Daniels told "60 Minutes" that, a few weeks after she agreed to tell the story of her tryst to In Touch magazine, she was in a parking lot with her infant daughter when a man walked up to her and told he to leave Trump alone. The man looked at her daughter and said "it would be a shame if something happened to her mom," then disappeared, Daniels said.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said fear persuaded her to accept a $130,000 payout for her silence from Cohen just 11 days before the 2016 presidential election.
Avenatti, speaking Monday on CNN, was dismissive of the letter, saying "we're just getting started" with their revelations. He also said that "to the best of my knowledge" police were not investigating the alleged threat.
"I think they should, I think it's a serious matter," Avenatti said. "I know we are."
In Touch did not publish their interview with Daniels until the Wall Street Journal broke the news in January of the payment to Daniels.
Blakely did not immediately respond to a request for comment from USA Today.
