Michael Avenatti issued a cryptic tweet on Thursday night in which he shared a photo of a DVD and wrote, “If ‘a picture is worth a thousand words,’ how many words is this worth?????”
On Friday, Avenatti told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that the DVD contained evidence of Daniels’ alleged affair with Trump back in 2006, when Trump was married to his current wife Melania.
Daniels’ highly anticipated interview with CBS’ 60 minutes is set to air at 7 p.m. ET Sunday.
Avenatti refused to reveal the DVD’s contents or discuss whether he would release it, but challenged Trump and Cohen to deny Daniels’ account.
“We want people to start telling the truth as it relates to my client and what she’s been put through and what happened,” he said. “We want the American people to have all of the facts to the extent the president or Michael Cohen have a separate set of facts or a separate narrative, let them come forward and tell the American people that.”
Blitzer concluded the interview by asking Avenatti why anyone should believe him about what’s in the DVD when he refuses to discuss its contents.
“Well, if people think I’m bluffing, they should ask the opponents in countless cases I’ve had over the last 15 years if I’m generally a guy that bluffs,” Avenatti said.
Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, filed a lawsuit against Trump earlier this month seeking to invalidate a non-disclosure agreement about the alleged affair.
She has argued in court documents that the agreement is legally invalid because it was signed by her and Cohen, but not by Trump.
