Prosecutors are investigating the payment of hush money to an adult film star in 2016.
NEW YORK — Stormy Daniels met with prosecutors Wednesday at the request of the Manhattan district attorney’s office, her attorney said in a tweet, as the office continues its ongoing criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump’s role in hush money payments made to her near the end of the 2016 presidential campaign.
“Stormi has answered questions and has agreed to testify or for further investigation if needed,” her attorney, Clark Brewster, tweeted.

Daniels met with prosecutors, but a source familiar with the investigation declined to confirm to ABC News whether it was in person.
A spokesman for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg declined to comment.
Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, paid Daniels $130,000 in the final days of the 2016 presidential campaign to keep her quiet about an affair she claimed she had with Trump. The former president denied the connection, and his lawyers considered the funds to be extortion.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is considering whether to charge Trump with falsifying business records after the Trump Organization allegedly reimbursed Cohen and then wrote off the reimbursement as legal fees, sources told ABC News.
“Thank you to my wonderful attorney … for helping us in our continued fight for truth and justice,” Daniels tweeted Wednesday afternoon.
