Adult porn star Stormy Daniels is declaring victory even as her lawsuit was dismissed against President Donald Trump over payment she received to cover up an extramarital affair she had with him ahead of the 2016 election.
"Correction: Judge tosses out NDA!" she tweeted, referring to the nondisclosure agreement she had signed with a shell company set up by then-candidate Trump's former lawyer.
"More than a year ago when I was being threatened with a 20 million lawsuit," she explained, "I asked a judge to toss out this illegal NDA. Glad I stood my ground & kept fighting."

"Be clear: The Court specifically found that Stormy received everything she asked for in the lawsuit - she won," he added. "How people can claim this is a "loss" after we forced Trump and Cohen to cave and Cohen has been convicted, etc. is a mystery."
Cohen, who was once a vehement defender of the president, testified that he committed campaign finance violations at the behest of Trump. He also called him a racist and a liar in recent dramatic testimony before Congress.
