Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

A federal grand jury in Manhattan indicted celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti on Wednesday in two alleged schemes, charging him with fraud and aggravated identity theft involving his former client, Stormy Daniels, and with attempting to extort more than $20 million from sportswear giant Nike. Avenatti was charged with having stolen "a significant portion" of Daniels' advance for her book contract, according to court papers, and used that money to pay employees of his law firm and a coffee business he owned. Daniels isn't named in the indictment, but she is the individual referred to as "Victim-1," according to a person familiar with the matter. In all, Avenatti stole "approximately $300,000" from Daniels, the indictment states, and has failed to repay her half of that sum.

That's how to present evidence and bring charges against a criminal. Notice how quickly his 15 minutes went by?

Compare that to the hoax witch hunt for Trumps broom and ruby slippers is going.

The Mueller report documents many instances of obstruction of justice which is still ongoing.
He's not guilty of something, he's guilty of many somethings.
