Stormy Daniels files new lawsuit against Cohen, her old attorney

Stormy Daniels Sues Ex-Lawyer She Says Was ‘Puppet’ for Trump, Cohen

"Somehow Rudy Giuliani thinks my client isn't entitled to be believed because she was in the adult industry", he said.

"That said, Attorney Davidson is very happy that he has filed this lawsuit because he strongly believes that the filing constitutes a full and complete waiver of the attorney-client privilege", said Mr Wedge in a statement.

The first lady's spokeswoman reproached Giuliani for his comments on Thursday, CNN reports.

"I don't believe Mrs. Trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani", said Stephanie Grisham, her communications director.

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels speaks outside federal court in NY on April 16, 2018.

Guiliani also suggested Stormy Daniels' career meant her claims to have slept with Donald Trump while he was married should not be believed.

This week, Giuliani claimed that the country's leader Kim Jong begged Trump "on his hands and knees" to go to the canceled Singapore summit. "Stormy Daniels?" Giuliani said while shaking his head.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles on Wednesday alleging that her former attorney, Ketih Davidson, was a "puppet" for Trump and had been secretly working with the Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to get her to appear on Fox News and falsely deny the sexual tryst with Trump.

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's lawyer, arrives to an event for Sports and Fitness Day, at the White House in Washington, May 30, 2018.

"Curiously silent, which is out of character for him", Daniels now lawyer Michael Avenatti told Deadline today of the FNC host's lack of response to his potential pivotal role in this aspect of the whole affair.

Speaking at a conference in Israel, Giuliani trashed Daniels, asking how a porn actress could be a "star" since he never heard of her, adding that he doesn't really look at porn.

"I owe an apology to the pig for associating Giuliani with a pig", Avenatti said on CNN's "The Situation Room" Thursday.

Davidson also tipped off Cohen in February when he found out that Clifford was changing lawyers and was planning to publicly disclose her relationship with Trump and in March when he learned that she was about to sue Cohen and Trump, according to her lawsuit.

Daniels has said she had sex with a married Trump in 2006.
