2020 Democrat potential candidate arrested for extortion

Ahhh, the good ol days when the left admired a porn star's attention whoring attorney

Stormy Daniels' ex-lawyer Michael Avenatti arrested for alleged $20 million extortion scheme against Nike, embezzling client's money, defrauding bank

Celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested Monday on charges that he tried to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening to hurt that athletic apparel giant financially with negative publicity.

Avenatti also is charged in a separate federal case out of Los Angeles, where he is accused of embezzling a client's money "in order to pay his own expense and debts," and of "defrauding a bank in Mississippi," prosecutors said.

Avenatti had represented porn star Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against President Donald Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen related to a non-disclosure agreement she signed on the eve of the 2016 presidential election to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump in exchange for a $130,000 payment. Daniels replaced Avenatti as her lawyer earlier this month.

Daniels, in a statement released by her new lawyer Clark Brewster, told CNBC that, "Knowing what I know now about Michael, I'm saddened but not shocked regarding his arrest."

"I made the decision weeks ago to terminate Michael's services after discovering that he had dealt with me extremely dishonestly, and I will have my own announcement coming soon," Brewster said.

Avenatti, 48, was busted in Midtown Manhattan at 12:30 p.m. by FBI agents, about 15 minutes after he tweeted that he would be disclosing a big high school and college basketball scandal "perpetrated by" Nike that he supposedly had uncovered.

Avenatti is due to be presented in Manhattan federal court on Monday on charges of conspiracy, extortion and transmitting interstate communications with intent to extort.

A criminal complaint filed in New York against Avenatti says he "devised a scheme to extort a company by means of an interstate communication by threatening to damage the company's reputation if the company did not agree to make multi-million dollar payments to Avenatti and [co-conspirator], and further agree to pay an additional $1.5 million to a client of Avenatti's."

The complaint says that last Wednesday, Avenatti and a cooperating witness spoke by phone with lawyers for Nike "during which Avenatti stated, with respect to his demands for payment of milions of dollars, that if those demands were not met 'I'll go take ten billion dollars off your client's market cap ... I'm not f---ing around.' "

On December 4, 2018, Avenatti announced that he would not be a candidate for President of the United States in 2020. In a Twitter post, he announced "I do not make this decision lightly — I make it out of respect for my family."

Must not have been as widely reported as his announcement of running. Media bias?
Sorry, you assholes tend to blur together sometimes.

Was it DandyDon who actually excitedly said this? :lol:
Maybe Ms. Clifford can help him out?

Between Trump and Avenatti everyone should take a lesson about ones own ego and how it can lead to serious problems.

Avenatti grew up in a St Louis suburb. He's the type where they look successful but are in actuality completely broke and it's all done via debt.

From one of CQ's links:
his pitch that the Democrats needed their own version of Trump undoubtedly seemed to appeal to some voters.
Yeah, maybe not so much.
