The radicalized, Trump-obsessed lawyer, Michael Avenatti, and his porn star client have been asking good Americans to fund their endless efforts. (for now over 500,000) For what, I am not too sure.
“We are short of our goal and need some help,” Avenatti tweeted
However, here is what Stormy told a reporter to explain her and his lust for cash:
According to the post on “Crowd Justice,” the site the pair are using to raise the funds, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said:
“I am attempting to speak honestly and openly to the American people about my relationship with now President Donald Trump, as well as the intimidation and tactics that he, together with his attorney Michael Cohen, have used to silence me.”
As for why they need the money, the fundraising post says,
“I need funds to pay for: attorneys’ fees; out-of-pocket costs associated with the lawsuit, arbitration, and my right to speak openly; security expenses; and damages that may be awarded against me if I speak out and ultimately lose to Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen.”
Get that last part, she wants money in the event they lose and have to pay up. “Damages that may be awarded against me.” So she implies some personal understanding that her breaching the NDA, at Avenatti’s request, is making herself liable for those damages.
This is the first sign in her a statements that she recognizes any accountability.
So it’s outrageous to me that someone would be breaking a contract (or the law) then run a scheme to raise money for penalties of doing it. Sort of surreal.
On top of that she is commanding top billing and pay for her appearances. In January, she got paid 75,000 in Las Vegas for one night’s booking. But she needs to ask people for their hard earned money to support her and her crooked lawyers agenda? (that could put her yearly income in the the range of 10+ million) She needs legal funding help?
So she wants you to pay the price for her breaching her own NDA.
