CNN’s sustained effort to destroy Donald Trump continues to backfire.
And things just took a turn for the worse.
That’s because one CNN star in hot water after being arrested in this shocking charge.
Prosecutors in New York indicted celebrity lawyer and frequent CNN guest Michael Avenatti on charges he stole Stormy Daniels’ identity in order to defraud her out of her book advance.
This follows a series of indictments against Avenatti in New York and Los Angeles for trying to extort Nike, in addition to bank fraud, wire fraud, and other serious allegations.
Disgraced television lawyer Michael Avenatti was charged Wednesday for defrauding his former client, pornographic actress Stormy Daniels.
Federal prosecutors in New York City said Avenatti used a doctored document to divert about $300,000 that Daniels was supposed to get from a book deal, then used the money for personal and business expenses. Only half of that money was paid back, according to prosecutors. While Daniels isn’t named in the court filing, the details of the case make it clear that she is the client involved in the case.
Shortly after the charges were announced, Avenatti took to social media to deny any wrongdoing.
“No monies relating to Ms. Daniels were ever misappropriated or mishandled. She received millions of dollars worth of legal services and we spent huge sums in expenses. She directly paid only $100.00 for all that she received. I look forward to a jury hearing the evidence,” he tweeted. He has since locked his Twitter account.
In 2018, left-wing cable networks virtually turned over their programming to Avenatti.
Avenatti appeared so many times on CNN and MSNBC, the total value of the airtime for his interviews was $175 million dollars.
This obscene amount of free advertising actually had fake news “reporters” like CNN’s paid liar Brian Stelter claiming Avenatti was a serious 2020 contender.
But that is all out the window now.
And Avenatti will be lucky not to spend decades behind bars.
