Avenatti Indicted, Accused Of Stealing Stormy’s Money

Oh, if only there had been some indication that Michael Avenatti wasn’t a total scumbag, then maybe many in the media wouldn’t be washing egg off their faces today.

I mean, there were red flags all over that Avenatti was a jerk; the media ignored them all because ORANGE MAN BAD!

Michael Avenatti, darling of The Resistance, once touted as a presidential candidate, lawyer for a porn star – was indicted today for stealing money from his most famous client.

This is on top of the other legal trouble that Avenatti is in. The guy has written checks that his mouth can’t cash, and the dam has broken. This time, Avenatti tried to walk away with Stormy Daniels’s money.

Federal prosecutors in New York City say Avenatti used a doctored document to divert about $300,000 that Daniels was supposed to get from a book deal, then used the money for personal and business expenses. Only half of that money was paid back, prosecutors said.”

Daniels isn’t named in the court filing, but the details of the case, including the date her book was released, make it clear that she is the client involved.”

Avenatti denied the allegations on Twitter.”

“No monies relating to Ms. Daniels were ever misappropriated or mishandled. She received millions of dollars worth of legal services and we spent huge sums in expenses. She directly paid only $100.00 for all that she received. I look forward to a jury hearing the evidence,” he wrote.”

Avenatti added in a later tweet that his agreement for representing Daniels “included a percentage of any book proceeds.”

The charges pile on top of previous allegations of legal misconduct by Avenatti, who represented Daniels when she sued to be released from a nondisclosure agreement involving an alleged tryst with Trump. The president denies an affair took place.”

Avenatti was previously charged in New York with trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening to expose claims that the shoemaker paid off high school basketball players to steer them to Nike-sponsored colleges. And in Los Angeles, he’s facing a multicount federal indictment alleging that he stole millions of dollars from clients, didn’t pay taxes, committed bank fraud and lied during bankruptcy proceedings.”

Avenatti has denied the allegations against him on both coasts, saying he expects to be exonerated. The Los Angeles charges alone carry a potential penalty of more than 300 years in prison.”

“I look forward to a jury hearing all of the evidence and passing judgment on my conduct,” Avenatti wrote in a text message to The Associated Press.”

The indictment calls it “aggravated identity theft,” because Avenatti was allegedly forging documents in order to take the money for himself. On his Twitter account, the creepy porn lawyer declared his innocence (his Tweets are now protected, but screenshots can be seen here) and his eagerness to defend himself in court.

I’m guessing that he will be representing himself, given that he’s broke and facing multiple indictments – proving yet again the adage that “he who represents himself has a fool for a client.”

It couldn’t be happening to a nicer guy.
