Two weeks ago, Stormy Daniels was arrested while performing at Sirens strip club in Columbus, Ohio for mutual motorboating of a female strip club patron, who later turned out to be an undercover cop. Ohio has a very strict no-touching rule when it comes to strippers. The charges were dismissed 12 hours later, as Stormy isn’t an Ohio stripper, but a guest from out of town.
Not long after Stormy’s arrest, Michael Avenatti accused the Columbus Police Department of setting up a sting. A source told TMZ that Michael was on the right track, and that Stormy had been targeted. The Fayette Advocate now says they’ve been contacted by a whistleblower from the City of Columbus, who provided them with emails proving Stormy was set up.
According to the emails, which were sent between Columbus PD and VICE officers, law enforcement might have pre-planned Stormy’s arrest days before she came to town. The emails allegedly contained several news articles regarding Stormy’s appearance, pictures of her with Donald Trump, videos of her dancing, and a map to Sirens. I wonder what percentage of the cops in that email chain pretended like the last piece of information was helpful. “Wow thanks, I’ve definitely never been to Sirens before!”
The whistleblower claims that the majority of the emails were sent from an email account belonging to Columbus PD Detective Shana Keckley. She was one of the lead-arresting officers the evening Stormy was cuffed. The whistleblower writes:
“It is clear that Keckley and her fellow officers were there because of Stormy and only because of Stormy.”
The whistleblower adds that Columbus PD pulled Stormy into an investigation regarding human trafficking and prostitution the night she was arrested. The emails prove the investigating officers were lying, and that there was no such motive for her arrest. The whistleblower also provided the Advocate with an email from Detective Shana in which she bragged about having Stormy arrested by saying: “You’re Welcome!!!!! Thank me in person later.”
Not for nothing, it’s kind of important to remember that Ohio voted for Trump in the 2016 Presidential election (although Franklin County, home of Columbus, OH, appeared to favor Hillary Clinton). Still, it obviously sounds like the police were clearly on Team Trump, and were more than happy to target Stormy Daniels. Chalk that up to more evidence for Michael Avenati. He spoke to the Advocate over the phone yesterday, and called the emails “disturbing.” He’s also vowed to get to the bottom of this.
This is extremely disturbing. I intend on getting to truth and the bottom of who ordered @StormyDaniels arrested and why. It appears that I was correct when I stated it was politically motivated. #Basta https://t.co/Y95E5bxNG4

It’s nice to see Trump dragged into a little email scandal, especially after all those damn “BUT HER EMAILS” that happened during the election. Although I’m sure he doesn’t see it as a scandal. He probably heard that police were forwarding videos of a topless blonde, maps to a strip club, and pictures of his own face, and thought “Hey, sounds good – let me get in on some of that!”
