Michael Avenatti Granted Temporary Coronavirus Relief From Jail

Avenatti hasn’t been sentenced for his extortion conviction yet.

Former showboat attorney and cable news mainstay Michael Avenatti is being granted a temporary 90-day release from jail, freeing the disgraced ‘Resistance’ hero from New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center.

CNN reported Friday that a federal judge is allowing Avenatti 90 days of freedom as he awaits sentencing on his extortion conviction. Avenatti faces up to 40 years in prison for his February conviction, which involved him attempting to extort sporting goods company Nike of millions of dollars in return for his silence over their supposed abuse of college athletes.

Avenatti’s lawyers have argued before a federal judge that their client merits a temporary release because he suffered from a bout of pneumonia last year. A previous attempt on the part of Avenatti’s lawyers to free the former Stormy Daniels lawyer on the grounds of the coronavirus threat had failed, with President Trump pointing out Avenatti’s former 2020 Presidential hopes in favor of granting his relief.

If you’re expecting some of Avenatti’s signature bombastic and belligerent tweets, prepare to be disappointed, however. Avenatti is prohibited from using the internet during his temporary release. He’ll be staying at a friend’s house in Los Angeles, and will be tracked with an ankle monitor.

He’s set to be released after a 14-day period, during which he’s going to be examined by jail staff for any potential signs of coronavirus. Avenatti is currently jailed and awaiting sentencing at New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center, a jail infamous for the suspicious 2019 suicide of pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

Bill de Blasio Booed off Stage at George Floyd Memorial Event

Even New Yorkers are sick of the left-wing mayor.

Published

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio was roundly booed off stage during an appearance at a George Floyd memorial event on Thursday, with a raucous crowd drowning out the mayor’s remarks with boos and a torrent of profanity.

A Brooklyn pastor tried to encourage the crowd to treat de Blasio with respect, but he was roundly booed anyway.

De Blasio continued with his remarks, even though it was clear the crowd at the memorial didn’t want to hear from him. At points he couldn’t even be heard because the booing was so loud.

De Blasio’s as left-wing as they come, but he’s become increasingly unpopular in New York City for his handling of the Floyd race riots, which have surfaced in force in the already coronavirus-stricken city. Some New Yorkers are incensed with the curfew instituted to deter looting, and others are angry with the city’s total inability to deter the looting anyway. Governor Andrew Cuomo has already threatened to override de Blasio’s authority in order to put an end to the mass-scale rioting and looting in the city.

More than 700 rioters were arrested on Monday night alone, and more than 60 NYPD officers had to be hospitalized as a result of injuries sustained in the riots. The police department has increasingly given up on the prospect of restoring law and order in New York City, frustrated by de Blasio’s continual refusal to allow law enforcement to actually stop the widespread riots.
