The once front and center attorney who was often discussed as a democratic presidential candidate, he'd make an even two-dozen at this juncture, may be facing federal charges in New York City of misappropriation of a clients funds.

While spokesmen for the US Attorney in New York City would not be specific, they expect to be proffering charges of financial crimes against Michael Avenatti the former attorney (Creepy Porn Lawyer) for Stormy Daniels.

Avenatti represented the actress and the new charges will address the misappropriation of money that was supposed to be paid to Stormy Daniels, when the attorney was representing Ms. Daniels in her public battle against President Trump. The actress sued the president for defamation, but a California judge threw out the suit and ordered Daniels to reimburse the president for legal fees.

I'm Innocent

Avenatti has already released a statement regarding the potential new charges: 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.

Good luck with that, sir. We'll all be waiting and watching for the outcomes.

Attempted to Muscle Nike

Avenatti and an associate, Mark Geragos are also under suspicion of trying to leverage clothing maker Nike. In March a Central District Court in California alleged Avenatti committed wire and bank fraud in a scheme that threatened to release damaging information about the corporation if it refused to pay the attorney millions of dollars.

This is a developing story.
