Stormy Daniels‘ attorney, Michael Avenatti, visited The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and  revealed a major piece of evidence in his client’s claim against President Trump. Avenatti has been on television quite a bit lately, but this is his biggest reveal yet.

The attorney brought a copy of the receipt for the nondisclosure agreement with Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen. “This is the $130,000 receipt, coming from the entity, Essential Consultants, which is the entity that Michael Cohen created and fabricated for the purposes of this payment,” Avenatti said.

He also pointed out that the check was sent from a First Republic Bank branch in San Francisco. That matters, as the bank is under the oversight of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra — who is not a Trump fan.

“This document may in fact give [Becerra] jurisdiction over certain criminal acts associated with this payment,” Avenatti said. In fact, if the attorney general of the state of California were to bring charges, President Trump could not pardon Michael Cohen for those charges.”

And if it doesn’t seem normal for a lawyer to reveal a key piece of evidence on a late night talk show, it isn’t. “This is not your normal case, and it’s not your normal defendant,” Avenatti said. “You’re dealing with a defendant that’s very undisciplined, can be easily baited into making mistakes, and I think we’ve been very, very successful in doing just that. And we’re going to keep doing what we’re doing.”
