Stormy Daniels recently revealed that she will testify if asked to give evidence against former President Donald Trump in an astonishing interview with Piers Morgan.
Former President Donald Trump recently stated that he expected to be arrested in connection with the investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney soon. He went on to call for protests as New York law enforcement prepares for a possible indictment. A photo of Donald Trump’s plane taking off to fly to New York for his arrest was also leaked.
The controversy sparked around the hush money payment that Cohen admitted that he made to Stormy Daniels during the fall of Trump’s 2016 White House bid to keep her from coming forward about an alleged affair she had with the then-candidate. Trump has denied the affair. Previously, TMZ reported that Daniels was experiencing the impact of Trump’s potential impending arrest and reportedly strengthening her security after receiving multiple threats.
The 44-year-old sat down with the TalkTV host as the former US President was this week hauled to court over alleged hush money he paid her in 2016.
The Republican has decried the case against him as a witch hunt – claiming it is politically motivated and led by the Democrats. He faces 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree.
Stormy’s 90 minute chat with Piers will be her first TV interview since Trump’s arrest on Tuesday – and it will be broadcast tonight on TalkTV in the UK and released on streaming service Fox Nation in the US.
Sun columnist Piers described the interview as “astonishing” – and said he was giving the former porn star a chance to tell her story “about the fling that may send President Trump to prison”.
And during their chat, Stormy vowed she will testify if Trump’s case goes to trial, saying she had “nothing to hide”.
“You weren’t asked to give evidence to the grand jury, but you may be asked to testify if this ends up as a trial. How do you feel about potentially testifying in a trial that will be watched around the world?” asks Piers.
Stormy replied: “Any time you’re up in the public eye it’s scary. I mean, used to get scared giving an oral book report in school, so it’s daunting, but I look forward to it.”
She went on: “I have nothing to hide. I’m the only one that has been telling the truth.”
“And, you know, you can’t shame me even more.”
“So I feel like if they don’t, it paints the picture that they know something about me that makes me you know, untrustworthy, or not reliable.”
“I think having them call me in and put me on the stand legitimises my story and who I am,” added Stormy.
However, Stormy told Piers that she does not believe Trump should face jail for his alleged crimes.
“Specific to my case, I don’t think that his crimes against me are worthy of incarceration,” she said.
But she explained that for other alleged crimes he is under investigation for – Trump could end up being sent to prison.
Trump is currently also under investigation for mishandling government documents, over allegations of fraud, and for attempting to interfere with the 2020 presidential election.
