Emails from Trump attorney Joe Tacopina to Stormy Daniels turned over to the Manhattan DA, the report said

According to CNN, Stormy Daniels’ attorney has referred communications between his client and Joe Tacopina, Trump’s current personal attorney, to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office.

The footage, which neither CNN nor The Daily Beast have seen, reportedly dates back to 2018, when the adult film star was seeking legal representation.

Her current attorney, Clark Brewster, said he believes Daniels leaked confidential information in her emails to Tacopina and his firm. Tacopina denied to CNN that the actor’s confidential information was leaked to his office and said there was no conflict of interest as to an existing attorney-client relationship.

He also denied ever meeting or speaking to Daniels.

The report comes as Bragg prosecutors appear to be finalizing their investigation into Trump’s alleged hush money payment to Daniels as New York City braces for a possible indictment of the former president over the matter.

Trump has denied wrongdoing and earlier this month branded the Truth Social probe a “political witch hunt” seeking to bring down the by far leading candidate in the Republican Party.

It resurfaced earlier Tuesday that Tacopina, who began representing Trump in early 2023, had gone on to CNN years earlier to explain that the hush-moon agreement was “illegal.”

“This is an illegal agreement. It’s a scam if that’s actually the case,” Tacopina said in 2018. “It doesn’t pass the honesty test, and quite frankly, if that happened, we have a potential campaign finance problem.”

In a separate appearance on the network earlier this year, Tacopina, who hosts Don Lemon, also revealed he was in touch with Daniels when she was looking for an attorney. He added that he “can’t really speak about my impressions or conversations we had because there’s attorney-client privilege that even comes with counseling.”

Tacopina told CNN on Tuesday that his earlier comments “lacked clarity.” He explained that he invoked privilege during his Lemon appearance to get the presenter to drop his questions “because someone asked on Stormy Daniel’s behalf if I represented them and I didn’t do the matter wanted to discuss on TV. ”

“However, these circumstances in no way constitute an attorney-client relationship,” Tacopina said. Emails from Trump attorney Joe Tacopina to Stormy Daniels turned over to the Manhattan DA, the report said
