Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Tweets Cryptic Image of Mystery Disc to Hype Her ’60 Minutes’ Interview

Michael Avenatti has turned teasing his client’s upcoming interview into a small art form

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for the adult film star Stormy Daniels, teased more evidence that his client was sitting a secret, undisclosed bombshell regarding the sexual relationship the actress says she had with Donald Trump.

“If ‘a picture is worth a thousand words,’ how many words is this worth?” he said while sharing a cryptic image of a compact disc.

Avenatti did not immediately respond to request for clarification from TheWrap.

It’s not the first time Avenatti has used Twitter to tease the public about what his client may or may not have on the president. Earlier this week, he tweeted an image of Daniels from a polygraph test from 2011.

A readout of the results obtained by NBC News indicates Daniels was being honest when she said she had an unprotected sex with Trump in 2006.

Since the Wall Street Journal first revealed that Trump attorney Michael Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her signing an NDA, the story had continued to metastasize. In recent weeks, Daniels and her attorney have become more assertive about her right to share what she says is the story of their affair, and has argued that the NDA is void because Trump did not sign it.

The White House has consistently denied that any affair with Daniels (whose real name is Stephanie Clifford) took place.

In advance of Daniels’ interview on “60 Minutes” Sunday, Avenatti has made the rounds on television teasing journalists with salacious nuggets of what might come.

On “Morning Joe” last week, Avenatti set off a new round of furious speculation after saying that his client has been physically threatened over the story by someone from Team Trump. He refused to elaborate on-air and said they would have to watch her full interview on “60 Minutes.”

The interview will air on “60 Minutes” this Sunday, March 25.
