Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Reveals Trump Verdict ‘Hit Her Hard’

12.07.2018. BRUSSELS, BELGIUM. Press conference of Donald Trump, President of United States of America, during NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) SUMMIT 2018. "

Adult film star Stormy Daniels has recently opened up about the effect that the recent hush money trial of Donald Trump has taken on her, with Daniels’ lawyer commenting last Friday that the verdict of Trump “hit her hard”. Stormy Daniels was one of many key witnesses in the recent business fraud trial of former President Trump, as well as being the main plaintiff in the case. The trial surrounded the allegations made by Daniels that the former President allegedly paid her $130,000 to silence her claims of a previous affair between the two during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Last week, Donald Trump was found guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business documents, making him the first former president ever to be convicted of a felony charge. 

Following the guilty verdict, Daniels’ lawyer Clark Brewster stated in a NewsNation interview with Elizabeth Vargas that he had told Daniels the outcome of the verdict, which hadn’t yet been reported to the media, in which Brewster said Daniels was “taken aback”.  Brewster continued by stating that multiple factors in the trial have taken their toll on Daniels, such as stress from the public, as well as the animosity building up to the final verdict. Brewster added that Daniels did not express happiness over the outcome but was more relieved that the trial was finally over. Brewster even added that Daniels was seemingly shocked by the outcome. 

Brewster further explained the stresses of Daniels during the trial, stating that the adult film star wore a bulletproof vest multiple times while coming to and from the Manhattan courthouse, which she did in fear of a radical Trump supporter wishing to do her harm given the circumstances surrounding the case. 

Former President Donald Trump now faces a sentencing date on July 11th, by the trial’s Judge Juan Merchan. The sentencing will take place in Manhattan a few days before the Republican National Convention.
