The Manhattan US Attorney's office said Monday that it is charging attorney Michael Avenatti "for attempting to extract more than $20 million in payments from a publicly traded company by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict substantial financial and reputational harm on the company if his demands were not met."

Avenatti tweeted an hour ago:
"Tmrw at 11 am ET, we will be holding a press conference to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered. This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball."


(and of course in Trump world, this will exonerate Trump in regards to Stormy Daniels)

What's there to exonerate him over?

Also NCAA should be abolished and most of its senior officials jailed alongside college administrators.

Presumably companies like Nike, too, are worthy of annihilation as well.

College sports are cancer.

well he committed a felony in the pay-off... plus cheated on his wife

but we'll see how it plays out as to what they decide it absolves him over

Trump also hates Nike for the Kaepernick ad, so a double win for Trump

all this good news for Trump while Netanyahu is in town... maybe he's the devil and not Kushner...

in addition to extortion:

Avenatti is charged separately in Los Angeles, on allegations “he embezzled a client’s money in order to pay his own expenses and debts — as well as those of his coffee business & law firm — and also defrauded a bank by using phony tax returns to obtain millions of dollars.”

Breaking: Avenatti asks Trump for a pardon.

Cohen seems preferable as he commits crimes to protect you, Avenatti only criming for himself

some details on the LA charges appear to be that a client of his won money & Avenatti received it & used it for himself, not telling client he had it yet

and the bank fraud will be the same that Trump does in lying about size of personal wealth to get loans

Well, Avenatti hasn't ratted out his clients yet so ...

To be fair, Cohen only rolled on Trump after gangster Mueller started threatening his wife. Many men would probably make up lies about the president to save their family.

No someone else committed a felony.

"and the bank fraud will be the same that Trump does in lying about size of personal wealth to get loans"

Again wrong. Avenatti provided fake tax returns to secure the loans. President Trump hasn't provided tax returns for anything at all that we know of.

i don't think Geragos is charged w/ anything at the moment, just has been noted as a co-conspirator in the extortion case

perhaps he was smart enough to stay within the law on his actions

I don't know much about Geragos but I doubt he's any sort of SJW hero. Looking at his bio, he's just a shameless media whore and opportunist.
