The attorney for Stormy Daniels shot down the possibility that Daniels has a "Monica Lewinsky" dress that could prove an affair between the adult film actress and President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump rages against '60 Minutes' for interview with Krebs Cornyn spox: Neera Tanden has 'no chance' of being confirmed as Biden's OMB pick Pa. lawmaker was informed of positive coronavirus test while meeting with Trump: report MORE.

In a tweet Tuesday, attorney Michael Avenatti said that Daniels doesn't have a dress that might contain Trump's DNA, but said there was progress in proving that Daniels had been threatened by a man to drop the story in 2011.

Avenatti's tweet follows a remark from Alana Evans, a friend of Daniels, who told CNN's Jim Sciutto that Daniels "still has the dress" from her alleged one-night stand with the president in 2006, shortly after his marriage to first lady Melania TrumpMelania TrumpUSAID administrator tests positive for COVID-19 The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by the UAE Embassy in Washington, DC - COVID-19 fears surround Thanksgiving holiday The Hill's 12:30 Report: Trump holds his last turkey pardon ceremony MORE.

“All I know is that Stormy still has the dress that she wore from that night,” Evans said.

In 1997, scandal erupted when Lewinsky, then a White House intern, told friend Linda Tripp that she still had a semen-stained dress from her sexual encounter with President Clinton earlier that year.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, took a $130,000 payment from Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen in 2016 as part of a nondisclosure agreement that she says prevented her from speaking about the alleged affair.


Cohen has admitted to making the payment but denies that Trump knew anything about it, saying it came from his personal funds. The White House has repeatedly denied Daniels's claims, and has suggested that the alleged incident in 2011 in which Daniels was reportedly threatened to drop the story in a parking lot never happened.

"The president strongly, clearly and consistently has denied these underlying claims. The only one who has been inconsistent is the one making the claims," White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said on Monday.

"The president doesn't believe that any of the claims Ms. Daniels made in the interview are accurate."
