By now it should come as no surprise to anyone that Michael Avenatti is not a lawyer anyone should care to do business with.
Ah, but we also shouldn’t forget that the Trump-hating Establishment Media did just that over and over and over again . . .

Paraplegic sues Michael Avenatti for siphoning away $4 million settlement
Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who represented porn star Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against U.S. President Donald Trump, has been sued by a paraplegic client who accused him of siphoning away a $4 million settlement he had won.
Geoffrey Johnson is seeking at least $9.5 million plus punitive damages, from Avenatti and several of his former colleagues in a complaint filed with the Orange County Superior Court in California.
The claims underlying the lawsuit are also part of federal prosecutors’ criminal case against Avenatti, who faces wire fraud, bank fraud, extortion and a few dozen other charges over various matters in California and New York.
Prosecutors accused Avenatti in April of diverting most of the $4 million settlement, using some proceeds to finance his coffee business and pay personal expenses, and giving Johnson periodic “advances” that never exceeded $1,900 and totaled only about $124,000.
Thursday’s lawsuit adds to the legal problems for Avenatti, who drew national attention through his representation of Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, in lawsuits against Trump and the president’s former lawyer Michael Cohen.
Avenatti made hundreds of television appearances and briefly flirted with a 2020 White House run.
Here’s the thing. Michael Avenatti has a well-established history of questionable ethics. The media and Democrat operatives knew this but didn’t care because Avenatti was a tool by which they thought they could embarrass/damage President Trump with.
It seems if Adolph Hitler were here today and willing to talk badly about President Trump the far left media would forgive all his prior sins and give him a nice fat contributor contract.
That’s how deranged the media’s hatred of the President has become and it’s as sad as it is dangerous.
