Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti is suiting up for a battle with President Donald Trump and his attorney Michael Cohen.
During an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Avenatti revealed he has looked at two nondisclosure agreements that he believes are likely associated with Trump. He clarified that he is unsure if they were done in conjunction with the same LLC Cohen used with Daniels and he hasn't fully vetted the stories from the multiple women that have come forward.
Cohen's attorney and friend David Schwartz earlier told Cooper that he is eager for Trump's lawyer to score millions in breaches of the NDA with punitive damages.
Avenatti celebrated the legal threat.
"Anderson, this is like Christmas and Hanukkah all rolled into one for me tonight," he said. "I'm ecstatic. I think this is -- this is, perhaps, the greatest gift that I've ever received. If Michael Cohen and President Trump want to drag this out and get into a street fight over the recovery, 'of these millions of dollars' for an American citizen speaking the truth, I think this is outstanding. And I'm really looking forward to the next two, three, four, five, years. However long it take. we're not going to be intimidated by Mr. Schwartz or Mr. Cohen or the president."
He went on to say that they fully intend to fight them at every turn.
"We're going to bring it," he continued. "And we're going to let a court and, perhaps, a jury, ultimately decide who's telling the truth and who's not telling the truth. And, Anderson, this situation has gotten so unseemly that now the attorney needs an attorney. So, at first it was President Trump, then he was relying on Mr. Cohen. Now Mr. Cohen is relying on his friend, an attorney. And, frankly, Anderson, where is Michael Cohen? I mean, where is this guy? This guy prides himself on being a fixer. He ends tweets with #RayDonovan. He actually refers to himself as Ray Donovan. Why won't he come on your show or any other show and sit here like I do and answer simple questions? Where is this guy?"
