Stormy Daniels Lawyer Goes Off on Trump and Legal Team: ‘Why Are They Hiding!?’


T-minus 79 hours until America finally gets to hear from Stormy Daniels on 60 Minutes. Undoubtedly, many cable news viewers are hoping that time will also mark the last they hear from her attorney, Michael Avennati.

Thursday on New Day, Avenatti made his umpteen-zillionth cable news appearance over the past several weeks. Speaking with Chris Cuomo, the omnipresent barrister wanted to know: Where is Michael Cohen — his counterpart in the legal battle over the Stormy Daniels NDA?

And where is president Donald Trump?

This is like a bad movie set. Everybody has a stunt double on the other side of this thing. You’ve got the president who’s nowhere to be found. He’s relying on his stunt double, Michael Cohen. You got Michael Cohen, he’s now nowhere to be found. He’s relying on his stunt double, Mr. [Arthur] Schwartz [Cohen’s attorney]. Next thing you know, you’re gonna have Mr. Schwartz, he’s gonna have a stunt double. At some point, are the guys going to come out of the trailer and appear in person and answer questions? I mean, why are they hiding!? Where are all these guys?

Avenatti also questioned why Trump hasn’t Tweeted about matters pertaining to the Stormy Daniels case.

“He’s nowhere to be found,” the lawyer said. “Why is the president able to Tweet about Russia? This morning he threatens Joe Biden. The list goes on and on. What is he hiding from?!”
