The shell company former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen used to pay Stormy Daniels agreed to throw out its hush-money agreement with the adult film star, a lawyer for Essential Consultants said in a Friday court filing.
Cohen’s company asked Daniels’ to give back the $130,000 she was paid to stay silent about an alleged affair she says she had with Donald Trump in 2006. The president denies the affair.
In his letter to Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti, Cohen’s lawyer Brent Blakely said that his client’s company “agrees to accept the rescission of the Confidential Settlement Agreement” and “demands that the full consideration paid to Plaintiff, $130,000.00, be returned.”
Avenatti pushed back after the filing Friday, saying that he doesn’t have to accept the offer and that he and Daniels “will never settle the cases absent full disclosure and accountability.”
In an interview with CNN, Avenatti called it a “Hail Mary” to try to avoid Trump and Cohen facing deposition.
“Michael Cohen is back to playing games and trying to protect Donald Trump. He is now pulling a legal stunt to try and “fix it” so that we can’t depose Trump,” he wrote on Twitter.
