On Monday, CNN pitted Stormy Daniels’ attorney and Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s personal attorney in a segment that quickly devolved into a shouting match.
Michael Avenatti, representing Daniels, did not hold back when talking about Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, the lawyer who allegedly arranged for the $130,000 pre-election payoff to the adult film actress.
“He’s a thug!” Avenatti told Cohen’s attorney David Schwartz. “Your friend is a thug.”
Then he just kept saying it.
Schwartz, who sent a cease and desist letter to Stormy Daniels claiming that she was besmirching Cohen’s name, quickly replied, “That’s a million dollars!”
Schwartz was also testy when CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin asked him about the $130,000 payment Cohen insists he made out of his own pocket.
“There’s nothing illegal, Schwartz snapped. (That’s not what the FEC says.)
Toobin then reminded Schwartz he was the one who brought up the whole illegal thing.
