Accordign to BBC - Porn star Stormy Daniels says she had sex with Donald Trump in 2006 (something he denies), and she was paid to stay quiet about it ahead of the 2016 election, which Trump won.

The trial centred on a reimbursement Trump made to his former lawyer, Michael Cohen. Cohen said he was told by Trump to pay Daniels $130,000 (£104,000) to buy her silence.

Hush-money payments are not illegal. But prosecutors said Trump improperly recorded the reimbursement to Cohen as legal expenses. Trump was further accused of violating state election law.

He was convicted on 34 counts of falsifying business records.
