California State Bar Moves to Suspend Avenatti’s Law License

The attorney – a defendant in several criminal cases – blasted the State Bar over its threat of suspending his license.

A huckster attorney, known for his representation of adult film star Stormy Daniels in a case against President Donald J. Trump and his many appearances on our esteemed leftist cable news networks, may soon be suspended from practicing law in California.

“The California State Bar, which oversees discipline for all California-licensed attorneys, issued a ‘consumer alert’ Monday evening concerning Michael Avenatti, saying it was moving to suspend him from the practice of law because his alleged conduct ‘poses a substantial threat of harm to clients or the public,'” according to Fox News.

The anti-Trump former hotshot is currently embattled in several criminal matters – only he is the defendant, not the attorney.

“The action by the CA State Bar is nothing more than a ‘pile-on’ and was entirely expected in light of the pending charges,” Avenatti told Fox. “I offered to cooperate with the Bar and instead they decided to issue a press release as a stunt. I look forward to being fully exonerated by the facts.”

Last week, Avenatti was arraigned in two criminal cases back-to-back in the same federal court in Manhattan, but in front of different judges.

Big League Politics reported:

Former hotshot lawyer and foe of President Donald J. Trump is set for back-to-back arraignments Tuesday in a Manhattan federal court, according to The New York Post. 

“Avenatti’s first scheduled appearance involves charges that he tried to shake down athletic gear giant Nike for $20 million,” The Post said. “He is then set to be arraigned before a different judge for allegedly stealing tens of thousands of dollars from his former client Stormy Daniels, a porn star who allegedly had an affair with President Trump.”

Avenatti stands accused of attempting to bilk Nike out of the $20 million after allegedly accusing the company of improperly paying amateur athletes, and then threatening to expose them unless they hired him as their attorney.

As for his most infamous client, he stands accused of stealing Daniels’ book advance. Daniels wrote a salacious account of an alleged affair with Trump after her attorney spent months on the cable news circuit barking at the President.

Separately, the attorney has been charged with wire and bank fraud after allegedly misrepresenting his assets in order to obtain a loan. He has also been charged with 36 other crimes ranging from, fraud, embezzlement, and failure to pay taxes, to perjury.

Avenatti maintains his innocence.

“I want to face a jury in both New York cases as soon as reasonably possible, and when I do, I will be exonerated,” he told The Post.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
