Michael Avenatti Tag

Michael Avenatti, the Stormy Daniels lawyer, held up as a hero by the media under Trump, is now facing real prison time following his conviction for extorting Nike. Prosecutors are asking for a 'substantial' sentence in the case. Let us never forget that this guy was seriously considered a contender for the Democratic nomination at one point.

Federal agents arrested Michael Avenatti on Tuesday evening or violating the terms of his release:
The arrest occurred outside the disciplinary hearing in which the State Bar of California has accused the hard-charging, tough-talking attorney of using a doctored document to scam a client out of nearly $840,000, funneling money from a lawsuit settlement fund to his own personal use.

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.

A federal grand jury in Los Angeles indicted celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti with 36 counts that include "fraud, perjury, failure to pay taxes, embezzlement and other financial crimes." The DOJ wrote in its press release that Avenatti faces 10 counts of wire fraud, 19 tax-related charges, two counts of bank fraud, and four bankruptcy fraud charges, and embezzlement charges.
