Michael Avenatti tweeted the photo of Daniels alongside Lois Gibson, whom he touted as “the foremost forensic artist in the world.” Daniels can be seen reviewing images of faces while Gibson sketches on an easel.

Gibson claims she has helped law enforcement identify more than 750 criminals.


The photo comes the day after Avenatti hyped a “major announcement” about efforts to identify the individual who Daniels said threatened her and her infant daughter in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 to remain quiet about her alleged affair with Trump.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, filed the suit last month claiming that a nondisclosure agreement she signed regarding the alleged affair is invalid because he never signed it.

Her alleged 2006 affair with Trump has remained in the spotlight since The Wall Street Journal reported in January that Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, paid her $130,000 in in the weeks leading up to the election for her to keep quiet about her claims. 

Last week, Trump denied knowing about the payment. It was the first time he had addressed the issue publicly.

"You'll have to ask Michael Cohen," Trump said. "Michael is my attorney. You'll have to ask Michael."
