Clinton-Appointed Ex-District Judge: Stormy Daniels ‘Has an Agenda’ to Get Trump ‘Convicted’

A former district judge has appeared on CNN and warned that adult star Stormy Daniels has a vendetta against President Donald Trump that she appears to be living out by testifying in the “hush money” trial.

According to former U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin, who was appointed by then-President Bill Clinton, Daniels has made her hopes for a Trump conviction known.

Earlier this week, the former adult film actress provided a salacious testimony about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in a hotel room in 2006.

After she began testifying on Tuesday, several legal experts across the mainstream media have blasted her comments as “disastrous.”

Many have noted that her comments have ruined her credibility as a witness and threatened to derail the case.

One critic included former Judge Scheindlin.

During an appearance on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Scheindlin remarked that Daniels made her motivation pretty clear on the stand.

“She strikes me that she has an agenda.

“She is trying to get [Trump] convicted and that’s coming through at least to me,” Scheindlin said.

“I actually think there was a motive there,” the ex-judge added.

“She said she hates him.

“She said she’s like to see him in prison.

“I think she was purposely throwing out this stuff to make sure the jurors were prejudiced, particularly the women jurors.

“Probably half of the men too were really put off.”

She also warned during the media appearance that Daniels’ testimony could end up swaying the jury against her.

“She may blow it,” Scheindlin noted.

“If they keep her going for hours and hours, she may just say something that’s very, very strange and affects the jury.

“I don‘t think this jury likes this woman anyway, and the more she talks, the less they may like her,” Scheindlin said.

WATCH:

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig made similar comments on “The Source,” as Slay News reported.

He called out Daniels’ open hatred of Trump on display.

“When the witness hates the person whose liberty is at stake, that’s a big damn deal!” Honig said.

“And she’s putting out tweets, fantasizing about him being in jail.

“That really undermines the credibility.”

Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree.

The charges stem from a years-long investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

The charges are related to alleged payments made ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

The claimed payments were supposedly meant to silence Daniels about her claims of an alleged 2006 extramarital affair with Trump.
