Judge Denies Michael Cohen’s Request For Gag Order on Michael Avenatti

A Federal judge in California has denied a request filed by Michael Cohen — President Donald Trump‘s lawyer — for a gag order to be placed on Avenatti, the attorney for Stormy Daniels.

Avenatti, naturally, took a victory lap on Twitter.
