Stormy Daniels Arrested In Ohio Strip Club, Michael Avenatti Says

Attorney Michael Avenatti said Thursday the arrest was politically motivated and "reeks of desperation".

Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who said she had an affair with Donald J. Trump before he became president, was arrested at a strip club in Columbus, Ohio, her lawyer said early Thursday.

Avenatti issued a statement on her behalf saying that as a result, her performance at the jiggle joint Thursday night would be canceled.

Avenatti went on. "This was a complete set up.it's absurd that law enforcement resources are being spent to conduct a sting operation".

"This was a setup & politically motivated".

Daniels, using Avenatti as her lawyer, is suing Trump and Cohen over the alleged non-disclosure agreement, trying to free herself from the deal.

Representatives for the Columbus Division of Police did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment. "There has to be higher priorities!" "We will fight all bogus charges", Avenatti said on Twitter.

A person who answered the phone at Sirens, the strip club where Daniels performed, declined to comment.

Avenatti also took to Twitter to blast the arrest.

She said she signed the agreement just before the 2016 presidential election.

Trump, who was married at the time of the alleged affair, has disputed her claims. He initially said he used his own money to pay Daniels and was not reimbursed by Trump.
