Joe Tacopina, a defense attorney, and who now represents Donald Trump, at one time prior to representing Trump, believed wholeheartedly that the Stormy Daniels saga was true. Although today his tune has obviously changed.
As per a report published by CNN, The former U.S. President Donald Trump’s defense attorney, Joe Tacopina, repeatedly speculated as a legal pundit that Trump’s alleged affair with adult actress Stormy Daniels did likely happened. Furthermore he speculated that the $130,000 payment made to Daniels merely days before the 2016 election could be seen as an in-kind campaign contribution, contradicting his recent legal and public defense of Trump.
Joe Tacopina, is representing Trump in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office investigation. Joe made the comments in 2018 as a prominent legal commentator – years before he would ultimately represent the former president in the case that may indict Trump.
In multiple appearances on CNN in the spring of 2018, Tacopina speculated that Trump had an affair with Daniels after she detailed their encounter and because “to me, you know it means it’s true because he hasn’t threatened to sue” nor did he tweet about it. He also said that as a lawyer, he would have advised Trump to admit to the affair and move on.
