Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels, just dropped a Mother's Day surprise that should worry President Donald Trump and his former attorney, Michael Cohen.
In a message posted to Twitter on Sunday, Avenatti said that his warnings earlier this week for those who have had dealings with Cohen to come clean have been ignored
So Avenatti decide it was time up the ante.
The tweet included three photos of Michael Cohen in Trump Tower with multiple people, including disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
The significance of the photos was not immediately clear, but Avenatti promised that additional details would follow.
Warning ignored. So here it goes.

UPDATE: Mother Jones is tentatively identifying one of the people pictures with Cohen as Ahmed al-Rumaihi, the former Qatari diplomat who has been accused in a recent lawsuit of colluding to bribe Trump administration officials.
Ice Cube, the rapper and actor, and his business partner Jeff Kwatinetz recently filed a $1.2 billion lawsuit that includes an allegation that Al-Rumaihi and other Qatari officials attempted use an investment in the men’s BIG3 basketball league to gain access to Trump administration officials. “Mr Al-Rumaihi requested I set up a meeting between him, the Qatari government, and Stephen Bannon, and to tell Steve Bannon that Qatar would underwrite all of his political efforts in return for his support,” Kwatinetz said in the court filing. Kwatinetz says he rejected the offer, which he viewed as bribe.
In response, Kwatinetz claims, “Al-Rumaihi laughed and then stated to me that I shouldn’t be naive, that so many Washington politicians take our money, and stated ‘do you think Flynn turned down our money?’”
