Former CNN and MSNBC Star Michael Avenatti Sentenced to 2.5 Years in Prison for Attempting to Extort Nike

Michael Avenatti, the brash California lawyer who once represented Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against President Donald Trump, was sentenced Thursday to 2 1/2 years in prison for trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening the company with bad publicity. Avenatti, 50, was convicted last year of charges including attempted extortion and honest services fraud in connection with his representation of a Los Angeles youth basketball league organizer who was upset that Nike had ended its league sponsorship.

At the forefront of how Donald Trump broke the media is this slimeball. The liberal media’s lovefest with Avenatti’s brashness and pure hatred for the former President, without any sense of professionalism much less vetting, is at the core of why hardly anyone trust’s the press.
