A clever meme said that “Michael Avenatti has a lion rug in his bedroom. It’s not dead, just too scared to move.” That summed up the attorney currently representing adult entertainment and producer Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, pretty fairly. Now, Avenatti has threatened another lawsuit.
Daniels pit bull attorney has been an aggravation to the man sitting in the Oval Office from the day he walked onto the news scene. The attorney gets more TV times than Trump, and that must be highly irritating to the president.
Avenatti reportedly just sent an email threatening to sue The Daily Caller and its reporters, according to the publication. Apparently, he was threatening a lawsuit for “defamatory statement.”
Writer for the publication, Peter Hasson tweeted:
‘Avenatti’s threats came less than 12 hours after @SaysSimonson and I published this.’
Hasson tweeted again:
‘@MichaelAvenatti sent me an email this morning threatening to sue me and my colleagues for reporting on him.’
Then, Hasson continued:
The email was written in the language and tempo of the attorney’s spoken voice. Plus, Avenatti does not mess around, “This is the last warning:”
‘Let me be clear. If you and your colleagues do not stop with the hit pieces that are full of lies and defamatory statements, I have no choice but to sue each of you and your publication for defamation. During that process, we will expose your publication for what it truly is. If you think I’m kidding, you really don’t know anything about me. This is the last warning.’
It seemed that the attorney wrote at the top of the email “Off the Record.” Of course, that did not stop The Daily News from releasing it.
