Stormy Daniels Lawyer Michael Avenatti Says She ‘Would Consider’ Settlement With Trump

Michael Avenatti, the outspoken lawyer of Stormy Daniels, appeared on CBS This Morning and said his client would consider a settlement in her suit against President Donald Trump.

Daniels is suing the president and his lawyer Michael Cohen to nullify a nondisclosure agreement she signed in exchange for $130,000 to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Trump.

“If they came to you with a settlement in this case, would you accept it?” This Morning host Anthony Mason asked Avenatti.

“I think we would consider it, I would converse with my client. It would depend on the terms of a settlement,” Daniels’ lawyer replied. “But at this point, I don’t see how the case gets resolved short of the truth coming out.”

Avenatti’s appearance on CBS comes after he filed a motion late Tuesday night to depose President Trump and Cohen.

Avenatti also pushed back on whether he has political motivations to embarrass the president.

“My client wants the American people to know the truth,” he said.
