Michael Avenatti, Stormy Daniels’s attorney, had an ominous warning for Michael Cohen’s associates.
“Anyone that had any contact with this man in the last 20 years should be very concerned about what secrets of theirs are within these documents,” he said.
His comments came at the end of a consequential day in court.
Porn star Stormy Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, gave an ominous warning Monday to associates of President Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen as he stood outside a federal courthouse in Manhattan.
Following a wild day of proceedings as part of a criminal investigation into Cohen — including the revelation that Fox News host Sean Hannity had been a client of Cohen’s — Avenatti said none of the lawyer’s associates are safe.
“I said last Friday and this weekend that Michael Cohen was radioactive, and that anybody that was associated with him in the last 20 or 30 years should be very, very concerned,” Avenatti told reporters at an impromptu press conference following the day’s proceedings. “What we witnessed earlier in the hearing with the disclosure related to Sean Hannity proved my point exactly. He is radioactive.”
“Anyone that had any contact with this man in the last 20 years should be very concerned about what secrets of theirs are within these documents,” he said, referring to documents obtained by the FBI in a series of raids last week on Cohen’s home, office, and hotel room.
Daniels provided comment to reporters as well, saying Cohen as “for years” acted “like he is above the law” and has “openly referred to himself as Mr. Trump’s fixer.”
“He has played by a different set of rules or should we say no rules at all,” she said. “He has never thought that the little man, or especially women or even more women like me, matter. That ends now.”
