Washington D.C. [USA], Sept 17 (ANI): Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing adult star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against United States President Donald Trump, on Sunday expressed his intentions about a possible run for the presidency in the 2020 election, saying he is "very serious" about it.
Citing The Hill, Avenatti told CNN's 'Reliable Sources', "I'm very serious. And I'm getting more serious by the week because I'm travelling around the country and people are encouraging me to do it."
Lashing out at his Democratic critics who say he lacks the experience of holding public office, Avenatti said that he has 20 years of experience as an attorney and has knowledge about the working of government regulations.
"I've got 20 years of experience at a very high level as an attorney. I understand how governmental regulations are passed, how laws are passed, how the Supreme Court works. I have an extreme depth of knowledge," he added.
The 47-year-old attorney has been vying to run for the presidency in the 2020 presidential election since recent months. In July, Avenatti had announced that he would stand in the polls if Trump ran for re-election.
Avenatti made headlines earlier this year for representing Daniels against Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen for the USD 130,000 hush agreement over the alleged affair between the adult star and the US president. (ANI)
