(London) Stormy Daniels, the porn actress at the heart of the case that landed Donald Trump indicted, said she was “proud” to see the former US president face justice and “hopes” to be called to testify, in an interview with the British daily The Times published on Friday.
“It’s huge and amazing and I’m proud,” said 44-year-old actress, real name Stephanie Clifford, who took home $130,000 just before the 2016 presidential election to keep mum about her past encounter with Donald Trump.
It is in particular this payment, which had not been registered in his campaign accounts, which earned him a criminal charge, a historic first for a former president.
“The other side of the coin is that it will continue to divide people and lead them to fight,” added the one who claims to have had a sexual relationship with Donald Trump before his election in 2016, which he denies. .
“Whatever the result, it will lead to violence”, worries Stormy Daniels, who evokes the threats she has already started to receive since the announcement of the indictment of Donald Trump.
The actress, who spoke to the British newspaper from an unspecified location in the United States, said she was scared “for the first time in [her] life”.
She says, however, that she “hopes” to have to testify in court against the 76-year-old former Republican president, even though she has not yet been officially summoned, and that does not scare her.
“I’m not afraid, I have nothing to hide and I’m happy to tell everyone what I know,” she insists.
“I’ve seen him naked, there’s no way he could be scarier dressed,” she adds cheekily.
Donald Trump, who wants to return to the White House in 2024, denounced a “bogus and shameful” accusation orchestrated by the Democrats ahead of the presidential campaign.
His lawyer assured Friday that he intended to “fight” tirelessly to have the charges dismissed.
