Much better looking than Gina Haspel.
The attorney for Stormy Daniels, the pornographic actor who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump, said Daniels had been threatened with physical harm.
Attorney Michael Avenatti declined to say whether or not the threats had come from the president, in an interview on Friday about the alleged affair.
Towards the end of a 12-minute interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski asked if Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, “had been threatened in any way”.
Avenatti said: “Yes.”
Brzezinski then asked: “Was she threatened with physical harm?”
Avenatti replied: “Yes.”
He declined to answer ensuing questions about whether Clifford’s life had been threatened or if the president had issued any of the threats.
“I’m not at liberty to discuss it,” Avenatti said. “You can ask it 17 different ways. I’ll give you the same answer.”
Avenatti said details of the threat, and the alleged affair that Clifford has said took place in 2006 and 2007, would be made public in an interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes on 25 March.

And there’s this:
President Donald Trump and his personal attorney are trying to get a lawsuit by adult film star Stormy Daniels transferred to federal court — and they claim she’s on the hook for at least $20 million for violating a secrecy agreement signed just before the election.
An attorney for the actress accused the Trump team of “bullying tactics” for the legal maneuver, which is aimed at pushing the dispute into private arbitration.
“To put it simply, they want to hide the truth from the American people. We will oppose this effort at every turn,” said Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford.
