Stormy Daniels, Avenatti to attend Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony
Michael Avenatti will attend the congressional testimony by President Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen along with porn actress and alleged Trump mistress Stormy Daniels.
Avenatti said on Twitter that Daniels was the original spark to Cohen’s legal troubles and the two will be in attendance when he appears before the House Oversight Committee next month.
“I am pleased to announce that @StormyDaniels and I will attend the congressional hearing when Cohen testifies. Which is only appropriate seeing as it would have never happened but for @StormyDaniels,” Avenatti wrote.
Daniels, who allegedly had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006, was paid $130,000 by Michael Cohen to keep quiet about the tryst.
Revelations about the payment preceded a criminal investigation that resulted in Cohen pleading guilty to campaign finance violations.
Cohen has been sentenced to three years in prison.
