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.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
