During an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Stormy Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, hammered President Trump's fixer Michael Cohen, and his lawyer Brent Blakely for putting out "false statements."
In response to Avenatti claiming that there are more tapes, Blakely released a statement that said: “Neither myself or Mr. Cohen has provided any information to Mr. Avenatti, are in any way cooperating with Mr. Avenatti, or have any interest whatsoever in cooperating with Mr. Avenatti to the detriment of President Donald Trump. Mr. Cohen’s legal matters will not be tried in the court of public opinion, but in a court of law.”
When asked by Blitzer what he thought of Blakely's response, Avenatti joked that he must be taking communication lessons from President Donald Trump.
"Maybe he took honesty 101 at Trump University, I can't tell you why he is issuing false statements," Avenatti said.
"What's false about it?" Wolf asked.
"Well, what's false about that statement and subsequent communications is that it suggests we haven't had communications. I haven't had communications with Michael Cohen. And that there's been no exchange of thoughts or attempts to cooperate. I mean, and that's just not true," Avenatti said.
He continued: "I mean, the meeting that took place, and I'm not going to get into the details of specifically what was said. But it is not as Brent Blakely has made it out to be. And, in fact, I just sent out a tweet moments ago, showing some screen shots of a text exchange that I had with Brent Blakely in the days after the restaurant meeting, showing that we were trying to set up an in-person meeting between Brent Blakely, myself, Michael Cohen and others."
