Former US President Donald Trump could potentially face arrest concerning a case involving adult film actress Stormy Daniels. This comes after a court decision last week to allow Daniels to sue Trump for defamation.

The case stems from a 2018 lawsuit in which Daniels claimed she was paid hush money to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Trump.

What is the case between Stormy Daniel and Donald?

Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sued Trump for defamation after he refuted her claims that they had an illicit relationship.

The suit claims that Trump’s denials constituted defamation, as they suggested that Daniels was lying about the affair. The case had been on hold for several years due to Trump’s presidency, but it was revived after he left office.

Last week, a federal judge ruled that Daniels could proceed with her defamation lawsuit against Trump. This means that the case will now go to trial, where Daniels can prove that Trump defamed her. If she prevails, Trump may be required to make restitution. 

Charges brought forth against Donald by Stormy Daniel

The defamation case is one of a wider issue involving Daniels and Trump. In 2018, Daniels claimed that Michael Cohen, Trump’s attorney, had given her $130,000 in hush money to silence her about an alleged liaison with the president in 2006.

Afterward, Cohen pleaded guilty to charges connected to the payment, including breaches of campaign finance laws.

Trump has denied both the incident and his knowledge of the payments. However, his involvement in the scandal has been the subject of ongoing investigations by federal prosecutors.

Donald Trump is charged with the following:

While it is unclear whether Trump will actually be arrested, legal experts say that the possibility exists. If he were arrested, it would likely be for charges related to the hush money payment rather than the defamation lawsuit.

In recent months, prosecutors have reportedly been gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses concerning the case.

Trump has not commented on the possibility of an arrest, but he has continued to deny any wrongdoing in the hush money scandal.

What will happen if Trump is arrested?

If Trump were to be arrested, it would be a major blow to his political career and could have implications for the GOP as a whole. While Trump remains popular among many Republican voters, his ongoing legal troubles could damage his reputation and influence within the party.

At the same time, his potential arrest could galvanize his supporters and further deepen the divisions within the GOP.

Some Republican leaders have already distanced themselves from Trump after the January 6th insurrection at the US Capitol.
