Avenatti: Trump’s ‘Going To Ultimately Resign the Presidency’

‘I don’t think I’ve been wrong about anything yet in the last five to six weeks’
By Grabien Staff

After Michael Cohen "flips" on President Trump, the commander in chief will "ultimately resign," predicted the attorney for Stormy Daniels, Michael Avenatti.

The attorney and frequent CNN guest made the bold claim during an interview with Jake Tapper.

Asked how he can make such a "wild" claim, Avenatti said: "Well it is really not wild. My record thus far has been spot on. I don’t think I’ve been wrong about anything yet in the last five to six weeks."

"Jake, there is a lot of evidence in this case, there is a lot of shoes yet to drop," he continued. "Michael Cohen is not going to hold up. I’ve been saying that for weeks and now others are repeating it and getting on the bandwagon. Michael Cohen is going to flip on this president and he knows where the bodies are buried, or at least many of them."

"And I do not think that the president will last through the balance of his term," the attorney said. "I just don’t. Now we’ll find out if I’m right or wrong. But I think he’s going to ultimately resign the presidency."

Here's a transcript of the exchange:

AVENATTI: "I think we’re very pleased with the hearing and how it proceeded, Jake. The federal judge, Judge Otero, who is very learned and diligent and a no-nonsense judge called out Michael Cohen and Donald Trump for submitting a motion that he described as having, 'gaping holes in it.' They hadn’t done what they needed to do to relating to the declaration and the reason for that, Jake, is very clear. It is similar to why they didn’t have Donald Trump sign the agreement. So they would have deniability, sign the N.D.A. They haven’t wanted to commit a declaration to the court acknowledging the seriousness of what is transpiring in the Southern District of New York and acknowledging it is Michael Cohen’s intention to plead the Fifth Amendment against self incrimination and if we take a step back and think about, it that is a very, very big deal. This is the president’s right-hand counsel with him for many, many years who only a couple of weeks ago the president referred to — the press and others and American people to as related to what happened on this agreement and this payment. And now come to find out he’s going to take the Fifth amendment against self incrimination. This is a big deal."
TAPPER: "You said this week that you don’t think President Trump will serve out his entire term. Where does that come from? That is a pretty wild claim."
AVENATTI: "Well it is really not wild. My record thus far has been spot on. I don’t think I’ve been wrong about anything yet in the last five to six weeks. And I stand behind that claim that I made yesterday. Jake, there is a lot of evidence in this case, there is a lot of shoes yet to drop. Michael Cohen is not going to hold up. I’ve been saying that for weeks and now others are repeating it and getting on the bandwagon. Michael Cohen is going to flip on this president and he knows where the bodies are buried, or at least many of them. And I do not think that the president will last through the balance of his term. I just don’t. Now we’ll find out if I’m right or wrong. But I think he’s going to ultimately resign the presidency."
