How has the story moved from Russiagate to Stormygate? What is it that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has on his mind about a possible sexual angle to the Russia collusion probe? Did the President have a rendezvous with Stormy Daniels? Is that important? There is something deeper going on and here is some speculation as to what it is.

The bank used by President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer to wire $130,000 to a former adult-film actress flagged the transaction as suspicious and reported it to the Treasury Department, according to a person familiar with the matter…
City National Bank launched an internal inquiry of its own about the payment a year after [Daniels’s lawyer] received the funds in his client-trust account there, the person said. City National sought information about the source of funds wired to Mr. Davidson’s account, the person…..
