Romney Weighs In On Trump Hearing, Slams Trump

(FeaturedHeadlines.com) Republican Senator Mitt Romney of Utah lashed out at former president Donald Trump for denying his physical relationship with adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Romney suggested that Trump had no need to pay $130,000 to Daniels if he never engaged in a physical relationship with her.

The senator, who would retire from Congress after completing his current term in January 2025, said that he trusts Daniels’ version of events that she slept with the former president.

Romney is one of the seven Republican senators who voted to convict Trump in the aftermath of the January 6 chaos. He has previously called Trump a “fraud” and “phony” person.

Trump is currently facing a criminal trial for a hush money payment of $130,000 to Stormy Daniels. Daniels has claimed multiple times that she met Donald Trump in 2006 at a golf tournament in Nevada, where Trump invited her to dinner followed by an intimate relationship between the two.

She also revealed that she was never attracted to Trump and did not want to get physical with him, but still, she did not resist, and everything was consensual between them.

Daniels opened up about her relationship with Trump for the first time in 2011 and hinted that she would describe the whole episode at an appropriate time.

In 2016, Daniels was expected to appear in an interview to discuss her relationship with Trump ahead of the presidential elections. However, Trump’s lawyer at that time, Michael Cohen, paid $130,000 to Daniels to not speak about her relationship with then-Republican candidate Trump. While Cohen paid the money out of his own pocket, he later received $420,000 from Trump in installments to compensate for the hush money.

In 2018, Daniels discussed the whole event in detail, which prompted then-President Trump to accuse her of breaching the Non-Disclosure Agreement. However, Daniels maintained that the NDA was never enforced since Trump did not sign it.

Trump has denied sleeping with Daniels and pleaded not guilty to the charges.
