Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti is not going to spare any moment to hit President Donald Trump hard where it hits him most.
This time he has suggested that Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, may have received money for the infamous hush money payoff of Stormy Daniels from a firm by a Russian oligarch and linked to Vladimir Putin.
Avenatti suggested that Cohen may have been reimbursed for his $130,000 payout to Daniels with these Russian funds.
Trump had denied the payment but when his new lawyer, former mayor Rudy Giuliani, went on Fox News and confessed that Trump had reimbursed Cohen for the hush money payment to Daniels.
Also, Avenatti has not rule out the possibility that payments were made to silence other women. The account under Essential Consultants, LLC used by Cohen for the payment has been recently released by Avenatti.
Avenatti’s report states, “Mr. Cohen inexplicably accepted these payments while he was the personal attorney to the President and holding himself out at times as employed by the Trump Organization (with few other clients).”
It continues, “This was occurring at the same time significant questions were being raised relating to (a) the involvement of Russia and Vladimir Putin in the 2016 Presidential Election and (b) the extent of the relationship between Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump.”
