Now, however, it has mushroomed into something more serious, and many legal experts believe the matter may now be under review by Robert Mueller, who leads the criminal investigation into the President and his associates.
When the Trump campaign allegedly learned Daniels was due to tell all to the media, their attorney negotiated a secret deal to pay the porn queen $130,000 to keep quiet. That contract included a damages clause stating that Daniels would pay $1 million in penalty to Trump if she broke her word.
Nonetheless, the scandal became news recently, and Daniels has sued to have the agreement voided because Trump never signed the document.
Two issues have come to light in the whole reporting, however, that could constitute a crime committed by Trump and at least one of his associates. Trump's lawyer paid the $130,000 out of his personal funds, but then allegedly was reimbursed by the campaign.
If true, then that payment violates federal law. That's a civil matter, meaning the involved parties would not be charged with a crime.
The complex conspiracy to hide all traces of the payment to avoid appearance of breaking the law could be considered a crime. If Trump participated or directed this conspiracy, then he too may have committed a crime.
A second matter has come to light that points to a possible crime -- Trump's lawyer presented to the media a letter allegedly signed by Daniels, stating that no affair ever took place. The only problem is -- Daniels says she never saw the letter and claims it's a forgery.
If so, if more than one person was involved in creating a forged letter, that could be both further evidence of conspiracy and another count of conspiracy that could be charged. Did Trump know about any forgery and, if so, was it done at his direction?
The Stormy scandal is not dying away -- it's actually building in intensity. Daniels' lawsuit to void the contract is continuing, and she's scheduled to tell all in an interview on television's "60 Minutes" this coming Sunday.
Definitely stay tuned for this one.
