Rex Tillerson donates 10 million dollars

Am I really about to send money to a porn star on the internet?

Yes. Yes I am.

Anything I can do, no matter how small, to contribute to pissing off Trump, I'm in.

Lordy, I hope there are tapes.

Here is the crowdfunding website

Shit gets epic if Melania pitches in.

My name is Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy Daniels).

I am attempting to speak honestly and openly to the American people about my relationship with now President Donald Trump, as well as the intimidation and tactics that he, together with his attorney Michael Cohen, have used to silence me.

In order to tell my story, I have had to file a public lawsuit in Los Angeles, California in an effort to void a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that Mr. Trump never signed and yet is trying to use to intimidate me.

Rather than agree that the NDA is invalid, thus allowing me to talk, Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen have instead attempted to hide the facts from the public using a bogus arbitration proceeding and have threatened me with millions of dollars in damages ($1M each time I speak out) if I tell the truth about what happened.

I recently made an offer to return the $130,000 I was previously paid if it was agreed that I could simply tell the truth publicly. Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen did not even bother to respond.

I need funds to pay for: attorneys' fees; out-of-pocket costs associated with the lawsuit, arbitration, and my right to speak openly; security expenses; and damages that may be awarded against me if I speak out and ultimately lose to Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen.

I am more fortunate than many, many people in this country. And for that I am grateful. But unfortunately, I do not have the vast resources to fight Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen alone. Thank you for supporting me.

Stormy Daniels is now going to pass Jeff Bezos on next year's Forbes rankings

Just tell your wife you need to pay a stripper for the sake of the country

I'll start with $20, and everytime Trump tells a lie, I'll add $5.

I should be at $1500 by tomorrow morning.

“at least” three people have offered to give Daniels $1 million so she can speak freely about her relationship with Trump.

That's according to Daniels' lawyer. Steyer very well may be one of the 3 people mentioned.

... and The Clinton Foundation. Please?!

5 years ago me would be awfully confused about the nature of my charitable donations this year.

Where's Mr. Tom Steyer when you need him?

GOP is pissing itself over last night's election. Now it's time to get pissed on, too. Pour it on.

The only time I will ever pay for porn.

My 2 passions:

Fuck with Trump

Porn

I am in!

Strange times we're living in. I'm tossing money her way as well.

And Open Society (Soros' foundation), just to see Alex Jones' head explode.

RIP your bank account

You know some rando billionaire (Mark Cuban would be lol) might just bored and fiesty enough to donate just to see it.

freakin bitcoin is gonna cause the release of presidential dick pics.

Edit: I'm going to try and update this throughout the day. Here is the data since your post.

Time Elapsed Current Amount Current Pace 7 Minutes $1, 645 $22/min 60 Minutes $3, 596 $35/min 80 Minutes $4, 512 $37/min 100 Minutes $5, 960 $44/min 120 Minutes $7, 702 $51/min 180 Minutes $13, 712 $67/Min 360 Minutes $41,228 $110/Min 410 Minutes $46,971 $110/min

Edit: I stopped when the post was removed by the mods. I see it's back now and I've failed you all.

3 Million means 3 juicy details. Or 2 details and a dick pic.

Is there any guaranty she will actually break the NDA or is this potentially just her getting a whole bunch of money for nothing?

Oprah should chime in for good measure too.

there's probably dozens of 22 year old tech start up assholes with millions in "for shits and giggles" funds for this very scenario.

This is smart. She already has the funding but this way it makes it difficult for her to be accused of bias.

If any famous leftie donated publicly the right would scream that it was a political attack.

Putin donating would the ultimate cherry on top.

This is the stupidest goddamn timeline

Super Troopers 2

My instinct is to just torrent her a donation, but...

She’s already filmed a 60 Minutes interview.

Strange times we are living in.

I said the same thing to my friend, asking how weird it would be to have my future children read about this in American history books in school. His mother interjected, claiming every president other than Obama had some sort of ludicrous scandal of this proportion. This is career-ending in any other presidency, and to believe otherwise would be absurd.

I know who I'm throwing a bill at come payday. Thanks!

This is good for bitcoin.

Cmon Tom Steyer. You blew millions upon millions of dollars going on TV saying a compromised GOP congress should impeach Trump. Just drop $1m+ to really put a damper on the Trump presidency!

His supporters wouldn't care if he got caught on video sucking little boy dicks on the White House steps.

$2,110 pledged by 69 people

Nice

So 2 juicy details and a smaller, desiccated detail?

Anyone that believes we've ever experienced anything like this before, is intentionally deluding themselves.

