Well, here’s a story worth digging into.
To begin, former Trump mistress/porn star, Stormy Daniels released a composite sketch on The View of the man she claimed approached her in a parking lot and gave a not-so-thinly-veiled threat, regarding an interview she was about to give in 2011 about her affair with Donald Trump.

Daniels retold of the jarring event in March:
“I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter. Taking, you know, the seats facing backwards in the backseat, diaper bag, you know, getting all the stuff out. And a guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,’ ” Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told Anderson Cooper on CBS’s “60 Minutes” in March.
“And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone,” she continued.
So is that a threat that any of you would be freaked out about?
Of course it is.
I can’t think of anyone, especially a new mom, who wouldn’t be shaken up.
A report by Sparrow Media bears a freaky resemblance. It unwinds an FBI documents from a 2009 extortion investigation involving Donald Trump and a caller named “Carmine.”
Trump’s casino business had gone bankrupt and Trump Entertainment Resorts had defaulted on payments to investors to somewhere north of $1.25 BILLION.
For those keeping score, that’s almost half of what Trump is worth.
The law firm Stroock & Stroock & Lavan was handling the case on behalf of the investors. Kristopher Hansen was the lawyer in charge, and also the person who received the threatening call.
According to the Holmdel Township Police the threat specifically stated:
“My name is ‘Carmine’ I don’t know why you are f**king with Mr. Trump but if you keep f**king with Mr. Trump, we know where you live and we’re going to your house for your wife and kids.”
Apparently, “Carmine” wasn’t a student of bankruptcy law.
The FBI records show the call came in on February 18, 2009. Also, at the time of the investigation, Hansen suggested that he felt the caller was Trump’s bodyguard.
Other notes in the FBI documents gave the number that the call came from and show that the number was to a pay phone on 54th Street, across from the Ed Sullivan Theater, in New York.
How is that important?
It’s probably just a crazy coincidence that Donald Trump and his entourage were taping a segment inside the Ed Sullivan Theater for David Letterman’s show, at the time.
You can take these two stories a number of ways, but it really does seem to indicate a pattern.
And does that sketch look like a “Carmine” to you?
