Stephanie Clifford, the adult film actress known as Stormy Daniels, is planning to meet with federal prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York on Monday in preparation for possible grand jury testimony related to the $130,000 in alleged hush money paid by Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, shortly before the 2016 presidential election, a figure familiar with the investigation has told the New York Law Journal.

The payment, in exchange for Clifford’s silence about an alleged 2006 sexual liaison with Trump, is one of the areas of interest for Manhattan prosecutors currently investigating Cohen. According to reports, the April search warrant executed on Cohen’s home and offices was part of an investigation into possible campaign finance violations, on top of bank and wire fraud.
