Just a few months ago, people on CNN and MSNBC were calling Michael Avenatti a contender for 2020. His legal troubles have put an end to that, but Avenatti still wants to be involved so he endorsed Joe Biden. What a great win for Joe.

Joe Biden endorsed by Michael Avenatti after launching 2020 bid: ‘He has my enthusiastic support’

Joe Biden has already picked up a big-name endorsement — but it might not be one he is happy to receive.

The former vice president, who formally announced his 2020 bid on Thursday morning, can count on the support of disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti.

“I am extremely happy that @JoeBiden has decided to enter the race. He offers Dems the very best chance in 2020, especially in key states. He has the fight, intelligence and fortitude to beat Trump and begin to make America, America again. He has my enthusiastic support,” Avenatti tweeted.

Earlier this month, Avenatti, the former Stormy Daniels attorney and once-rumored 2020 presidential candidate, was slapped with three dozen new federal charges alleging he stole millions of dollars from his clients, failed to pay taxes and lied in bankruptcy cases, amongst other accusations.

Maybe Avenatti is hoping Biden will win and pardon him. His future isn’t looking very bright.

Michael Avenatti Faces 36 New Counts and Up to 335 Years in Prison

In the continuing saga of Michael Avenatti’s fall from grace, a federal grand jury has indicted the Newport Beach attorney on 36 counts of fraud, perjury, failure to pay taxes, embezzlement, and other financial crimes.

The Santa Ana grand jury outlined serial abuses of power, alleging that Avenatti stole millions of dollars from five of his own clients. Perhaps the most striking detail of all, however, is the potential consequence for his alleged crimes: 335 years in prison, if convicted on all counts.

“For 20 years, I have represented Davids vs. Goliaths,” the self-described “Fighter for Good” tweeted in response to the new charges. “Along the way, I have made many powerful enemies. I am entitled to a FULL presumption of innocence and am confident that justice will be done once ALL of the facts are known.”

Funny, I don’t remember him talking about the presumption of innocence for Brett Kavanaugh last year.
