- Are Michael Avenatti’s problems just beginning to run up the pole? The disgraced attorney is now charged with defrauding Stormy Daniels.
- CNN reports a federal grand jury in Manhattan Wednesday indicted Avenatti for fraud and aggravated identity theft – in connection to his representation of Daniels and an attempted extortion scheme against Nike.
- Prosecutors say Avenatti stole about $300,000 from a Daniels advance book deal. He’s also accused of trying to extort $20 million from Nike.
- Do you believe the charges are credible? Is this the story of retribution or of a man who’s corruption was exposed by his own zeal?
