Stormy Daniels’ Attorney Wishes to Depose President Trump

I did not have sexual relations with that woman!

CBS reports that Stormy Daniels’ attorney has asked for permission this morning to depose the president about his knowledge of paying the porn star $130,000 a week and a half before the 2016 election. Michael J. Avenatti, the lawyer, requested a deposition of no more than two hours.

The attorney also wants to depose the president’s personal attorney, Michael D. Cohen, who made the payment to Stormy Daniels without the president knowing and with his own funds. If this is successful, president Trump would have to explain what he knew about the agreement and when. This could detrmine if laws were broken by Mr. Cohen, President Trump, or the Trump Campaign.

David Schwartz, an attorney who serves as a spokesperson for Michael Cohen, said that he’s sure that Avenatti wants to depose the president but that his case is illogical.

In a statement provided to CBS News Wednesday morning, Schwartz called the motion “a reckless use of the legal system in order to continue to inflate Michael Avenatti’s  deflated ego and keep himself relevant. His statements are ludicrous when he asks where Michael Cohen and Donald Trump are? He knows they are following the rules of the court. They are handling the case in a court of competent jurisdiction, and as a lawyer, he needs to do the same. This is politically motivated and people see through this charade.”

According to a motion filed this morning, Daniels’ team has scheduled a court hearing on April 30th at 10 a.m. Avenatti is requesting that depositions be conducted within 21 days of the judge’s ruling and that a jury trial start within 90 days.

Stormy Daniels’ real name is Stephanie Clifford. She has been writing, directing, and acting in adult films for nearly 20 years. According to Daniels, she had sex with Donald Trump in 2006 and stayed in touch with him for about a year. President Trump denies having a sexual relationship with this woman.
