Michael Avenatti, the left-wing attorney best known for representing porn star Stormy Daniels, announced Friday that he and Daniels would attend the congressional hearing in which President Trump’s disgraced former attorney Michael Cohen is set to testify.
“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 tweeted.
Avenatti said it was “appropriate” for him to attend with Daniels because he claimed the Cohen testimony would not have happened without her.
Cohen claimed he paid Daniels $130,000 with his personal money in 2016, setting off a wave of speculation over whether he paid the adult film star to keep her mouth shut about her interactions with Trump.
