US Porn Star Stormy Daniels Testifies Against Donald Trump in NY Hush Money Trial

The testimony is part of the ongoing New York hush money trial of former US president Donald Trump.

Adult film star Stormy Daniels is testifying about a Wall Street Journal story that ran four days before the 2016 election.

That story broke the news that the publisher of the National Enquirer agreed to pay $150,000 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal for her story about an alleged affair with Trump a decade earlier. The tabloid then declined to publish the story, a process known as “catch and kill.”

Daniels said she couldn’t respond to the WSJ’s request for comment because of an NDA she had signed.
