The creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti has been arrested for allegedly attempting to extort Nike In New York. Not only that Avenatti is being charged for bank embezzlement in a Central District of California.
It is hard for Conservatives not to gloat when they witness poetic justice with charges against the crooked slummy lawyer that attempted to smear President Trump and Justice Kavanaugh in an attempt to make himself famous.
Federal Prosecutors from a Southern District of New York filed Charges against Avenatti, “for attempting to extract more than $20 million in payments from a publicly traded company by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict substantial financial and reputational harm on the company if his demands were not met.”
CNN reported, “According to the criminal complaint, Avenatti met in March 2019 with an attorney for Nike and threatened to release damaging information about the company if Nike didn’t make millions in payment to himself and an unnamed co-conspirator. Avenatti also allegedly demanded that Nike pay $1.5 million to an individual he claimed to represent.”
One hour before charges were announced Avenatti released a tweet claiming he will expose Nike for a scandal.
Avenatti tweeted, Tmrw at 11 am ET, we will be holding a press conference to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered. This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball.
Avenatti’s troubles didn’t stop there because he was also charged for bank embezzlement in Central District of California on Monday.
Federal prosecutors from the Central District of California stated, avenatti “was arrested today pursuant to a criminal complaint alleging he embezzled a client’s money in order to pay his own expenses and debts — as well as those of his coffee business and law firm — and also defrauded a bank by using phony tax returns to obtain millions of dollars in loans.”
