Michael Avenatti indicted on charges of stealing from a Porn Star

One time potential Democratic Presidential hopeful(laughable) Michael Avenatti on Wednesday was brought up on new charges. This time alleging that he scammed nearly $300,000 from Stormy Daniels, the adult actress he represented in a case against President Donald Trump.

Prosecutors in New York claim that the “Creepy Porn Lawyer” sent a fraudulent and unauthorized letter containing Daniels’ signature to her book agent instructing the agent to send payments to his bank account rather than to her.

Avenatti, an annoying California lawyer, rose to fame after representing Daniels in a legal battle against Trump over a payment in the closing weeks of the 2016 campaign to silence her claim that the two had an affair years earlier. After 211 appearances on CNN, he became legal antagonist of Trump. It’s pretty comical that the porn star that lead him to fame is the very one who’s taking him down. Avenatti is facing 404 years in prison.
