Michael Avenatti Responds to Latest Giuliani Flub: ‘This Guy Is a Walking Train Wreck’

Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing adult film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump, says Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani is a “walking train wreck” and that Giuliani should keep talking because he’s only helping Avenatti and Daniels’ case. Avenatti made the comment to MSNBC’s Joy Reid on AM Joy Saturday. The remark came after HuffPo published an article in which Giuliani seemed to once again contradict what the White House had previously said about Trump’s role in the Department of Justice’s anti-trust case involving the AT&T/Time Warner merger deal. AT&T was one of the several companies that reportedly paid Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen hundreds of thousands of dollars for “insight” into the Trump administration. “So you uncovered all of this information about the companies that were paying Michael Cohen. Then you have Giuliani, who is supposed to be helping, come out and say, it didn’t because he [Cohen] was so ineffective. He didn’t help. But it was the president who came between AT&T and this merger deal,” Reid said. “What does it say to you that they’re having to reverse on that? But you have Giuliani, at least suggesting, that there was a direct relationship, pay-to-play for AT&T,” the MSNBC host asked. Avenatti responded by saying that Giuliani “is helping” his client’s case against Trump and that he hopes Guiliani “keeps talking because every time he talks, our case gets better.” “This guy is a walking train wreck” Avenatti said, referring to Giuliani. “There’s no other way to put it. He’s a caricature of what he used to be when he was mayor and when he was a very able prosecutor. It is time that he take a step back, go out to pasture.” “He is doing considerable damage to the president and Mr. Cohen and quite honestly, his legacy. But if he wants to continue to help us, by making these ridiculous comments, that then have to be, that the White House then has to address and back off? So be it. I think the credibility is out the window,” Avenatti added. [image via screengrab]
