Stormy Daniels testimony on sex, lies, and money was risky for both sides

NEW YORK - Stormy Daniels finished testifying Thursday in Donald Trump's criminal trial, capping a tumultuous day and a half of courtroom accusations, denials and counter-accusations that infuriated Trump, briefly raised the risk of a mistrial and left the jury to decide whether the adult-film actress's tale of secret sex should matter in a financial crimes case.

Daniels first took the stand on Tuesday, describing in sometimes disturbing language what she said was an evening in 2006 when she and the businessman-turned-reality TV star had sex in a Lake Tahoe hotel.

Trump, the former president who is also the presumptive GOP nominee, listened intently to what she said, at times reacting so audibly that the judge warned his attorneys that he could be intimidating the witness and must stop.
