Kirsters Baish| We all know who Michael Avenatti is by now. For anyone who has been living under a rock, Avenatti is the creepy lawyer representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her case against President Donald Trump. Avenatti has been seen constantly on CNN and MSNBC, making all different kinds of ridiculous claims about President Trump as well as his person attorney, Michael Cohen. Despite this, the mainstream media hasn’t held Avenatti to any kind of standard of truth-telling or accountability.
Things are starting to change, and we are demanding answers. Multiple conservative news outlets are starting to call him out, and his personal history is being investigated. Obviously Avenatti isn’t happy.
He’s so unhappy, in fact, that he has threatened to sue conservative news outlet, the Daily Caller, after they wrote about both his personal business and legal history.
From Daily Caller:
“Let me be clear. If you and your colleagues do not stop with the hit pieces that are full of lies and defamatory statements, I will have no choice but to sue each of you and your publication for defamation,” Avenatti wrote in an email to TheDCNF.
“During that process, we will expose your publication for what it truly is. We will also recover significant damages against each of you that participated personally. So if I were you, I would tell Mr. Trump to find someone else to fabricate things about me.”
“If you think I’m kidding, you really don’t know anything about me. This is the last warning,” he warned.
If Avenatti thought he was going to get away with threatening a news outlet without them spilling the beans, he clearly wasn’t thinking straight. The Caller did more than just share the email. They wrote an entire story on Avenatti’s threat, claiming that they never made an agreement to keep the email “off the record,” so they had no obligation to keep quiet about it.
BizPac Review reported that among the dirt the was dug up on Avenatti were multiple lawsuits, bankruptcy filings, as well as abandoned business partners. The DCNF has explained that those who have worked with Avenatti have called him greedy and ruthless.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson explained on his show that Avenatti’s firm has been named inver 50 different state and federal complaints. This includes lawsuits as well as warrants for taxes that remain unpaid.
David Nold, a lawyer from Washington state, accused Avenatti of having carried out an “illegal pump and dump scheme.” He claims that in this scheme Avenatti withheld both state as well as federal taxes from his employees, however he did not pay those taxes.
Carlson also reported that Avenatti has both state tax liens and federal tax liens which equal 1.5 million. This includes $300,000 from only three months ago.
