Stormy Daniels’ Attorney Ridicules Trump After He Implicates Himself In The Stormy Daniels Cover-Up During Fox & Friends Interview

Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti taunts Trump, predicting doom and gloom in the wake of his ill-advised interview on Fox and Friends. 

Michael Avenatti is back at it, taunting Trump on Twitter after he managed to implicate himself in possible criminal conduct regarding the attempt to cover up his extramarital affair with Stormy Daniels.

Trump did a phone-in interview with “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning to discuss Ronny Jackson’s withdrawal from consideration as head of the Veterans Administration, former FBI Director James Comey’s book, Kanye West – and, of course, his personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Asked about Cohen’s relationship with him as an attorney, Trump stated: “Just so you understand – I have many attorneys. I have attorneys, sadly I have so many attorneys you wouldn’t believe it.”

Asked how much of his legal work was handled by Michael Cohen, Trump responded: “As a percentage of my overall legal work a tiny tiny little fraction, but Michael would represent me and represent me on some things. He represents me like with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal. He represented me, and you know – from what I see he did absolutely nothing wrong. There were no campaign funds going into this which would have been a problem.”

Asked why Cohen was pleading the fifth if he didn’t do anything wrong, Trump said that it was because of his business deals and went on to distance himself from Cohen.

“Because he’s got other things. He’s got businesses,” Trump responded, adding: “From what I understand, they’re looking into his businesses and I hope he’s in great shape. And he’s got businesses and his lawyers probably told him to do that [plead the fifth]. I’m not involved and I’ve been told I’m not involved. I’ve been told I’m not involved.”

Avenatti was quick on the draw, taking to his Twitter account roughly half an hour before the interview aired to predict doom and gloom for Trump.

“Thank you @foxandfriends for having Mr. Trump on this morning to discuss Michael Cohen and our case. Very informative,” he tweeted.

Shortly after the airing of the show, Avenatti returned to Twitter to taunt Trump over his admission that Cohen had indeed represented him in regards to the Stormy Daniels affair.

“Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen previously represented to the American people that Mr. Cohen acted on his own and Mr. Trump knew nothing about the agreement with my client, the $130k payment, etc. As I predicted, that has now been shown to be completely false,” he tweeted, using his now-familiar sign-off “#basta” which means “no more” in Italian.

He echoed that sentiment during an appearance on “Morning Joe,” calling the Fox interview “another gift from the heavens.”

Continuing, he stated that:

It’s a hugely damaging admission by the president, because according to what he said on Air Force One a few weeks ago, he didn’t know anything about the agreement, he didn’t know anything about the payment, Michael Cohen went off and did this on a lark and Mr. Trump knew nothing about it. We now find out that that’s bogus.
