Michael Avenatti, attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels is eager to see President Donald Trump be dragged into a Los Angeles court room as their lawsuit continues to move forward.
“The problem is, he’s trusted a moron with his inner-most secrets,” Avenatti said of Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen. “And the problem is that he has surrounded himself in his adult life with people that are incompetent and the chickens are going to come home to roost.”
HBO host Bill Maher, however, doesn’t think Trump will even show up in court.
“Well, that’s going to set off what’s called a Constitutional crisis,” Avenatti warned.
“You think he gives a f*cke?” Maher asked.
“Well, I think he should,” Avenatti noted.
“He — should? Donald Trump should? Hello! He should do a lot of things,” Maher said. “And then what happens if he doesn’t show up?”
Avenatti explained that they might even sent out the U.S. Marshals for Trump if he doesn’t show up in court. “But I look forward to that if it happened. I think it’d be fantastic.”
Maher made the case that Trump is above the law. Avenatti said that Trump thinks that he is above the law. Maher explained that the way that Congress would have to go through impeachment is overwhelming.
“I would agree with that, Bill, but I think that Michael Cohen knows where all of the bodies are buried,” Avenatti said. “And I think he’s going to sing like a canary. Like you cannot — Bill, here’s the problem — no I know he’s going to fold. Because, here’s the problem: when you have a fixer you need two things at least, you need a guy that’s tough and you need a guy that’s smart. This guy is neither tough nor smart.”
He went on to call Cohen “a zero.”
Avenatti was quick on the quips, noting that Sean Hannity said that he gave Cohen $10 once. “By the way, I think he paid $9 too much.”
