A federal court awarded President Donald Trump an additional quarter-million dollars after scoring a major victory against Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels.
According to a statement via Trump’s Save America PAC, the 9th Circuit awarded the 45th president an additional attorney fee of $245,209.67 in Clifford’s appeal following her failed lawsuit.
The court also upheld an award of $292,052.33 in attorney fees, costs, and sanctions for Trump last week after winning the case brought against him by Clifford, surrounding nonsensical allegations she crafted when he was running for president in 2016.
However, this is not the first legal battle Trump has won against the adult film actress. In 2018, the court ordered her to pay Trump a whopping $300,000 in legal fees after dismissing a defamation lawsuit.
“I never had an affair with Stormy Daniels, nor would I ever have wanted to,” Trump stated following the victory. “The ruling was a total and complete victory and vindication for, and of me.”
Unfortunately for Clifford, she now owes Trump $538,262.00, “not counting attorney fees for her appeal of the trial court attorney fee award.”
“This entire case has been nothing but a disaster for Ms. Clifford and her lawyer Michael Avenatti, from the start–a total waste of court time and resources, ending up with her owing me a large and growing amount in attorney fees that never needed to have been spent, especially since as I have stated many times, I never had an affair with her-nor would I have ever wanted to (even in her wildest imagination!),” Trump comically concluded.
