STORMY DANIELS CHARGING MICHAEL AVENATTI FOR DEFRAUD

2019-05-22 23:11
Federal prosecutors in New York City say Avenatti diverted $300,000 that Daniels was supposed to get from a book deal and only half was paid back. Avenatti denied the allegations on Twitter, saying “No monies relating to Ms. Daniels were ever misappropriated or mishandled." "We crowdfunded, raised some money for expenses and the like. We lost millions of dollars in connection with this case. I would have been far better off financially if I would have never taken this case." He was previously charged in New York with trying to blackmail Nike for $25 million dollars, and in Los Angeles with defrauding clients, tax evasion, and bank fraud. He has denied any misconduct. Daniels first publicly raised concerns about Avenatti in November. She said he had launched a fundraising effort to raise money for her legal case without telling her. She also said he had filed a defamation lawsuit against Trump, on her behalf, against her wishes. She added on Twitter that she had fired Avenatti a month earlier after “discovering that he had dealt with [her] extremely dishonestly.”
