Porn star Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti said there’s a line around the block of people willing to pay any financial repercussions should his client get fined for sharing the details of her alleged interaction with President Donald Trump.
Well, not exactly around the block, but Avenatti told CNN’s Michael Smerconish that there are at least 10 donors willing to pony up millions, if necessary.
Referencing the “disgorgement clause in the contract” signed by Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, Smerconish asked Avenatti to respond.
“What this essentially says that if she violates it, she owes $1 million for every episode that she goes out and speaks in violation of the confidentiality,” the CNN host said. “It occurs to me that Michael Cohen may have made a wise business decision. Everybody is laughing about him giving her $130,00, if it came from him, but he’ll get a ten-fold return on that money if in fact she speaks and violates this agreement.”
The attorney responded by suggesting “there is not a court that would enforce that at that level with $130,000 at the front end and a million liquidated damage clause per instance, no court in California is going to ever enforce that.”

Smerconish asked why Daniels doesn’t tell her story if that’s the case, and Avenatti said “we may see that.”
“I think we may see her provide a very detailed explanation of what happened, she is going to discuss what happened,” he said. “Let Mr. Trump come forward and provide his version of events and let the American people decide who is shooting straight with them and who is covering things up.”
The CNN host then asked if there have been offers to protect the former porn star if she does come forward.

“Has anyone offered, has anyone, including Larry Flint — but I want to ask this in universal sense — has anyone offered to pony up the million dollars to protect her and say ‘here, I’m good for it, go tell your story’?”
“At least ten individuals in the last three days alone,” Avenatti replied.
