Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Drops Hint About Mystery ‘Thug’ Who Made Vegas Threat

”Expect a major announcement in the coming days regarding our efforts to identify the thug who threatened Ms. Clifford in Las Vegas,“ says Michael Avenatti

Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing porn star Stormy Daniels, teased a major new reveal on Saturday, tweeting out that there would be new developments on the person who his client says threatened her in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011.

“Expect a major announcement in the coming days regarding our efforts to identify the thug who threatened Ms. Clifford in Las Vegas in 2011 to ‘leave Trump alone’ while making reference to her little girl,” said Avenatti, referencing Daniels’ real name Stephanie Clifford.

In her much-anticipated March 25 interview on “60 Minutes,” Daniels said that she had been threatened by a man who warned her about going public with an affair she says she had with Donald Trump in 2006.

“I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter. T– taking, you know, the seats facing backwards in the backseat, diaper bag, you know, gettin’ all the stuff out. And a guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,'” Daniels told Anderson Cooper.

“And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone.”

Daniels told Cooper she didn’t know who the person was and did not report the incident to police, but added that she would be able to recognize him if she ever saw him again.

President Trump has consistently denied that any sexual affair between him and Daniels ever took place, though his lawyer, Michael Cohen did wire the porn star $130,000 just days before the 2016 election in exchange for her silence. Earlier this week, President Trump told reporters that the issue was Cohen’s, and he had not been aware of the arrangement.
