Stormy Daniels lawyer predicts Trump deposition, says they’ve found his ‘Achilles heel’

Stormy Daniels’s lawyers told “Real Time” host Bill Maher on Friday that he has found President TrumpDonald John TrumpGOP lawmakers preparing to vote on bill allowing migrant children to be detained longer than 20 days: report Wasserman Schultz: Infants separated from their parents are in Florida immigrant shelters Ex-White House ethics chief: Sarah Sanders tweet violates ethics laws MORE’s “Achilles' heel” and predicts he can get Trump and Michael Cohen to appear for a deposition.

“I think we are going to get an opportunity to depose Michael Cohen and the president within the next 60 to 90 days and ... I truly believe this is the Achilles' heel of the president,” Avenatti said about the president and his personal lawyer. “He has trusted a moron with his innermost secrets."

“The problem is he has surrounded himself in his adult life with people that are incompetent and the chickens are going to come home to roost,” Avenatti added.


Maher said that even if Trump gets a deposition, he might not show up to court and trigger a constitutional crisis.

Avenatti predicted the president would show up to court, but argued that it might not matter since he thinks Cohen will end up telling the court everything he knows about the president.

“Michael Cohen knows where almost all the bodies are buried and I think he is going to sing like a canary,” Avenatti said. “I know he is going to fold.”

“When you have a fixer, you need two things, at least. You need a guy who is tough and you need a guy that is smart,” Avenatti said. “This guy is neither tough nor smart.”
