Donald Trump pleads not guilty to 34 charges in the Stormy Daniels case

This Tuesday, before the jury, Donald Trump pleaded not guilty to the charges in the Stormy Daniels case

Former President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty this Tuesday to a total of 34 criminal charges in a Manhattan court in the case of alleged bribery of porn actress Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels.

Trump was indicted last week for the possible secret payment of $130,000 (more than 120,000 euros) to Clifford by former president Michael Cohen’s former lawyer. Trump has thus become the first former US president to be charged, which could end his aspirations to return to the White House in the elections scheduled for 2024.

The imputation of Trump, an unprecedented event in the history of the United States, derives from a case that would date back to 2006, but that did not come to light until 2018, when Stormy Daniels directly and publicly pointed out the magnate for an alleged ‘affair’ out of wedlock that entailed multiple legal derivatives.

The fact in question would not have been one of the many accusations of infidelity or even harassment leveled against Trump in recent years if it were not for the fact that in 2016, a few days before the elections that brought the Republican leader to the White House, Daniels received a payment of $130,000.

With this money, in which Trump’s then lawyer, Michael Cohen, mediated, the tycoon supposedly guaranteed Clifford’s silence. The actress alleges that she accepted the money out of fear for the safety of her family.
