According to Slate reporter Jacob Weisberg, who interviewed Stormy Daniels prior to the election about the alleged relationship she had with President Donald Trump, she is to be believed.
“She led me to believe that what she was telling me — she was holding back the kind of crown jewels,” he explained about their interview. “That she had details and specifics that would make the story more salacious and more interesting. She did share evidence. She said, while I have the personal phone — cell phone number of Keith Schiller, Trump’s bodyguard, this is how I was supposed to get in touch with him. She had a lot of corroborating details. She wasn’t holding back on that.”
She did not, however, mention that she had photos or videos at the time.
“But, I would say this,” he continued. “In the question of should we believe that what she’s saying or is going to say is likely to be true? I think her credibility is very good.”
He said that he talked to her in the fall after she’d spoken to In-Touch magazine more than five years prior. The details from that transcript match up with what she told Weisberg.
“I think she’s been totally consistent since then. So, if you have to ask who should we believe, probably the porn star or the president, the porn star has a lot of credibility. The president lies all the time. He admitted lying this week about something different, about trade with Canada but one of them has credibility and it’s not Donald Trump and it’s not Michael Cohen.”

‘I don’t care’: Watch Kamala Harris shut down Chris Hayes for asking a dumb question about Trump
Sen. Kamala Harris shut down MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes during a post-debate interview on Tuesday evening.
Hayes questioned Harris about her call for Twitter to follow their terms of service and kick President Donald Trump off of the platform.
"Do you think he puts people’s lives in danger when he targets them in tweets?" Hayes asked.
"Absolutely," Harris replied.
"Do you think he knows that?" Hayes asked.
"Does it matter?" Harris replied.
"The fact is he did it. The fact is that he is irresponsible, he is erratic," she explained. "He is like a 2-year-old with a machine gun."
Democrats blast Trump and demand his impeachment at CNN debate
Democratic White House hopefuls united in searing condemnation of Donald Trump during their fourth debate Tuesday, saying the president has broken the law, abused his power, and deserves to be impeached.
From the opening moments, most of the dozen candidates on stage launched fierce broadsides against Trump over the Ukrainian scandal at the heart of the impeachment inquiry.
"The impeachment must go forward," said Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is neck and neck with former vice president Joe Biden at the head of the 2020 nominations race.
"Impeachment is the way that we establish that this man will not be permitted to break the law over and over without consequences," she thundered.
Here are 3 winners and 4 losers from the CNN/NYT Democratic presidential primary debate
Twelve Democrats took to the stage Tuesday night for yet another debate in the party's 2020 president primary hosted by CNN and the New York Times.
After only ten candidates qualified for the previous debate, an additional two — Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and wealthy donor and former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer — made it to the stage this round for an even more crowded event.
The candidates discussed a range of important policy issues, but since the format was a debate, and they're all competing for the same nomination, it is ultimately most critical who won and who lost the night. Here are three winners and four losers — necessarily a subjective assessment, of course — from the debate:
