................................Michael Avenatti Was Just Found Guilty On All Charges
.....................................In His Nike Extortion Trial


..........................................


Source: Business Insider
◆ The celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti was convicted by a Manhattan jury on Friday of all three charges concerning his attempts to extort up to $US25 million from Nike.

◆ Avenatti was jailed last month following accusations that he committed additional financial crimes while out on bail.

◆ The 48-year-old litigator made headlines two years ago when he began working with Stormy Daniels.
Avenatti is set to be tried in two other criminal cases in federal court on charges that he defrauded multiple clients and stole millions of dollars.


The disgraced attorney was accused of threatening to expose allegations that amateur basketball players were engaged in bribery unless the company paid him off. He was charged with honest services wire fraud, attempted extortion, and transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort.

Avenatti, who was made famous by his representation of the porn star and director Stormy Daniels, was jailed last month following accusations that he committed more financial crimes while out on bail.

Avenatti is set to be tried in two other criminal cases in federal court on charges that he defrauded multiple clients and stole millions of dollars. In one case, he’s been charged with taking over $US295,000 from Daniels’ book advance and using the money for personal expenses.

The 48-year-old litigator made national headlines two years ago when he began representing Daniels, who says she had an affair with President Donald Trump in 2006.

Days before the 2016 US election, Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen arranged a $US130,000 payment to Daniels to keep her silent about her allegations of an affair. Avenatti later sued the president on Daniels’ behalf, accusing Trump of invalidating a nondisclosure agreement and of defaming Daniels.

What I take from this is that it is unwise to try to extort the Nike Corporation.

The President has been "messed with" for 3 years straight without a break. Avenatti would have been fine if he hadn't let his 15 minutes of fame and his greed go to his head and try to extort the Nike Corp.

The guy is a disgrace to the legal profession and a complete piece of ....

You can say “piece of shit” here Set. I prefer that to coyness or circumlocutions.

You can criticize him all you want when he says and does stupid things. Hell, even I think he's said stupid things.

I'm talking about more serious things like the Russia collusion hoax and a purely politically-inspired impeachment. And who has suffered any consequences for this at Trump's hand? The only ones I can think of are the #1 and #2 at the FBI who got fired, and rightfully so. But "fired" isn't "going to prison."

Avenatti represented Stormy Daniels. He should have enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame and maybe capitalized on it legally. But ...

Avenatti is going to prison for trying to extort Nike out of $25 million.

like the Russia collusion hoa
but there was no hoax. Why didn't trump release the full report instead of just his edited version?

bullshit. Even a rethuglican voted for impeachment. The evidence was clear, even discounting the evidence they refused to allow. The problem with trump fans is that no matter what he says or does, they'll find and excuse for him ...

even trump said it
"You know what else they say about my people? The polls, they say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that? Where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like incredible," Trump said.

Wonder woman
I don't know who Avenatti is.. but from info supplied it seems he opposed Trump.

Oh dearie me.

Bad sign.

The hoax was bought and paid for by the Clinton campaign and then politically motivated FBI agents lied to the FISA court to get warrants.

And 3 House Democrats voted against impeachment. The one Republican who voted for impeachment has a personal grudge against Trump. He wanted a job in the administration, and Trump didn't give it to him. The truth is that the Democratic House would have NEVER impeached Hillary Clinton for exactly the same thing, and so this was purely political.

And in their hateful zeal, they destroyed the reputation of Joe Biden who was their leading candidate for president and who is now tanking in the primaries and in the polls.

I'm calling bullshit on that ...I can make the same argument and say that the three democrats who voted against impeachment wanted to curry favour with trump because they're after federal funding

take the politics out of it, look at the evidence presented without the 'conspiracy blinkers on' and there is no doubt of his guilt.

Keep in mind, whilst i don't like trump and admit that i use that for my own entertainment, i don't particularly care who you guys vote for. I have no preference of democrat over republican or vice versa, ... up until trump decided to run, i had zero interest in US politics apart from when Australia got dragged behind the US into wars we didn't need to be in.... and didn't even know which of your two parties was left and which was on the right. In the couple of years since i have taken an interest, trump has failed every decent standard i use to judge people, and my standards for leaders are far higher than those i set for people in general. ... he hasn't passed on a single criteria for decency. If that's who you want for president, fine ... it's certainly no skin off my nose .. i just ask you take the blinkers off and look at the evidence on it's own merit, without the background of democrat v's republican. And without the spin put on by trumps supporters or fox.

Agree. Watching the News, every now and then I gasp at something Trump has/has not done.
Every day a new possibility for outright outrage, tinged with a good old laugh, at the idiocy of it all... presents itself.
