Stormy Daniels said she was riding a horse named Redemption when she heard the shocking news of Trump's indictment: report
Donald Trump's grand jury indictment likely concerns a hush-money payment made to Stormy Daniels.
Daniels told The Times of London that she heard the news while riding her horse named, Redemption.
She said she used some of the $130,000 to purchase a horse trailer.
Stormy Daniels heard the news about former President Donald Trump's indictment, which stemmed from an investigation into a $130,000 payment that was made to the adult film actress in 2016, while riding a horse named Redemption.
"There's something really ironic and hilarious that I got the news about the indictment while I was sitting on a horse named Redemption," Daniels told The Times of London.
According to the publication, Daniels, who is also an equestrian, said she used part of the $130,000 payment to purchase a horse trailer.
The Manhattan district attorney's office has been investigating Trump's business and personal finances for nearly five years after Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, admitted on August 2018 that he arranged hush-money payments for two women, including Daniels. When Cohen pleaded guilty in federal court, he alleged that Trump directed the payment.
That investigation culminated on Thursday after it was reported that a Manhattan grand jury voted to indict Trump.
The exact criminal charges are not yet known, but sources told CNN that Trump faces more than 30 counts including low-level felony charges.
The news of Trump's indictment came as "a shock" to Daniels, according to The Times. "There was no warning," she said.
Recently, Daniels has taken to social media to clap back at Trump supporters. When the indictment was reported, Daniels said she saw "Team Stormy" merch purchases skyrocket.
She also began to receive violent threats across "all social media platforms, and email, and phone," hours after the indictment was reported, according to The Times.
"The number and the intensity is the same as it was the first time around, but this time it's straight-up violent," she told The Times. "The first time it was 'gold digger,' 'slut,' 'whore,' 'liar,' whatever. And this time it's 'I'm gonna murder you.' They're way more violent and graphic."
