Adult film star Stormy Daniels is suing her former lawyer, Keith M. Davidson, for violating attorney-client privileges, reported the New York Times.
The suit, filed in California State Court claims that Davidson worked with Micahel Cohen, President Donald Trump's lawyer in an attempt to squash Daniels' case. A report shows that text messages were sent between the two parties.
Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti said that Cohen's acts were "desperate."
In an interview with MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace, Avenatti said: "If you look at these text messages, especially the exchange relating to Sean Hannity's show, you [will] see an absolute desperation on Michael Cohen's part to try to get my client go with Sean Hannity on the 17th of January."
He continued: If anybody believes that Michael Cohen is putting or attempting to put my client on Sean Hannity without the president's knowledge, I have a bridge or perhaps other things to sell them because that just didn't happen. If anybody thinks that Michael Cohen is meeting with the first lady to talk about stormy Daniels without the president's knowledge, same answer. I have a bridge to sell them. This is clear -- it is clear from the text messages that the prior denials by Michael Cohen and the president and what the American people have been told is a bunch of nonsense."
