Judge orders Stormy Daniels to pay Trump $293K in legal fees

Stormy Daniels is said to be in some rather serious financial peril these days as she is being sucked dry by a combination of legal stupidity on her part, as well as mounting legal fees owed to her (rumored to be in danger of being disbarred) attorney, Michael Avenatti. This week the judge who threw out her lame attempt to sue President Trump for defamation also ordered Ms. Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) to pay Trump nearly $300,000 in legal fees. OUCH!

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered adult-film star Stormy Daniels to pay President Trump more than $293,000 in legal fees amid their ongoing legal battles.

U.S. District Judge James Otero ordered Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, to pay the fees in her defamation case against Trump, which Otero dismissed in October.

Trump’s attorney, Charles Harder, praised Tuesday’s decision as “a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case.”

Avenatti blasted the decision Tuesday, saying in a statement to The Hill that “Harder and Trump deserve each other because they are both dishonest.”

Media Rips 3rd Kavanaugh Accusor And Her Porn Star Attorney

It seems mud-raking attorney to the porn stars,  Michael Avenatti, was worried he was being overlooked in the lead up to the Judge Brett Kavanaugh hearings this week. Lo and behold, a woman emerged from the shadows to declare a then-sixteen-year-old Brett Kavanaugh was involved in numerous “gang rape” high school parties more than thirty years ago. The woman, Julie Swetnick, was an adult allegedly attending these high school parties and went back to them repeatedly despite what she now alleges was happening there. The media are now looking at both Avenatti and Swetnick with increased skepticism as both appear poised to jump the shark on this entire politically-driven fiasco.

Seven questions for Julie Swetnick and Michael Avenatti

Swetnick’s accusations against the Supreme Court nominee raise seven questions:

1) Given the seriousness of these allegations, why did Michael Avenatti and Julie Swetnick decline to go directly to the police?

2) Likewise, why did Avenatti and Swetnick bypass the press? Did anyone in the press look into this story? What did they find? The New York Times confirms that “none of Ms. Swetnick’s claims could be independently corroborated by The New York Times, and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, declined to make her available for an interview.” Why?

3) Where are the witnesses? The charge is of gang rape. Leave aside the question of whether Brett Kavanaugh was involved — and forget for a moment that we’re debating whether he should be on the Supreme Court — surely there are a whole host of victims, perpetrators and witnesses to this monstrous crime. Where are they?

4) Is is not a little strange that there are only two details provided, and that they happen to be public knowledge already? The two names given are Mark Judge’s and Brett Kavanaugh’s. The time given is “BEACH WEEK,” which is listed on the calendar that Brett Kavanaugh released this morning. Why is there nothing new?

5) According to The New York Times, Swetnick left school in 1980, and then went on to college. Swetnick claims that she “attended at least 10 house parties in the Washington area from 1981 to 1983 where the two were present.” That means that, at the time of the alleged incident(s), she was between 18 and 20 years old at the least, and that Kavanaugh and Judge were between 16 and 18 at the most. Why was she, an adult, attending high-school parties with minors?

6) Kavanaugh says that he’s never heard of the accuser. Is there anyone who can testify to the contrary? If so, how did they meet? What relationship did Kavanaugh have with her school, Gaithersburg High? Swetnick claims that she “met Judge Kavanaugh and Mr. Judge in 1980 or 1981.”

Why did she, an 18- or 19-year-old, start hanging out with Kavanaugh and Judge, who were 15 or 16, depending on the year?

7) Why would an adult go repeatedly to parties at which minors were being gang-raped, and, having figured out what was going on, resolve only to “avoid the punch”? Did Ms. Swetnick tell anybody what she had seen? Why did she keep going back?

———————-

Indeed. Swetnick’s scenario would have us believe that an adult woman attending multiple high school parties was involved in a “gang rape” and then not only chose NOT to go to the police but instead continued to attend those same parties, never told the authorities, (she still has not gone to the police perhaps because making a false statement would place her into legal trouble) and only now, more than 35 years later, is coming forward to spread these outlandish allegations. 

America has to be smarter than to put up with this nonsense.


