Infamous attorney Michael Avenatti, who is on the brink of being disbarred, is in federal court this week facing a number of serious charges ranging from theft, tax fraud, extortion and more.

Avenatti became famous after the 2018 announcement he was representing porn star Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against President Trump. She alleged an affair with Trump back in 2006 and a cover-up through a hush money payment. The media immediately salivated at the idea Avenatti could be the man to finally take down Trump and greatly increased his public profile.

This week he’s facing charges he stole $300,000 from Daniels, which he denies. He’s also accused of attempting to extort millions of dollars from Nike and allegedly embezzling millions more from a paraplegic client. The list goes on.

Despite book deals and major media oxygen, when the Daniels allegations failed to have an impact on the White House, Avenatti looked for another angle. His opportunity came with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Representing a woman named Julie Swetnick, Avenatti accused Kavanaugh of gang rape. There was no evidence provided, only vague stories and Swetnick’s version quickly fell apart under basic questioning.
