Michael Avenatti, attorney for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, claimed again on Friday that there were more “Trump tapes” to come. Citing his own press conference from late May, Avenatti repeated his call for the release of any additional tapes.

“Here is what I said less than two months ago. I demanded the release of what I called the #TrumpTapes then, and I am demanding the release of them again now,” Avenatti tweeted Friday.

Avenatti was responding to reports that Cohen had secretly taped a conversation with Trump just two months prior to the 2016 election. During that taped conversation, Trump and his then attorney had reportedly discussed the possibility of paying off Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model who alleges an affair with Trump in 2006.

The frequent Trump critic added a challenge to Cohen, saying that if he is a true patriot, he will not hesitate to produce any additional tapes he may have made.

“And there is a reason why I used the term that I did and demanded the release of the #TrumpTapes as opposed to the #TrumpTape,” he tweeted. “If Michael Cohen is a patriot, then ALL of the tapes should be released to the American people. Now. Too much is at stake.”
