Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti finally broke his silence with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell about today’s news that his adversary, Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, is teetering on the brink of giving up.
“This arrogance and this narcissism are very dangerous,” he said tonight. “This is the guy who knows where the bodies are buried and he’s gonna sing like a canary.”

Avenatti’s shrewd litigation to break Stormy Daniels’ hush money deal and exposure of the subsequent tips he received about Cohen’s bribery schemes have pushed the President’s personal lawyer to his breaking point as his high-priced legal team just split today under unclear circumstances.
Vanity Fair’s Emily Jane Fox told the Maddow Show earlier that Michael Cohen spent today with his California legal team to fight Michael Avenatti’s aggressive lawsuits. Fox also says that Cohen is very frustrated with Donald Trump for abandoning him to the SDNY’s prosecutors and angry at the Trump family in general, as well as feeling isolated. Avenatti reacted to that on MSNBC’s The Last Word:
“Nothing lasts forever.
The narcissism of this President, his arrogance, his stupidity is ultimately going to catch up to him. Because he’s not providing air cover for the guy who knows where all of the bodies are buried.
This is the guy that handled all of the nonsense for the president for 12 years.”
If there’s one thing that is going to bring down the Trump Administration, it is “all of the best people” saving their own skin and snitching on the President, which Gen. Flynn, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos have all done in Mueller’s Russia probe to dramatic effect already.
Michael Cohen’s sloppy exposure of his personal information as an agent of the Trump Organization while paying off hush money and taking bribes ultimately turned a single corporate record into a coast-to-coast legal fiasco.
But Cohen graduated from literally the worst law school in America, which Avenatti noted as the rule with the Trump legal team, not the exception on The Last Word:
What is astounding to me is that you have the President of the United States and promised the American people that he would surround himself with the best and the brightest
But instead, he has surrounded himself year in and year out with morons, who are completely incompetent. People who are not up to the task, and it is going to come back to bite him in a very big way.
The conservative Washington Times ran this column explaining how loyalty is a one way street for Donald Trump.
Even Fox News’s Emmy-winning commentator Bernie Goldberg called Trump loyalty a one way street with Donald Trump and called out the President as a narcissist for his mismanagement of the White House.
Donald Trump’s complete lack of loyalty is hurting American foreign policy in the most public way possible.
Now, President Trump is about to face his fixer flipping on him in federal criminal investigations in both New York and the with Special Counsel’s office while observers expect Mueller to file a major report in the next 45 days.
This must be why Donald Trump keeps hyping his own corruption scandal as “bigger than Watergate.”
It sure looks a lot bigger.
Donald Trump's destructive narcissism will be his downfall.@MichaelAvenatti explains to @Lawrence why #TheLastWord is that Michael Cohen will to sing like a canary since he's been cast out, isolated and caught in the #TrumpRussia, Stormy Daniels and SDNY cases.#TheResistance pic.twitter.com/VGuOtEcp3p
