Notorious Anti-Trumper Michael Avenatti Gets Prison Time for Extortion
Michael Avenatti, who CNN predicted would be president one day, is heading to prison instead.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
NEW YORK (Reuters) — Michael Avenatti, the brash lawyer who shot to fame representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against Donald Trump before a swirl of criminal charges ended his legal career, was sentenced to 2-1/2 years in prison on Thursday for trying to extort Nike Inc.
U.S. District Judge Paul Gardephe in Manhattan said Avenatti, 50, “had become drunk on the power of his platform” in betraying his client, a youth basketball coach, for his own gain.
“Mr. Avenatti’s conduct was outrageous,” Gardephe said. “He hijacked his client’s claims, and he used those claims to further his own agenda, which was to extort millions of dollars from Nike for himself.”
Avenatti was convicted for threatening to expose Nike’s alleged corrupt payments to families of college basketball prospects unless it forked over up to $25 million for him and another lawyer to conduct an internal probe.
Anvenatti promised to put Trump in jail, but it looks like he ended up there instead.
OH WOW 2 1/2 years why bother at all. he’ll be out in 6 months or less
Maybe he’ll get Bubba as a cell mate . Bubba wants a new wife anyway .
He’ll walk out with hundreds of new clients.
No he won’t because he can’t practice law anymore plus he still has other cases pending against him.
Avenatti should have gotten a lot more time but hopefully with the up coming charges he will. Some good news is this loser can’t practice law anymore.
Mikey, maybe you can get elected to president of your cell block and hold regular remote video interviews with your old CNN buddy, Mr. Potato Head.
Oh, and just remember, don’t drop the soap!
Oh My 😱 But from what I have seen and read of this guy , it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving Sleaze Bag ! 😅
Anti- Trump leader? what was he the leader of ? whom did he lead?, the DNC Mafia squad? Avenatti was just another scamming ambulance chaser, and whorehouse confidant
I heard on my sainted Mother’s knee: a man who will steal a nickel will steal a hundred thousand dollars. Enter a crooked lawyer from NY….
2.5 YEARS????? WHAT THE HELL IS THAT???
A KNUCKLE TAP AND AN EAR PINCH!!
If he gets to mingle with the other “prisoners” (he may in some cushy place like Epstein was), the will be very popular and very sore. In the end.
He needs to be joined by the Extortionists of BLM and ANTIFA!
He’s assigned to a federal prison camp in Sheridan, Oregon. He will probably get to mingle with the other “prisoners” and become very popular. Better punishment than prison camp. Butt you never know.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. One less smart a*s to it up with
Need 10 more years to sentence alone
Meanwhile the govt threatens patriots attempting to petition their govt for a redress of grievances – a Constitutionally guaranteed right – with 20 years in prison for, among other victimless non-crimes, “parading”.
WTF. The federal government is truly the enemy of the people. We need to start shooting these abusive public servants who fancy themselves our masters. Who the hell do they think they are anyway?
Let’s make it our life’s work to execute them so that it serves as a deterrent example to future would-be tyrants that the Rule of Law cannot be abused, there must be proportionality and that distorting the reality of simple and minor events to harass political opponents is an unacceptable offense that will be punished by death!
can you beleave IT 0nly a few months ago our famous news media wanted him to run for PRISIDENT of U S A mite just mull that over , might have ben better deal than what we got
