The plot continues to thicken in the scandal between Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump. Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ lawyer, claims that the relationship between POTUS’ lawyer Michael Cohen and his “mystery third client” Sean Hannity is more involved than either initially suggested.
During an interview with CNN Sunday, Avenatti said: “I think that the relationship is going to be far more extensive than Mr. Hannity has led people to believe.”
He added, “I don’t know that there’s anything nefarious that went on between Mr. Hannity and Mr. Cohen, or that there was any NDA-type involvement or anything of that nature but what I do know is I think it’s going to be far more extensive than people have been led to believe.”
He didn’t elaborate on their relationship in the interview, but he said that he has been involved in similar cases and that he “fair amount of information at his disposal involved.”
“My intuition is pretty spot on,” said Avenatti. “We are going to continue shooting till we missed and we haven’t missed yet.”
In case you haven’t caught wind of this scandal, Cohen admitted to arranging an NDA with Daniels and paid $130,000 out of his own pocket for her alleged affair with Trump. Since then, the story has unfolded into many legal twists and turns as well as a mainstay in the news cycle. Daniels has spoken to Anderson Cooper about the affair and, most recently, appeared on The View to unveil a sketch of a man who allegedly threatened her over her Trump affair claims.
