Michael Avenatti, the left-wing attorney best understood for representing pornography star Stormy Daniels, revealed Friday that he and Daniels would attend the congressional hearing in which President Trump’s disgraced previous attorney Michael Cohen is set to testify.
” I am pleased to announce that @StormyDaniels and I will participate in the congressional hearing when Cohen affirms. Which is only appropriate viewing as it would have never ever occurred but for @StormyDaniels,” Avenatti tweeted.

Cohen is slated to offer his testament prior to your home Oversight and Federal Government Reform Committee on February 7 to respond to concerns from Democrats about supposed connections in between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, along with his admission that he sent hush loan payments to females claiming they made love with Trump.
Avenatti said it was “appropriate” for him to go to with Daniels since he declared the Cohen statement would not have actually occurred without her.
Cohen declared he paid Daniels $130,000 with his personal loan in 2016, setting off a wave of speculation over whether he paid the adult movie star to keep her mouth shut about her interactions with Trump.
He pleaded guilty in November to lying before congressional authorities about legal work he provided for a Trump-related task in Moscow.
A judge sentenced Cohen to 3 years in federal prison. The previous Trump lawyer will voluntarily surrender himself to federal custody on March 6.
