SNAP: Avenatti Lashes Out at Alyssa Milano Over Tweet from November
Huckster attorney Michael Avenatti, who is facing more than 40 felony counts on crimes ranging from embezzlement to wire fraud, lashed out at leftist actress Alyssa Milano on Twitter Monday over a Tweet from last November.
“[Alyssa Milano] – you preach about Trump’s need to follow the constitution but then ignore it yourself. You are a disgusting hypocrite. I don’t care what side you are on. Where the hell is my apology for you proclaiming my guilt for something I was never even charged with?” Avenatti said.
At the time, Avenatti had been arrested for domestic violence, but apparently never charged. Milano disavowed Avenatti after the arrest.
With his legal woes mounting, it seems the pressure might finally be getting to Avenatti, who, out of the blue, snapped at Milano over a nine month old Tweet.
Big League Politics reported on Avenatti’s legal trouble:
Former hotshot lawyer and foe of President Donald J. Trump is set for back-to-back arraignments Tuesday in a Manhattan federal court, according to The New York Post.
“Avenatti’s first scheduled appearance involves charges that he tried to shake down athletic gear giant Nike for $20 million,” The Post said. “He is then set to be arraigned before a different judge for allegedly stealing tens of thousands of dollars from his former client Stormy Daniels, a porn star who allegedly had an affair with President Trump.”
Avenatti stands accused of attempting to bilk Nike out of the $20 million after allegedly accusing the company of improperly paying amateur athletes, and then threatening to expose them unless they hired him as their attorney.
As for his most infamous client, he stands accused of stealing Daniels’ book advance. Daniels wrote a salacious account of an alleged affair with Trump after her attorney spent months on the cable news circuit barking at the President.
Separately, the attorney has been charged with wire and bank fraud after allegedly misrepresenting his assets in order to obtain a loan. He has also been charged with 36 other crimes ranging from, fraud, embezzlement, and failure to pay taxes, to perjury.
The California State Bar recently moved to suspend Avenatti’s law license.
