Attack pit bull attorney, Michael Avenatti, has appeared imminently confident about winning his case against Donald Trump. He has spent his career defending the little guy or gal against big entities. The attorney, who may run for president against Trump in 2020, has reason to celebrate.
Unfortunately for POTUS, his longtime personal attorney and GOP finance chair co-chair, Michael Cohen, just accepted a plea deal on banking and tax fraud charges. That means Cohen must report every crime he has committed and every crime committed by those he knew to the Southern District of New York.
As part of that, Cohen pled guilty to committing a crime against Avenatti’s client, Stormy Daniels. Her attorney was pleased that Trump and Giuliani “completely misplayed” their case in two tweets:
‘Rudy Giuliani Buckle Up Buttercup. You and your client completely misplayed this. The developments of today will permit us to have the stay lifted in the civil case & should also permit us to proceed with an expedited deposition of Trump under oath about what he knew, when he knew it, and what he did about it. We will disclose it all to the public.’
Avenatti has been defending adult-entertainment star and producer, Stormy Daniels. Trump allegedly paid her $130,000 for her silence right before the 2016 election. The two had a brief sexual interaction months after the birth of his third son. The alleged crime might have included campaign finance fraud.
Daniels’ attorney said that the idea that Cohen would have committed this crime without his boss’s knowledge was ridiculous.
