At the heart of the case lies a scheme orchestrated by Trump to silence Stormy Daniels, a porn star who alleged a sexual encounter with him in the days preceding the 2016 election. Facing the prospect of damaging revelations that could jeopardize his presidential aspirations, Trump directed his lawyer to facilitate a $130,000 payment to Daniels in exchange for her silence.
