Stormy Daniels is still processing Trump’s conviction surrounding hush money payment, her husband says

Stormy Daniels is still processing the news of Donald Trump’s conviction in the hush money trial, shortly after the guilty verdict was read Thursday, said her husband Barrett Blade.

“It’s a big weight off her shoulders at this point,” Blade told CNN.

On the stand, Daniels described how she and Trump met at a celebrity golf tournament and what she says happened when she went to Trump’s Lake Tahoe hotel room in 2006. She also told the jury about a $130,000 hush money payment she received from former Trump attorney Michael Cohen before the 2016 election. 

“She was brought into this. This wasn’t her seeking justice for herself. She was standing up for herself early on and saying what was right, but this whole hush money trial is really nothing … it’s not her story,” he said.

Still, Blade said Daniels “feels a little vindicated that, you know, she was telling the truth” after the jury heard her testimony. He said they would have supported the jury’s decision either way.

“Hopefully people will finally start seeing the truth and if they do, they do, if they don’t, they don’t. I don’t know that that ever changes,” he said.
