Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti Arrested For Fraud And Nike Extortion Scheme

Michael Avenatti is having a very very bad day. He was arrested twice. Yes, twice. He’s charged with embezzlement, IRS fraud, and trying to extort millions from Nike. Wait what? Nike??

Celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested Monday on charges of trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening to reveal claims of misconduct by company employees.

Yes, he really was going to try and extort money from Nike. He even tweeted about it this morning!

Barely 15 minutes after he sent that tweet, he got arrested. So much for his grandstanding. Instead, the press conferences going on in New York and California are about all the charges against him.

Back to the Nike extortion for a minute.

Folks, he started the Nike extortion scheme barely a week ago! Nike was smart and immediately ran to the authorities to get help catching him in the act. And sure enough, with recordings of calls and filming face-to-face meetings, they did.

Whomever Avenatti’s client was that wanted Nike to pony up around $25 million to make them go away has to be running scared right about now. Then again, if you are stupid enough to hire the creepy porn lawyer…

As for the second arrest, California wants to have a word with Avenatti, as does the IRS.

In the Los Angeles federal case, Avenatti is accused in a 197-page complaint of negotiating a $1.6 million settlement for a client in a civil case, but then giving the client “a bogus settlement agreement with a false payment date of March 10, 2018,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.

That office said “Avenatti misappropriated his client’s settlement money and used it to pay expenses for his coffee business, Global Baristas US LLC, which operated Tully’s Coffee stores in California and Washington state, as well as for his own expenses.”

“When the fake March 2018 deadline passed and the client asked where the money was, Avenatti continued to conceal that the payment had already been received, court documents said,” according to prosecutors.

“A lawyer has a basic duty not to steal from his client,” said U.S. Attorney for Los Angeles Nick Hanna.

“Mr. Avenatti is facing serious criminal charges alleging he misappropriated client trust funds for his personal use and he defrauded a bank by submitting phony tax returns in order to obtain millions of dollars in loans.”

The dude is in serious trouble. There are so many charges against him that he’s facing at least 50 years in prison. He didn’t pay taxes for four years, ginned up phony tax returns to scam money from others, gypped at least one or more of his clients from their money, and still owes the IRS at least $850,000!

You can read both the New York and Los Angeles complaints here.

Two things about this. CNN is on a roll today. First, they have egg all over their faces regarding their Trump Russia Collusion spin for the last two years. Secondly, they have been fangirling all over Avenatti for months or more. In fact, he appeared on CNN and MSNBC 108 times in a two month period! 

So what is CNN doing now? Asking us via Brian Stelter to take a break from watching them.

At least it will give them time to figure out how to spin all this through the rakes smacking them in the face!

One more item regarding Avenatti’s arrest. His Nike extortion co-conspirator has been identified.

No wonder CNN wants us to stop watching! Geragos is a CNN contributor and also was, or still is, Jussie Smollett’s attorney!

Now Michael Avenatti’s chickens are coming home to roost. SAD!
