Six Other Women Have Come Forward Alleging Sexual Relationship With Trump, Lawyer Tells CNN
Six additional women have come forward alleging sexual relationships with President Donald Trump, including some he says who also claim to have nondisclosure agreements, CNN reported Friday, citing the lawyer representing Stormy Daniels.
“We’ve been approached by six separate women who have claimed to have similar stories to that of my client,” Michael Avenatti told CNN’s “New Day” Friday morning. “Two of them — at least two have nondisclosure agreements. We’re in the very early stages of vetting those stories,” he added.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked, “Do these women, in terms of what their allegations are at this point before you vet them, do they all involve the President of the United States?
“Yes,” Avenatti replied.
The lawyer refused to provide the names of any women nor any details of the circumstances of their alleged involvement with Trump. Avenatti also told Cuomo his legal team has “not vetted these stories to a great degree” and said it was possible he won’t represent the women.
In a separate interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Avenatti revealed that Daniels had been threatened with physical harm in connection to her alleged affair with the president, saying she’ll disclose more details in an upcoming “60 Minutes” interview later this month.
MSNBC commentator Donny Deutsch warned Trump’s presidency could be in jeopardy if Daniels confirms that she was threatened with physical harm.
“Is it fair to say, legal aside, if Stormy Daniels comes out and says that she was…physically threatened harm by either the president himself or somebody very close, that, and it seems to be credible, that, in and of itself would bring down this presidency, with what is going on in the world right now,” Deutsch said.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has filed a complaint against the President over a nondisclosure agreement she claims is void.
The agreement was made just before the 2016 election with Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, who paid Daniels $130,000 for her silence about an alleged affair she had with Trump in 2006.
The payment, which Cohen admitted to making, was made through a private LLC linked to the Trump Organization.
