Former Stormy Daniels Attorney Michael Avenatti Says Trump’s Team Will ‘Destroy’ Michael Cohen and Manhattan D.A. Case


Last week, former Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti took to Twitter to explain the challenging circumstances under which Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) attempted to bring a case against the 45th president. Avenatti, who has distinct insight into the case given Daniels was his client, said that Trump’s legal team will ‘destroy’ the prosecution.

“Atty Joe Tacopina is no Rudy Giuliani/Sydney Powell. The guy knows his way around a criminal courtroom,” he wrote about Trump lawyer Joe Tacopina who has been making the rounds on national media to explain the case. “He will destroy Michael ‘Dumb as a Box of Rocks’ Cohen on the stand, esp. seeing as Cohen publicly lied for 15 mos. and now won’t stop talking on TV.”

“There are many critical facts and pieces of evidence (texts, emails, etc.) relating to the hush money scandal that have yet to see the light of day,” he explained. “And they will unfortunately be very damaging to the prosecution if Trump stands trial. At this point, you simply can’t build a case on the testimony of Cohen & Daniels.”

Bragg is attempting to charge Trump with an illegal election contribution via a $130,000 payment paid to Stormy Daniels based on the word of the disgraced lawyer, and convicted liar, Michael Cohen. Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, pleaded guilty in 2018 to federal charges including five counts of tax invasion, one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporate contribution, and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution at the request of a candidate. In addition, Cohen was charged with lying to Congress.

Harvard legal scholar Alan Dershowitz made similar comments last week arguing that the case against Trump represented ‘targeted injustice’ against the 2024 Republican presidential front-runner.

“When I was coming of age in the 1950s Southern prosecutors would target civil rights workers and search for any possible violation of the law, no matter how technical,” Dershowitz wrote in his newsletter. “If they discovered or invented a violation, they would indict, prosecute, convict, and sentence the target…That, precisely, is what we are now seeing with the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, targeting the former president and current candidate, Donald Trump.”
