What a racket Donald Trump’s personal attorney had going with another attorney. The two men worked together to make certain that the president’s accusers never came up for air. Now, one of the attorneys has flipped, and he has decades of dirt to dish out.
Both adult entertainment actress and director, Stormy Daniels, and former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, hired Keith Davidson to represent them. Little did they know that Davidson was working with Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
Daniels new attorney, Michael Avenatti , is a pit bull with predictions that should chill 45 to the bone. He has predicted that Trump will resign.
The Southern District New York attorney general’s office, an attorney general who happened to be one appointed by Trump, sent the FBI to Cohen’s home, office, temporary residence, and even the bank where he kept his safety deposit boxes. The feds found a goldmine of information in the 11 electronic devices they harvested from Trump’s self-described “fixer.”
Davidson said the commander-in-chief’s personal attorney urged him to “spill my guts,” according to The Daily Beast:
‘He suggested that it would be appropriate for me to go out into the media and spill my guts.’
The women’s attorney had worked in tandem with Cohen to negotiate hush agreements for at least two of Trump’s mistresses. The attorneys paid Daniels $130,000 to stay silent and paid McDougal $150,000 for a “catch and kill” article. The National Enquirer paid the money with no intent of ever publishing it.
McDougal’s new attorney, Peter Stris, was “very confident,” the Daily Beast Reported:
‘I am very confident that Michael Cohen and Keith Davidson and others will have to account for the things that they have done.’
Stris appeared on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show. He told the host that Cohen and Davidson were not “faithfully representing people:”
‘The reason people like Michael Cohen and Keith Davidson are creating all of this mischief is because they’re not faithfully representing people. We see this pattern of powerful men—and it often happens to be the same ones here, Michael Cohen and Keith Davidson—doing these deals. I am very confident that Michael Cohen and Keith Davidson and others will have to account for the things that they have done.’
A third woman, former Playboy model and actress, Shera Bechard, had hired Davidson and walked away with $1.6 million and a hush agreement with Trump. Stris now represents her, too.
Davidson’s spokesman, Dave Wedge, admitted in a statement that Davidson and Cohen had a long history of cooperating. He said Davidson was “one of hundreds” attorneys:
‘Attorney Davidson has represented a few clients referred to him from a variety of different sources in which opposing counsel was Michael Cohen. He is one of hundreds, if not thousands, of lawyers Attorney Davidson has dealt with over his 18 years as a lawyer. Their relationship is purely professional and they have met in person only a couple of times in professional settings.’
In a CNN special program, correspondent Sara Sidner asked Davidson to describe his first conversation with Cohen:
‘Well, I think there’s a lot of chest pounding. To the best of my recollection, it was a lot of, you know, “how dare you” and, you know, “we’ll chase you to the ends of the earth,’ and ‘this is not a true story’ and, you know, ‘we’re going to come and get you.”‘
Sidner asked Davidson why he agreed to appear on CNN, the attorney responded:
‘I’d like the truth to come out. To the extent that I can assist in that endeavor, that’s really why I’m here.’
Then, the host asked “Is the whole truth out yet?” and Sidner responded:
‘I don’t believe so. I think most of it. Not the whole truth.’
