There is not much clarification on the matter, but it seems it is a respond to something Cohen said or did to her earlier.
The developments of today will permit us to have the stay lifted in the civil case & should also permit us to proceed with an expedited deposition of Trump under oath about what he knew, when he knew it, and what he did about it. We will disclose it all to the public.

Here is how it begin , in June 2006, Ronan Farrow’s, New Yorker’s journalist exposed that McDougal had an affair with Donald Trump. Storm revealed also revealed that she had an affair with Donald Trump.
Later in January 2018 , Wall Street Journal reported that Cohen paid off Daniels a huuuuge sum of (pun intended) $130,000 in 2016, just a month earlier of presidential election, in order to stop her discussing details of affair.
According to Michael Avenatti , this is in violation of Federal Marketing Campaign Regulations, and thus everyone with prior consent to this action in Trump’s Campaign is liable.
