Stormy Daniels and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, on Tuesday shared a forensic sketch of the man they say threatened Daniels in 2011 over her alleged affair with President Trump. Later that day, Avenatti upped the ante for anyone who can identify the man. In a CNN interview, Avenatti said the reward for that information will not be $100,000 but $131,000—that figure being $1,000 more than what Daniels received from lawyer Michael Cohen after she signed a non-disclosure agreement.

Avenatti says "we have a lot of leads, we've narrowed the field to a handful of people," but that they want to be sure before they make a public accusation. Trump, for his part, thinks the man is Mr. Nobody. He tweeted Wednesday morning, "A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!" (Read more about the famed forensic artist behind the sketch here.)
