Alleged text messages between Cohen and Davidson from January 17 included in the suit feature the two men planning to set up the television appearance after In Touch magazine published excerpts of a 2011 interview with Daniels about the affair.
Avenatti also said Daniels "should be celebrated for her courage, strength and intelligence", criticizing the character of Giuliani and Trump as they continue to deny his client's allegations.
Not true, argued Davidson Thursday, saying she had pushed him repeatedly to make a nondisclosure deal with Cohen and wanted to do anything she could to avoid breaching the agreement and potentially having to forefeit the $130,000.
In one text message, Cohen called Davidson a "pal", according to the complaint. Davidson has denied the claims. "This is about the extent that Mr. Cohen and the president have gone to intimidate this woman, to silence her, to threaten her, and to put her under their thumb", Avenatti, her current lawyer, said at the time.
"I don't believe Stormy Daniels", he said.
Argentina cancels match with Israel amid protests
Alon Liel, a former director-general of Israel's Foreign Ministry, saw the dustup as fallout from the embassy move. It is unclear whether Argentina will play another warm-up, or arrive in Moscow ahead of schedule.
"Rudy is great, but Rudy is Rudy", Trump told reporters outside the White House as he prepared to head to Quebec for the Group of Seven Summit. His communications with Cohen were "authorized by" and "made with the full knowledge" of Daniels, Davidson alleged. Daniels has alleged that Davidson was secretly communicating and colluding with Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney, behind her back, both before and after the agreement was reached, acting as a "puppet" for Trump.
Why would The First Lady want to be associated with one of her husband's alleged mistresses, especially when she just had surgery for a "benign kidney condition", and had been out of public view for 25 days. "There was a significant cover-up here as part of an attempt to deceive the American people and Mrs. Trump and we intend on getting to the bottom of it".
"I have her tentatively scheduled for Hannity tonight", a text message allegedly from Cohen says.
"Look, Rudy's great, but Rudy is Rudy", Trump eloquently said all that there was to be said. "He is an embarrassment to the profession and seems to have forgotten what the attorney-client privilege is all about".
