Trump hush money trial: Play-by-play on Day 2 of Stormy Daniels testimony


Adult film star Stormy Daniels took the stand for a second time Thursday as former U.S. president Donald Trump's hush money case continues in Manhattan.

Trump is accused of scheming to illegally influence the 2016 presidential campaign by suppressing stories about him.
