Stormy Daniels is cooperating with federal investigators, according to a source familiar with the investigation.
The source said federal investigators are looking into the nondisclosure deal and subsequent payment made by President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to the porn star who is now suing Trump over the 2016 hush agreement.
The federal probe was described by the source as extensive and aggressive, and a sizable team is working on the effort, the source added.
Daniel's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tweeted about her cooperation with the FBI on Tuesday, while also making a dig at Cohen referencing the raid.
Michael Avenatti ✔ @MichaelAvenatti My client @stormydaniels and I will fully cooperate with any search for the truth regarding the threats, cover-up and lies concerning the NDA and $130k payment. Unlike others, we don't require the presence of the fine members of the FBI in order to speak honestly. #basta
"We were contacted by various attorneys from the government who are looking into this," he said on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360."
"We're going to cooperate fully. We're going to be as user friendly as possible. We're going to respect the process. We understand the seriousness of this. This took on a whole 'nother level within the last 48 hours."
