STORMY Daniels said she is “proud” after a grand jury voted to indict Donald Trump over his alleged hush money payments to the adult film star.
Daniels, 44, said she is ready to meet the former US president in court and call him “no longer untouchable”.
“A person in power is not exempt from the law. And whatever your job, or what your bank account says, you will be held accountable for the things you have said and done, and justice will be served,” she told. The times.
Despite the historical indictment making Trump, 76, the first former president to face criminal charges, Daniels said the news is “bittersweet”.
“I’m fully aware of the madness of being a porn star. But it’s also poetic,” she said.
Charges against Trump have yet to be made public, but prosecutors investigated an alleged $130,000 payment to Daniels a week before the 2016 election.
Trump is likely to appear before Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on Tuesday after announcing his surrender.
He could face up to 30 charges related to business fraud.
Trump will be photographed and fingerprinted after turning himself in.
He will be flanked by armed Secret Service agents who must protect him at all times, per The New York Times.
Trump attorney Joe Tacopina told ABC News on Friday that the former president “will not be handcuffed.”
The former commander-in-chief has vehemently denied doing anything wrong throughout the investigation.
He wrote on his Truth Social platform: “This is political persecution and election interference at the highest level in history.
He claimed the Democrats “cheated countless times over the decades” and thought the Manhattan DA was “an embarrassment.”
Meanwhile, Daniels said when the news came, “I was on a horse named Redemption.
“I am proud.”
She continues to suffer demeaning comments, nothing new since she came forward about her alleged affair with Trump.
However, she said that the backlash against her has grown over time.
“The first time it was ‘gold digger’, ‘s**t’, ‘w***e’, ‘liar’, whatever,” she said.
“And this time it’s ‘I’m going to kill you’. They’re much more violent and explicit.”
She said for the first time that she is “afraid” of what’s to come, but that it won’t stop her from meeting him in court.
“I’ve seen him naked. He couldn’t possibly be scarier with his clothes on,” she claimed.
Trump has long denied ever having an affair with Daniels.
