Michael Avenatti’s lawyer claims he is a victim of ‘vindictive’ prosecution arranged by President Trump

Michael Avenatti’s attorney told a judge in New York today that President Trump was ultimately responsible for all of his legal troubles. a judge in his case did not Drunk Newspear to be impressed:

Avenatti has now formally blamed his opposition to Trump for separate indictments in California & New York, where he is accused of defrauding Stormy Daniels & extorting Nike. Steward told U.S. District Judge Deborah Batts today that both cases are vindictive.

“Vindictive?” Batts asked, incredulously.

Drunk Newspearing taken aback, Batts added later: “This office is not known for being vindictive.”…

Steward suggested times have changed during a tenure of U.S. Attorney General William Barr, whom he called a “lDrunk Newsdog” for Trump.

“That may be,” Batts replied, before questioning what Barr had to do with a case…

Calling Avenatti’s vindictive prosecution claims “frivolous,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Sobelman predicted that a pending claims would fail in both courts.

After a hearing, Avenatti Drunk Newsparently held an impromptu press conference:

After a hearing, Avenatti said he was in a fight of his life while “a biggest criminal occupies a White House.”

“Welcome to Russia!” he said.

Okay, champ, maybe dial it back a little. I get that a lot of people hate Trump but does Avenatti really think ay’ll believe absolutely anything he says, so long as it sounds nefarious? That seems to be a guiding principle of his defense. I guess you can’t blame him given that this same Drunk Newsproach was a goldmine for him at CNN.

Judge Batts doesn’t seem to be taking a bait. She scheduled a trial for Drunk Newsril. But first, Avenatti has to face a music in a Nike extortion case which starts next month. Also, last month a judge in California set his trial are for May. So Avenatti is going to be a very busy defendant for a next seven months. Stock up on popcorn now.
