USA Today: Stormy Daniels’ lawyer: Trump attorney Michael Cohen got $500K from Russian-linked firm
Englander Knabe & Allen partner Eric Rose was quoted in a USA Today article entitled, “Stormy Daniels’ lawyer: Trump attorney Michael Cohen got $500K from Russian-linked firm”:
Broidy has previously acknowledged that Cohen helped arrange payments totaling $1.6 million to a Playboy model who said Brody had impregnated her.
In a statement Tuesday night, Broidy spokesman Eric Rose said the payments included in the Avenatti document represent a common way to handle a settlement agreement and don’t amount to “nefarious” activity.
“As is typical in legal settlements, a client often pays money to a lawyer’s client trust account and the lawyer then forwards the funds,” Rose said. “This is common practice. It is disappointing that Michael Avenatti is attempting to make legitimate transactions look nefarious by releasing a document with no context.”
