Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump have a rather rough history. Daniels has shared her story of an encounter with Trump, which he categorically denied. Now she’s on the rough side of their battle, but she’s not giving up, and says that her lawyer still has options to pursue.
The two have gone back and forth in the public eye and in court, with Daniels suing to have her nondisclosure agreement invalidated, and again for defamation after Trump said she was lying about being threatened over speaking out. Ultimately, as the Washington Post reports, Trump prevailed in the defamation case, with U.S. District Judge S. James Otero declaring Trump’s statements mere “political rhetoric,” and ordering Daniels to pay his attorney fees to the tune of nearly $300K.
Now, Daniels and Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, are on good terms, and she’s appeared on his podcast before. She’ll return in Monday’s episode, where she talks about her plans to keep fighting the order to cover his attorney fees, and what other legal options her lawyer is pursuing on her behalf.
Cohen shared an excerpt from Monday’s episode in advance.

Daniels says that shes not well-versed in legalese and leaves it to her attorney to understand the correct terms for the route to potential victory, but that she’d rather see all her money and possessions burn than fork over cash to the ex-president, who is reportedly struggling financially, and who is still holding out the possibility of another political run as his team continues to fundraise.
