In less than 24 hours, Stormy Daniels has raised over $100,000 in her quest to fight Donald Trump and the non-disclosure agreement she signed just months before the 2016 election. The porn star, who confessed to her affair with the politician in an explosive interview with In Touch, launched a crowdfunding page to help with her legal fees.
On the Crowd Justice page, Stormy (real name: Stephanie Clifford) explained what she hoped to achieve with the money she raised. "I am attempting to speak honestly and openly to the American people about my relationship with now President Donald Trump, as well as the intimidation and tactics that he, together with his attorney Michael Cohen, have used to silence me," she wrote.
She went on to explain how she filed a lawsuit against the POTUS and his attorney to invalidate the NDA and revealed how the Donald did not respond to her offer to return the $130,000 she was paid to remain silent. The money donated will be used for attorneys' fees, out-of-pocket expenses associated with arbitration, and damages she may be awarded if she speaks out and loses.
"I am more fortunate than many, many people in this country. And for that I am grateful," she added. "But unfortunately, I do not have the vast resources to fight Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen alone. Thank you for supporting me." According to Stormy's attorney, she will donate any extra cash to charity. Fingers crossed it's a shark charity.
This fundraiser could explain why rumors are circulating that Stormy is preparing to spill even more details on her affair with the former Apprentice host in an upcoming interview on 60 Minutes — including how Trump likes to be dominated in the bedroom. "I’m told that in her 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper, Daniels suggests that Trump, how to say this, likes it when women aren’t nice to him, treat him in perhaps denigrating ways," Josh Marshall wrote on the political website Talking Points Memo. "I think that would be very much off-brand for Trump. It also puts in sharper relief why he and his lawyer seem to be fighting so hard to keep Daniels’ story under wraps." This story needs to be heard!
At the time of publishing, Stormy has raised $120,359 and counting. Who's donating?
