Stormy Daniels Legal Fund Nears Milestone Guaranteed to Infuriate Trump
Stormy Daniels Crowdfunds For Legal Fees To Talk About Alleged Affair With Donald Trump
Adult film performer Stormy Daniels appears completely determined to take off the legal muzzle and tell the story about her reported relationship with Republican Donald Trump. And a new crowdfunding effort shows a lot of people are very interested in hearing her speak freely.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, recently started a crowdfund to help her with legal fees related to her lawsuit to void a nondisclosure agreement. And in just a short period of time, the fund is coming up on a symbolic milestone.

As of this writing, donations have added up to over $126,000. That’s just a few thousand dollars short of the $130,000 Daniels was paid by Trump’s lawyer to keep quiet about their alleged affair.
The actress notes she has been “threatened” with financial damages by people on Trump’s side if she speaks out.
Rather than agree that the NDA is invalid, thus allowing me to talk, Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen have instead attempted to hide the facts from the public using a bogus arbitration proceeding and have threatened me with millions of dollars in damages ($1M each time I speak out) if I tell the truth about what happened.
The lawsuit filed by Daniels suggests there are images and text messages potentially proving she had a relationship in 2006 with the reality star shortly after his wife gave birth.
Info regarding the situation continues to surface suggesting the alleged affair did take place. Radio host Bubba the Love Sponge Clem played clips of an interview he did with Daniels in 2007 in which he asked her to write down who she had slept with. Clem stated Daniels wrote down Trump’s name first but never said it out loud during the interview.
In addition to that revelation, CNN discovered a second lawyer from the Trump Organization had been involved with the payoff to Daniels. The news outlet notes this potentially contradicts a claim made by Michael Cohen.
…the new documents raise questions about Cohen’s previous insistence that “neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford,”.
It seems it will just be a matter of time before Stormy Daniels tells her story. And the people clamoring to hear it are proving just how bad they want it with their bank accounts. Maybe this effort will help expedite the process just a little more.
One has to wonder just how nervous those in the White House are getting at this point? We can only imagine how the notoriously thin-skinned Trump is taking this news…
