Stormy Daniels’ lawyer told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Friday that some of the allegations the porn star is making against President Donald Trump took place during his time at the White House.


Michael Avenatti declined to elaborate on the details, however.

“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 Avenatti.

“Yes,” Avenatti replied.

When asked if he could elaborate, he simply said, “No.”

Avenatti said during another interview Friday that Daniels was “physically threatened to stay silent about what she knew about Donald Trump.”

He declined to say who made the threat, be it Trump or someone associated with him. Here’s some background on this mess, according to CNN, if you haven’t been keeping up:

Avenatti reiterated to Tapper Friday that the public will have more details from Daniels’ upcoming interview on CBS’ 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.

Daniels’ lawsuit that she filed last week claims [Trump’s personal lawyer Michael] Cohen signed a hush agreement [on behalf of Trump] just before the 2016 election, that is now void, related to her alleged affair with Trump in 2006. Cohen and the White House have denied there was an affair between Trump and Daniels.

The lawsuit also accuses Cohen of recently attempting to continue his efforts to silence Daniels, including initiating an arbitration proceeding against her in February.


Ironically, those good, wholesome evangelicals who abhor such behavior in other people are still good with Trump.

I wonder why?
