Who is Stormy Daniels, at the centre of Donald Trump’s hush money conviction?

New York: Adult film star Stormy Daniels became the centre of attention when she claimed that she had sex with him two times in 2006 to get out of the “trailer park” and that he had paid her to “hush” the matter. Almost two decades later, Daniels testified against the Republican contender for the upcoming election before a New York jury in a landmark case that marked the first criminal conviction against a former US President.

Trump was found guilty of all 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in a scheme to illegally influence the 2016 presidential election and paying hush money payments to the adult film star, including covering up his reimbursement to former lawyer Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment to Daniels to buy her silence before the 2016 election about the alleged sexual encounter. Daniels became a crucial witness for the prosecutions, as noted by her sharp wit and confidence during cross-examination.
