Feds accuse Michael Avenatti of stealing from Stormy Daniels in latest indictment

Published

on

The embattled lawyer Michael Avenatti faced new federal charges Wednesday, after it was revealed that he allegedly stole money from his former client Stormy Daniels, the porn star that was paid off by Donald Trump’s fixer Michael Cohen.

Before his spectacular fall, Avenatti floated running for president against Donald Trump.

Wednesday, Avenatti told ABC News that “I’m not going to have any response at this time.”

But then he tweeted his response.

“I expect an indictment to issue from SDNY in the next 48 hrs charging me in connection with my arrest in March,” the Tweet said. “I intend on fighting these bogus/legally baseless allegations, and will plead not guilty to ALL CHARGES. I look forward to the trial where I can begin to clear my name.”

What drove the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer into Al Franken denialism?

Published

on

The defenders of Sen. Al Franken are perhaps the single most embarrassing group of allegedly progressive people in the Democratic coalition. Franken, who resigned from the Senate in January 2018, was accused by eight different women of sexual impropriety. Most of these accusations were both serious and credible, in that the women making them were mostly liberals who had no apparent reason to lie about Franken's behavior toward them. Despite this, Franken's defenders are married to the delusional belief that it's all just a frame-up and that if he'd had "due process" in the form of a Senate ethics investigation (run by Republicans, who control that chamber) he would have somehow managed to prove this.
