One Stormy Daniels confidant who knew of her alleged affair with President Trump is a gay photographer whose hubby supported Hillary Clinton.
Keith Munyan, a 56 -year-old shutterbug in Los Angeles, was listed as one of four people in Daniels’ nondisclosure arrangement as having “confidential information” about the alleged tryst between the porn starring and the future commander in chief.
Indeed, Munyan was eavesdropping in 2006 when Trump offered to give Daniels a condominium, The New York Times reported.
Munyan didn’t return messages attempting remark. But his husband, J.D. Barrale, said the 38 -year-old Daniels is like their daughter.
” Stormy is household to us ,” Barrale told The Daily Beast.” We enjoy her. I’m hoping at one point in time she’ll be able to come forward with what her experience has been .”
Also named in the” shush arrangement” is Angel Ryan, revealed to be Jessica Drake, the porn actress who accused Trump of attaining unwanted sexual advances toward her at the same Lake Tahoe golf tournament where the president fulfilled Daniels. Drake is a client and friend of Munyan, according to the photog’s social media posts.
In January, Drake’s publicist revealed to The Daily Beast that Drake was not allowed to discuss Trump because of her own nondisclosure agreement.
Mike Mosny, Daniels’ ex-husband, and Gina Rodriguez, her director, were also listed as having intel on Trump prior to Daniels signing the non-disparagement arrangement.
Rodriguez–a former adult actress became publicist–is now being represented by Daniels’ lawyer and has declined to comment on the NDA, according to The Washington Post . The day before the lawsuit dropped, she told The Associated Press that” everything is off now, and Stormy is going to tell her narrative .”
Mosny has said that Trump and Daniels were in close contact after meeting at the Tahoe tournament. An October 2016 part by The Smoking Gun notes that at the time Daniels satisfied Trump, she was living with Mosny; they would later marry( and then undergo a contentiousdivorce ). Mosny told the site that Trump would call Daniels at their home and she’d put the calls on speakerphone; and that he invited the actress to several events, including the launch of Trump Vodka. When would like to know whether Daniels and Trump had been intimately involved, Mosny said he was ” not under the impression ,” adding,” it would be surprising, but not shocking .”
For Munyan’s part, Barrale said his husband has photographed Daniels for 15 -plus times. They satisfied during a photoshoot in Los Angeles and have been friends ever since. Indeed, Munyan hit the adult actress and director’s 2007 wall calendar.
The LGBTQ activists live on a ranch with mares, Dalmatians, and one rabbit. They share a love of animals with Daniels, who keeps ponies, too.
” That girl knows how to ride a horse ,” Barrale said.
According to Rolling Stone , Daniels is a nationally ranked equestrian who last year injured her back in a show-jumping accident.
Daniels doesn’t speak to her mothers, but she calls Munyan her father, Rolling Stone reported.
Barrale declined to comment on the alleged Trump affair but said Munyan knew he was included in the nondisclosure arrangement. When asked what Daniels was going through, Barrale said,” I can’t say a word on that .”
” She’s very smart. She’s a great friend. She’s avoided all the pitfalls the entertainment industry can offer a young woman and[ has] come out with her head and heart intact ,” Barrale said in telephone calls Friday.
Still, Barrale and his husband don’t appear to be big fans of Trump.
In July of 2017, Munyan reposted a meme on Instagram of a soldier stillness by rainbow videotape.” Is this a Man or a Woman? Does it Matter? Did they serve this country? Protect Transgender rights ,” the image declared.
The post’s text stated, in part,” Our chairwoman is a genuine moron and he will go down in history as such” and included hashtags #transequality and #dumptrump.
On Jan. 21, 2017, Munyan reposted images supporting the Women’s March in D.C. One post had raised, manicured fists and included the hashtag #imwithher.
Another featured the crowds at the march.” There were more people at the National Mall for the @WomensMarch On Washington than attended Trump’s inauguration ,” read the post, which use hashtags #AddHerName and #hillaryclinton.
Barrale’s social media is still much cutting.
In February 2016, Barrale posted artwork of a nude–and poorly endowed–president.” Teenie Weenie Donald Trump, the biggest JackAss on countries around the world, if this is the best the Republicans can do, well … #useless #phoney #wasteoftime #karmawillgetyou ,” Barrale wrote.
Meanwhile, in May 2017, Barrale was quoted in a Los Angeles Times reader poll on Trump’s first 100 days in office. Seventy-five percent of participants committed the president an “F” grade, and Barrale was one of them.
” Without a uncertainty, the Trump Presidency has been the worst moment in recent U.S. history ,” Barrale told the Times .” The sham of calling “whats going on in” Washington , D.C. the Democratic Process boggles the head. The saddest part is on a personal level, family and friend relationships are being destroyed by our changes .”
Barrale, who records display donated $242 to Clinton’s campaign, said he didn’t want to coloring Daniels’ story with his political leanings.
” We probably don’t fit the mold of a typical Trump supporter in any way, shape, or form ,” Barrale told The Daily Beast, before quipping,” I’m sure the Trump campaign will not be asking me for a gift .”
Daniels filed a suit Tuesday claiming that the ” hush arrangement ,” negotiated weeks before the 2016 general elections and resulting in a $130,000 payout to the actress, was invalid because Trump never signed it.
And because Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, spoke publicly about the payoff, Daniels claims he breached their contract.
Cohen personally wired the hush money to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. The lawyer use his Trump Organization email to negotiate the bargain and facilitate the transfer of funds, NBC News reported Friday.
The revelation appears to contradict Cohen’s claims that “[ n] either the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party” to the pay.
Daniels’ suit, are presented in Los Angeles County, included a copy of the settlement agreement.
The contract demanded the porn starring give Trump any “property” — which could include video images, still images, and text messages–related to him.
On Tuesday, Seth Meyers dug into the contract speech and concluded,” So we are looking at the very real potential that Donald Trump sent Stormy Daniels a dick pic .”
” Can you even imagine ?” the late-night host said.” Oh, you can, and that’s why you’re making those dreadful interferences. It would look like a flaming-hot Cheeto sitting on a Brillo pad .”
