NEW DELHI: Stormy Daniels’ attorney disclosed that the adult film actress wore a bulletproof vest during Donald Trump’s hush money trial due to concerns about potential harm. Clark Brewster, representing Daniels, informed CNN that the trial proceedings had deeply affected her, leading her to tears the night before her testimony.
“She wore a bulletproof vest daily until arriving at the courthouse,” Brewster said.”She was paralyzed with fear – not of taking the stand or telling her story, but what might some nut might do to her. And I’m genuinely concerned about it as well..”
Over two days last week, Daniels testified for over eight hours, divulging details of her alleged 2006 affair with former American President Donald Trump, which he denies. Trump has been on trial since April 15, facing 34 counts of falsifying business records related to payments made to Daniels before the 2016 election to prevent her from making allegations about their affair.
The legal dispute escalated when Trump’s attorney, Susan Necheles, questioned Daniels during cross-examination to challenge her credibility. “This has been your profession for over 20 years, involving writing, acting, and directing adult films. You possess considerable experience in presenting fabricated narratives about sexual encounters as genuine, correct?”, Trump’s attorney had said.
Despite facing grueling cross-examination from Trump’s defense team, Daniels stood firm in defending her career in the adult entertainment industry.
This is not the first time Daniels has expressed fear over the hush money scandal. In 2018, she revealed feeling threatened by a stranger in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011, along with her infant daughter.
The trial proceeded this week with testimony from Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, who allegedly facilitated the $130,000 payment to Daniels. Cohen acknowledged his desire for Trump’s conviction in the case. During the intense cross-examination, Trump’s attorney, Todd Blanche, raised questions about Cohen’s social media activity, highlighting a post where Cohen said, “Trump belongs in a cage.” When directly asked if he wished for Trump to be convicted, Cohen responded affirmatively with “sure”, as reported by CNN.
The former Trump aide admitted to exerting pressure on individuals such as attorney Keith Davidson in 2018 to falsify information regarding deals with Karen McDougal and adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Cohen confessed to perpetuating these falsehoods out of loyalty to Trump and to shield him from scrutiny.
