Stormy Daniels hopes 'justice is served' in Trump case

The adult film star known as Stormy Daniels recently expressed her "hope" that former President Donald Trump faces "justice." 

Daniels did so in an interview with OK! magazine.

To jog your memory, Daniels is the adult film star to whom Trump - through Michael Cohen - allegedly paid a "hush money" payment, ahead of his 2016 presidential run, in order to prevent Daniels from revealing an affair that he allegedly had with her several years earlier.

Trump has adamantly denied the affair. But, in some sense, this is all beside the point.

The important bit is that the alleged "hush money" transaction has become the basis for the criminal indictment that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) has brought against Trump. Bragg essentially alleges that Trump illegally lied about the purpose of the "hush money" payment on business forms.

Legal experts, even legal experts who are not particularly fond of Trump, have admitted that Bragg's case is dubious at best.

Regardless, Daniels, during the interview, made it clear that she hopes that Bragg's prosecution of Trump is successful.

She said:

I loosely used to be like looking up things all the time, and I started to go crazy. I don't follow as closely as I used to; I'm not up to the minute, but it is clear that self-implosion is happening. I don't know the exact date, but I am going to speak with prosecutors before the end of the year, so everything is on track there. I just hope that justice is served and there is hope on the horizon.

What Daniels appears to be saying is that she use to follow Bragg's case against Trump a lot more closely than she now does, and, apparently, she plans to meet with prosecutors at some point.

It is unclear what Daniels means by "it is clear that self-implosion is happening." Given everything else she had to say, one can probably infer that she thinks that Bragg's prosecution of Trump will be successful.

She could be right. Legally speaking, Bragg's case against Trump is extremely weak, but it may not matter. The fact is that the case is taking place in New York City - a Democratic stronghold with Democratic judges - and it is plausible - perhaps even probable - that Trump will be found guilty for this reason alone.

Daniels, during the interview, was also asked whether she believes that she made the right decision when she decided to speak publicly about the alleged affair between herself and Trump.

"I can't answer that yet," she said, in part.

Daniels explained, "I can't fully answer that question until it's over, because if it's done and he's found guilty and justice is served, then it was worth it. If not, people will still think I was lying, and it doesn't change anything. If he becomes president, then I will absolutely regret coming forward because that means I lost all that time with my friends, family and daughter for nothing."
