CNN: Stormy Daniels Lawyer Overplayed His Hand

Avenatti tried to force the president to testify. That didn't work out well for him.

CNN’s analysts criticized porn star Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, for his legal strategy, saying the attorney “overplayed his hand.”

“I think he has overplayed his hand,” CNN legal analyst Paul Callan said. “He’s seeking an expedited trial, expedited discovery.”

Callan told host Brooke Baldwin that the federal judge shot down this motion, due to the relatively trivial nature of the case. “This whole case is about whether this case should be arbitrated or not arbitrated, and nobody has gotten around to making a motion to compel arbitration,” he said.

CNN’s Gloria Borger agreed. “I do think Avenatti overplayed his hand, and we’re going to see this continue to spill out,” she added.
