Stormy Daniels, the adult film “star” who got extra famous after breaking her NDA and alleging an affair with Donald Trump (YEARS before he became President) has been arrested in Columbus, Ohio.
Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, posted the matter via his Twitter account, saying that he believes the move is politically motivated and “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.”

Her attorney further commented: “She was arrested for allegedly allowing a customer to touch her while on stage in a non-sexual manner! Are you kidding me? They are devoting law enforcement resources to sting operations for this? There has to be higher priorities!!!”
“We will vehemently contest all charges,” Avenatti said. Her attorney spoke further with NBC News, saying that the arrest involved multiple undercover officers who were in the club while Daniels was performing. After her set, he says, a customer touched her and that’s when vice officers arrested her.
Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had sex with Trump in 2006, while he was married to Melania Trump. In 2016, on the eve of the presidential election, Michael Cohen, then Donald Trump’s personal attorney, used a shell company he had set up to pay Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her signing a nondisclosure agreement.
Daniels has said the agreement barred her from speaking publicly about her tryst with Trump and yet she did anyway? Can she even be trusted at this point?
Daniels has since then used every opportunity that has come her way to speak about the event and since then has become more popular than ever. Sure, it’s speculation, but it’s not hard to see why she would break such a contract whether or not the “tryst” happened.
