Stormy Daniels's Lawyer Michael Avenatti Claims 'a Lot of Women' Had Nondisclosure Agreements With Cohen

The number of women that President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen arranged nondisclosure agreement for will reach "double digits,” Stormy Daniels's lawyer Michael Avenatti predicted in light of an FBI raid on Cohen.

“I am confident that we’re not talking about two or three or five or seven different women, we’re going to get well into the double digits when it’s all said and done,” Avenatti said on MSNBC’s AM Joy Saturday. “And I’m confident that the documents that have been obtained by the FBI, in connection with these raids, are going to show a lot of women.”

The FBI raided Cohen’s office reportedly in search of records related to payments to porn star Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who both claim they had affairs with Trump.

A judge on Friday ordered Cohen’s attorneys to provide a list of his clients for consideration as to whether the documents seized during the raid should be protected under attorney-client privilege.

Avenatti on Saturday called Cohen “radioactive” and said that anybody who has had contact with him “should be very, very nervous.”

“According to his lawyers, we’re talking about documents that may span 30 years, that were obtained by the FBI in connection with these raids,” Avenatti said. “They describe the documents as thousands, if not millions, of pages of documents subject to the attorney-client privilege, including audio recordings.”

Cohen arranged a $1.6 million nondisclosure agreement on behalf of Republican National Committee deputy finance chairman Elliott Broidy over a “consensual relationship” with a Playboy model who became pregnant, The Wall Street Journal revealed on Friday. The prominent GOP fundraiser resigned following the report.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sued Trump to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement she signed shortly before the 2016 election for $130,000, on the grounds that Cohen signed it but Trump did not.
