Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels, revealed on Sunday that evidence will show that President Donald Trump participated in his personal attorney’s business of selling access to top government officials.
While speaking to Joy Reid on MSNBC, Avenatti pointed to the news that Trump attorney Michael Cohen had met with agents of foreign governments to sell access to the president and other officials.
“This is a president that people have routinely stated that he insists on knowing what’s going on around him,” Avenatti explained. “He absolutely despises people who are trying to make money on his ‘back’ without his knowledge.”
“In my view, there was no question he knew what was going on here in relation to Michael Cohen selling access,” he continued. “And I think when all the evidence comes out, there’s going to be substantial evidence that not only did he know about it, but he participated in it.”
Avenatti added: “This whole mantra by [Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani] about draining the swamp, it’s an absolute joke. These guys have created a swamp within this administration that makes the everglades look like a backyard plastic pool. I mean, they’ll say or do anything at this point to distract away from the evidence that we uncover, to distract away from the Mueller investigation, which is picking up steam. I mean, they will literally do anything to divert attention from the facts and the truth.”

‘Everyone knows what to expect’ at Trump’s Amway Center re-election kickoff
Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?
Tuesday, he'll make his big pitch.
The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."
There's little mystery about how the night will go down.
Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.
Florida man’s own family blasts him after he was arrested for racist threats: ‘This isn’t how we were raised’
After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.
"A Florida man’s social media posts that threatened violence against African-Americans, Jews and homosexuals and that urged his followers to start a race war netted him a $1 million bond," the Miami Herald reported Saturday. "And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."
