Move over, Russia. Step aside, Israel. There’s yet another “collusion” narrative attached to Trump, and this time, it’s coming from Stormy Daniels:

More from NBC News:
The filing in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday alleges that Beverly Hills lawyer Keith Davidson “hatched a plan” and “colluded” with Trump attorney Michael Cohen to get the adult film actress to go on Fox News a few months ago and falsely deny she had an affair with Trump more than a decade ago. Cohen even referred to Davidson as “pal” in one text cited in the complaint.
The lawsuit against Davidson and Cohen also claims that Trump was aware the two attorneys were communicating and coordinating for his benefit — unbeknownst to Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford.
The suit further accuses Davidson of breaking client confidentiality and tipping off Cohen that Clifford was about to switch to a new lawyer and announce in court papers that she’d had sex with Trump and signed a $130,000 agreement to keep quiet about it just before the 2016 election.
