According to TMZ, Michael Avenatti has been arrested charges of domestic violence and released on $50,000 bail. The woman is NOT Avenatti’s estranged wife, who has said in a recent statement that ‘she has never known Michael to be physically violent to anyone’.
Also according to the original report: when the police arrived to escort the woman to the higher floors of the building, Avenatti arrived soon after saying: “She hit me first. This is bullshit, this is fucking bullshit”.
Avenatti has of course denied all charges, and is now blaming ‘Trumpenomics expert’ Jacob Wohl, who is currently under investigation by the FBI for allegedly trying to smear special counsel Robert Mueller.
So the most politically motivated lawyer in the country has found himself in a jam. Was he set up? Will it turn out that his being something of ‘not-the-best-person’ extends a little beyond his willingness to represent false witnesses and use his status as the lawyer of the woman who’s black mailed the president to expand his career? (I mention the ‘black mailing’, not so much for proof given in the link, but because I don’t see why it’s such a big deal that Trump gave her money to be quiet. She took it. Whether or not she’s telling the truth about the threats and all is irrelevant, she’s made a fortune all out of being ‘the woman who banged an orangutan’ (give me proof, Mr. President; give me proof). Ultimately I really don’t know why we’re talking about this without evidence, but, hey, presidents are kings now; why talk about what actually makes people people when we can talk about what makes this one guy TERRIBLE!)
One thing is for sure:
This is stupid.
