Lawyer’s testimony reveals “Access Hollywood” tape played a significant role in Stormy Daniels’ hush agreement

According to a former lawyer for Stormy Daniels, there wasn’t much interest in her story about an alleged affair with Donald Trump until the “Access Hollywood” tape was released in 2016. This testimony strengthens the prosecutors’ argument that the payment made to Daniels was meant to influence the election.

During the testimony on Tuesday, Keith Davidson, who had previously served as the legal representative for both Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, emphasized the significant impact of the recording in which Trump brags about sexual assault. He stated that this particular recording played a crucial role in the endeavor to acquire the rights to Stormy Daniels’ story.

According to NBC News, Davidson stated that there was minimal interest before the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape.

According to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his legal team, the “Access Hollywood” recording caused significant upheaval in the Trump campaign, leading to a heightened desire to silence individuals who may have had damaging stories to share. Prosecutors have charged Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records in an alleged attempt to conceal a $130,000 payment to Daniels prior to the 2016 election.

According to Davidson, he does not believe that Michael Cohen personally provided the money for the hush payment. He stated that he is of the opinion that the funds originated from “Donald Trump or some corporate affiliation associated with him.”

According to The New York Times, Davidson stated, “I believe that Donald Trump had Michael Cohen as his personal attorney or general counsel, and this story was related to his client. This is why he was interested in the story.”
