WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA – Michael Avenatti, an attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels, said Thursday he now represents three more women claiming to have had affairs with President Donald Trump. Avenatti also claims the trio of women were paid “hush money” before the 2016 election, according to Huffington Post.
The lawyer disclosed the information at a community forum in West Hollywood, California. Avenatti wouldn’t provide additional information because he didn’t have permission from his clients to share specifics. However, he did say he has evidence of the women’s affairs with Trump, the news website reported.
“Last time I checked they weren’t just handing out checks to anyone whether they had a relationship or not,” Avenatti said.
The Stormy Daniels trial hasn’t even begun yet, but the case has had a long ranging impact as allegations of hush payments led authorities to investigate the payments as possibly illegal campaign donations. It led to a raid on the office of Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, driving a wedge between the president and his long-time personal attorney.
Avenatti said Trump and Cohen should come forward and reveal information about the three women and their alleged relationships with the president, according to Huffington Post.
A federal judge in Los Angeles today took under submission a request by Cohen’s lawyer, Brent H. Blakely, who is seeking a gag order against Avenatti, who’s been relentless in attacking the president’s former fixer in television appearances. Blakely argues that a restraining order is necessary because Avenatti has appeared more than 170 times on television and posted over 500 tweets smearing Cohen in order to litigate his case “in the court of public opinion,” according to documents filed in the case.
Earlier this week, audio recordings were released where Trump and Cohen appear to be discussing a payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, USA Today reported. The recording took place in September 2016, two months before the election, and was first provided to CNN by Lanny Davis, Cohen’s attorney, the website reported.
