Finally some good news for the president on the legal front.
Stephanie Clifford, the porn star better known as Stormy Daniels, was ordered to pay $293,000 in attorney fees and sanctions to Donald Trump, also known as David Dennison, after she unsuccessfully sued the president for defamation.
U.S. District Judge James Otero in Los Angeles threw out Clifford’s lawsuit in November, saying Trump’s “defaming” tweet was protected free speech, Bloomberg reports.
The hefty $293,053 price tag includes $1,000 in sanctions that U.S. District Judge James Otero slapped Daniels with over her attempt to “chill” Trump’s “free speech rights,” according to Charles Harder, an attorney for the President.
“The court’s order, along with the court’s prior order dismissing Stormy Daniels’ defamation case against the President, together constitute a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case,” Harder said.
Stormy was quoted as saying, “Just like so many of my performances, this really sucks.”
Who is this judge? Does he have brothers? Sisters? Are they judges?
Art of the deal, Trump gets a hooker to pay him.
Nice work, Avanetti! I’m sure the job offers will be pouring in now.
Donald Trump is actually David Dennison’s stage name. Like the moon landing, it’s all just part of a reality TV show.
Watch as dozens of Liberal Hollywood wanks rally behind her since liberals are dumb enough to finance any sort of silly liberal causes like Animal Rights,Enviromentalism and Gun Control
have read the final report on the lead photographer who orchestrated and photographed the fake landing on the moon. yes, there were astronauts in space but the actual photographing was on good old earth.
We’re currently landing unmanned exploratory vehicles on Mars, which is a target at an average distance of 140 million miles, that’s moving through space at an average speed of 53,979 miles per hour. You don’t think our Vietnam era technology was capable of landing a couple of guys in spacesuits on the surface of the moon, which takes 27 days to circle the Earth a single time and is only 238,900 miles away?
Publisher of the National Enquirer admits to hush-money payments made on Trump’s behalf
So these services were illegal campaign contributions? If not, where was the money coming from? “Inquiring minds want to know.”
@Greg: I guess you truly are desperate when the National Enquirer is your final hope. But, then again, they are probably more credible than CNN and the rest of the liberal propaganda machine.
Is someone putting up a “Trump/Pence” sign in their yard a campaign contribution? Is posting a comment supporting Trump a campaign contribution? Someone doing something to support their candidate is NOT necessarily a “campaign contribution”. Also, keeping those stories out of the public eye is not necessarily solely for the benefit of his campaign. If any of this happened, it was a private affair and wanting to keep it private is not just a political consideration.
Conversely, Obama paying his racist preacher $150,000 to go silent doesn’t have that “private” component. Obama went to that church for 20 years, sat in publicly in the sanctuary as Wright spewed his racist hatred. Wright “mentored” Obama. They were seen in public often. Silencing Wright by stuffing $150K in his mouth is indisputably connected to his campaign and concern with voter’s perceptions.
When the thing contributed is of monetary value—and a payment of a sizable sum of cash money certainly is—campaign finance laws are applicable.
Obama’s $150,000 Jeremiah Wright contribution, by the way, was a made-up story created by Edward Klein, which is still bouncing around in the right-wing echo box. There’s no original source other than Klein himself.
NOT if it does not apply to the campaign. Trump could have made the payoffs (if he did) to keep it from his wife, not the campaign.
You should read the story. Wright confirms it. D’OH!
Wright only confirmed it according to Klein. That supposed confirmation was part of Klein’s original tale.
@Greg: President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for campaign reporting violations — one of the largest fees ever levied against a presidential campaign. It seems campaign contributions are a civil , not a criminal matter if proven. 3 very serious violations.
@Greg: Wait… are you alleging “fake news”? What happened to the “journalistic ethics” you claimed was pervasive?
Perhaps you can find the denial of the story from either Obama or Wright.
