Trump may have to acknowledge Stormy Daniels payments

Avenatti represents Daniels in a lawsuit against Trump, Cohen and a company Cohen set up to pay Daniels $130,000 in hush money ahead of the 2016 presidential elections.

Avenatti said that "more than 99 percent of the payments to Mr. Cohen listed in the report were proven accurate either by other reporting or by the entities themselves that made the payments", in his filing in Manhattan federal court.

Avenatti also went on the attack in his filing, saying that Cohen's objection to his pro hac vice application is nothing "but a highly improper attempt to soil Mr. Avenatti and unnecessarily lure and entangle this Court into Mr. Cohen's elaborate campaign to now discredit Mr. Avenatti".

Novartis, a Swiss pharmaceutical company, said in a statement that they had entered into a year-long deal with Cohen "shortly after the election of President Trump, focused on US healthcare policy matters".

Avenatti said Cohen's belief that Avenatti broke the law by publishing Cohen's banking information is misguided.

Ms Daniels has also told United States media that she was threatened by a stranger in a auto park in 2011 to "leave Trump alone". "And it wasn't disclosed previous year, even though by all appearances it should have been", Adav Noti, senior director for the Campaign Legal Center, told the magazine.

While both Brinkley and Avenatti are single, it is likely they bonded over President Trump. But they said Avenatti also "appears to be in possession of some information from Mr. Cohen's actual bank records". At a federal court hearing in late April, Avenatti asked that Daniels be allowed to intervene out of concern that some of the materials seized from Cohen's office and residences could be pertinent to her defamation case. Ryan wrote that Avenatti "has no lawful basis to possess" the records, and that several of the transactions in Avenatti's document actually involved different Michael Cohens living in Israel and Canada.

Michael Avenatti said in court papers filed in federal court in NY that he had a First Amendment right to publish the information that was "of the utmost public concern". Brinkley previously claimed Trump had made advances on her when he was still married to first wife Ivana.

In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Avenatti said he was "on a search for the truth". "They need to get used to it".
