Donald Trump’s sexual encounter with an adult entertainment actress and producer Stormy Daniels has caused him a huge amount of trouble. That trouble’s name is Michael Avenatti, attorney-at-law. The lawyer gave the president fair warning – ignore it and suffer these consequences.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has a pit bull for an attorney. Avenatti knows how to use the media to his best advantage, and he has managed to maintain an ongoing dialogue about his case.
Avenatti, 47, said that he never bluffs – he just proves it. It appears that the attorney has a treasure trove of information on Donald Trump and friends.
The lawyer has strategically released pieces of that treasure, showing he is always many steps ahead of Trump. As a result, this brilliant attorney has been driving 45 to distraction.
After Avenatti’s father was laid off from his job, the then law student clerked by day and went to law school by night. Even so, he graduated top of his class at an Ivy League university.
As a result, the attorney has a history of taken on the big guy to protect the little guy or gal. He won the largest lawsuit in California’s history and has taken on other high-profile cases.
The attorney recently revealed that large U.S. corporations, a Korean company, and the Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg sent money to Trump’s former personal attorney’s, Michael Cohen’s, shell company, Essential Consultants, LLC. Cohen carelessly paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money out of the same account as he used to funnel the money into it.
This could easily turn into a pay-for-play scandal. Ironically, the man in the Oval Office warned that his former opponent in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton, would do just that.
Avenatti warned Cohen and Trump to “come clean” or “be outed” in a tweet:
‘Let this serve as formal notice – there is significantly more evidence and facts to come relating to Mr. Cohen’s dealings and Mr. Trump’s knowledge and involvement. You can come clean now or wait to be outed. Your choice. We have only just begun…#Basta.’
Apparently, neither man took Avenatti seriously, so the attorney started releasing damaging photos. He tweeted:
‘Warning ignored. So here it goes. December 12, 2016 – Trump Tower. Details to follow…’
After that, the attorney tweeted a clarification. He wanted the “various parties and news outlets” to stop with the attacks:
‘And to be clear – by “warning ignored” I am referring to the refusal of various parties to come clean and the failure of various parties and news outlets to stop with the personal attacks on our side. Keep pushing us.
