Stormy Daniels Ordered to Pay Donald Trump $293,052.03 in Legal Fees

We’ve been reporting on this (likely) outcome since May, so there is some obligation on our part to report the results. The court that threw out Stormy Daniels frivolous defamation case against the President and has ordered her to pay Mr. Trump over 294,000.00 dollars for his trouble.

Bret Baier tweeted out the judgment on Twitter.

“U.S. District Court today ordered Stormy Daniels to pay Pres. Trump $293,052.33 to reimburse his attorneys’ fees (75% of his total legal bill), + $1,000 in sanctions to punish Daniels for filing a meritless lawsuit against the President.”

Michael Avenatti, her “lawyer” is calling this a win. He claims Trump asked for $800,000.00. The order to pay $294,000.00 is a victory for Daniels. Is it?

The court notes in its order the Stephanie Clifford (Stormy’s actual name) is actively attempting to withdraw a separate defamation claim against Mr. Trump.

“Plaintiffs unwillingness to resort to litigation in light of defendants use of rhetorical hyperbole suggests that plaintiff is already being deterred from filing meritless defamation claims.”

It doesn’t sound like a win. It sounds like an expensive lesson.

And the sum will cover 75% of Mr. Trump’s legal fees and none of Stormy’s (that’s money she owes you Mr. Avenatti).
