The infamous former attorney for adult film actress Stormy Daniels pleaded not guilty on all counts Monday in federal court, weeks after being charged with wire fraud, stealing millions from clients, and dodging taxes.

“The 48-year-old [Michael] Avenatti, who was indicted earlier this month on 36 counts including wire and bank fraud, appeared in federal court for an arraignment in Santa Ana, California on Monday. The trial is set to begin on June 25 with a status hearing scheduled for June 15,” according to Fox News.

Prosecutors said that Avenatti embezzled settlement funds from five clients and that he “doled out small portions, sometimes labeling them as advances to prevent thefts from being discovered.”

“The right to a presumption of innocence and the right to a jury trial are two fundamental rights that our founding fathers demanded when this country was formed over 200 years ago,” the statement said.

Big League Politics reported on Avenatti:

Creepy porn lawyer and known huckster Michael Avenatti has been indicted by a Los Angeles grand jury on 36 charges, ranging from, fraud, embezzlement, and failure to pay taxes, to perjury.

“Avenatti stole millions of dollars from five clients and used a tangled web of shell companies and bank accounts to cover up the theft, the Santa Ana grand jury alleged in an indictment that prosecutors will make public Thursday,” said LA Times. 

The attorney, known for his representation of adult film actress Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against President Donald J. Trump – which he lost – allegedly embezzled a $4 million settlement from a mentally ill paraplegic client named Geoffrey Ernest Johnson. The report said that Avenatti his the money from Johnson for years.

“In 2017, Avenatti received $2.75 million in proceeds from another client’s legal settlement, but concealed that too, the indictment says,” the report said. “The next day, he put $2.5 million of that money into the purchase of a private jet for Passport 420, LLC, a company he effectively owned, according to prosecutors.”

If convicted on all charges, Avenatti faces up to 335 years in prison.

CNN once promoted him as a 2020 presidential candidate.

Federal Government Threatens to Defund Connecticut School Districts for Allowing Males to Compete in Female Sports

Published

on

In a “letter of impending enforcement action” released on May 28, 2020, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights declared that The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference violated Title IX by “permitting the participation of certain male student-athletes” in girls’ track events at several school districts.

The federal investigation was kicked off last summer and were the result of the Alliance Defending Freedom filing a complaint on behalf three female students. The Justice Department took sides with female students during the past month.

The biological females sustained that the “Transgender Participation” policy, which was first enacted seven years ago, were stripped of their rights under Title IX by allowing “boys who are male in every biological and physiological respect” compete in their sports, provided that they “claim a female gender identity.”

The CIAC policy started to yield troubling results when two biological males who identified as girls began dominating girls’ track meets. This policy is less stringent than the NCAA’s transgender policy, which mandates males to take testosterone-suppressing hormones for at least a year before participating in female sports competitions.

Three school districts violated Title IX by also participating in CIAC athletic events. “Glastonbury, Canton, and Danbury placed female student-athletes in athletic events against male student-athletes, resulting in competitive disadvantages for female student-athletes,” federal officials stated.

They added:

The athletic events in which the female student-athletes competed were coeducational; female student-athletes were denied the opportunity to compete in events that were exclusively female, whereas male student-athletes were able to compete in events that were exclusively male.

On top of that, three other districts – Hartford, Bloomfield and Cromwell – violated Title IX by allowing two biological males, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, compete on female teams per CIAC policy. According to the OCR, the conference and six districts “treated student-athletes differently based on sex.”

According to Greg Piper of the College Fix, “The letter uses pseudonyms for the students but all have been previously named. The girls filed a related lawsuit in February under their real names: Alanna Smith, Chelsea Mitchell and Selina Soule.”

The conference and six districts rejected “resolution agreements” with OCR, prompting the office to issue them “letters of impasse” on March 17. These are basically warning letters. The office initially gave them 10 days to comply. They then extended the deadline by an additional 30 days as a result of “their COVID-19-related duties and responsibilities.”

At the moment, OCR will either “initiate administrative proceedings” to block federal funding for the conference and districts or hand the cases over to the Justice Department in order for it to enforce federal law.

It’s good to see athletes finally get justice.

Thanks to the Left grabbing control of so many American institutions, Americans are subjected to a wide array of politically correct experiments.

This is a solid victory which should be built upon by the Trump administration and members of Congress.
