Stormy Daniels says her phone records are going to HURT Trump after she handed them to her attorney – and insists she is going to have the last laugh
- Daniels spoke to prosecutors last week with Trump indictment looming
- She also said she provided phone records to her lawyer on Wednesday
- Details emerged as New York remains on a knife edge waiting for grand jury
Porn star Stormy Daniels is teasing that private information contained in her personal phone records could provide damaging information on former President Donald Trump, who faces potential indictment in Manhattan.
Daniels, who regularly uses Twitter to spar with her critics, responded to a post from a platform user who flagged a 2018 letter from former Trump fixer Michael Cohen denying he got reimbursed for payments to the porn star, who claimed she had an affair with Trump.
It contradicts statements Cohen has made publicly since the ‘hush’ money agreement with Trump became public. The poster asked if she was ‘still laughing’ and said she had ‘stopped tweeting obsessively’ about Trump, adding, ‘I’m sure you’re having the last laugh.’
‘I’m sure I will,’ she responded. ‘I’ve been handing over phone records to my attorney today (they’re gonna hurt!) and planning spring break activities with my kid. It was a wonderful day,’ she said, including a smiley face emoji.
The post came on a day when a grand jury that had been expected to meet was sent home, presumably ending the chance of a Trump indictment this week.

Trump had predicted he would be arrested Tuesday, which set off a swirl of speculation and media attention in New York.
Daniels has not gone before the grand jury, although Cohen has appeared multiple times.
Trump has repeatedly denied her claims of a sexual affair in 2006, although he acknowledged reimbursing Cohen for $130,000 he gave to her weeks before the Nov. 2020 elections.
The Manhattan district attorney is thought to be pursuing a case that the payment was misreported by Trump’s business as legal expenses.
New York remains on a knife edge as it waits for a grand jury to finish hearing evidence and deciding whether to hand down an indictment.
At the weekend, Trump said he expected to be arrested on Tuesday and called on supporters to protest — yet it looks likely that the week will pass without an indictment.
On Wednesday and Thursday it emerged that the jury was not hearing evidence in the case.
It has triggered speculation that District Attorney Alvin Bragg is struggling to convince the jury of his case.

‘They are having trouble convincing the jury to swallow the case. It’s a weak case and has caused divisions in the DA’s office,’ said a source.
Other reports suggested the DA’s office could be contemplating a change of strategy.
The grand jury meets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, but postponements are not unusual and jurors are warned to expect last-minute changes.
Either way it leaves the nation with a cliffhanger.
In the meantime, Bragg has hit back at Republicans for demanding testimony about his handling of the case.
The chairmen of three House committees sent a letter to Bragg on Monday seeking information about his role in the case.
In his response, Bragg’s legal counsel described the request as an ‘unlawful incursion into New York’s sovereignty.’
‘The letter only came after Donald Trump created a false expectation that he would be arrested the next day and his lawyers reportedly urged you to intervene,’ Leslie Dubeck wrote in the letter. ‘Neither fact is a legitimate basis for congressional inquiry.’
