According to The Associated Press, a request for a gag order against lawyer Michael Avenatti was from the former Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen. Avenatti says he represents the three women, including Daniels, to have the claim had relationships with Trump and were paid, prior to the election in 2016.

U.S. District Judge S. James Otero, in a hearing on the order, not immediately issue the request but said that it is “serious business.” The judge said that the bar is for a gag order, and it seems to have not been met.
Cohen was behind on a payment of $130,000 to Daniel in the months before the elections to keep quiet about an alleged meeting with Trump in 2006. Trump later refunded the payment, although he denied any affair.
Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, Trump sued for defamation, for the removal of your account as a “con job” and is also sued to the end of the confidentiality agreement that they signed.
Avenatti disclosed, he has other customers, who say they had relationships with trump, but did not disclose further details.
“There are three additional female clients of mine, were not disclosed, were paid hush money before the 2016 election, whether it is made from Michael Cohen on behalf of the President, a position Michael Cohen, or the AMI,” Avenatti told KABC.
