Stormy’s lawyer shreds Trump’s attorney for claiming ‘not to know’ if president is party to hush agreement

Published

on

Michael Avenatti, lawyer for Stormy Daniels, on Wednesday revealed that lawyers for President Donald Trump claimed not to know if he was party to a hush agreement with the adult film star.

In a motion filed in Los Angeles overnight, Avenatti asked for Trump to be deposed over an alleged affair he had with the adult film star, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

While speaking to CBS News on Wednesday, Avenatti explained that the motion was “relying on Supreme Court precedent” which ruled that President Bill Clinton was required to sit for a similar deposition.

“What we want is, we want the truth,” he said. “We want to know the truth about what the president knew, when he knew it and what he did about it as it relates to this agreement. We’re going to test the veracity or the truthfulness of Mr. Cohen’s, his attorney’s, statements. And we’re confident that when we get to the bottom of this, we’re going to prove to the American people that they have been told a bucket of lies.”

Avenatti said that he recently met with Trump’s attorney, who claimed he did not know if the president was party to the non-disclosure agreement with Clifford.

“They don’t know,” he said. “He said they don’t know yet whether Mr. Trump was a party to this agreement. How do you now know whether you’re a party to an agreement unless you’re just trying to to make it up as you go along.”

Avenatti also responded to criticism from David Schwartz, the lawyer for Michael Cohen, an attorney who represents Trump.

“Schwartz is a hack straight out of central casting,” Clifford’s lawyer charged. “Next question.”

President Donald Trump has been sinking in the polls for weeks, as a combination of a deadly pandemic, freefalling economy, and nationwide racial unrest has started to undermine even some of his steadfast supporters' confidence in his ability to lead the nation. But for a long time, the financial industry and betting markets at least were more bullish on the president's ability to pull off another win.

‘As bad as it gets’: GOP consultants have a secret admission about Trump — and a have a word of warning to ‘Lincoln Project’ Republicans

Published

on

Fox News and AM talk radio are full of GOP strategists and consultants who are happy to go on the air and recite pro-Trump talking points, but it’s often the anonymous quotes in outlets outside the right-wing bubble that offer insights on what Republicans are really thinking about President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign. Never Trump conservative Tim Miller interviewed nine different GOP consultants for a Rolling Stone article published this week, and they candidly discussed Trump’s chances of winning a second term.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper exposes Trump’s lies on COVID deaths: He ‘doesn’t want you to know the whole story’

Published

On CNN Tuesday, anchor Anderson Cooper laid into President Donald Trump for his false narratives about the coronavirus pandemic.

"New modeling from the University of Washington today forecasts 208,000 people in this country may be dead of COVID-19 by Election Day," said Cooper. "Which the president still does not seem to think is all that bad. Because he is still repeating the same falsehoods as ever about testing and mortality, which fell for a while, but is once again sadly, sickeningly, ticking up."

"We have more cases because we're doing more testing," said Trump in the clip. "We have more cases. If we did half the testing, we'd have far fewer cases but people don't view it that way. What they have to view, though, is if you look at the chart, and maybe Mike has it, but we looked at it before, if you look at the chart of deaths, deaths are way down. What we want to do is get our schools open. We want to get them open quickly, beautifully in the fall."
