Trump May Have Paid Hush Money to Two More Women

Michael Avenatti, lawyer for Stormy Daniels and beneficiary of financial leaks that may finally doom the Trump presidency, revealed in an interview on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ today that he is in talks with two more women who had affairs with the president, and were paid by Trump, via Michael Cohen, to keep quiet.

The information isn’t rock solid yet, as Avenatti was quick to point out:

“They’re not fully vetted, but there are at least two I think are on solid ground. I think that as the evidence rolls out over the coming months disclosures are going to be made that my client was not alone as relates to these payments.”

“It is a process of vetting. We want to be careful about what we state. They may create additional exposure. They may prove to be problematic.”

For obvious reasons, he didn’t go into the specific details, but he did say that the totals were close to the $130,000 paid to Daniels. Cohen was reimbursed by Trump for that payout, a fact that was initially leaked by Rudy Giuliani on television, and later confirmed by the release of Trump’s financial statements.

Nothing is confirmed, of course, but judging by Avenatti’s track record—his scoop about illicit payments to Trump from AT&T, Novartis, and a Russian oligarch were dead on—smart money says it’s only a matter of time before the parade of Trump’s former lovers adds a couple new members.
