Vindication.

Stephanie Clifford, the adult film actress better known as Stormy Daniels, had a rather short and sweet reaction to the news that Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer, had pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts––five charges of felony tax evasion, two counts of campaign finance violations, and one count of bank fraud––in a deal struck with federal prosecutors.

The news that Cohen had implicated the president in a scheme to unlawfully silence two women, including Clifford, without whose very public efforts Cohen would likely never have been charged, sent shock waves around the world.

“How ya like me now?!” she wrote.

It was the moment of vindication Clifford had been waiting for, having suffered through months of having her character impugned and her story discredited, and her glee––and undoubtful relief––was infectious.

President Trump has responded to the news by leveling attacks against Cohen, whom he has for months characterized as disloyal. In two separate tweets, he tore into Cohen while praising Paul Manafort, his former campaign manager who on Tuesday was convicted of eight criminal counts by a grand jury in Virginia.

There was no mention from the president of Cohen’s admission that he violated campaign finance laws to pay off Clifford and former Playboy model Karen McDougal at Trump’s behest.

Cohen had found himself at the center of the questions regarding a payment Clifford received from him as part of the non-disclosure agreement to keep her from discussing a sexual encounter with Trump back in 2006, while he was married to his current wife, Melania, and just a few months after Melania gave birth to their son, Barron.

A separate lawsuit filed by Clifford contends that Cohen initiated a “bogus arbitration” hearing against her without notifying her beforehand, and a copy of the restraining order against Clifford confirms that the judge made a “one-party” ruling that did not require her to be notified.
