Stormy Daniels, the adult film star at the center of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment against Donald Trump, has spoken to Fox Nation.

She sat with host Piers Morgan for an interview in which she said she would testify against the former president if asked. She also said that even she does not think Trump should be incarcerated based on this case.

“I just finished an astonishing 90-minute interview with Stormy Daniels,” the interviewer said on Twitter. “Everyone’s had their say about her, now she tells HER story about the fling that may send President Trump to prison.”

“It’s daunting, but I look forward to it. You know what I mean? Because I have nothing to hide,” Daniels said of testifying. “I’m the only one that has been telling the truth. And, you know, it can’t shame me anymore.”

“I think having them call me in and put me on the stand legitimizes my story and who I am. And if they don’t, it almost feels like they’re hiding me,” she said.

She does not believe he deserves to be imprisoned in the hush money case, but had thoughts on other cases against him.

“I don’t think that his crimes against me are worthy of incarceration,” she said. “I feel like the other things that he has done, if he is found guilty. Absolutely.”

Earlier this week, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals awarded Donald Trump $121,962.56 in attorney fees from Daniels.

The nearly $122,00 is in addition to the roughly $500,000 that she was ordered to pay him last year.

The ruling came down as Trump was in lower Manhattan, New York, on Tuesday afternoon and in the courtroom. He pleaded not guilty to 34 charges regarding allegations that he falsified business records related to Daniels’s hush money case.

Trump was indicted late last week by a Manhattan grand jury in a case involving his purported role in hush money payments to Daniels ahead of the 2016 election, allegedly to keep Daniels quiet about an affair the two of them had in 2006.

The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling is separate from the Manhattan case.

Judge Juan Merchan ruled late on Monday night that he will allow five pool photographers to snap for several minutes before the arraignment but declared that no cameras will be allowed in the courtroom once the hearing begins.

“That this indictment involves a matter of monumental significance cannot possibly be disputed. Never in the history of the United States has a sitting or past President been indicted on criminal charges,” Merchan said.

The judge said he “needed to balance other interests” and that no electronic devices will be allowed in either the main or overflow courtrooms.

Several Republicans have come out in support of Trump.

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz responded: “The Democrat Party’s hatred for Donald Trump knows no bounds. The ‘substance’ of this political persecution is utter garbage. This is completely unprecedented and is a catastrophic escalation in the weaponization of the justice system.”

Missouri GOP Sen. Josh Hawley said: “Tonight’s indictment of Donald Trump isn’t about the law. It’s about power. Raw power. It’s the Democrat Party telling the nation they will stop at nothing to control the outcome of the next presidential election. It is an assault on our democracy, pure and simple.”

Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and 2024 GOP presidential candidate, tweeted: “From everything I have seen from this New York district attorney is that this would be something he’d be doing for political points. I think what we know is, when you get into political prosecutions like this, it’s more about revenge than it is about justice.”

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis said last week after the indictment was announced that the state would not cooperate with any request to extradite Trump.

“The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head. It is un-American. The Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent. Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda,” he said.
