Mr Cohen, whose records relating to the settlement were seized in an FBI raid last month, is now reportedly under criminal investigation. "I said I believe, but don't know for sure, that it's probably after the convention". But he said it appears there is paperwork that he expects will show Trump, through his personal attorney Michael Cohen, paid off the women.
The White House did not respond to requests for comment to clarify the reason for Mr Trump's payment to Mr Cohen.
Avenatti's constant appearances on cable television have earned him the moniker of being a thorn in President Donald Trump's side, as he has brought Daniels' lawsuit against Trump and his attorney Michael Cohen into the public square.
President Donald Trump acknowledged for the first time that he repaid his lawyer Michael Cohen more than $100,000 for expenses Cohen incurred during the 2016 presidential election, according to a financial disclosure form released Wednesday.

In fact, Sater tells BuzzFeed that he and Cohen were still planning on travelling to Moscow even after Trump had secured the Republican nomination for the presidency - and that they had wanted Trump himself to travel to the country to work out a deal during the campaign.
CREW, a liberal-leaning watchdog group, filed a complaint with the ethics office that was referenced in Mr Apol's letter.
Cohen ultimately said any travel to Russian Federation would have to take place after the 2016 Republican convention, which took place in July.
