DC: Michael Avenatti told The Daily Beast Tuesday that he believes the Russian government is trying to plant damaging stories about him in the press, without any evidence to support this claim.
Avenatti, the media-friendly attorney representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump, claims two members of the media and a “high ranking American intelligence official” informed him of the Russian plot.
“They’re doing it because they see me as a threat, a considerable threat,” he told The Daily Beast. “If we weren’t a threat, none of this would be happening.”
Avenatti also told The Daily Beast that members of the Russian government are trying to spread a story that he once traveled to Moscow and had sexual relationships with several women during his trip.
“They were trying to claim that I too had taken a trip to Moscow,” Avenatti said to The Daily Beast. “I’ve never been to Moscow in my life. I’ve never traveled to Russia in my life.”
The Daily Beast says Avenatti did not substantiate any of these allegations. more here
Avenatti, what makes you think your that important? Your nothing but a slimy whoremonger masquerading as a lawyer.
To be fair, there have been quite a few damaging news stories. Unfortunately for Avenatti, they are mostly true.
@moochoman – There are a number of specialty areas for lawyers: patent law, criminal law, corporate law, etc. Avenatti doesn’t need to masquerade to practice in his well-known specialty area of slimy whoremongering law.
Credit goes to Hillary for setting the bar on dignity so low!
There will soon be third graders claiming ‘the Russians stole my homework’.
The democrats have elevated “the Russians did it” to the same level as “racists”, “feminists” and “victim”, no one even hears it anymore.
Yes indeed, they’re setting this honorable counselor up. The brilliant Russian strategy is to let him go about his daily business unimpeded. Stand back and watch the fun begin.
So it isn’t Gen. Mattis who keeps the Kremlin awake at night but deadbeat shyster Avenatti.
Either the Russian radio guys who punked Schiff have racked up another successful caper, or they decided that they couldn’t top Avenatti’s self-punking.
So much good material out there, and yet SNL continues to suck under its vow of comedy chastity.
Since he got the info from two in media and one in Intel, we all know this is reliable. The Russians are coming for Michael, but we shouldn’t get involved. i
Things not going your way? Blame the Russians!
Russians: the Jews of the 21st century.
Of course they see him as a threat.
But wait— isn’t Trump supposed to be a lackey tool minion of Evil Putin?
And therefore under Putin’s dark protection?
So, Avenatti is pretending there’s a fatal polonium umbrella with his name on it? 😀
Slimebag deadbeat is in more danger from the IRS.
Or from his Crack dealer.
I won’t be surprised to read the chiseling loudmouth was found stabbed 150 times in some 3 AM “ drug deal gone wrong”.
Is he quitting the Mike and Stormy Show and going solo?
Hey, hey! Y’all back off lil’ mike. He could be right. Even I suspect it was Russians that let the air out of my right rear tire yesterday. Bastards!
I hope he owes Russians a lot of money.
