Let me give you a flashback of what this creepy porn lawyer, Michael Avenatti tried to sue President Trump way back in November 2018.
On contrary, Stormy Daniels announced that Avenatti sued President Trump for defamation without her approval and launching a second fundraising campaign to raise money “without my permission or even my knowledge … and attributing words to me that I never wrote or said.”
Daniels said in a statement:
“For months I’ve asked Michael Avenatti to give me accounting information about the fund my supporters so generously donated to for my safety and legal defense. He has repeatedly ignored those requests. Days ago I demanded again, repeatedly, that he tell me how the money was being spent and how much was left.”
And now, Stormy Daniels breaks her silence and everyone’s questions. According to her, the creepy porn lawyer was just using her to catapult himself into the spotlight, without any regard for her feelings or even the money that was raised on her behalf, as sort of a payout from strangers to thank her for trying to make Donald Trump look bad to his supporters.
After acting as his own defense today, Michael Avenatti was found guilty of wire fraud and identity theft.
The jury reached a verdict Friday afternoon to find Avenatti guilty on both counts of wire fraud and aggravated identity theft for ripping off his porn star client, Stormy Daniels. He now faces up to 22 years in prison.
DailyMail has more of the details:
Avenatti sat holding his hands together and staring ahead as the jury read out their verdict. Afterward one of the lawyers who he ditched to represent himself – they continued to advise him during the case – patted him on the back.
A grim-faced Michael Avenatti said after the verdict, ‘I’m very disappointed in the jury’s verdict. I am looking forward to full adjudication of all the issues on appeal.’
Asked if regretted representing himself, Avenatti snapped, ‘No not at all.’
During the two-week trial, prosecutors said the California lawyer cheated Daniels out of nearly $300,000 she was owed for her autobiography, spending it on his firm’s payroll and personal expenses.
Avenatti argued that he was owed the money and never thought it was wrong to take it.
