‘You wanted money, right?’: Trump team tries to dent Stormy Daniels’ testimony

Trump lawyers seem to be trying to seed idea that Daniels was more interested in getting a payout than telling the truth

Donald Trump’s lawyers sought to undermine Stormy Daniels’ credibility on Thursday, pressing on her motivations for agreeing to a hush-money payment as the adult film star continued critical testimony in the former president’s criminal trial.

Susan Necheles, a lawyer for Trump, asked Daniels to explain on Thursday why she didn’t just go public with her story in the waning days of the 2016 campaign and instead sought to get paid for her story. She noted that Daniels had been talking to a journalist at the publication Slate who had been trying to convince her to let him publish her story, but that she wouldn’t have been paid. She also suggested Daniels wanted to hurt Trump because Trump opposed gay marriage and abortion.
