In a stunning revelation, the lawyer representing the adult film star Stormy Daniels told CNN that some of the accusations she’s making against President Donald Trump occurred while Trump was in office.
The attorney’s revelation came during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Friday afternoon.
“Is there anything in the litany of accusations — you would call them facts — that surround this case that happened while Donald Trump was President?” Tapper asked Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ lawyer, during the interview.
“Yes,” Avenatti replied.
Tapper then asked if he could elaborate, Avenatti gave a simple “no.”
Avenatti had claimed earlier Friday in an interview on MSNBC that Daniels was “physically threatened to stay silent about what she knew about Donald Trump.”
Avenatti reiterated to Tapper Friday that the public will have more details from Daniels’ upcoming interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” which is slated to air later this month.
“I think that when the American people hear from my client who will provide details — very specific details related to this threat — they will conclude, as I have, that this was not a random threat by some wing nut … out of the blue,” he told Tapper.
