Stormy Daniels' attorney reveals major piece of evidence on 'The Late Show'

Stormy Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti visited The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and  revealed a major piece of evidence in his clients claim against President Trump. Avenatti has been on television quite a bit lately, but this is his biggest reveal yet.

Avenatti brought with him a copy of the receipt for the non-disclosure agreement with Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen. Avenatti explained,  "This is the $130,000 receipt, coming from the entity, Essential Consultants, which is the entity that Michael Cohen created, and fabricated for the purposes of this payment."

Avenatti also pointed out that the check was sent from First Republic Bank's San Francisco branch. This is important because that bank is under the jurisdiction of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who is not a fan of Trump.

Avenatti explained, "This document may fact give him jurisdiction over certain criminal acts associated with this payment. In fact if the attorney general of the state of California were to bring charges, President Trump could not pardon Michael Cohen for those charges."

And while it may not seem normal for an attorney to reveal a key piece of evidence on a late night talk show, that's because it isn't. Avenatti said, "This is not your normal case, and it's not your normal defendant. I mean you're dealing with a defendant that's very undisciplined, can be easily baited into making mistakes, and I think we've been very, very successful in doing just that. And we're going to keep doing what we're doing."

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 on CBS.
