Stormy Daniels attorney, Michael Avenatti, just declared that his client does not have a “Monica Lewinsky” dress that could prove an affair between the adult film actress and the president.
In a tweet Tuesday, Avenatti said that Daniels doesn’t have a dress that might contain Trump’s DNA, but said there is an advancement in proving that Daniels had been threatened by a man to drop the story in 2011.
“To address the rumor: We DO NOT have a “Monica Lewinsky type” dress. Thus, there is no dress to be tested for DNA. But we are making progress on the assault/stalking that occurred around the same time that Mr. Cohen threatened @intouchweekly magazine in May 2011. #coverup #basta”

This tweet from Avenatti follows a remark from Alana Evans who is a friend of Daniels. She told CNN’s Jim Sciutto that Daniels “still has the dress” from her alleged one-night stand with the president in 2006. This encounter happened shortly after his marriage to Melania, the First Lady.
“All I know is that Stormy still has the dress that she wore from that night,” Evans said.
Daniels attorney is referencing the scandal that erupted when White House intern, Monica Lewinsky, told her friends, Linda Tripp, that she still had a semen-stained dress from her encounter with then-President Bill Clinton.
Daniels took a $130,000 payment from Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen in 2016 as part of a nondisclosure agreement that she says prevented her from speaking about the alleged affair. Cohen has admitted to the payment but denies that Trump knew anything about it. He maintains the money came from personal funds.
The White House has repeatedly denied the accusation from Daniels and has suggested that the incident in 2011 in which she was reportedly threatened may have never happened.
“The president strongly, clearly and consistently has denied these underlying claims. The only one who has been inconsistent is the one making the claims,” White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said on Monday.
“The president doesn’t believe that any of the claims Ms. Daniels made in the interview are accurate.”
