Stromy Daniels’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, was a guest on today’s edition of Morning Joe, and released a bombshell series of one-word answers in reply to questions from Mika Brzezinski. Th bottom line: his client, adult film actress and producer Stormy Daniels, was physically threatened over a non-disclosure agreement she signed in connection with an alleged (read: pretty damned certain at this point) affair she had with then-TV star Donald Trump.

MIKA: Was she threatened in any way?


MIKA: Was she threatened physical harm?


JOE SCARBOROUGH: Oh wow! Keep going, Mika. Davos — I mean we started this —

MIKA: What do you mean — was her life threatened?

AVENATTI: Again, I’m not going to answer that. People will have to tune into 60 Minutes on March 25th.

MIKA: [talking over JOE]: There’s probably so much more here —

JOE: Well now, so, so, so, ex, what can you tell us about the physical threats.

AVENATTI: I can’t tell you anything beyond what I’ve said, again —

JOE: Can you tell us if it came directly from the president?

AVENATTI: I’m not going to answer that,

JOE: Will you deny that the president of the United States threatened your client?

AVENATTI: I will not confirm or deny.
