Stormy Daniels probably needs a new attorney. (Michael Avenatti arrested. Again.)


It seems that the Southern District of New York is capable of multitasking when it comes to high profile cases. Michael Avenatti has been charged with attempting to extort $25 million from Nike. In a tweet this morning, Avenatti said
Quote:
Tmrw at 11 am ET, we will be holding a press conference to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered. This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball.
(twitter sic) He was arrested 2 hours after his tweet.

The Central District of California is also pursuing unrelated wire fraud allegations.

He's had other run-ins with the law but got out of a domestic abuse charge in LA.

I'm no lawyer but I think he's going to need a good one. He should consider Rudy Giuliani. He should have a little more free time now and he has experience dealing with the SDNY.

This will be at least as much fun as Jeff Bezos v. National Enquirer!

That leaves me a little unclear on one point. Was Mr. Avenatti fucking around with this, or not?

I thought it was his client, Ms Daniels, who held guys' balls in her hand?

He's released another tweet storm implicating Nike. If nothing else, the guy's got balls of steel.

Stormy Daniels fired Michael Avenatti a while ago, actually.

Like so many other things in her life, when it came to picking an attorney, Sweet Miz Stormy blew it.

Is he still a popular dark horse for president? These stickers seem a little out of date.

Perhaps Avenatti ran for President because he knew that was the only thing which could prevent him from being indicted?
