Trump calls sketch released by Stormy Daniels a ‘total con job’

Trump calls sketch released by Stormy Daniels a ‘total con job’

President Trump suggested on Wednesday that the man who adult-film star Stormy Daniels says threatened her in a Las Vegas parking lot is “nonexistent.”

Daniels and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, unveiled a composite sketch of the man on ABC’s “The View” on Tuesday. Daniels, who says she had an affair with Trump in 2006, said the man approached her and her young daughter in 2011 after she had agreed to tell her story to a tabloid magazine and told her to leave Trump alone. According to Daniels, the man — a “lean but fit” white male in his 30s or 40s — then looked at her daughter and said, “That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.”

Avenatti is offering $131,000 for information leading to the man’s identification, asking the public to send tips to the email address idthethug@gmail.com.

“A sketch years later about a nonexistent man,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday. “A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

It was the first time Trump addressed the Stormy scandal on Twitter.

Avenatti fired back with a reference to last week’s FBI raid on the office and hotel room of Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer, who made a $130,000 hush money payment to Daniels 11 days before the 2016 presidential election.

“FBI search warrants uncovering EXISTING documents and recordings showing con job after con job pulled on REAL people and very REAL American citizens (who didn’t know it),” Avenatti wrote on Twitter, adding: “In my experience, there is nothing better in litigation than having a completely unhinged, undisciplined opponent who is prone to shooting himself in the foot. Always leads to BIGLY problems…like new claims (i.e. defamation).”

The president’s Twitter missive included a retweet that contained the composite sketch alongside an undated photo of a smiling Daniels and a man bearing some resemblance to the man in the sketch.

Shortly after the sketch was released, Twitter lit up with users mockingly posting photos of famous men who look like the alleged “thug.” Among them: Quarterback Tom Brady, retired outfielder Johnny Damon and actor Willem Dafoe.

Appearing on CNN Tuesday night, Avenatti said that they have already gathered “a lot of leads.”

“We’ve narrowed the field to a handful of people that we believe that it may be,” Avenatti said. “But we want to make absolutely sure as to who this is before we make an announcement.”

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, filed suit against Cohen and Trump last month, seeking to void the nondisclosure agreement because it was allegedly never signed by Trump.
