Stormy Daniels is speaking out for the first time about Donald Trump‘s indictment!
As you most likely know, the 76-year-old was indicted by a grand jury in New York on Thursday – making him the first sitting or former president in the US to face criminal charges. This comes over six years after he allegedly paid $130,000 to Stormy to keep her quiet about their Affair while he was the presidential candidate in 2016. So the indictment was a long time coming!
We’ve, of course, heard what Trump had to say about the whole situation. But what does the woman at the center of the former president’s hush money case feel about the indictment? Well, she had a very pointed message for Trump during an extensive interview with The Times of London, saying “this p***y grabbed back.” She told the outlet on Friday:
“Trump is no longer untouchable. A person in power is not exempt from the law. And no matter what your job is, or what your bank account says, you’re held accountable for the things you’ve said and done, and justice is served.”

While Stormy feels the grand jury’s decision is “vindication,” she also noted that “it’s bittersweet” at the same time, explaining:
“He’s done so much worse that he should have been taken down [for] before. I am fully aware of the insanity of it, being a porn star. But it’s also poetic; this p***y grabbed back.”
For those who don’t remember, that is a reference to Trump’s crude remark to former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush about groping women that surfaced before the 2016 election. Stormy continued, sharing how she’s now worried about the fallout from the criminal case:
“It’s monumental and epic, and I’m proud. The other side of it is that it’s going to continue to divide people and bring them up in arms. He’s already gotten away with inciting a riot, and causing death and destruction. Whatever the outcome is, it’s going to cause violence, and there’s going to be injuries and death. There’s the potential for a lot of good to come from this. But either way, a lot of bad is going to come from it, too.”
Besides being concerned about the public response, the 44-year-old is afraid “for the first time ever” for herself, as she’s already received threats on “all social media platforms, and email, and phone” since the indictment. So, so awful. She added:
“Part of me is hesitant to say that, because you don’t want blood in the water. It kind of encourages the sharks. It’s especially scary because Trump himself is inciting violence and encouraging it.”
However, she made it clear although she’s fearful of the online attacks from his supporters, she’s not afraid of Trump at all:
“The country is more divided and people are more desperate. I’m not afraid of him, or of the government, but it just takes one crazy supporter who thinks they’re doing God’s work or protecting democracy.”
And Stormy said she’s also not “as scared” to see him in court if she serves as a witness:
“I’ve seen him naked. There’s no way he could be scarier with his clothes on. And after what [Michael] Avenatti put me through last January, I’m not as scared.”
Ultimately, the adult film actress stated she is ready to face him during the trial if she’s called as a witness:
“I hope that I do have to. I’m not afraid, I have nothing to hide, and I look forward to telling everybody what I know.”
And when asked if she regrets moving forward with the allegations against Trump, she expressed:
“Sometimes in the moment, I’m like, ‘What the f**k was I thinking? Was it worth it?’ But I wouldn’t be able to look at myself in the mirror. If I could go back far enough to where I did go to the hotel that night, I wouldn’t have done that. But…coming forward, I would do the same thing again. Because it was the right thing to do.”
At this time, Trump is expected to appear in a Manhattan courtroom for his arraignment next Tuesday. Reactions to what Stormy had to say, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments below.
