The federal probe into hush money paid during the 2016 campaign to cover up former President Donald Trump’s alleged flings with sex workers Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal appears to have gone cold, according to sources who spoke to the Associated Press and The Post.

Trump is no longer shielded from prosecution by the presidency. Still, the Manhattan-based case that sent his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to prison — which referred to Trump as the “Individual-1” allegedly involved in the payments — is not currently being pursued, multiple law enforcement and legal sources said.

One lawyer went so far as to say that the investigation is “dead,” adding that prosecutors have returned certain collected evidence in the case.Cohen was charged with skirting campaign-contribution rules by arranging six-figure payments to Daniels, a porn star, and McDougal, a former Playboy model, to keep them quiet.

Still, it will live on in the public eye. On Tuesday, Cohen will interview Daniels on his podcast. “I’m not done with his orange ass,” Daniels tweeted Saturday.
