Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti is hinting that the $1.6 million hush payment to a Playboy model could’ve actually been for Donald Trump – not a Republican donor, as was originally reported.
On Thursday morning, Michael Avenatti appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. And he dropped what could end up being a major bombshell.
“So, Mika, you are familiar with the fact that a week ago, Judge (Kimba) Wood ordered Michael Cohen’s attorneys to disclose all of his clients for the last three years,” Avenatti said, “and there were three clients listed — three clients listed. Do you recall which three?”
Mika Brzezinski then listed off Donald Trump, Sean Hannity, and GOP donor Elliott Broidy. But Avenatti said that Mika was making the same mistake most people were making.
“No, no, no,” he said. “Mr. Trump, the Trump organization and Sean Hannity. Mr. Broidy was not disclosed in open court as one of Michael Cohen’s clients.”
When co-host Joe Scarborough asked the lawyer what he meant, Avenatti said,
“I think at some point we are going to find out, if in fact, the client in connection with the ($1.6 million) settlement was, in fact, Mr. Broidy. I’m going to leave it at that.”
Avenatti wouldn’t elaborate but it seems clear that he is implying that the payment could’ve been made for Trump, or even Hannity.
Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen made a hush money payment of $1.6 million to a Playboy model who became pregnant during an affair and who later had an abortion. It was previously reported that Broidy was the man who had the affair. But Avenatti says that Broidy was ruled out by Cohen’s lawyers in open court.
That means the only two choices left are Trump and Hannity.
Buckle up kids. Things are getting crazy…..well, crazier.
