Avenatti’s Ex-Partner: He Hid Millions From The Bankruptcy Court in Secret Accounts

Published

on

Michael Avenatti, who gained national fame representing porn star Stormy Daniels, stands accused of hiding millions of dollars in  secret bank accounts during his firm’s bankruptcy proceedings. Avenatti’s former partner levels this accusation against the anti-Trump lawyer.

The Los Angeles Times reports: “Avenatti signed the reports under penalty of perjury as the firm’s managing partner and majority owner. But the reports did not disclose that Avenatti opened six bank accounts that received millions of dollars in legal fees during the bankruptcy, his former partner claims in court documents filed Tuesday night. The reports also divulged nothing about the personal compensation to Avenatti, which would have required permission from the bankruptcy trustee, the court papers allege. He used some of the money for personal expenses such as $13,000 in rent for his Century City apartment; a $3,640 payment on his Ferrari; $21,000 for Passport 420, an Avenatti company that owns a Honda jet; $150,000 for his troubled coffee company, Global Baristas; $53,600 for his ex-wife, Christine Carlin; and $232,875 for HTP Motorsport, his auto racing team, the records show. The court documents were filed by Jason Frank, a former lawyer at Eagan Avenatti who has been trying for eight months to collect a $10-million judgment that he won against the firm. Frank’s court papers allege that Avenatti’s bank maneuvers were an unlawful effort to dodge his firm’s creditors. “This includes brazen acts of bankruptcy fraud,” Frank’s lawyer, Scott H. Sims, wrote in the court papers. Avenatti denied wrongdoing.”

Avenatti is in a downward spiral in left-wing Democrat politics after he was arrested in a suspicion of domestic violence case. Avenatti was not charged.

CNN celebrities including April Ryan and Don Lemon have been photographed partying with Michael Avenatti, who was not charged but whose accuser filed for a restraining order against him.

Jeff Zucker’s network promoted Avenatti for months during the invented Stormy Daniels scandal, and members of their very own pundit posse were pictured with Avenatti on multiple occasions.

Here’s the Instagram post in which CNN analyst April Ryan described her good time with Avenatti on April 29. The sign behind April Ryan and Avenatti reads “The Drunken Journalist.”

“Was I singing “Stormy Weather” to Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti? You had to have been there to know why we’re both smiling so hard. #MichaelAvenatti #CNN #WHCD #WHCA,” April Ryan wrote in her caption to the photograph.

Don Lemon also partied with Avenatti.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

on

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
