"As a legal matter, he may be right that he signed a contract, that he's only allowed to release it for X, Y and Z reasons", Abrams said.
The statement said that claims that Burnett had threatened legal action against anyone who released footage were "completely and unequivocally false".
Days after a video clip was released of Mr Trump seemingly boasting about making lewd advances at women, a former producer on the U.S. television series claimed there were "far worse" tapes of the Republican presidential candidate.
Turns out, Burnett, creator of "The Apprentice", and MGM, which owns the rights to "The Apprentice" and "Celebrity Apprentice", will not be releasing any footage.
Since the tape of Donald Trump saying a number of inappropriate things about women into a hot mic on the set of "Access Hollywood" in 2005 leaked to the public last week, there's been talk of more tapes being out there from his time on reality show "The Apprentice".
Mr Burnett also said he had "consistently supported Democratic campaigns".
The Sunlight Trump Campaign is they're now gathering funds to reach their $5 million goal and hoping to capitalize on rumors that a tape exists of Mr Trump using the "n-word" during his 11-years with the reality television show. Their report also shows that Burnett has instituted a $5 million fee for releasing any of that raw footage.
On the tape, Mr Trump, who was preparing for an appearance on the Days Of Our Lives show, said: "I am automatically attracted to beautiful women".
CNN's Brian Stelter reported that the peacock network's president, Deborah Turness, emailed at least seven producers on Monday and "launched a hunt for "Apprentice" transcripts, even down to loggers of the tape".
"Grab them by the p***y".
(Nee later wrote she had only "heard rumors" of the videos.) That's when Buzzfeed came in with its claim that Apprentice producer Burnett controls the footage and has threatened to sue any employee who leaks footage to the media. In 2008, Burnett donated to Barack Obama's campaign but has not donated to Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump's campaign this election year.
