As the world awaits Stormy Daniels' impending 60 Minutes interview, her lawyer Michael Avenatti just appeared on MSNBC and CNN to talk more about her case. According to USA Today, Avenatti told both anchors on both networks his client had been physically threatened by the Trump team.

"The fact is that my client was physically threatened to stay silent about what she knew about Donald Trump," he told Chris Cuomo, adding Stormy plans to "provide very specific details about what happened here" in her 60 Minutes segment. He did not specify any further.

When Mika Brzezinski asked him to confirm if Stormy had been "threatened in any way," he replied "yes." She followed up: "Was she threatened physical harm?" His response: "Yes."

Her interview is tentatively scheduled to air on CBS on March 25.
