The abrasive attorney who garnered fame by representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels in a case against President Donald J. Trump has now been charged with stealing money from her.

“Attorney Michael Avenatti has been charged with ripping off porn star Stormy Daniels, the client who made him famous,” according to Associated Press. “The allegations against Avenatti were revealed in charges filed Wednesday in New York. Federal prosecutors say Avenatti took money Daniels was supposed to get from a book deal.”

Avenatti, once a frequent guest on cable news networks like CNN and MSNBC who was known for his tough talk and ridicule of Trump, denied the allegations on Twitter.

“No monies relating to Ms. Daniels were ever misappropriated or mishandled. She received millions of dollars worth of legal services and we spent huge sums in expenses. She directly paid only $100.00 for all that she received. I look forward to a jury hearing the evidence,” he said.

Avenatti was recently charged with several felonies related to his dealings with past clients.

Big League Politics reported:

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 counts, Avenatti faces up to 335 years in prison.

He was previously indicted on four counts extortion for his dealings with Nike corporation, and separately on wire fraud and bank fraud.

President Trump: Best Pro-Life President Ever?

Published

on

Karen Cross, the Political Director for National Right to Life, praised President Donald Trump for his pro-life efforts during his administration.

At Life News, she wrote “President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history.

Ever.”

The National Right to Life Committee endorsed president Trump’s re-election bid on July 4, 2019.

That day, Carol Tobias, the president of National Right to Life, said:

“As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life. From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.”

One of the Trump administration’s first actions as president was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which bars tax funds from going to organizations that carry out abortions or lobby to bring pro-abortion laws to host countries. Trump followed up by expanding this policy to keep $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to bankroll the global abortion industry.

The Trump Administration also slashed funding to the United Nations Population Fund due to that agency’s involvement with China’s forced abortion program.

President Trump originally pledged “to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state.”

According to Cross, President Trump vowed to sign the following pro-life legislative items:

  • The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
  • The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; and
  • The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

The National Right to Life Political Director emphasized the importance of the 2020 elections. She stated that this election “will determine who appoints justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous federal judges to lower courts.”

Having Republican control of the Senate will allow Trump to continue to nominate conservative judges.

So far, Trump has nominated 192 federal judges, which include U.S. Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were ultimately confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Having Nancy Pelosi out of the picture as House Speaker will allow for pro-life legislation to actually move out of the House.

All in all, pro-lifers’ best bet for any type of policy change will be for Republicans to gain control of all three branches of government.
