Avenatti Convicted of Extortion Against Nike


Michael Avenatti, the lawyer and media darling who represented porn star Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against President Trump, was found guilty on Friday of trying to extort Nike.

Fox News reports a New York federal jury found Avenatti guilty on three counts, including extortion, wire fraud and transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort.

He faces up to a combined 42 years in prison.

“The Democrats could learn something from you,” MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle once said of Avenatti.

Perhaps they did.

It’s fun to look back at all the leftist media love Avenatti was given, to walk down memory lane watch the video above.
