Avenatti Reveals Trump Admitted To Stormy Daniels That He Would Break The Law For Her

On Tuesday, Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti made an appearance on CNN to speak about the adult film star’s upcoming tell-all autobiography. What stood out from Avenatti’s interview is that he said Donald Trump told his client that he would be willing to break federal law for her.

“She touches on the fact, for instance, that Donald Trump was conspiring with her or suggesting to her that he would assist her in cheating on the show ‘The Apprentice’ and would devise a strategy whereby she could stay on the show longer than she otherwise would stay on the show,” Avenatti said. “I mean I think that says a lot about the lack of integrity of Donald Trump as a man. I mean this is an individual that lies on a consistent basis, has no qualms about lying to the American people about any number of far more important things than ‘The Apprentice.’”

Avenatti’s statement is a big deal because it is a federal crime to rig a show as Trump was trying to do to help Daniels.

According to the CQ Almanac, a law passed in the 1960s obliged quiz shows and competition shows to disclose that contestants were given “payoffs” and “other deceptive broadcasting practices.”

And according to the FCC, Trump’s show “The Apprentice” was considered a competition show.

Among other things, the Act directed, “any station employee who accepted a payment, or any person making one, to report the payment to the station prior to the broadcast.”

The law also says Trump cannot “engage in any artifice or scheme for the purpose of prearranging or predetermining in whole or in part the outcome of a purportedly bona fide contest of intellectual knowledge, intellectual skill, or chance.”
