Up early Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump appeared angry about Stormy Daniels’ decision to release a forensic sketch of a man she says threatened her in 2011 to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump.

In a tweet published shortly after 6 a.m. ET, Trump said that the sketch depicted a “nonexistent man” and declared that the released of the sketch was a “con job.” Trump retweeted a tweet suggesting that the man in the sketch is Daniels’ ex-boyfriend Glendon Crain based on a photo.

Shortly after Trump tweeted that Daniels was attempting to pull off a “con job,” her lawyer, Michael Avenatti fired off several tweets hitting back at Trump. Avenatti argued that the real “con job” was orchestrated by Trump and his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen, who is under federal criminal investigation. He also mocked Trump for constantly weighing in on the matter and suggested Trump’s tweets could create problems for him.

Daniels told CBS’ “60 Minutes” last month that she was approached by a man who threatened her to stay quiet about her affair with Trump back in 2011 after she gave an interview on her encounter with Trump. Daniels revealed a composite sketch of the man who allegedly threatened her, offering a reward for anyone who could help identify him.
