We all know by now that Donald Trump and his legal team are pissed that 60 Minutes will air an interview with Stormy Daniels talking about the alleged affair that took place back in 2006. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen has reportedly been working to prevent 60 Minutes from airing the interview (which has been bumped to March 25th). According to Stormy’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, they’ve been playing pretty dirty in their fight to keep Stormy silent.
Michael Avenatti appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning to talk about Stormy’s 60 Minutes interview. He wouldn’t give too many details (gotta tune in to CBS on March 25th, everyone!), but he did say there are two main themes to the interview: the alleged affair and the subsequent cover-up. Like the check for $130,000 and the hush agreement that Trump didn’t sign.
Mika Brzezinski wasn’t satisfied by Michael’s teasing, and she asked him if Stormy has been threatened in any way, like with physical harm. Michael answered, “Yes.” When asked to elaborate, Michael clammed up and wouldn’t say more. He was then asked if any of the threats came from Trump, and again, same answer. But it will all be made clear during the 60 Minutes interview.
JUST IN: Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti tells @Morning_Joe that his client has been "physically threatened."

As for whether or not Michael and Stormy were aware of any efforts from inside the White House to kill the interview, he said: “We’ve certainly heard through the grapevine and through others that it’s been contemplated.”
I know Michael Avenatti wants me to watch 60 Minutes on March 25th for the answer to this mystery. Here’s the thing: if the tape on the back of Trump’s tie stopped sticking, he’d threaten the CEO of 3M, along with the number three and the letter M. So I’m guessing he did threaten Stormy. But how, I wonder. My guess is he probably sent her a threatening DM through his personal Twitter account while wearing a plastic moustache attached to fake glasses in an attempt to be anonymous. So crafty!
