Michael Avenatti to Critics: Accept the ‘Huge Amount of Success That We’ve Had’ in Stormy Daniels Case

Stormy Daniels’s lawyer Michael Avenatti on Tuesday morning responded to a report that he has “carved a Trumpian path” that may put his ability to represent his client in jeopardy by saying that critics are simply having a tough time stomaching the “huge amount of success” he’s had. “Any suggestion that this may put Stormy Daniels at risk is absurd and without merit,” Avenatti said in a phone call to Newsweek. As Avenatti has earned a regular spotlight on television news bashing both Trump and his lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen, he’s also drawn comparisons to Trump.
