Porn star Stormy Daniels’s defamation claim against former President Donald Trump has been thrown out, and now she is being forced to pay up.
A federal appellate court ruled in Trump’s favor on Friday, and now Daniels is on the hook for $300,000 in legal fees. The decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is a massive win for Trump, who has been fighting for years to clear his name and set the record straight.
Daniels’s lies have been debunked, and Donald Trump has claimed yet another important victory.
Big win for Trump
Trump issued a statement after the decision saying, “The 9th Circuit just issued a final ruling in the Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy Daniels) frivolous lawsuit case against me brought by her disgraced lawyer, Michael Avenatti, upholding the lower court ruling that she owes me nearly $300,000 in attorney fees, costs, and sanctions (not including appeal costs). As I have stated many times throughout the years, I never had an affair with Stormy Daniels, nor would I ever have wanted to. The ruling was a total and complete victory and vindication for, and of me.”
The allegations that Trump had slept with Daniels were spread far and wide by the liberal media that was eager to defame Trump.
In many ways, it was clear from the start that the lawsuits and allegations from Daniels were simply tabloid level discourse meant to muddy the waters and further denigrate Trump’s image.
Trump himself acknowledged this in his statement saying, “The lawsuit was a purely political stunt that never should have been started, or allowed to happen, &I am pleased that my lawyers were able to bring it to a successful conclusion after the court fully rejected her appeal. Now all I have to do is wait for all of the money she owes me.”
This decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals sends an important message that baseless allegations will not be entertained in the U.S. court system.
Despite this decision, the left will continue to cook up slanderous accusations and tabloid garbage to throw at powerful Republicans that threaten them politically.
Daniels remains defiant
Despite the resounding decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, Stormy Daniels has remained defiant, and her statement posted to Twitter made it seem as if she is far from done with this case.
Of course, without any legal recourse, there aren’t many options available to Daniels, and she will have to eat the $300,000 legal fees charge.
Luckily there are more than likely a few rabid Trump haters out there that would be willing to donate their money to help Daniels recover from her devastating defeat. As for Trump, he ends this story laughing all the way to the bank.
