Stormy Daniels Seeks Info From Treasury Department About ‘Suspicious’ Bank Activity
MORE AND MORE
Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing adult-film star Stormy Daniels, on Tuesday sent a letter to the Treasury Department asking it to release information about possible “suspicious” bank activity surrounding the alleged hush-money payment Daniels received from Donald Trump’s lawyer. The Wall Street Journalreported last month that First Republic Bank, which Trump lawyer Michael Cohen reportedly used to transfer $130,000 to Daniels, filed a “suspicious activity report” with the Treasury. “We believe it is going to undercut the claims of Mr. Cohen relating to the transfer of the money, the flow of the money, and what exactly happened here” Avenatti told CNN. Daniels is suing the president, arguing that the nondisclosure agreement she signed is not valid because Trump himself never signed it.
