Stormy Daniels wore a bulletproof vest to court, lawyer says

Porn star Stormy Daniels wore a bulletproof vest to get to court to deliver salacious allegations about Donald Trump because she feared what “some nut might do to her,” according to her attorney.

Daniels, 45, was “paralyzed with fear” before her two days testifying to her alleged fling with Trump that is at the heart of his criminal hush money trial, her attorney, Clark Brewster, told CNN late Monday.

“She was concerned about the security coming in to New York,” Brewster told CNN on Monday.

“She wore a bulletproof vest every day until she got to the courthouse,” he said, although photographs of her outside court did not show any obvious protective clothing.

Daniels also “cried herself to sleep” before coming to New York to testify for more than eight hours last Tuesday and Thursday, the attorney said.

“She was paralyzed with fear — not of taking the stand or telling her story, but what might some nut might do to her,” he said. “And I’m genuinely concerned about it as well.”

While on the stand, Daniels shockingly admitted she hates Trump, but denied allegations that she was looking to “extort money” from the former president.

Daniels claimed her primary motivation for coming forward with her story about a 2006 tryst with a married Trump was not money but rather to “get the story out.”

Trump is charged with having his lawyer Michael Cohen pay off Daniels in a bid to “corrupt” the 2016 election, and then trying to cover it up by fudging entries in his business records throughout 2017.

The ex-president — and expected Republican candidate for 2024 — has pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records related to the $130,000 payment made to Daniels ahead of the 2016 election.

He has pleaded not guilty and blasted the case as politically motivated.
