We’re all used to lawyers acting confident. Johnny Cochran, who successfully defended O.J. Simpson on murder charges, famously strutted into the courtroom as if the trial itself was merely a formality.
But it isn’t every day that a lawyer treats going to work like a holiday. It must feel like that when you’re taking President Trump to court.
In today’s clip, Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti tells CNN’s Anderson Cooper that his case against The Donald is so strong, it feels like “Christmas and Hanukkah all rolled into one.” Avenatti contends that as many as six new women are coming forward with allegations against the President, and that his more-famous client will win her right to speak out.
To Coop’s credit, he remains poker-faced throughout the interview. Listen at 1:00 for the coup de grace as Avenatti asks the million-dollar question about Trump’s next fall guy.
“This is like Christmas and Hanukkah all rolled into one…perhaps the greatest gift that I’ve ever received.” – Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti is “ecstatic” at prospect of legal “street fight” w/ Trump and attorneys: “We’re gonna bring it” https://t.co/StRzp28Wqj pic.twitter.com/ID2hilwpjc
