Attorney Michael Avenatti took to Twitter Tuesday morning to put to bed at least one rumor that had followed his client Stormy Daniels in her legal fight with President Donald Trump.
“To address the rumor: We DO NOT have a ‘Monica Lewinsky type’ dress. Thus, there is no dress to be tested for DNA,” he said. “But we are making progress on the assault/stalking that occurred around the same time that Mr. Cohen threatened @intouchweekly magazine in May 2011. #coverup #basta.”
For anyone under 30, the “Monica Lewinsky type” dress refers to a blue dress owned by the former White House intern which contained stains of President Bill Clinton’s semen after she performed oral sex on him.

Rumors of a Monica-type dress that may contain Trump’s DNA briefly took over the Internet in February after TheBlast published that Daniels’ was in possession of it. The article cited “sources close to Daniels” who added that it was a “shimmering gold mini dress with a plunging neckline.”
But, according to Avenatti, it was fake news.
Though there is no dress, Avenatti continues to tease the possibility that Daniels may have incriminating photos of President Trump in her possession.

Though Stormy Daniels’ ultra-hyped interview on “60 Minutes” is now in the rearview mirror, Avenatti has shown no interest in retreating from television. On Monday he stormed both morning shows and prime time.
On CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Avenatti sparred in a nasty exchange with David Schwartz, a lawyer representing Michael Cohen.
“Let’s talk about Michael Cohen. What kind of man this is?” said Avenatti. “The guy doesn’t even know the law. He’s a thug. Your friend is a thug. A thug. Thug. Thug. Thug. Thug.”
