Stormy Daniels’ old attorney plotted with President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to get her on the Sean Hannity Show and deny her affair with the president, according to a new lawsuit filed Wednesday, June 5, 2018.
The porn actress is suing Keith Davidson, her former lawyer and peddler of Hollywood dirt and sex tapes, alleging he breached his fiduciary duty by secretly collaborating with Cohen and disclosing information about her legal strategy.
Earlier this year, Daniels became a household name after filing a lawsuit against Cohen and Trump to invalidate a “hush agreement” she signed weeks before the 2016 election. Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence on her alleged 2006 romp with Trump, then a real-estate mogul and reality TV star.
Daniels’ legal filings reveal how Davidson, the counselor who inked her non-disclosure agreement, supposedly enjoyed a chummy relationship with Cohen behind the scenes.
Another allegation in the lawsuit: Cohen held a meeting with First Lady Melania Trump at Mar-a-Lago in March to discredit Daniels.
Davidson’s spokesman called the lawsuit “outrageously frivolous” and said it was an attempt by Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, to distract from negative press about his former law firm, which was slapped with a $10-million bankruptcy settlement.
“That said, Attorney Davidson is very happy that [Avenatti] has filed this lawsuit because [Davidson] strongly believes that the filing constitutes a full and complete waiver of the attorney-client privilege,” said the spokesman, Dave Wedge, in a statement to The Daily Beast.
Wedge appeared to make lemonade out of legal lemons.
“Thankfully, the truth can now finally come out to rebut the false narrative about Attorney Davidson that Mr. Avenatti has been pushing in his more than 175 television appearances and countless other media interviews,” Wedge continued. “Attorney Davidson believes that the American people deserve to know the entire truth—and they soon will. This lawsuit has made that happen.”
Keith Davidson should have been charged after his arrest for extortion not long ago. He is a disgrace to the profession. Watch him now try and distract away from his own unethical conduct. Ms. Daniels deserved better. https://t.co/wd6rfnFCuQ via @thedailybeast
