whole lot of sense given their past actions. I guess I’m wondering why they would block it since everyone says no one cares about his infidelities. If she’s lying then he can sue her afterward right? Wait a minute… maybe there’s a different reason they’re trying to block it… hmmmm…. nope can’t think of anything!
