Stormy Daniels Lawyer Fires Back at ‘Unhinged’ Trump Over Sketch Denials, Hints ‘New Claims’

Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti fired back at President Donald Trump over his claims that the sketch of the man who allegedly threatened the porn star is “a cob job.”

After Avenatti and Stormy debuted the sketch of the man — who she claims threatened her and daughter in a parking lot to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Trump — the president replied on Twitter.

“A sketch years later about a nonexistent man,” Trump wrote. “A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

Avenatti, himself no Twitter neophyte, fired back minutes later, referencing the FBI raid on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

“FBI search warrants uncovering EXISTING documents and recordings showing con job after con job pulled on REAL people and very REAL American citizens (who didn’t know it). Welcome to the playing field,” he wrote.

He added, “In my experience, there is nothing better in litigation than having a completely unhinged, undisciplined opponent who is prone to shooting himself in the foot.”

“Always leads to BIGLY problems…like new claims (i.e. defamation). LOL. #xmas #hanukkah #basta.”
