On Tuesday, 45th President Donald Trump was awarded $121,962.56 in legal fees from Stormy Daniels by the 9th Circuit.
The news broke from Trump’s second eldest son Eric who announced on Twitter, “the 9th Circuit just awarded Trump $121,962.56 in attorney fees from Stormy Daniels. Order just released. This in addition to the roughly $500k she already owes him.”
The news comes as President Trump is currently in the Manhattan Court House for his arraignment for the indictment of alleged crimes conducted to ensure Daniels maintains a non-disclosure agreement from 2016.
Thus this news is likely welcoming for the leading Republican candidate for the presidency given the massive legal fees he is likely incurring by funding his defense.
As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, Todd Blanche, a white-collar defense attorney, has been hired to be part of Trump’s legal team ahead of his arraignment Tuesday, according to Fox News Digital. A source informed the conservative corporate outlet that Blanche’s hire was intended to bring “additional firepower” to Trump’s legal team.
The awarding of over $100,000 is in addition to $300,000 awarded to Trump last year due to a failed defamation case brought by Daniels, as reported by NBC News.
As President Trump continues to suffer from this political persecution, it is ironic that a person central to the case against him is now paying Trump for tens of thousands of dollars.
