Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Just Destroyed Bragg’s Case Against Trump



Former President Donald Trump was back in New York City Thursday for his criminal trial, and it’s been a pretty good day for him. During Thursday’s proceedings, Keith Davidson, the lawyer representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels, gave revealing testimony that completely undermines Bragg’s charges against Trump.

For starters, Davidson argued that the $130,000 payment to Daniels should not be construed as “hush money” but rather as a legitimate “consideration” payment.

Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Johsua Steinglass pressed Davidson on the witness stand about Daniels’ statement in January 2018, which Davidson prepared for his client, that denied any relationship with Trump and said that her only interaction with Trump was “a few public appearances and nothing more.”

“Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false,” the statement says.“I don’t believe that Stormy ever alleged that any interaction with Trump was ‘romantic,‘” Davidson testified Thursday. But it is his understanding that Daniels had a sexual encounter with Trump.

He also said the payment “wasn’t a payoff.”“It wasn’t a payoff. And it wasn’t hush money. It was consideration,” Davidson said. Davidson added that he would never use “hush money” to describe the money exchange.

He would only refer to it as “consideration.” “Consideration” is a contractual legal term for what someone gives in return for the promise to abide by a contract; in this case, money. The payment was labeled “legal fees” in Trump’s accounting, which prosecutors allege amounted to fraud.

Steinglass asked about the truthfulness of the Daniels’ statement. Davidson replied, “I think it’s technically true.”

If that wasn’t bad enough, Davidson also testified that Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, was “despondent” when he didn’t get a White House job after Trump won the presidency in 2016.

I guess that’s the benefit of not defining a specific crime in a political show trial; when one strategy collapses, they can easily pivot over to another avenue.

Their original plot was to use lawfare to run out the clock so Trump couldn’t campaign.
They also failed to realize his mugshot and trials would make him more popular with many traditionally dem voters.

This whole case needs to be dismissed and Judge Merchan removed from the Bench and Bragg relived of his Job and Soros relived of his American Citizenship the same for his rotten Son
