Stormy Daniels’ Testimony Will Help Trump on Appeal, Legal Experts Predict

Stormy Daniels’ wild salacious testimony during the “hush money” trial could help President Donald Trump overturn his bogus “guilty” verdict on appeal, legal experts believe.

Legal analysts have identified a number of ways Trump could challenge the conviction.

They have specifically pointed to Daniels’ prejudicial and shifting account of their alleged 2006 affair.

In a 2018 interview with comedian Bill Maher, Daniels had described the claimed tryst as awkward but “not a Me Too case.”

“I wasn’t attacked, or raped, or coerced or blackmailed,” she told Maher.

“They tried to shove me in the Me Too box to further their own agenda.

“And first of all, I didn’t want to be part of that because it’s not the truth and I’m not a victim in that regard,” she said.

As a trial witness, Daniels sang a different tune, however.

She suggested the encounter was non-consensual during her irrelevant statements that were designed to smear Trump before the jury.

Daniels was using language like “blacked out” and “power imbalance” as she sought to paint herself as a victim.

Judge Juan Merchan refused two requests from Trump’s lawyers to declare a mistrial over Daniels’ graphic and salacious testimony.

Merchan’s move has been cited as evidence of bias and a potential avenue for appeal.

The wild statements had no relevance to the business records charges Trump was facing.

Brian Buckmire, and ABC News legal contributor, told ABC News:

“We didn’t need to know some of those sexual details that came up in the trial to know or decide whether or not Donald Trump falsified his business records”

Daniels’ testimony is just one way Trump’s lawyers could challenge the verdict.

Trump’s lawyers could also argue he did not receive proper notice of the charges, violating the Sixth Amendment.

Trump was accused of “falsifying business records,” which is a misdemeanor.

However, George Soros-funded Democrat prosecutor Alvin Bragg charged the crime as 34 individual felonies by alleging the existence of a second crime.

It wasn’t until the trial’s closing that Bragg ambushed the defense with multiple theories about the second crime.

“If he was not given proper notice of those charges until the last minute, or just procedurally it was done incorrectly, that could be a strong argument,” Buckmire said.

It is still unclear what crimes Trump was convicted of.

While many speculate that the verdict will eventually be overturned, it is not likely to happen before Trump’s rematch with Biden in November.

Democrats are exploiting the verdict to smear Trump as a “convicted felon.”

“Expediting a case like this doesn’t mean it gets resolved by November; expediting a case like this means it gets resolved by 2025,” Buckmire said.

“That’s a fast appeal.”

In addition, Daniels admitted during her testimony that she “hates” Trump.

As Slay News reported, the admission even led to CNN legal analyst Elie Honig raising the alarm over Daniels’ testimony.

Honig warned that the cross-examination of Daniels was a disaster.

Honig tried to argue that Daniels’ testimony about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in a hotel room in 2006 was “plausible.”

However, he admitted that her responses under cross-examination by Trump’s team called her credibility into question.

“Her responses were disastrous!” Honig asserted.

The legal expert was referring to the moment when Daniels admitted that she “hates” Trump.

“That’s a big deal,” Honig said.