$1,485 raised so far. Got a long road ahead of her.

thats what trump said

So.... this feels like a grift. Don't get me wrong, I think Stormy has credible allegations and possible evidence of her affair with Trump, and the entire story has relevance due to potential campaign finance violations/blackmailing Trump, but the rationale for seeking crowd funding doesn't make sense:

“I am attempting to speak honestly and openly to the American people about my relationship with now President Donald Trump and the intimidation and tactics used against me,” Daniels says on her new fundraising website, which became active Wednesday morning.

“But unfortunately, I do not have the vast resources to fight Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen alone,” she writes. “Thank you for supporting me.”

vs.

Avenatti told CNN last week that “at least” three people have offered to give Daniels $1 million so she can speak freely about her relationship with Trump.

“We could have easily gone out and secretly raised millions from a number of ‘fat cat’ donors who don’t like the president,” Avenatti told The Post on Wednesday. “But that isn’t in the spirit of what this is about.”

You need $... but you want to raise transparent money from the general public? Like, come on, you're not running for office with a Bernie Sanders anti-citizens-united platform; you're looking for money to "cover your legal costs" and pocket the difference.

And financial support, from viewers like you.

Can we all just take a moment to imagine what it would be like if Trump was the first sitting president to get divorced?

First donor on the list in comments. "Melania has donated $10" I don't know if it's that funny to anyone else. I can't stop laughing.

Merry Christmas, George Bailey!

Crowdsourced vs big donor = "will of the people" vs "attack the donor".

Yes, and also dropped new facts that are being factchecked this week. Should be a interesting interview to say the least.

$100,000 Pledged by G. Soros

Faux & Friends heads explode

her Czech book.....

I never thought I would be donating anything to anyone but this year I have donated to Beto in Texas and now a pornstar. What a weird time in my life I am living.

According to that podcast that explains it all really well, there are text messages and images...

Melania gets out her check book....

"Pour it on" is a phenomenal slogan for any populist Democrat running in the midterms.

Yep, me too, sent $25. At 50 y.o., never donated to politics in my life, Democrats have been getting my money. If current politics are opening my wallet, there will likely be a tsunami of opposition to all this Trump nonsense.

everytime Trump tells a lie, I'll add $5

Your great grandkids are going to be struggling to pay off your estate debt.

I'm in full support of Stormy and her badass lawyer, but I'm a bit confused; if the NDA is invalid, then why is crowdfunding necessary? Is this just an easier alternative to going after the NDA directly?

Edit: Thanks guys, I get the impression that the lawsuit will just take a lot of time and work but if they can raise enough money for one violation then they can air the 60 minutes interview which fulfills a lot of the same purposes as contesting the NDA anyway

She's already provided far more than nothing.

add a little deep state fundraising in there too.

Thank you.

He won't. She doesn't like him. She likes money. His shitty behavior isn't something that she gives a fuck about.

The big payout isn't this, it's the money she'll get for telling her story. This lady's been out and about and working her tail off these last few months, I'm glad for it.

If you add $5 every time Trump tells a lie, you will go bankrupt within the week.

No matter what Trump will attempt to sue her g-string off and she will need money to defend yourself and prove it is invalid because it hasn't been proven in court yet.

So if she can raise 1 million she can tell the story once and that's all it's necessary the media is perfectly free to repeat it as many times as they want to.

You know they will anyway

I imagine there is a Stormy Daniels Bingo to made of what GOP-ambivalence inducing things are in that "new material"

He had her pee on a picture of Obama He had her wear a Hillary mask He made her get an abortion several months later She was introduced to Putin

Can't wait to see.

That's more than porn stars make!

touches pinky to lip

Which is a why I just laugh at the people who say that Trump will never be impeached, that he's too rich and white to go to jail, that Democrats can't win a congressional majority, etc., etc. ... not because I think I'm totally sure what's going to happen, but because they are. They have just as little a clue as I do, and they're basing their opinions on precedents that have no value, because we've never seen a situation remotely like this before.

Idk, I quite like the idea of crowd funding a shit storm for Trump. Has a nice taste of populism for Donald to suck on.

Hell, where’s Larry Flint? This is right up his alley.

That's more than I make :(

Opening Arguments. It's a lawyer doing his best to explain it all, and this guy is rather convincing. It's mentioned a lot on Reddit at the moment, it's probably had a huge spike in downloads.

I'm Team Stormy all the way, but the free advertising her attorney is getting for taking on the POTUS should be sufficient to cover his expense. he should be doing this pro bono. there are candidates that need that money more than stormy's lawyer.

