Michael Avenatti convicted of trying to extort Nike

Michael Avenatti, whom at least some Democrats considered a “serious contender” for the 2020 Democrat Presidential race found guilty.

(Avenatti is also the pretender that attempted to bring almost-certanly fake charges against Judge Kavanaugh with an alleged gang-rape victim of very questionable credibility that even the Democrats complained about (here) named Julie Swetnick.)


Michael Avenatti convicted of trying to extort Nike

By Lucia I. Suarez Sang | Fox News

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who represented a porn star in a lawsuit against President Trump, was found guilty of trying to extort Nike.

A New York federal jury on Friday found Avenatti guilty on three counts, including extortion, wire fraud and transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort.

He faces up to a combined 42 years in prison.

Here is CNN New analyst Brian Stelter affirming on air, that he is taking Avenatti “seriously” as a Democrat candidate for President.

Others in the video proverbially falling all over themselves too over Avenatti.

Not because Avenatti was the read deal. No. They could have asked any conservative and they would have told them the same thing about him as Tucker Carlson has. . . . Avenatti is just “creepy” and is not to be taken “seriously” for dog catcher much less President.

They are just falling over themselves because Avnatti despised President Trump.

And so in their Trump Derangement Syndrome, affirmed an obviously defective man (Avenatti) in a way that just looks silly now.

Political satirist Mark Dice is just doing the voice-over for satire. But make no mistake.

Stelter and the others, REALLY said these things presented here! (From back in March of 2019)

This video is qued up for you close to the Stelter portion.

If interested in the whole video, you can see that whole video easily here.

Brian Stelter and Joy Behar thought he could run for president in 2020. Now he’s going to jail. . . .

. . . Back in 2018, a Media Research Center study revealed that Avenatti, who represented a porn star in a lawsuit against President Trump, appeared on CNN a whopping 74 times over a 10-week period and the network’s in-house media critic famously declared the now-disgraced porn lawyer was a legitimate threat to challenge Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

Stelter told Avenatti on air, "Looking ahead to 2020, one of the reasons why I’m taking you seriously as a [2020 presidential] contender is because of your presence on cable news.” . . .

. . . At the height of Avenatti’s fame, he spent his rare time away from CNN’s greenroom partying with the network’s anchors while regularly appearing on late-night shows, MSNBC and “The View.” . . .

. . . Juanita Scarlett, a former aide to Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of New York and brother of CNN host Chris Cuomo, once tweeted – and then deleted – a photo of herself with Avenatti and another CNN host, Don Lemon, who apparently hosted a bash at his posh Hamptons home.

It’s unclear how many other CNN personalities were at Lemon’s “Sag Harbor soiree,” but it was clear Avenatti had a cozy relationship with the liberal network prior to his drastic fall from grace.

CNN was even accused of downplaying Avenatti’s Nov. 2018 arrest and Stelter once admitted critics “have a legit reason to dunk on me” when he chalked up omitting a negative story about Avenatti from his newsletter to a mix up. . . .

. . . Young said Stelter’s theory that Avenatti was a legitimate contender for president shows the CNN pundit has a “complete lack of understanding of the media and political sphere” for valuing a now-convicted felon over most politicians in America.

“It’s an important reminder that people aren’t smarter than you or better judges of character just because they have a major media platform,” . . . .

. . . But CNN wasn’t the only liberal network to parade Avenatti in front of the camera. Over the same 10-week period, Avenatti appeared on MSNBC 57 times, according to the study. . . .

. . . “On a single day [May 3 2018], MSNBC featured Avenatti a stunning seven times,” D’Agostino and Noyes wrote. “While CNN has been the friendliest network… MSNBC has been close behind.” . . .

. . . Avenatti hasn’t been able to appear on CNN, or anywhere else, as he was in custody after violating bail conditions in a federal case against him in California and was housed at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center during the trial. . .

Storm was very self-destructive as was Avenatti. We all know that who have followed this story over the years.

Tucker puts the media proverbially on trial in all of this too!


Excellent segment from Tucker who called this in principle, from the beginning.
