Himes: New Stormy Daniels Lawsuit Feels Like an Attempt to Free Her from the NDA
BLITZER: "Let me begin with the reaction from the lawsuit from stormy Daniels suing her former attorney for colluding with the president’s long time personal attorney Michael Cohen. Michael avenatti alleges he’s the current lawyer for stormy Daniels that this was done with President Trump’s knowledge. How much trouble potentially could this be for the president?"
HIMES: "Well, that is unclear, wolf. It could certainly be if the allegations are true enormously damaging to stormy Daniels’ attorney, the one prior to Mr. Avenatti. If he was working against his clients in collusion with Michael Cohen as has been alleged, he’s in a lot of trouble. But this feels like an attempt to free Stormy Daniels from the agreement that she signed in exchange for $130,000 and not to talk about this alleged affair. If the allegations are true, a judge could say, this agreement was reached there bad faith and so you are free to — you’re free to speak. I’m not sure that points to the president other than the fact that if Michael Cohen colluded, if he was sort of sub orning and helping the activity associated with this attorney, that doesn’t speak well to Michael Cohen’s character or his willingness to lie or observance of the law."
