Elite Republicans Engaged Stormy’s Lawyer to Heckle President Trump
- The Republican Establishment Vs President
Friday, the attorney for XXXXStormy Daniels revealed on that anti-Trump elite Republicans offered him hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations in a bid to hurt the Commander-in-Chief, offers the lawyer says he has firmly rejected.
“We have turned down over $200,000 from Republican donors looking to harm the President,” Michael Avenatti says
“I can’t tell you the name of every person that I have spoken to, or not spoken to, over the last three months, but what I can tell you is that we have not taken any political-associated dollars from anyone on the right or anyone on the left. Period,” Mr. Avenatti told the NY-T’s.
Stormy, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing President Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen to get out of an NDA and a payment $130,000 arranged just before the 2016 election about an alleged dalliance President Trump over 10 years ago.
According to Mr. Avenatti, the legal fees for Ms. Daniel’s case and other expenses are being paid entirely through donations from a crowdfunding website, which has raised over $527,000 from 15,000 donors.
Mr. Avenatti taunted President Trump in an interview with Esquire magazine in which he was asked to comment on why the President had not hurled any missives at him.
“He can’t handle a direct confrontation with me. He knows that I’ll hand him his ass … He chooses targets that he perceives to be weak. Like most bullies,” Mr. Avenatti boastfully said to Esquire’s Jack Holmes.
US District Judge Kimba Wood Wednesday, sharply admonished Mr. Avenatti causing him to withdrew his request to participate in the Michael Cohen case.
Mr. Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan slammed Mr. Avenatti’s TV appearances and Tweets about about Mr. Cohen and President Trump, saying the California lawyer, who needs court permission to participate in a New York-based lawsuit, was “seeking the aggrandizement of a single attorney and his client.”
“I can’t stop you, unless you’re participating in a matter before me,” Wood said to Avenatti in the packed courtroom in Manhattan Wednesday. “Until you are admitted here, I don’t expect you to stand and be heard” at future hearings.
Goodbye Mr. Avenatti.
Have a terrific weekend.
