WASHINGTON: Michael Avenatti wants to be clear: He does not bluff. A year ago, the attorney was in the closing days of a jury trial, facing off against a company he had accused of making faulty surgical gowns. A take-no-prisoners litigator armed with sharp suits and a seemingly endless supply of trash talk, Avenatti is now using his signature mix of force and flash to go after President Donald Trump on behalf of porn actress Stormy Daniels.Daniels made her case in a widely viewed interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" that aired Sunday, saying that she had sex with the married Trump once in 2006 and that a man threatened her with physical harm in 2011 if she went public with her story.Trump lawyer Michael Cohen paid her $130,000 days before the 2016 presidential election as part of a nondisclosure agreement she is seeking to invalidate.Avenatti said on NBC that there was "no question" Trump knew about the agreement. Those who know Avenatti are not surprised to see him take on this fight.Avenatti denies that the Daniels case has anything to do with politics and says he even supports some things Trump has done as president, including deregulation and tax cuts.
