Michael Avenatti is a scum-sucking bottom feeder who thought he deserved a higher perch in life.
And when he spotted Stormy Daniels, he actually thought the porn star was his ticket to the big time.
Little did Avenatti know, he never stood a chance against Donald Trump. In fact, he never stood a chance, period. He should’ve taken a step back and noticed the writing on the wall. Trump is a billionaire. He can afford any prostitute, playboy bunny, or porn star his heart desires. Plus, he’s got a beautiful model for a wife. So why would Trump need someone like Stormy Daniels to keep him company?
After Daniels failed to put Avenatti on top, his schemes continued. As Kevin Jackson wrote in 2020,
When you can’t get Trump, you go after the people he cares about. So Avenatti went after Brett Kavanaugh. Actually, Avenatti took advantage of the old Leftist proverb: let no crisis go to waste. Thus, he jumped on the Democrats attempted lynching of Kavanaugh.
Again, and perhaps more surprisingly, Avenatti again chose another skank. This one was Julie Swetnick, the woman who went on dates to, count them, ten gangbangs.
But you can bet Avenatti didn’t stop there.
After that, Avenatti tried to extort Nike. Another epic fail. Then, he was ordered to pay his former law partner almost $5 million to make good on a debt he owed. Still, Democrats suggested Avenatti had a presidential run in his future. The left just doesn’t seem to understand when it’s time to cut someone loose.
To be honest, Democrats didn’t know their asses from their ankles- and when they settled on Joe Biden, that wasn’t much of a step-up. But Avenatti seems to still be stuck in the same cycle.
It goes like this. There’s a bad story, featuring Avenatti. And it gets published. Then, Avenatti swears the story isn’t true, after which tons of evidence appears. Lather, rinse, repeat. Turns out, there’s another step in the Avenatti cycle- pocket the money. And that’s what he did, time after time.
Now, Avenatti is forced into another repayment situation he hoped would never catch up to him.
Just the News reported,
A federal jury on Friday convicted attorney Michael Avenatti of cheating former client and adult-entertainment actress Stormy Daniels out of money from a tell-all book deal about former President Trump.
Avenatti, 50, was found guilty in a federal court in Manhattan of wire fraud and aggravated identity theft for pocketing $300,000 of Daniels’ $800,000 advance for her explosive 2018 memoir, “Full Disclosure.”
In the book, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had an affair with Trump before he was president.
Prosecutors portrayed Avenatti as a thief and a liar throughout the trial.
“The defendant was a lawyer who stole from his own client,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Sobelman. “She thought he was her advocate, but he betrayed her and told lies to try to cover it all up. All to steal and spend money that was not his. The defendant is guilty.”
Avenatti had pleaded not guilty and argued the evidence against him was weak. He faces a maximum of 22 years in prison for the conviction.
In one of the trial’s strangest moments, Avenatti, having been abandoned by his legal team, questioned Daniels.
Friday’s verdict is the latest blow to an attorney who was once one of Trump’s best known critics and frequently appeared on television.
But in 2020, Avenatti was convicted for trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike, the sports apparel giant. Last year, a federal judge sentenced Avenatti to 2 ½ years in prison for the extortion case. He is due to report to prison for that conviction later this year.
Avenatti is also awaiting a retrial in California on charges that he ripped off other clients for millions of dollars. Last year, the case resulted in a mistrial.
