Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels, unveiled a sketch of “the thug” the porn star says threatened her to keep quiet about a sexual affair she alleges she had with President Trump.
The drawing released on ABC’s “The View” Tuesdayshows a man with a light beard, hair pushed back from his face and wearing a hoodie.
The man was described as between 5 feet 9 and 6 feet tall and “lean but fit.”
Avenatti urged viewers to send in their tips to firstname.lastname@example.org because he and Daniels are offering a $100,000 reward to whoever identifies him.
“If you positively identify him, we’re going to pay you $100,000 because we want to get to the bottom of who this is,” he said on the show. “We think we know who sent him but we want to confirm it.”
Asked how she remembered such details of a man she saw fleetingly seven years ago, Daniels said he was “handsome.”
“That’s why he stood out to me because I thought honestly he was sort of handsome, when I saw him when I was parking, I thought that’s somebody’s husband,” she said.
Daniels, who alleges she had an affair with Trump after meeting him at a celebrity golf tournament in 2006, said she was approached by the unidentified man, who told her to “leave Trump alone.”
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said the incident happened in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011.
“And a guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,’ ” she said during an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” last month. “And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone.”
Avenatti earlier this month said Daniels was working with a sketch artist to come up with an image of the man.
He used his Twitter account earlier Tuesday to promote the release of the sketch.
“This morning on @TheView, @stormydaniels and I will release the composite sketch of the thug who threatened my client and her little girl in Las Vegas,” he wrote. “This is a search for the truth.”
Daniels and Avenatti have been in a legal battle with Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, over a nondisclosure agreement she signed before the 2016 election and for which she received a $130,000 payment from Cohen.
They contend the agreement isn’t valid because Trump never signed the legal papers.
The FBI raided Cohen’s office, home and hotel room last week, seeking information and documents about that payment.
