If you thought the Eliot Spitzer scandal and the special counsel investigating Russian election attacks couldn’t get any more interesting, you’d be wrong. The two are coming together as Robert Mueller’s special counsel interviewed Kristin Davis, the “Manhattan Madame” herself, according to a report that came out last week.
Sources speaking with CNN confirmed that Davis met for an interview with the special counsel last Wednesday.
Davis caught the attention of the special counsel because of her time spent as a business associate of Roger Stone, according to The New York Post.
Stone told CNN in a statement that “Kristin Davis is a long time friend and associate of mine. I am the Godfather to her 2-year-old son. She knows nothing about Russian Collusion, WikiLeaks collaboration or any other impropriety related to the 2016 election which I thought was the subject of this probe. I understand she appeared voluntarily. I am highly confident she will testify truthfully if called upon to do so.”
Stone has popped up in filings by the special counsel, though no charges have been filed against him that are publicly known at least. While the filings tend to strongly indicate Stone’s identity without actually naming him, Stone himself has come forward and admitted that he was being referenced. He most notably admitted to being in contact with hacker Guccifer 2.0, which was actually just a front for a sophisticated Russian military operation to wage a massive disinformation warfare campaign on the United States.
Davis is probably best known for her prostitution convictions related to the scandal that brought down the former governor.
The Jewish Voice has been reporting on all of the special counsel developments, including the latest developments in the back-and-forth between the special counsel and the president’s counsel as they negotiate the terms to a potential interview Trump would sit down for with Mueller. President Donald Trump’s attorney said recently that Trump will agree to answer questions from special counsel Robert Mueller about Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and whether the president obstructed justice by trying to thwart the investigation.
“The odds are against it, but I wouldn’t be shocked, because he wants to do it,” Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said of the president in a CNN interview.
Giuliani said, however, that if Trump does sit for an interview, he would only agree to answer questions about whether his campaign colluded with Russia to help him win, not questions, except in a very limited way, about obstruction.
Trump has for months said there was “no collusion” between his campaign aides and Russia and that as president he did not attempt to block Mueller’s probe.
Trump has been using Twitter even more aggressively recently to try discrediting law enforcement and the special counsel. He accused the prosecutor of undisclosed “conflicts of interest” involving him, “including the fact that we had a very nasty & contentious business relationship.”
