Avenatti: ‘No Question’ Trump Knew Michael Cohen Was Selling Access

‘They will literally do anything to divert attention from the facts and the truth’

AVENATTI: "Well, joy, there’s absolutely no evidence of that, and it’s strange credibility to even suggest it. This is a president that people that know him have routinely stated that he insists on knowing what’s going on around him. He absolutely despises people that are trying to make money on his back, quote, unquote, without his knowledge. In my view there’s no question that he knew what was going on here relating to Michael Cohen selling access, and I think when the evidence comes out — that not only did he know about it, but he participated in it. Let me just say this, this whole thing about Giuliani and draining the swamp, it’s an absolute joke. These guys have — that makes the everglades look like a backyard plastic pool. They’ll say and do anything at this point to distract the evidence that we continue to uncover, to distract away from the Mueller investigation that is picking up steam. I mean, they will literally do anything to divert attention from the facts and the truth."
