Lawyer says three women paid hush money over alleged affairs

Cops reportedly planned Stormy Daniels' strip club arrest

Before the two parted, Avenatti accused Dershowitz of working for Trump, saying, "I want to know about the relationship between you and Donald Trump".

Michael Avenatti says he is representing THREE OTHER WOMEN (in addition to his client Stormy Daniels) who claim they were paid to keep quiet (unclear about what) before the election.

Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with now-President Donald Trump in 2006, was arrested in early July for allegedly touching a patron while operating in a "sexually oriented business", which is against OH law.

At a hearing in Los Angeles, U.S. District Judge S. James Otero said he was reluctant to curtail the free speech rights of Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti.

Daniels also sued Cohen last month, alleging he colluded with her former lawyer to get her to appear on Fox News and falsely deny a sexual tryst with Trump.

Winning Mega Millions jackpot ticket sold in California
The odds of winning both jackpots are one in 75 quadrillion - that's 15 zeros - according to data scientists at Allstate. The largest jackpot was in 2012 when three people purchased winning tickets to split a $656 million jackpot.

The three unidentified women described by Avenatti are in addition to Daniels, who claims she was paid $130,000 for her silence about a prior affair with Trump.

Otero ordered a three-month stay of the case in April in light of a federal criminal investigation of Cohen that is continuing in the Southern District of NY. She is suing to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement. "Mr. Avenatti's actions are mainly driven by his seemingly unquenchable thirst for publicity", wrote Cohen's attorney Brent Blakely in a court filing earlier this month.

The judge said the constitution is "neither a trick nor an illusion" and told Blakely that his request was 'serious business'.

Blakely claims he canceled it after he saw Avenatti on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" on Sunday, hinting that Cohen or his attorneys may have shared information with him. The judge said that the bar for a gag order is high, and that it doesn't appear to have been met.

"They should release the information to the American people now". Following the April 9 FBI raids on Cohen's New York properties in a separate criminal case out of New York, Otero granted Cohen's request to put the California civil proceedings on hold for at least 90 days, while the criminal investigation proceeds. "Enough with the games". The motion said Avenatti had been running a "smear campaign" against Cohen. I am pleased to report that all indications are that Michael Cohen and Donald Trump have failed miserably in their effort to prevent me from speaking the truth to the press and the public. Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, declined to comment but cautioned against believing everything that a lawyer says in the heat of a legal battle.
