Stormy Daniels Is A Huge Problem For Cadet Bone Spurs
Who cares if the President had sex with a pornstar named Stormy Daniels? Not only does he deny it, even if he did, it was as a private citizen. It’s none of our business. It’s between him, God and Melania.
Many people are saying this because they genuinely believe it; however, they are missing the point.
Why Stormy Daniels Matters
Her suit asks the court to decide whether a contract requiring her silence is valid. The contract is anonymized, meaning that both parties in the contract are referred to by pseudonyms (Stormy is PP and Trump is allegedly DD).
This leaves the dotard with two options:
He could deny that he is DD. This means that Stormy is fully within her rights to release all of the photos and text messages that Trump denied the existence of. The ones that were apparently damning enough to merit $130,000 in hush money from his lawyer Michael Cohen. Again, Trump claims he knows nothing about this payment his lawyer made on his behalf.
His second option is to assert that he is DD and is entitled to all the protections in the contract. While this might prevent her from releasing the material, it will essentially confirm both that he and/or Michael Cohen committed campaign finance violations, and that they set up LLCs specifically for the purpose of concealing crimes.
Another point is that adultery is a crime in New York state. If Trump owns the contract, then the contract is potentially voidable, because you can’t contract to cover up a crime.
If that makes whatever prenup Cadet Bone Spurs and Melania have void, what’s the odds she divorces him within the time Trump is still President? Furthermore, whatever award she is entitled to according to their prenup, due to voiding the ‘contract’, we’ll also end up with some kind of public reckoning of his finances.
It’s extremely clear that Trump doesn’t want that as he refuses to release his taxes (the first Presidential candidates in nearly 50 years to do so), and would prefer the whole situation to be handled in a private arbitration proceeding instead of a public deposition. As with most scandals, it’s not about the act but the coverup.
