Has CNN apologized yet for running with this guy nearly non-stop for weeks? And to think that he was hero to many Dims.


Controversial lawyer Michael Avenatti was indicted Wednesday in separate cases charging him with stealing about $300,000 from his former porn star client Stormy Daniels, and with trying to extort athletic shoe giant Nike out of tens of millions of dollars by threatening to go public with claims the company was facilitating payments to the families of high school basketball stars.
While the Nike-related indictment was expected because it mirrors allegations in a criminal complaint executed against Avenatti in March, the claims related to Daniels were brand new.
Avenatti, who last year was mulling a run for the White House, is now charged in three separate federal indictments, including one pending in California related to alleged theft of client funds and other crimes, and faces the possibility of many years in prison if convicted.
According to one of the new indictments in New York, Avenatti allegedly forged Daniels' signature on a document that gave wire fund transfer information to her literary agent, which helped direct the money paid out for the book sales to a bank account controlled by Avenatti.

Wait... Avenatti screwed Stormy Daniels and threatened people with illegitimate lawsuits?

Great... the GOP is going to want to elect him president.
Haha, I guess the only difference between Trump and Avenatti is Trump is POTUS and Avenatti is going to be someone's bitch.
