Stormy Daniels: Trump’s Actions towards Me Not Worthy of Imprisonment
In a recent interview on Fox Nation’s “Piers Morgan Uncensored,” adult film star Stormy Daniels discussed the hush money payments she received leading up to the 2016 presidential election from former President Donald Trump. Daniels stated that she did not believe Trump’s actions toward her were worthy of imprisonment:
“I don’t think that his crimes against me are worthy of incarceration”
Daniels believes that if Trump is found guilty of other allegations against him, then he should face appropriate consequences. However, she does not believe that her specific case should result in imprisonment for the former president.
Trump Facing Indictment for Falsifying Business Records
Trump is currently facing indictment in New York City on 34 counts of falsifying business records related to alleged hush-money payments to Daniels. During his arraignment, he pleaded not guilty to the charges. Despite these allegations, Trump has dismissed any notion of wrongdoing and has stated that his only crime was “fearlessly defending our nation from those who seek to destroy it.”
Potential Consequences for Trump
If found guilty, Trump could face a maximum sentence of 136 years in prison, although that is extremely unlikely. However, federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York did not charge Trump in 2019 related to the hush money payments made to Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal. Additionally, the Federal Election Commission dismissed its investigation into the matter in 2021.
Other Ongoing Legal Battles
Apart from the hush money saga, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate Trump’s alleged improper retention of classified records from his presidency at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. New York Attorney General Letitia James has also been investigating Trump since she took office in January 2019, alleging that Trump and his company misled banks and others about the value of his assets.
In Georgia, prosecutors in Fulton County opened a criminal investigation into Trump’s alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election in the state, including his phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which Trump suggested finding enough votes to change the results, a quote which many argue was taken out of context.
