In an interview with the Daily Beast, adult film actress Stormy Daniels says she is waiting to hear from Congressional investigators taking a look at payments made to her through Donald Trump’s lawyer to keep quiet about their reported affair.
With lawmakers indicating they may not call the actress to speak before a congressional committee, Daniels confessed she is waiting for them.
Speaking with the Beast, Daniels explained she has been watching how the case against the president has been playing out.
“Things are in a lull, but shit is about to hit the fan again,” Daniels explained. “It comes in waves. A whole bunch of stuff happens, and then they schedule court dates and stuff is kind of quiet, but none of the cases are done. We’re just waiting for our next appearance.”
According to the Beast, “An appearance by Daniels before that [House Judiciary Committee] panel would undoubtedly supercharge public interest in Democrats’ oversight efforts, which are flagging after Robert Mueller’s investigation came to a conclusion and amid mixed messaging from the party on whether to start impeachment proceedings. But testimony from this particular witness—who is unique in combining a Mueller-level public profile with some inherently salacious subject matter—would also create a spectacle that Democrats fear could easily become an out-of-control circus.”
The adult actress also said that she has had to move after her home address was published, putting her and her 8-year-old daughter’s lives in danger.
“I left Dallas because I was worried about the news trucks outside my house. I thought her life was in danger, so that’s the main reason I stayed on tour all last summer,” Daniels said. “Every time I wasn’t advertised as being somewhere else, I had about 24 to 48 hours before people figured out I wasn’t scheduled to be somewhere, and my address got printed, so then they’d show up at my house and she couldn’t go ride her bike. People tried to take pictures of her.”

Rep AOC helped Bernie Sanders turn out ‘the largest crowd drawn by any candidate’: report
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) helped Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) turn out a huge crowd at a campaign rally in New York City.
Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, officially endorsed the Vermont senator at the event.
"Bernie Sanders has a crowd of 25,872 this afternoon at his Queens rally, according to the security company handling the event, Contemporary Services Corp. That would make this event, his first since his heart attack 18 days ago, the largest crowd drawn by any candidate," Buzzfeed News correspondent Ruby Cramer reported.
Florida Republican said he may vote to impeach Trump — then announced he was retiring from Congress
Yet another Republican announced they would not be running for re-election in 2020.
"Representative Francis Rooney, Republican of Florida, who has refused to rule out voting to impeach President Trump, said on Saturday that he would not be seeking re-election," The New York Times reported. "Rooney, who first won his district in southwest Florida in 2016, said on Fox News that he believed he had accomplished what he wanted to do in Congress and had grown frustrated with aspects of legislative service."
America is being held hostage by a bloody madman — and he’s in the White House
These are the most frightening words Trump has uttered since becoming president:
“Sometimes you have to let them fight a little while. Sometimes you have to let them fight like two kids. Then you pull them apart.”
He said this at a campaign rally, naturally. In Texas, naturally. He tossed out the remark like just another chunk of red meat, so we can assume he meant what he said, because that’s when Trump tells us who he is, when he’s standing before an adoring crowd and he goes “off script.”
Trump’s entire presidency has been “off script,” but it’s telling when his excursions into the la-la land of his mind are this specific. He was speaking of the Kurds and the Turks, who have been engaged in bloody battles along the border between Syria and Turkey ever since Trump effectively gave Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan the green light to invade Syria on Oct. 5. Kurdish forces have already lost as many as 11,000 since they began fighting ISIS alongside U.S. forces in Iraq and Syria. Now hundreds more have died, and thousands may yet lose their lives. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced and are refugees. It’s a bloody disaster that Trump refers to as a fight between children on a playground.
