Stormy Daniels testimony called into question

 May 12, 2024

Legal experts are tearing apart Stormy Daniels' testimony, Fox News reports

This comes after she recently testified in the so-called hush-money case that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) has brought against former President Donald Trump.

Bragg alleges that Trump criminally misrepresented a payment that he made, through his attorney, to Daniels to keep secret an alleged affair that they had. Bragg further claims that Trump made this payment to help out his 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump denies the affair and any wrongdoing. He also maintains that Bragg is running election interference for President Joe Biden. Many legal experts, on both sides of the political spectrum, agree.

Bragg's star witness has credibility issues

This is what the legal experts are saying, namely, that Daniels - one of Bragg's star witnesses in the case - has some serious credibility issues, and, when you are a star witness, credibility is everything.

Fox, for its report, highlights legal experts who were recently on CNN, of all places.

There, U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin said that Daniels strikes her as someone with "an agenda," namely, an agenda to "get [Trump] convicted."

Scheindlin added, "[Daniels] may blow it. If they keep her going for hours and hours, she may just say something that‘s very, very strange and affects the jury. I don‘t think this jury likes this woman anyway, and the more she talks, the less they may like her."

Elie Honig, CNN's legal analyst, told the outlet that "When the witness hates the person whose liberty is at stake, that’s a big d--n deal! And she’s putting out tweets, fantasizing about him being in jail. That really undermines the credibility."

Will Daniels cost Bragg the case?

At this point, it is anyone's guess.

Something that has to be remembered is that this case is taking place in New York City, which is dominated by anti-Trump Democrats. So, if the jury is composed of 12 individuals who dislike Trump, then it may not matter what happens at trial. They may convict him anyway.

To any fair-minded person who is watching, however, then it is absurd that the case has even made it this far.

The case is going to get even more absurd this upcoming week when Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen takes the stand. Cohen is Bragg's other star witness, and the big problem for Bragg is that Cohen has made a name for himself as a serial liar. 

Again, though, considering that this case is taking place in New York City, it might not matter.
