Over the weekend, Stormy Daniels’s attorney issued a bit of a dare for the media to investigate Trump’s legal team. He tweeted, in part: “Hopefully some members of the media will chime in this weekend and tell us what current steps are being taken to investigate and publish on the other 13+ lawyers in the cases – Giuliani, Ryan, Harder, Blakely, etc.”
Now this is an excellent question. Hopefully some members of the media will chime in this weekend and tell us what current steps are being taken to investigate and publish on the other 13+ lawyers in the cases – Giuliani, Ryan, Harder, Blakely, etc. Why just me? #Waiting. https://t.co/tUMRnd4kZ6

Avenatti’s reply was in response to the below tweet:
Curious if anyone’s been demanding the personal financial, business and family details of @RudyGiuliani as well?

Two days prior, Avenatti said, “There’s a reason why Columbus Nova’s story keeps changing by the day and there’s a reason why they are covering-up. The truth is not pretty…but it is necessary. Mr. Trump will not serve out his term.”
It has been reported that, Andrew Intrater, CEO of Columbus Nova made payments to Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, operating under the impression that Cohen would be able to connect him to Republican donors who might make investment deals with his company. Cohen reportedly solicited donations from Intrater to the GOP ahead of the inauguration. In total, Cohen reportedly received $580,000 from Colombus Nova.
Earlier in the month, Michael Avenatti revealed through leaked documents earlier this month that Cohen received payments from a number of companies looking for access to the Trump administration.
