Stormy Daniels' lawyer posts photo of mystery disc, teasing a 'picture'

a person with collar shirt © Provided by The Hill Stormy Daniels' attorney hinted on Thursday that he may have hard evidence that the adult-film actress had an affair with President Trump, posting a photo on Twitter of what appeared to be a compact disc in a safe.

"If 'a picture is worth a thousand words,' how many words is this worth?????" Michael Avenatti tweeted.

While not explicitly stated, Avenatti appeared to suggest that the disc may contain photographic evidence of Daniels' alleged affair with the president. Avenatti has previously declined comment on whether such evidence exists.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing to void a non-disclosure agreement that she says blocks her from speaking publicly about the alleged affair with Trump more than a decade ago.

She was paid $130,000 by Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen in 2016, just weeks before the presidential election. That payment, she has said, was intended to buy her silence on the alleged affair.

Cohen has acknowledged making the payment, but has insisted that it came from his own personal funds. The White House has denied that Trump ever had an affair with Daniels.

In court papers filed last week, Trump's attorneys accused Daniels of repeatedly violating the non-disclosure agreement, arguing that doing so exposed her to paying $20 million in damages.

Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model, has also come forward with allegations that she had an affair with Trump years ago. The White House has also denied that affair.