 

REPORT: Michael Avenatti, Attorney Behind Stormy Daniels, Has Long History Of Fraud, Bankruptcy, Allegations

He’s an attorney unfettered by concerns of morality or fair play. A man who,  “…honestly believes he can get up and say or do anything he wants and there’s no repercussions.”

Yet because Michael Avenatti is the legal push behind the anti-Trump Stormy Daniels attacks, Establishment Media have up to now ignored his shady past and placed him time and again as a legal “expert” on various news program panels. Sad.

Via The Daily Caller:

With Avenatti In The Spotlight, His Own Questionable Past Emerges

…Avenatti’s past is littered with lawsuits, jilted business partners and bankruptcy filings. People who have worked with the lawyer described him to TheDCNF as ruthless, greedy and unbothered by ethical questions.

…David Nold, a Seattle attorney representing several Tully’s vendors, filed a complaint against Avenatti with the California State Bar on March 26, accusing him of fraud.

“In essence, he bought a company out of bankruptcy and then used it for a ‘pump and dump’ scheme to deprive federal and state taxing authorities of millions of dollars,” Nold claimed.

Those who have worked with Avenatti describe an individual obsessed with fame and willing to use unethical methods to win a case.

“He honestly believes he can get up and say or do anything he wants and there’s no repercussions — largely there’s not,” said one individual who has worked with Avenatti in the past.

“I know this guy; he doesn’t care about anybody but himself. He loves the attention. It’s his whole lifestyle.”

…Yet Avenatti hasn’t limited his career to law. Outside of experimenting in artisanal coffee, he’s also dabbled in professional car racing.

This strategy, according to those who know him, helps Avenatti project an image of success, even if his ventures like Eagan O’Malley & Avenatti, LLP — which eventually filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2017 — aren’t successful.

Two other lawyers associated with that firm have cut off business dealings with Avenatti, who now appears to be a solo practitioner.

——————-

All of the above (and more) are well known regarding Mr. Avaenatti’s shady past. CNN has all but made him a regularly paid contributor over the last few months. Why haven’t these news organizations shared this past with their viewers? Why the deception and cover-up? Their entire association with the disgraced attorney once again confirms all of the fake news complaints so often leveled against them.

Michael Avenatti is an attention-seeking sycophant who his own colleagues have dubbed unethical. Former firms have dropped their association with him. High-profile names have sued him. Fellow attorneys have accused him of fraud.

If the Establishment Media were more honest they would be questioning every word coming out of Avenatti’s mouth and largely ignoring everything he says.

Instead, it appears the American people will have to be the ones to condemn Avenatti and the media machine that created him.


 

SMH: Stormy Daniel’s Attorney Worked For Barack Obama’s White House Chief Of Staff

The Establishment Media is working double-time to try and make something of the sordid Stormy Daniel allegations that she had a brief affair with Donald Trump ten years ago. The porn star actress is being represented by Michael Avenatti, an attorney who once worked for Barack Obama’s White House Chief of Staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Yup – you read that right.

Exclusive Stormy Daniels Attorney Has Deep Ties To The Democratic Party Joe Biden and Rahm Emanuel

The Stormy Daniel Affair has received a ton of press this week, her attorney has had multiple media appearances. We have found her attorney Michael Avenatti has deep ties to Rahm Emanuel and Joe Biden.

According to Avenatti Bio, he is 47, worked at a political opposition and media firm, The Research Group, run by Rahm Emanuel (later Barack Obama’s White House chief of staff) and took part in more than 150 campaigns in 42 states, including Joe Biden’s U.S. Senate campaign. 

It was also in 2006 that Avenatti settled a suit with Trump and producer Mark Burnett, alleging they’d lifted one of his clients’ ideas for the hit NBC show “The Apprentice.” That case, filed on behalf of Velocity Entertainment Group, ended with a settlement for an amount that was never disclosed, according to the Associated Press.

Trump isn’t the only reality star Avenatti has dragged into a courtroom. In 2007, he filed a $10 million defamation suit against Paris Hilton on behalf of actress Zeta Graff, who alleged Hilton planted negative stories about her in the New York Post. Hilton settled that case for an undisclosed sum.
