Anderson Cooper Presses Stormy’s Lawyer on Political Motivations: ‘You’re a Former Democratic Operative’

Stormy Daniels‘ lawyer Michael Avenatti was also on 60 Minutes tonight and Anderson Cooper briefly pressed him on his past political affiliations.

Cooper said Avenatti has suggested there are photos or text messages, but told him he could just be “bluffing.”

Avenatti told him, “You should ask some of the other people in my career when they’ve bet on me bluffing.”

Cooper brought up his past work for Democrats and said, “Some people looking at that will say you’re politically motivated.”

“You’re a former Democratic operative?” he asked.

“I haven’t done anything in politics,” Avenatti said, “in over 20 years.”

When Cooper told him that what he’s doing may sound political, Avenatti responded, “No, it sounds righteous… My client is credible, she’s telling the truth.”
