      I'm surprised he hasn't been employed by Mueller. I suspect they share the same smell of sulfur.

        I am sure its just a coincidence that they keep getting the wrong Michael Cohen included in things like the Russian - Trump dossier and now this illegal bank record release. It points to a lot of illegal FISA queries being done on Trump connected people even before this BS FBI investigation was started officially and the idiot contractors working with the crooked Obama DOJ didn't even make sure they had the right guy because that other Cohen had the same birth year apparently.

        This guy lowers the esteem of the legal profession and that's not an easy thing to do.

        Porn star lawyer is going up the river. Sic semper wannabe tyrannis.

        Michael Avenatti convicted of trying to extort Nike

        Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who represented a porn star in a lawsuit against President Trump, was found guilty of trying to extort Nike. :clap:

        A New York federal jury on Friday found Avenatti guilty on three counts, including extortion, wire fraud and transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort. He faces up to a combined :hahaha: 42 years in prison.

        Avenatti, 48, who did not testify in the case against him, pleaded not guilty to charges alleging that he tried to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening to expose corruption at the sports footwear company unless he was allowed to conduct an internal probe of Nike. Prosecutors said he had more than $11 million in debts at the time. :loser:

        Avenatti became prominent during frequent cable television program appearances in 2018 and 2019 as journalists courted him for information about porn star Stormy Daniels. She made claims about a Trump tryst before he became president and a payoff to remain silent about it. At the peak of his notoriety, Avenatti even considered running for president. :rotfl:

        However, his fall from grace came when he was arrested last year as he was about to meet Nike lawyers to press his demands for millions to conduct an internal probe of the Beaverton, Oregon-based shoemaker. :nono:
        ...
        During the jury's decision Friday, Avenatti was seen in court blessing himself before the verdict was read. He looked straight ahead with a sad expression. :( After the jury read the verdict, his lawyer put his hand on Avenatti's shoulder. :therethere:
        Sentencing is set for June 17. Avenatti's defense lawyer told reporters he will appeal on the basis of jury instructions. :banned: He told reporters Avenatti was "very disappointed" with the verdict. :panic:

        In addition to the extortion trial, Avenatti also faces an April trial in New York on charges that he defrauded Daniels of book proceeds and a May trial in Los Angeles on charges that he defrauded clients and others of millions of dollars. :byebye:

                Not for nothing, Im glad to see this piece of whale schiff get what is coming to him, but how is this different than what Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Barry Obammy did for years?

                      I predict he will regret those words fairly soon.

                      Or maybe not.

                            He would have been the guy to run with Hillary, not Bloomberg.

                            Avenatti isn’t pond scum...he got a raw deal. Plenty of people hire lawyers to negotiate settlements on their behalf with big corporations or celebrities to keep things quite (think Tiger Woods paying hush money to females represented by Gloria Allred to keep his affairs under wraps) and they don’t to prison on Trumped up extortion charges.

                            The only reason Avenatti was convicted is because that bastard Trump pressured the prosecutor’s office to bring charges and he also pressured the judge & jurors to convict with his tweets.

                            Bottom line is Trump didn’t want to face Avenatti in the general election come November 2020. There was a pretty good chance Avenatti would have won. Worst case scenario is Avenatti, if not the Dem nominee, would have with 99.99% certainty been the pick for VP, and if it was a Biden/Avenatti ticket or Sanders/Avenatti ticket, Trump would definitely lose. Trump knew this and used his power to avoid having to face a strong opponent late this year. It’s absolutely disgusting!
