Stormy Daniels’ attacker looks a lot like…. The Mooch?
Daniels claims she had an affair with President Trump over a decade ago and was paid hush money by the president. She showed the sketch on ABC’s 'The View' on Tuesday, and said she had been threatened after she agreed to sell her story of the affair to a magazine in 2011.
The man is described as being between 5’9 and 6’ tall, in his late 30s or early 40s, and having a “lean but fit,” body type. Daniels announced a $100,000 dollar reward for anyone who can help identify the man.

Straight away, Twitter users began noting that the man looked a little too familiar. One user tweeted a picture of the alleged attacker next to former White House communications director Anthony ‘The Mooch’ Scaramucci, saying, “Mooch better have an alibi…”
The Mooch took the joke in his stride, saying “I thought the description said he was 6’ 2”! I am all good.” The pint-sized Scaramucci, whose tenure as communications director lasted just ten days, is said to be 5’8” tall.

In an interview with Anderson Cooper on CBS’ 60 Minutes in March, Daniels said the mystery figure approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot as she was getting ready to go to a fitness class with her infant daughter.
"A guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,'" she told Cooper. "And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, 'That’s a beautiful little girl. It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom.' And then he was gone."
While the man’s identity is a mystery, he resembles more celebrities than just the Mooch. NFL quarterback Tom Brady, a young Arnold Schwarzenegger, and even Daniels’ ex-husband Glendon Crain are all dead ringers for the alleged attacker.

Daniels has been locked into a legal battle with Trump since she filed a lawsuit against the president in March. The lawsuit claims that the nondisclosure agreement she had signed regarding the alleged affair was invalid because Trump had never personally signed it. The suit also alleges that Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, had been trying to intimidate Daniels into silence.
Last week, FBI agents raided Cohen’s office and seized the lawyer’s private communications, prompting Trump to declare that attorney-client privilege “is now a thing of the past.”
Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past. I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken. All lawyers are deflated and concerned!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 15, 2018
