The accusations of extortionate demands against Stormy Daniels and former President Donald Trump have been the center of controversy recently.
Rich Lowry’s analysis for the National Review argues that Daniels’s demand for $130,000 in hush money during the 2016 campaign was extortionate and that Trump paid the amount because it was worth it to him to make the story go away.
However, legal experts have deemed the case brought by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg as weak. The accusations against Daniels for extortion come after the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals awarded Trump $121,962.56 in attorney fees from Daniels.
The ruling is separate from the Manhattan case where Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 charges regarding allegations of falsifying business records.
The left’s corrupt tactics to discredit Republican leaders have been evident in this case. They have been trying to undermine the will of the American people since Trump was elected.
But we won’t let them. Trump always put America first, and we need him now more than ever. We must stand by him and show our support in this trying time.
