Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti made an argument for why Americans should care about his client's story, as the porn star's interview with 60 Minutes is slated to air Sunday night.
'I think this is about engaging in thuggish behavior, threats, intimidation and hiding the money trail,' Avenatti said Thursday morning on CNN.
Daniels was paid $130,000 in 2016, just weeks before the presidential election, to keep quiet about an alleged decade-old affair with now President Donald Trump.

'I don't think it's ever occurred in the history of the United States,' Daniels' lawyer said.
Daniels looks to be going public anyway.
60 Minutes has put out a 10-second clip, showing Daniels sitting down across from Anderson Cooper, the CNN host who also does work for the CBS News magazine.
'I guess I'm not 100 per cent sure why you're doing this,' Cooper then said.Read More...
