Michael Avenatti was named in a lawsuit with a GOP megadonor client of Michael Cohen’s — and he doesn’t know why

Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti has become a celebrity in his own right — and proof can be found in a sealed lawsuit that names him as a defendant alongside GOP megadonor Elliott Broidy, a client of the president’s erstwhile personal attorney Michael Cohen.

On July 1, the Wall Street Journal revealed that Broidy is backing out of a hush-money agreement with former Playboy Playmate Shera Bechard because Keith Davidson, Bechard’s former lawyer that also used to represent Daniels, shared details about the model’s non-disclosure agreement with Avenatti.

On July 6, Avenatti said in a statement that Bechard has filed her own lawsuit — but he doesn’t know what’s in it because it was sealed “on an emergency basis.”

“Earlier today, I learned that Ms. Shera Bechard filed a new lawsuit naming Mr. Elliott Broidy, Mr. Keith Davidson, his law firm and me as Defendants,” Avenatti’s statement read. “I presently do not know what the allegations are because the Complaint was immediately sealed, on an emergency basis, at the request of Ms. Bechard’s attorneys.”

“This is highly unusual under California law,” he noted.

Avenatti went on to say that he has “no idea” why he was named in the suit because he “never represented her” and had never been in contact with her.

“I was never a party to any agreement with her and I never had any obligation to her,” the attorney’s statement continued.

Trump’s damage to the federal government is driving voters to turn to more liberal candidates: report

Published

According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump's tenure has not resulted in voters becoming more conservative, and instead, he is driving them into the arms of more liberal and progressive candidates at the local level who are then using their newfound power to change Democratic policies at the national level.

Trump's negative influence is turning into a positive for those candidates -- particularly in the big cities.

"From New York City to Los Angeles, many of the nation’s biggest cities have turned even harder to the left under President Donald Trump, putting pressure on local officials to embrace the leading progressive presidential candidates — or withhold their endorsements entirely for fear of antagonizing newly energized activists," the report states. "It’s a drastic political shift in some places, where for decades entrenched party bosses crushed any signs of life on the left or tended to put the weight of big-city institutional support behind Democratic establishment-oriented candidates."

According to Newsmax, Collins -- who has become one of the president's main surrogates opposing ouster of the president -- fired back at the Democrats over their Saturday release of thousands of pages of documents to be considered from the House impeachment investigation.

According to the report, Trump made an appearance on NBC's Hardball during the Clinton impeachment saga, where he told host Chris Matthews that Clinton needed to "go after his enemies," which has, to date, been Trump's main response to his own impeachment.
