Days before Stormy Daniels is set to appear on CBS' 60 Minutes to discuss her alleged affair with Donald Trump, the adult film star's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, teased Twitter with this very cryptic tweet:
The picture appears to show a CD-rom in an opened safe. In the caption Avenatti writes, "If 'a picture is worth a thousand words,' how many words is this worth????? #60minutes #pleasedenyit #basta"
Wait, CD-rom? Geez, I have seen one of those since like, 2006. Wait. 2006? Isn't that when...OH GOD.
I think I speak for all Americans— republican, democrat or otherwise— when I say OH GOD PLEASE NO SEX TAPE THAT WOULD BE THE MOST PAINFUL 40 SECONDS OF MY LIFE.
Of course, anything could be on this CD— pictures, audio recordings, video... Twitter had some guesses as to what it could be:
One person theorized that this was a tape of her taking a lie detector test in 2011 that determined she was telling the truth about her affair with Trump.
But Avenatti chimed in to confirm that this is not the case:
Days before Donald Trump took office, Daniels signed a nondisclosure agreement and received $130,000 to remain silent about their 2006 alleged affair. Since then, Daniels has claimed that the agreement is invalid because Trump did not sign it.
The White House and Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, deny that the affair ever occurred.
Well, Sunday should definitely be interesting.
What do you think is on the CD?
