Michael Avenatti Is in Profonda Merda

It’s vulgar and unseemly to gloat about the misfortunes of an enemy. It’s just uncivilized. So the sooner we get started, the sooner we can get it over with.


Courtesy of Erica Orden at CNN, the network that put Avenatti on the air 121 times last year:

A federal grand jury in Manhattan indicted celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti on Wednesday in two alleged schemes, charging him with fraud and aggravated identity theft involving his former client, Stormy Daniels, and with attempting to extort more than $20 million from sportswear giant Nike…

In all, Avenatti stole “approximately $300,000” from Daniels, the indictment states, and has failed to repay her half of that sum.

He’s charged with ripping off both Nike and Stormy Daniels? That’s perfect: “Just Do It” and “Just Do Me.”

Avenatti is also the subject of an eye-opening new Vanity Fair story, in which his ex-girlfriend Mareli Miniutti accuses him of abuse, and some anonymous cable-news cowards accuse him of some horrible backstage behavior. He’s having a very bad day.

There are a lot of red faces out there today, or at least there would be if any of the media hacks who once glorified Avenatti were capable of shame. They’ll just move right along as if nothing happened, but the rest of us will remember. David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon certainly remembers. Here’s Rutz’s latest supercut, and it’s a doozy:

Maybe Avenatti can get some advice on how to get along in the joint from newly released ex-con Anthony Weiner.

The Dems sure can pick ’em, huh?
