2. There are answers to that question which are not popular


I'd guess the overwhelming majority don't know what the Cohen proceeding is actually about, when the investigation of Cohen started, what triggered it, etc.. Legal stuff bores people, and they probably think that the Cohen warrant case has some sort of relevance to the hush agreement litigation. As far as the hush agreement litigation is concerned, neither party disputes that Daniels was paid, so where and how he got the money isn't relevant to the contract claim.

What's interesting is that I had thought initially that Avenatti wanted a finger in this proceeding because Cohen might otherwise not produce records indicating that Cohen and Davidson were collusively "negotiating", but I have the feeling that Davidson has been given a good shaking down already.

The spectacle of him and Daniels running around the courthouse for no particular reason made for good TV though.

The letter is interesting for the reason that it suggest that Avenatti's interest may be in keeping a lid on certain information that Cohen might possess - which would be kind of a new thing.

It's sort of like Gloria Allred - having had zip to do with the prosecution of Bill Cosby - showing up for a microphone bouquet interview upon his conviction. It was something of a kick in the teeth to the prosecution team that had actually obtained the conviction, but nobody gives a shit who they were.
