If you don’t know the story, Stormy Daniels was arrested at a strip club under a rarely enforced law for “groping” club members. The charges were immediately dropped because even under this obscure law, it does not apply to guests of the clubs. Meaning a guest performer can do all the things exotic dancers normally do.
Before the e-mails leaked, cops claimed they were at the club for another reason entirely.
Police said after the fact that they were at Sirens as part of an investigation of possible prostitution and human trafficking, and Daniels just happened to be there that night. Emails purportedly from the account of Vice Detective Shana Keckley, however, indicate otherwise.
The emails include several messages that Keckley appears to have sent to herself prior to Daniels’ performance. Among them are images and articles about the adult film star, including an article promoting her appearance at Sirens, and a map image featuring the location of the club.
Other emails, dated after Daniels’ arrest, refer specifically to how Keckley and other named officers arrested her.
“It is clear that Keckley and her fellow officers were there because of Stormy and only because of Stormy,” the unnamed whistleblower told The Advocate. “The emails definitely show that the police lied about it being a prostitution and human trafficking mission.”
I know there are other things happening right now...but this is a big fucking deal. People within law enforcement are targeting people who go against the president, and then lying to the public about it.
Hopefully we find out soon if the cops acted alone, or were instructed by someone within the Trump government.
