Did Trump and Stormy Daniels cheat on Melania Trump’s wife? Unexpected Disclosure in the Hush-Money Case

Following the revelation of text conversations between Michael Cohen and Keith Davidson, which raised questions over the former US President’s faithfulness to his wife, Melania Trump, the newest revelations in the ongoing criminal trial of Donald Trump in New York have drawn attention.

Prosecutors questioned Davidson, who formerly represented adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, in a contentious turn of events on Tuesday in the trial. The subject of discussion were texts in which Davidson was questioned about whether Trump had cheated on Melania.

In these messages, Dylan Howard, a former editor of The National Enquirer, questioned Davidson about whether Trump had cheated on Melania and if there had been any extramarital affairs.

Davidson was questioned by prosecutor Joshua Steinglass, “And how did you respond to this text?”

Reading his reply to Howard out loud, Davidson apologized, saying, “I really cannot say yet.”

Although Davidson admitted to knowing the specifics, he said he wasn’t prepared to talk about them at that moment. “Trump is a f*****,” Howard replied back, adding, “Wave the white flag.” People, it’s over.

The text conversations that were shown in court showed how hard Cohen and Davidson negotiated the compensation, which intensified after the revelation of the Access Hollywood video in October 2016, according to a report by the British magazine BBC.

In the infamous 2006 tape, Trump boasted on a hot mic that his celebrity allowed him to grab women’s genitalia without their permission.

Prosecutors have argued that Trump was keen to stifle Daniels’ account after the video surfaced, fearing that a second accusation of having sex with an adult film actress would seriously harm his chances of winning the presidency. They have presented the case as an instance of meddling in elections.

Davidson’s evidence may be crucial in proving prosecutors’ allegations that Trump and his allies paid to suppress tabloid reports on the former president’s alleged relationships with Daniels and McDougal before the 2016 election.

The former US president is charged with concealing payments made to his longtime fixer and attorney, Michael Cohen, in violation of the law. Cohen allegedly used the money to bribe Stormy Daniels to remain silent about the claimed sexual encounter that occurred in the closing weeks of the 2016 election campaign.

In March 2023, a grand jury in New York indicted Trump on 34 counts of falsifying business documents pertaining to the payments he made to Daniels, whose actual name is Stephanie Clifford.
