The lawyer representing the porn actress Stormy Daniels has said he now represents three other women who he claims had relationships with Donald Trump and were paid “hush money” before the 2016 US presidential election.
Michael Avenatti first revealed the information at a community forum in West Hollywood, California, and later tweeted the accusation.
“Three additional women. All paid hush money through various means,” he wrote.
“Time for Michael Cohen and Donald Trump to come 100 per cent clean with the American people. All the documents, all the tapes, NOW.”
At the community forum on Thursday, Mr Avenatti was asked if he had evidence the woman had relationships with Mr Trump and said: “Yes.”
He said he was “not at liberty to share” the evidence because he did not have permission from his clients to disclose specifics.
But Mr Avenatti said the women, who contacted him months ago, were “paid hush money prior to the 2016 election.”
He called on the US president and his former longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to come forward and disclose information about the women and their supposed relationships with Mr Trump.
Mr Avenatti said at least one of the women claimed to be pregnant at the time they signed the agreement.
“They should release the information to the American people now,” Mr Avenatti said.
“Enough with the games.”
He added: ”Last time I checked they weren’t just handing out checks to anyone whether they had a relationship or not.”
Ms Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has said she had sex with Mr Trump in 2006, when he was married, but he has consistently denied it.
Days before the 2016 presidential election, she was paid $130,000 (£100,000) to stay silent in a deal handled by Mr Cohen. She is suing to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement.
