When the whole situation with Stormy Daniels came about in the media last year there were probably a lot of people that quite honestly were wondering who in the heck she was.
Then, after people found out who she was it became relatively clear who in the heck that she was and that was someone that was being used as a patsy to try to get under the skin of the President.
The whole idea of the defamation of character lawsuit against the President seemed relatively strange when you look at the construction of how a successful defamation suit is supposed to work.
Under the law as most people understand it when you successfully sue someone for defamation of character it means that they have spread mistruths about you in the public arena that have damaged your reputation to the point where you are not longer able to gainfully support yourself.
Now, in the context of a general contractor that would be like someone lying about the kind of lumber that they used and how it would be susceptible to fires or something like that; with that contractor unable to get any jobs building houses as the result of a lie.
In that context, it’s hard to even figure out without having to take a Tylenol and lie down with a cold cloth on ones head how someone with the line of work that she is in be defamed short of someone framing her for a murder.
From Western Journal:
Lawyers for President Trump want porn actress Stormy Daniels to pay them $340,000 in legal bills they claim they earned successfully defending Trump against her frivolous defamation claim.
The attorneys are due in a Los Angeles federal courtroom Monday to make their case that they rang up big bills because of gamesmanship and aggressive tactics by attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents Daniels.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, alleges she had a one-night affair with Trump in 2006.
She sued him earlier this year seeking to break a non-disclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 election about the tryst as part $130,000 hush money settlement.
Trump has denied the affair.
