Tom Brady found himself unwittingly pulled into another Trump controversy Tuesday as porn star Stormy Daniels released a sketch of the man she says threatened her to keep quiet about her relationship with the president - a drawing that bears an uncanny resemblance to the Patriots superstar.
Lawyer Michael Avenatti is all over TV, but it's rare Stormy Daniels comes out and faces the tough questions herself.
Then Daniels revealed the sketch of the man she claims threatened her as she arrived at a "mommy and me" fitness class in 2011. "We're offering a $100K reward leading to the identification of this man", Michael said as he joined Stormy on the episode of The View.
She said that she didn't approach the police because then she would have been forced to reveal to the police department, and the world, that "I had sex with Donald Trump".
A day before appearing on "The View", Daniels attended a Manhattan court hearing centering on materials the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized from Cohen in a raid last week. She said she is speaking out because she is exhausted of being threatened. "And a guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone".
Daniels said she was in a parking lot preparing to go into a fitness class, and was pulling her infant daughter's auto seat and diaper bag out of her vehicle. Forget the story.' And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, 'That's a attractive little girl. Cohen's lawyers, meanwhile, sought a temporary restraining order to prevent investigators from reviewing the material and requested that a third party special master decide what investigators can see.More news: Blake Shelton Reveals If He 'Thinks About' Marrying Gwen Stefani

McCain pressed Daniels again, asking why she hadn't gone directly to the police following that incident.
The sketch released by Daniels and Avenatti showed a man described as being in his 30s or 40s with sharp cheekbones and wavy hair. Louise Sunshine, a longtime family friend of Trump who helped him build his real estate business in Manhattan, said in an email that she had "no idea" of the identity of the man in the sketch.
Co-host Joy Behar said that it reminded her of when Trump brought Bill Clinton's accusers to the debate with Hillary Clinton.
"I can announce that we got comfortable with the security plan last night for my client".
Avenatti recently expanded the lawsuit, adding a defamation allegation against Cohen, who has accused Daniels of lying about the alleged affair and her accusation that someone physically threatened her after she went public. Avenatti told The Washington Post he wants to ensure materials relevant to Daniels's own suit to void her hush agreement are preserved. He has never thought that the little man or especially women and even more women like me mattered.
