On Thursday, Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that President Donald Trump downfall will be his need for ultimate loyalty.
It was revealed that David Pecker, publisher of National Enquirer, has more hidden stories about Trump than what was originally reported.
“The relationship that existed between David Pecker and Donald Trump was for over a decade,” Avenatti said. “What’s amazing to me frankly, is that this is another example of someone close to Trump that didn’t trust him.”
He added, “You have Michael Cohen who was at the right hand of Donald Trump for the better part of 10 to 12 years, felt it necessary to tape their conversations, maintain evidence against Donald Trump in the event it was needed. Now we find out that it appears David Pecker did the same thing at the same time, and he was supposedly friends with Donald Trump.”
“He knew better than to trust him entirely. In fact, it appears he knew he could not trust him and that’s why he maintained this information,” he said. “This standard will ultimately be the downfall of Donald Trump. Trump demands 100 percent loyalty from everyone around him but gives loyalty to no one. ultimately it is going to come back and bite him.”

CNN conservative zaps every Trump supporters’ argument against impeachment
Republican-turned-Independent David Gergen served in four presidential administrations, two of which were impeached. When he heard one of President Donald Trump's shills on CNN Wednesday evening, he was quick to flatten the argument.
Scott Jennings argued that what Democrats were doing was unprecedented, but CNN commentator Kirsten Powers said that former President Bill Clinton was nearly thrown out of office for lying about an affair, something she argued was far less important than extorting a foreign power to sway a presidential election.
Seth Meyers flattens Trump’s latest impeachment defense tactic — ‘slurring like a lunatic’ during rallies
Late-night comedian Seth Meyers observed that most people who were inches from being fired from their job would try and prove that they should remain. President Donald Trump, however, has taken a different path, "slurring like a lunatic while throwing in some of his trademark sexism."
Meyers played a clip of Trump's rally where he went after everything from admitting he demanded the Ukraine president say what he asked and an allegation that there'd be windmills all over the country under Hillary Clinton. Trump previously alleged that wind energy is dangerous because the windmills cause ear cancer. After an attack on Beto O'Rourke, Trump turned to Elizabeth Warren, who he said, "opened her fresh mouth."
Rachel Maddow wonders if Putin told Trump Seoul was nowhere near North Korea to mess with him
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow was flabbergasted by the recent revelation that Trump thought he could displace an entire South Korean city so that the 2,000 year-old capital would be safer. To make matters worse, President Donald Trump asked Russian President Vladimir Putin what he wanted the U.S. leader to do with North Korea.
The host compared the move to what it would be like to move the entirety of New York City, which has a smaller population than Seoul.
