Trump Paid Hush Money to 3 More Women, 1 Pregnant, Says Avenatti

Cops reportedly planned Stormy Daniels' strip club arrest

Avenatti has called the request for a gag order "a complete joke and baseless".

US District Judge S James Otero heard arguments in the case but made no immediate ruling, and gave no indication of when he might announce his decision.

Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti said the emails provided more evidence that the arrest was politically motivated.

Cohen's lawyer, requesting the order, accused Avenatti of being a "carnival magician".

"The Constitution is the highest right in the land, and is neither a trick or an illusion", Otero said.

Daniels was at the Sirens Columbus on July 12 as part of a tour she started since her alleged affair with President Trump and subsequent payout of hush money became public. Trump denies the affair.

Asked about whether the SDNY investigation of Cohen concerns the payment to his client, Avenatti said he believes the hush money is not the focus.

"Alan, you really need to start talking only about things that you know about, as opposed to things that you have no knowledge about", Avenatti argued. "No more lies or lip service", Avenatti tweeted early Friday morning.

He also pointed out that Cohen has taped client conversations, which also should apply as a breach of code of professional conduct.

And Chelsea are close to letting the pair move to the Santiago Bernabeu, according to the Daily Mail . As always, until it's actually an officially done deal, take the rumors with a grain of salt.

Otero responded, "The irony of all this does not escape me".

He also entertained nearly no oral argument on the other key issue of the hearing - whether to extend the stay on the case for another 90 days - as Cohen requested - or to allow it to move forward, at least in part, as Avenatti has asked. "They have absolutely no merit".

Mr Avenatti said: "They should release the information to the American people now".

Michael Avenatti, lawyer for adult-film actress Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, speaks to the media outside the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, in Los Angeles, California, U.S. July 27, 2018.

"I think there's a reason why the press and the media continue to invite us to come on television and talk about this case", Avenatti said, according to ABC. "And that is because there is significant interest and there should be".

A federal judge says he is unlikely to issue a gag order stopping a lawyer for porn actress Stormy Daniels from discussing her lawsuit against President Donald Trump with reporters and the public.

Cohen initially said he used his own money to pay Daniels and was not reimbursed by Trump.

One of the women in question claims that she was pregnant at the time of the payments, according to Avenatti. "You need to go back - let me finish", Avenatti said as Dershowitz tried to cut in and Cooper advised, "Let him finish".
