Five Key Takeaway of Stormy Daniels’ testimony at Donald Trump’s trial

Five Key Takeaway of Stormy Daniels' testimony at Donald Trump's trial

Ms. Daniel took the witness stand on the 13th day of Trump’s trial. She spent almost five hours in a Manhattan, New York courtroom, counting the days she was with Trump in 2006.

Trump, who is under prosecution charges, has not pleaded guilty to the charges that he falsified business records to cover up his former lawyer’s $130,000 payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, for her silence before the 2016 election.

Here are the Five Key Takeaway of Stormy Daniels’ testimony at Donald Trump’s trial:

  • Ms. Daniels shared that she met Mr. Trump at a golf event and she accepted the dinner invitation after her publicist said, “What could possibly go wrong?” Moving ahead, she agreed that she went on a dinner with him and still remembers that when she arrived at his hotel suite, she found Trump in Pyajamas and asked him to change.

Further, they had a conversation and discussed topics like the po*n industry, including residuals, unions, and testing for se***al transmitted diseases.

They also talked about Mr. Trump’s family, including his daughter, whom he compared to Ms. Daniels.

Mr. Trump also mentioned about his wife that he and his wife did not sleep in the same room and suggested that Ms. Daniels could appear on “The Apprentice,” she said.

She further added that after emerging from the bathroom, she found Mr. Trump partially undressed. She stated that the se***al encounter was consensual, but she felt there was a power of “imbalance” in the situation.

He said that Trump’s actions could intimidate the witness, Ms. Daniels, and asked Mr. Trump’s lawyers to talk to his client. “You need to speak to him,” “I won’t tolerate that,” he said.

  • Further, the prosecutors questioned Ms. Daniels about a statement she made in 2018 where she denied the se***al encounter. Ms. Daniels clarified that she did not want to sign the statement and that it was untrue. Defense lawyers tried to undermine Ms. Daniels’s credibility as a witness.

One of them, Susan Necheles, alleged that Ms. Daniel was attempting to extort money from Mr. Trump to which Ms. Daniels strongly denied this accusation by replying “False.”

  • Before the hearing started on Tuesday morning, Trump expressed frustration with Ms. Daniels in a social media post, suggesting that his lawyers had insufficient time to prepare for a new witness. The post was later taken down, possibly due to concerns about violating the gag order.

During the first half of his trial, Trump maintained a sour expression and continuously whispered to his lawyers. However, in the afternoon, he returned to his habit of closing his eyes, even during a combative cross-examination.

  • Once again, Ms. Necheles confronted Ms. Daniels about her feelings towards Trump, suggesting she harbored hatred towards him and asking if she wanted him to go to jail. Ms. Daniels responded, “I want him to be held accountable.”

Additionally, Ms. Necheles questioned Ms. Daniels about making money by claiming to have had s*x with Mr. Trump, to which Ms. Daniels responded, “I have been making money by telling my story.”

Further, she added, “It has also cost me a lot of money.”

The next stand of Ms. Daniels for cross-examination is set to continue on Thursday.
