Trump Supporters Protested Stormy Daniels In Florida And It Didn’t Go As Planned…
Although Michael Cohen is busy with the FBI, who raided his home, hotel room, and offices last week for information about his payoffs to adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal (two women Trump had affairs with after he married Melania Trump), the president’s personal lawyer apparently has time to organize protests too.
At least, that’s what Michael Avenatti, Daniels lawyer, believes. On Twitter, Avenatti accused President Donald Trump’s “fixer” of staging a protest against Daniels in Florida:

Cohen hasn’t had a very good year. After reports came out that he had paid Daniels $130,000 so that she wouldn’t go public regarding her relationship with Trump, Cohen confirmed the stories, claiming that Trump had no idea of the exchange. This admission only got Daniels, and McDougal (McDougal was allegedly paid $1.6 million) more notoriety since it confirmed that there was an affair.
He was also being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as part of the Russia probe. Cohen was integral in trying to help Trump open a hotel in Moscow. While it’s not clear if Mueller found anything about Russia, he did find other alarming evidence outside of the scope of his investigation and brought it to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Cohen is trying his best to appear merely bothered by the raid. “I would be lying to you if I told that I am [worried],” Cohen said on CNN. “Do I need this in my life? No. Do I want to be involved in this? No.”
Meanwhile, Avenatti continually appears in interviews and he thinks the raids were just the beginning of Cohen’s problems.
“I will tell you, these raids that occurred on Monday, they’re not the last raids,” Avenatti told CNN host Anderson Cooper. “I know that for a fact. There are other raids that are contemplated. I anticipate them coming within the next week.”
If Cohen did plan the protest, that would be pretty impressive given everything he has to deal with right now, even if only four people showed up.
