So, is hiring a sleazeball lawyer / aspiring Democratic Presidential candidate to demand $130,000 from a dude you banged a decade ago in order not to go public with it extortion or not?
Stormy was talking about her affair in 2011. Trump didn't care at all until he was running for President, when he had Cohen pay her to stop talking. When did she "demand" any payment? And then it was off to the races with the dumbest crooks in the business between tweedle dee (Cohen) and tweedle dumb (Trump). It's hard to be "extortion" when you're proactively paying off women left and right all the time through your henchmen and AMI. Protip: if you need a "fixer" to constantly clean up your messes--it's probably not extortion.
Again, the intelligence goon squad was assembled prior to the extortion attempt, but keep playing.
He is basically acting as a bully to track down a source of a news article about him, which can only be:
You're not very good at this, but I can see how Trump, Cohen, and Pecker look like luminaries to you. How is the victim of a blackmail *in writing* the bully? But ultimately you claimed that Wapo does the same thing as AMI, so unless you have proof that Wapo has blackmailed people for anything, then you lied, and this conversation is done.