While I am anti-trump, this seems silly/stupid and I'd never "donate" to this. She's going to make a fortune with interviews and what I would assume be a more detailed "tell all" book. She's just taking advantage of the Trump hate to take money from the general populace.

I also can't imagine there isn't an attorney / firm that would take on this case just for the publicity and a kickback for any legal fees for winning the case.

I do not understand why people are blindly donating. It is far too early to make any sort of judgement when the "60 Minutes" interview has yet-to-be aired.

Her lawyer, Avenatti has proclaimed:

“We could have easily gone out and secretly raised millions from a number of ‘fat cat’ donors who don’t like the president,” Avenatti told The Post on Wednesday. “But that isn’t in the spirit of what this is about.”

Yet, Avenatti has already told CNN that “at least” three people have offered to give Daniels $1 million, with no strings attached, but wants to refuse out of some undeclared reason of ethicality, despite this not being purposefully raised but an actual donation on behalf of those individuals? It doesn't make any sense and does require elaboration.

I am literally quoting everything from the one article in the OP.

There is no reason to donate at this very moment (perhaps in the coming week(s)) and I do not understand the mentality of calling those who are skeptical as Trump supporters trying to derail the conversation.

It's a fucking voluntary donation, not a hate act.

Who else have you donated to?

Can confirm. Conservative Jesus gets divorces and bangs porn stars.

She probably isn't, but she hired intelligent attorneys. Meanwhile, Donny is stuck with a Cooley Law grad as they're the only ones dumb enough to get stiffed over and over.

I bet we can get a bunch of athletes to donate also. We all know he hates the majority of them because their skin is the wrong tone.

This is a well-crafted bit of statesmanship.

Just listened yesterday - highly recommended.

Tl;dl: Stormy Daniels is a legal genius

I'm strongly considering it. I clicked the button and started to do it, but now I'm hesitating.

I no longer believe that any appeal to ethics will bring down Trump. Absent that, I'm not sure I want to contribute to what is ultimately a money-making venture by Stormy.

Trump's a treasonous piece of shit, but the basis of Stormy's relationship with him was for money too. She's also a piece of shit, albeit one that I very much prefer to look at.

I'd rather let a couple billionaires with an axe to grind fund this.

Anything I can do, no matter how small, to contribute to pissing off Trump, I'm in.

That's actually really compelling to me. Maybe I will.

yeah, tom steyer would get way more bang for his buck , by buying out people who signed NDA's with Trump

Either way it's a win.

NDA invalid: we get all the correspondence and details, she makes a shit load of money

NDA valid: either Trump or his conspiritors or implicated in the agreement, thus validating these activities transpired. Now, with this fundraiser, she can make public the correspondence and details without fear of financial ruin.

Either way, no matter how you break it down, it seems that an adult film actress has better legal counsel than the sitting president of the United States.

Yes. It's time I give something back anyway, they are unsung heroes, satisfying the needs of anonymous masturbators all over the world.

I think it’s along the same vein as a grassroots politician who refuses to take donations from special interests—it says a lot more to raise $3 million from a million ordinary Americans than to raise $3 million from a few notable politicians. It becomes a will of the people thing, instead of just a partisan ploy. Particularly for someone like Trump, for whom popularity is everything. If he saw a few million people donating to this, it will eat at him.

Let's tweet a link at Melania.

Dicks Wallets out for Stormy!

Everyone should pledge money in melania trumps name. Would love see “Melania pledged $100.” On there.

I'm in for $200

That's actually pretty reasonable. She's not even asking for the full 130k to pay back the original settlement.

EDIT: The absolute best-case scenario is that a judge declares that the contract is only valid between her and EC LLC, so she gets to keep the $130k, but can still tell her tale because Trump is the only one with standing to collect if she violates the agreement and HE'S NOT A PARTY TO IT! God that would be wonderful.

One million dollars.

Trump would have to admit to being the guy in the NDA to do that, which presents a much, much bigger problem - illegal campaign donation.

I just listened to it before seeing this post.. it sounds like Trump's only possible responses to the lawsuit are either to say he is DD and admit to campaign finance crimes or to allow the "property," the pictures and text messages to be released.

Trump saying that he is DD is the only way to make the contract legal, and then it becomes public record that pictures and text messages exist.

$1 donation from some guy named "Mike Moore" in Alaska:

"Liberal funded democratic hack Stormy Daniels getting donations from Michael Moore and Soros? Hannity breaks it down at 8"

I'd like to see Stormy go on Shark Tank with a book deal offer. Just need to take care of that overhead first.

That would be some good ratings.
