Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Just Claimed Trump Had Her Arrested Today To Get Revenge

Michael Avenatti, lawyer for adult film star Stormy Daniels, legal name Stephanie Clifford, confirmed very early this morning that she was arrested during a performance at an Ohio strip club on three counts of illegally touching a patron.

“Just rcvd word that my client @StormyDaniels was arrested in Columbus Ohio whole performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs,” Avenatti wrote. “This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges. #Basta”

Daniels was arrested in Ohio because the law there states that anyone who appears nude or seminude is not allowed to touch someone not related to them while nude or seminude. Avenatti’s implication that this was politically motivated is an implication that Trump is trying to get revenge on Stormy.

Remember that we only know about Stormy because she decided to tell the truth about Trump, which caused an FBI raid on Trump’s personal attorney in the process. Getting her arrested also makes it more difficult for her to work with investigators against Trump and Cohen because she might be open to making some kind of deal to make these new charges go away.

Franklin County Municipal Court records reportedly show that she was released Thursday morning after posting a $6,054 bail. Avenatti says they will contest all charges and can’t believe the police would waste resources on such a seemingly low priority arrest. The implication that this was politically motivated is strong.
