Progressive provocateur and cable news regular Michael Avenatti struck a contrite tone in an interview with CNN on Saturday, admitting that he had been humbled in recent months. Avenatti, who was touted by leading progressives as the future Presidential candidate of the Democratic Party for scrappy appearances on cable news networks such as MSNBC, recently was indicted by federal authorities for an alleged extortion of clothing corporation Nike.
“I’ve been humbled. I’ve been humbled significantly. There’s been a lot of highs and there’s been a lot of lows, and, frankly, I’ve attempted not to get too high.”
Avenatti’s tone was a stone’s throw from his cable news highlights as Stormy Daniels’ attorney, where he threw red meat to progressives regarding President Trump’s supposed non-disclosure deal with the porn star. Daniels dropped Avenatti as her lawyer when he was arrested for domestic violence, an arrest for which he never faced charges.
Prosecutors claim that Avenatti tried to extort Nike into providing him a large cash payment and hiring him as a consultant to correct perceived injustices executed by the company, or that he’d expose a college basketball corruption scandal.
Avenatti is also facing charges related to his alleged fraud and embezzlement of legal client’s money. Individuals who hired Avenatti’s services claim that the California lawyer pocketed legal settlements they were personally entitled to without their permission, falsely claiming that they’d receive funds at a later date.
Avenatti could face a life sentence from the charges levied against him, a far cry from the up-and-coming pit bull’s 15 minutes of fame as the pugnacious prodigy of the Democratic Party.

Jussie Smollett Charged By Special Prosecutor For Chicago Hate Hoax
Smollett won’t get off the hook after all.
Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.
Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.
But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.
““The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”
A statement from Smollett’s lawyers in light of the new criminal charges goes to show the former Empire actor isn’t thrilled that he’s going back to court to face accountability for his dishonest publicity stunt.
Smollett is set to appear in a Cook County courthouse on February 24th.
