Michael Avenatti revealed on Wednesday that his client Stormy Daniels can describe Donald Trump’s private parts and did so for “60 Minutes,” but that the television show elected to keep those details from the American people.
“She can describe the President’s genitalia in great detail,” said Avenatti on the set of “Megyn Kelly Today” Wednesday. “’60 Minutes’ and CBS, you know, they are a conservative network. I mean, there is a lot of information that was said during that interview that didn’t make it into the final ’60 Minutes.’”
The moment elicited gasps and groans from the set of the daytime television show, with Kelly herself seemingly taken aback.
“I didn’t need to hear that. My eyes,” she said. “I didn’t need to hear that.”
The interview went on to offer Daniels’ attorney one of the toughest grillings he’s received on television to date.
Kelly repeatedly accused Stormy Daniels of sitting on her revelations before the election because she wanted money.
“Eleven days before the election she had information about the possible next president having an extra-marital affair with an adult film actress and she shut up about it in exchange for just over a hundred grand,’ said Kelly. “She wanted the money!”
Though he has floated the idea of a settlement in the past, Avenatti said that today his client is motivated strictly out of principle — eliciting laughter from Kelly’s audience.
The Daniels’ story has faded in recent days after the adult film star’s interview with Anderson Cooper for “60 Minutes” drew 22 million viewers. Daniels says she had an affair with Donald Trump back in 2006 — something the president has consistently denied. Just days before the election, however, Daniels accepted a $130,000 check from Trump attorney Michael Cohen in exchange for signing an non-disclosure agreement about the alleged affair.
