Trump Being Investigated for Pulling 'Con Job After Con Job' on Americans, Stormy Daniels's Lawyer Claims

Adult film star Stormy Daniels's lawyer Michael Avenatti ridiculed President Donald Trump's tweet Monday morning in which he claimed that a police sketch of a man, whom she claims threatened her not to discuss an alleged affair, is a "con job."

Trump tweeted that the sketch, which Daniels and Avenatti released on Tuesday, was "about a nonexistent man" and "a total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools." The president quote tweeted a Trump supporter's tweet suggesting the sketch was a former boyfriend of Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford.

A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!

Daniels has alleged that a man threatened her while she was with her young daughter in 2011 in a Las Vegas parking lot when she considered revealing an affair with Trump she alleged took place five years earlier. In a 60 Minutes interview, Daniels said verbal threats moved her to sign a nondisclosure agreement that saw Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pay her $130,000, but that she now argues is invalid because it did not contain Trump's signature.

Minutes after Trump's tweet Wednesday, Avenatti suggested on the social media platform that the president could be under investigation by the FBI for past con jobs.

"FBI search warrants uncovering EXISTING documents and recordings showing con job after con job pulled on REAL people and very REAL American citizens (who didn't know it)," Avenatti tweeted. "Welcome to the playing field. #whereyoubeen #basta."

Avenatti also highlighted the fact that Trump's tweet was his first direct response to Daniels's allegations, and mocked the move as "shooting himself in the foot."

"In my experience, there is nothing better in litigation than having a completely unhinged, undisciplined opponent who is prone to shooting himself in the foot," Avenatti tweeted. "Always leads to BIGLY problems…like new claims (i.e. defamation). LOL. #xmas #hanukkah #basta."

Daniels and Avenatti presented the sketch a day after Cohen went to court over a raid the FBI made on his office, home and hotel room, reportedly in search of records related to payments to Daniels and another woman who claimed to have had an affair with Trump.
