The Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC), the New York City prison that housed sex fiend Jeffrey Epstein when he died mysteriously, is refusing to divulge information about prisoner Michael Avenatti.
Big League Politics reached out to the MCC and talked with representatives from the prison who refused to send us his mug shot. We have filled a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, demanding access to the booking photograph as a result.
Avenatti is reportedly being subject to harsh conditions during his incarceration for allegedly violating bail conditions while awaiting an extortion trial:
Avenatti is awaiting trial on an extortion charge in a jail cell that reportedly once housed Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
Judge Paul Gardephe’s order came a day after Avenatti’s lawyers complained about the conditions the critic of President Donald Trump faces in what they called the “notorious 10-South” section of Special Housing Unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.
Avenatti was arrested last week in Los Angeles after federal prosecutors there told a judge he had committed financial crimes while free on bail since last summer.
The attorney is charged in three separate federal cases that allege he ripped off clients, including porn star Stormy Daniels, for millions of dollars and tried to extort more than $20 million from athletic apparel giant Nike. Avenatti has denied any wrongdoing.
The Nike case could begin next week in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. Avenatti’s lawyers told the judge that the conditions he is being kept in at the jail are making it difficult for him to help lawyers prepare for that trial.
In a letter Monday to Gardephe, Avenatti’s lawyers said that since arriving in New York last Friday, he has been kept in 10-South, “the most secure floor in the entire” federal jail facility in Manhattan.
MCC personnel has been accused of extreme incompetence due to their handling of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein while he was incarcerated in the facility. Epstein was inexplicably taken off of suicide watch despite the fact that he had reportedly attempted suicide weeks before, and prison guards were missing in action at the time of Epstein’s mysterious death.
Two MCC correctional officers have been charged with falsifying records in the aftermath of Epstein’s death, but they may just be the convenient fall guys for a deeper, darker conspiracy.
“As alleged, the defendants had a duty to ensure the safety and security of federal inmates in their care at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Instead, they repeatedly failed to conduct mandated checks on inmates, and lied on official forms to hide their dereliction,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said.
“Security protocols are in place to protect the public, fellow officers and inmates being held in the MCC. We allege these officers falsified records to create the appearance they were following those protocols. The security risks created by this type of behavior are immense,” FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. said.
“The message here is simple – citizens place their trust in those who have taken an oath to serve and protect the public, and when that trust is deliberately violated by public servants, who instead choose to break those regulations, then they will be held accountable,” he added.
Big League Politics will publish the Avenatti mug shot as soon as our FOIA request is processed and accepted.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
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.
