Rudy Giuliani, a member of President Trump’s personal legal team, lashed out against Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti, alleging that he is a “make-believe lawyer.”
“I don’t think he is a real lawyer,” Giuliani told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham in an interview that aired Wednesday evening. “He’s a make-believe lawyer. He’s got all kinds of lawsuits. I think the guy is trying to bail himself out with this case.”
The remarks follow after Ingraham showed a clip of Avenatti on MSNBC Wednesday suggesting that Giuliani had been dishonest to the American people about when and how his client was paid $130,000 by Trump’s longtime fixer Michael Cohen in an attempt to buy her silence about an alleged affair with Trump.
Giuliani has criticized Avenatti in the past. Last week, he branded Avenatti a “pimp” and a “clown” and claim that he was not interested in debating him after Avenatti called for the two to sit down for a televised debate.
“I wouldn’t debate that guy if they paid me $10 million,” Giuliani told Politico. “He’s a liar. All he does is put out statements in the press and they fawn all over him.”
Avenatti was quick to respond to Giuliani’s remarks:
Mr. Giuliani – have you even tried a single lawsuit to a jury verdict in the last 15 yrs? Have you learned the facts of the case yet? They are not that complicated FYI. Do you need cliff notes on tape? #LongPastPrimeTime #OutToPasture #Tired #DazedConfused
