Trump Trial Resumes with Testimony from Stormy Daniels’ Ex-Lawyer

The trial of former President Donald Trump continues with testimony from Keith Davidson, an attorney who represented two women involved in alleged sexual encounters with Trump in 2016.

Davidson, who negotiated deals on behalf of model Karen McDougal and adult film star Stormy Daniels, recounted his involvement in securing payments for their silence about their encounters with Trump.

McDougal received $150,000 from the parent company of the National Enquirer, while Daniels, also known as Stephanie Clifford, received $130,000 from Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer.

Prosecutors presented evidence of text messages and emails showing Davidson’s efforts to market McDougal’s allegations to tabloids and his negotiations with Cohen regarding Daniels’ claims. Davidson acknowledged that suppressing the stories was perceived to benefit Trump’s presidential campaign.

During his testimony, Davidson discussed the settlement agreement between Daniels and Trump, which included a provision for a $1 million penalty for any violation. However, Trump never signed the paperwork, which used pseudonyms for both parties.

Davidson also recounted conversations with Cohen following Trump’s election victory, during which Cohen expressed frustration and disillusionment with Trump, claiming he had not been adequately compensated for his loyalty.

The trial continues with Davidson’s testimony shedding light on the behind-the-scenes negotiations and dynamics surrounding the allegations against Trump.
