Original Article

Posted By: Skinnydip, 7/8/2021 4:29:46 PM

Disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti had a tearful day in court on Monday as he was sentenced to 30 months in prison for attempting to extort footwear giant Nike to the tune of possibly as much as $25 million. Avenatti had previously been in the public light as a lawyer for representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her failed lawsuit against former president Donald Trump. Ironically, Daniels herself is now also claiming that Avenatti defrauded her, and has also had charges brought against him to wit, according to CNBC.


Got off light by a gullible judge.

What did he actually do . . .? I know he was guilty of extortion but based on what? How was he trying to extort Nike? Doesn't say in the article.

Isn't this the guy the marxists we're going to put up as their next big hero a while back? Install him as President or something? I guess with him being too scummy even for the left, they had to fall back to plan Z after the other 25 plans failed and put in Joe. At least he's easy to control since he has no idea what's going on.

By the way, this piece of excrement was Stormy Daniel's lawyer. Didn't he cheat her out of a bunch of money, something on the order of a few hundred thousand $$'s?

This is only one of many crimes. He made up countless lies about a sitting President. He embezzled from several clients, including a severely handicapped man. He bankrupted the Tully's coffee chain, costing hundreds of people their jobs. That's all before defrauding Stormy Daniels.

Extortion is also the crime that Avenatti was helping his client Stormy Daniels perpetrate against Trump. No doubt that Avenatti really got off light, but remember Avenatti is a lawyer and therefore is considered by many to have a license to steal.

The tears were an act. They bought him a 5.5-year drop in the sentence the prosecutors sought for him. Not to worry, he has two more federal cases upcoming. Maybe he'll serve consecutive, not concurrent, sentences for the three cases.

Vice President Kamala Harris has finally announced her intentions to visit the US-Mexico border after former President Trump made his plans to tour the border with Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Harris will be in El Paso, Texas, on Friday, June 25. She will be attended by Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, according to Politico. While countless media outlets and 56 GOP lawmakers have chastised Harris for not going to the border, despite being tasked with dealing with the border and immigration crisis by her boss President Joe Biden, it appears to have taken Trump's announcement to light a fire until the VP.

The new guidelines discard the 14-day limit on human embryo experiments in favor of no limits whatsoever, and they allow virtually unrestricted manufacture of human-animal chimeras of any type, as well as creation of genetically altered human embryos and lab constructed human embryo “models.” Very little is left in the category of “currently not permitted.”
