MIchael Avenatti predicted Thursday that President Donald Trump will not serve out his full term in office, citing his knowledge of the president's attorney MIchael Cohen.

Avenatti, the lawyer for Stephanie Clifford, a porn actor and director better known as Stormy Daniels, made the claims on MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace's show "Deadline White House." Avenatti has been pushing a lawsuit against Cohen, who paid Clifford $130,000 to stay quiet about an affair she says she had with the president in 2006. 

Cohen's office was also raided by federal investigators last week.

"Three weeks ago, I said that ultimately [Cohen] was going to be indicted, he was going to flip on the president," Avenatti said. "And now, people that are close to the president are telling him the same thing."

He continued: "There's no question that Michael Cohen knows where many, many bodies are buried. They're going to turn him. and when they turn him, the president is going to be in a very, very bad place. And I'm going to make a prediction now: I do not think the president will serve out his turn. I just don't."
