Stormy Daniel’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he is one step closer to asking President Donald Trump questions under oath.
On Tuesday, former Trump staffers, Micahel Cohen and Pual Manafort pleaded guilty in crimes connected to bank and tax fraud.
“I’m going to have an opportunity to ask Michael Cohen and Donald Trump questions under oath,” Avenatti said. “You know, it’s one thing to lie to members of the press, but it’s an entirely different thing to lie under oath.”
He added, “I’m going to get a chance to asks some very difficult questions of Michael Cohen and Donald Trump, about what they knew when they knew it, what they did about it, and what they did to cover it up.”
He noted that telling the truth could prove to be difficult for President Trump.
“This president is a habitual liar, and he wouldn’t know the truth if it fell off a building and hit him in the head,” Avenatti said.

‘The worst day of the presidency so far for Donald Trump’: Advisor to four presidents
President Donald Trump has not had a worse day in office than he suffered on Friday, according to a top former White House advisor.
David Gergen served in the administrations of Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. He was interviewed Friday night by CNN's Anderson Cooper.
"If you are looking to throw somebody under the bus, Gordon Sondland would probably be a prime candidate to be next in line to be thrown under the bus," Cooper said.
"I think the president will wait patiently to see what he says and then decide," Gergen replied.
He then offered his analysis of the situation.
Chris Hayes breaks down the ‘busy day in the criminal chronicles of one President Donald J. Trump’
MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes connected the dots between all of the bombshell news that was reported Friday in the impeachment hearings into President Donald Trump.
"Good God, today has been ten days and this week has been ten weeks," Hayes said. "And there are a million things happening at once."
"Just in the past couple of hours, for instance, we just got this incredibly incriminating and damning behind closed doors testimony from a U.S. foreign service officer that was still supposed to be kind of like the B-story today, the sideshow," he explained. "It's a guy who works in the U.S. embassy in Ukraine, a guy named David Holmes. He testified behind closed doors that he could hear president Trump talking on the phone to the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union who was an inaugural donor, and they were in a restaurant in Kiev and the president was shouting so loudly on the phone that [Gordon] Sondland had to hold the phone away from his ear because it was hurting his eardrum, so then everyone could hear."
Trump ignored aides’ advice before first Ukraine call — and it destroyed his impeachment defense: report
President Donald Trump has repeatedly referred to himself as his own top advisor and a political "genius." But his interactions with Ukraine at the heart of the impeachment inquiry could demonstrate the limitations of such an approach to governing.
Friday's bombshell, behind-closed-door testimony from David Holmes has made White House aides unhappy, but the bad news for the administration did not stop there.
