Michael Avenatti Slams Republican 'Pig' Who Called Stormy Daniels The 'Villain' In Trump Saga

Stormy Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, slammed Orange County Congressman Dana Rohrabacher for "degrading" comments made against Daniels Friday.

Rohrabacher, in speaking of Daniels' alleged affair with President Donald Trump, had called her the "villain" in the controversy.

"These comments are outrageous and false," said Avenatti of Rohrabacher's claims. "Who is this disgusting pig who knows nothing about the facts of our case?"

Avenatti continued to express his distaste on his Twitter account Saturday morning.

"Rep. Rohrabacher's derogatory comments yesterday about my client are a disgrace," the lawyer tweeted. "We must all do what we can to ensure that this pig is not re-elected to Congress this Fall and that @HarleyRouda takes his seat. #Basta"

Last week the President's lawyer, Michael Cohen, testified under oath that he made a $130,000 payment to Daniels to ensure details of an affair she says she had with Trump in 2006 did not emerge before the 2016 election. Cohen pled guilty to eight felonies in a plea deal arrangement.

Rohrabacher had attempted to lay the blame for a controversy at Daniels' door. "The guy who's mistakenly handling it so that every bit of the procedure isn't correct, he's not the villain," said Rohrabacher in an interview with Fox Business Network. "The villain is the person blackmailing him. Sometimes people make mistakes when they're a little bit desperate."

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is an adult film star. She is currently engaged in a legal battle with Trump entering on a non-disclosure agreement between the two over the alleged affair.

Cohen also allegedly paid $150,000 to another woman who has publicly said she had an affair with Trump, former Playboy model Karen McDougal. McDougal spoke with CNN about her alleged affair with Trump in March.

"Going through it, when I look back to where I was back then, I know it's wrong," she told CNN. "I'm really sorry for that. I know it's the wrong thing to do. But back in that day, I was a different girl. I had fun. I was in the Playboy scene. When I got with him, there was a real relationship there. There were real feelings between the two of us. Not just myself, not just him. There was a real relationship there."
