Stormy Daniels Monday said she would gladly testify to a grand jury investigating former President Donald Trump and predicted that he is “crazy enough” to run for the White House in 2024.
The porn star said her lawyer has been in touch with prosecutors but she hasn’t yet been called to testify against Trump.
“I would love nothing more than my day in court and to give a deposition and to provide whatever evidence that they need from me,” Daniels said in an interview with CNN.
Daniels said she cannot understand why Trump has so far evaded accountability for paying her hush money in the closing days of the 2016 presidential election to keep quiet about an alleged affair with the future president.
Lawyer Michael Cohen served federal prison time for paying her and another centerfold model at Trump’s direction. Trump denies the affair.
“I just don’t understand how one man can go to prison for a crime, and somebody else can’t even be investigated,” Daniels said.
Cohen and Daniels were once nemeses who traded insults. But once Cohen left Trump’s orbit, he apologized for calling her a liar and worse.
Despite Trump’s legal woes, Daniels said she has no doubt Trump may try to make another White House run.
“I think that it’s absurd,” she said. ”But, honestly, he’s crazy enough to do it.
After the former president unleashed the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, she thinks Trump is no longer playing with a full deck of cards.
“I almost feel sorry for him in a way because I don’t believe he’s all mentally there,” she added.
Trump and his company are under criminal investigation by the Manhattan district attorney’s office and the New York state attorney general.
A special grand jury has been impaneled to probe various allegations, and at least one official in the Trump Organization has already been called to testify.
Trump is more vulnerable to criminal prosecution now that he has left the White House and is no longer shielded by the traditional protections given to sitting presidents against being indicted or put on trial.
