    Michael Avenatti: The Russians Are Trying to Run a Smear Job on Me

    “They were trying to claim that I too had taken a trip to Moscow,” Avenatti said. “I’ve never been to Moscow in my life, I’ve never traveled to Russia in my life.”


    “They suggested that I had had a liaison with multiple women in Russia,” he added. “I found that to be rather ironic.”

    {snip}


    Avenatti said Russians have also been saying he previously represented Russian and Ukrainian legal interests before the U.S. government. He said he has never represented any Russian or Ukrainian entities.


    “I think I’ve been nervous for the entirety of the case,” he said. “Certainly this raises the stakes. But we’re not going to pack up and go home. I’m not going to change what I’m doing just because the Russians don’t like it.”
    He should probably just be glad they are planting stories, as opposed to attempting to take him out.

    At this point, he's more likely to break the whole thing wide open than Mueller. Not slamming Mueller, it takes time to be incredibly methodical. But time is the one thing we don't have.

    The Russians are probably worried that if critical American politicians start falling out of windows or being mysteriously poisoned, as so many other Putin critics have had happen, that may actually be a bridge too far for the GOP. I'm not convinced they're right to be worried -- I suspect that as long as Putin stuck to assassinating Americans that Trump and the leading Republicans don't like, the GOP would run cover for them. But, for now, they're worried enough that they're sticking with smears instead of hits.
