The Wall Street Journal is reporting breaking news that Michael Avenatti, the so-called “creepy porn lawyer” who tried to take down President Trump and represented Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against Trump, has been criminally charged with attempted extortion against Nike.
Before the total implosion of the Russia collusion hoax, Michael Avenatti was the darling of the lying left-wing media which paraded him across every imaginable show and proclaimed him to be a champion of truth who could run for President himself and defeat Trump.
Now, Avenatti will face criminal charges for what is being described as an attempt to extort money from Nike. According to media sources, Avenatti, “attempting to extract more than $20M in payments from a publicly traded company by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict substantial financial & reputational harm on the company if his demands were not met.”
Apparently, Nike refused to pay up, since Avenatti tweeted his intention to hold a press conference to expose “criminal conduct” of Nike itself:
Tmrw at 11 am ET, we will be holding a press conference to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered. This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball.
Nike shares plummeted in late morning trading as news of the Avenatti threat circulated. But within about an hour, the Wall Street Journal broke the news that Avenatti had been criminally charged by the the SDNY for extortion. Nike shares began to rebound.
It seems like today is a double-whammy for the deranged, lunatic Left that has pushed the fraudulent Russia collusion hoax for more than two years. Not only has that hoax completely collapsed, but now the Left’s “champion” who was supposed to defeat Trump in the 2020 election is facing felony extortion charges.
And it didn’t take 40 FBI agents, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants and 500 witnesses either, which is exactly what was thrown at Trump to try to destroy his presidency over the last two years.
Democrats are in total meltdown, and even that’s nothing compared to the way they’re going to be flinging themselves off tall buildings after Trump wins the 2020 election. Try not to be standing below…
