Porn star Stormy Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, claimed he has more evidence to incriminate President Donald Trump and lawyer Michael Cohen, but would not reveal any details during his Monday appearance on CNN’s “New Day.”

He called Cohen a liar and demanded Trump and his lawyer come clean to the American people.

“Michael Cohen needs to stop hiding behind pieces of paper and come clean with the American public. He lied about the $130,000,” Avenatti said. “He wants the American people to believe that Donald Trump knew nothing of this agreement. That he advanced $130,000. It’s laughable. It’s not believable. It’s time for this guy to come on camera and sit down with you or others and answer some hard questions.”

Host Alisyn Camerota asked Avenatti about his suggestion that this was just the beginning.  He repeated his ultimatum.


“I haven’t suggested it. I meant it. It is just the beginning,” he said. “We have a whole host of evidence. This is not going away. And Mr. Cohen and the president better come clean with the American people and they better do it quickly.”

When pressed to reveal his evidence, Avenatti backed down and said he would not be releasing any information or details at this time.

“Again, I’m not going to get into the details of the evidence,” Avenatti replied. “We’re in early stages of this. But suffice it to say, we are only getting started.”

He promised to reveal any valuable information “over the next few weeks and months.”

“We’re going to prove that Mr. Cohen’s statements to the American people are false,” he concluded. “That at all times Mr. Trump knew about this, knew about the $130,000, was fully aware of it. And with the assistance of Mr. Cohen sought to intimidate and put my client under his thumb.”
