Following the lead of Stormy Daniels, several other women are mulling legal action against President Trump, according to the porn star’s attorney.
Michael Avenatti, who represents Daniels, confirmed to BuzzFeed News that multiple women have contacted him about potential lawsuits.
He did not identify any of the women, disclose the nature of their allegations or specify how many have approached him.
At least 15 women have lodged a wide array of accusations against the president, running the gamut from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women.
Of the women, 13 have said Trump attacked them and two others said they had witnessed behavior that made them uncomfortable.
All the alleged incidents took place before he became president and he has vehemently denied all the allegations.
It was unclear if any of the women from that group are among those who Avenatti said reached out to him for legal representation.
Last week, Avenatti filed a lawsuit on Daniels’ behalf to tear up a nondisclosure agreement she signed with Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen.
The X-rated queen — whose real name is Stephanie Clifford — says the agreement was designed to keep her mum about an alleged affair she had with Trump in 2006.
Cohen admitted he had paid Daniels $130,000 of his own money, using a home equity account, as part of the deal just before the 2016 election. Her complaint argues the deal is invalid because Trump did not sign it.
Daniels has offered to pay back the money — but only if she’s allowed to speak freely and only if Trump signs a new agreement on the deal.
But Avenatti told CNN that the deadline for that offer has passed with no response from either Cohen or the president.
Meanwhile, Trump’s lawyers also are considering legal action to stop “60 Minutes” from airing an upcoming interview with Daniels.
