Stormy Daniels Lawyer to Appear on Fox News Tonight After Complaining Network Hadn’t Booked Him

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer of porn star Stormy Daniels, is set to appear on Fox News @ Night Tuesday for an interview with Shannon Bream, a Fox News spokesperson told Mediaite.

The interview comes after Avenatti said during an appearance on Ari Melber’s MSNBC show that he had not received a single interview request from Fox News.

“Well, Ari, I’ve been invited to give interviews to literally hundreds of media outlets around the world, what is shocking to me is, I haven’t received a single request, not one, from Fox News,” Avenatti said.

“They’ve reached out to me for copies of documents and things of that nature, and we’ve cooperated with them. But I’ve not received a single interview request from Fox News.”

Well, now it looks like Bream’s recently debuted 11 p.m. show is the first to book Avenatti to talk about his bombshell legal battle with the president.

Avenatti’s client, real name Stephanie Clifford, is suing Donald Trump over a nondisclosure agreement she signed weeks before the 2016 election to keep quiet about an alleged affair with the president. Clifford and Avenatti claim the NDA is invalid because Trump never signed it.

The affair allegedly went down in 2006, when Trump was married to his third wife Melania, who had just given birth to his youngest son Barron.

On Tuesday, it was reported that Clifford took a lie detector test over the affair, and her examiner determined she was telling the truth about having unprotected sex with Trump in 2006.

Meanwhile, Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen are suing Clifford for $20 million, for allegedly violating the NDA twenty times. They’ll be able to add a few more to that tally after Stormy’s 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper airs this Sunday.
