Michael Avenatti and Stormy Daniels have parted ways after an exhaustive media strategy that left the entire nation wishing they would both just go away.
After abusing the public trust for nearly a year, Avenatti received what some consider karma when he was arrested and later fought a bankruptcy case.
The house of cards has crumbled and Humpty Dumpty ain’t going back together again, but we would be remiss if we didn’t at least acknowledge what could have made Avenatti a formidable foe for Trump – a common sense most Dems lack.
Avenatti knew his skeletons were about to come back to haunt him so he quit the race before they could so serious damage. Contrast that with Hillary, who was so arrogant she thought she could hide hers, Kamala, Bernie Sanders, etc.
Everything comes out when you run and with the Dems laying off each other in the primary, effectively burying their skeletons, Trump will crucify whoever gets to face in the general.
The only worse than an untested candidate is an untested candidate with a lot of skeletons in their past.
From Breitbart: Television lawyer Michael Avenatti announced Tuesday that he will no longer represent pornographic actress Stormy Daniels.
“On February 19, we informed Stormy Daniels in writing that we were terminating our legal representation of her for various reasons that we can disclose publicly due to attorney-client privilege,” Avenatti said in a statement shared to Twitter. “This was not a decision we made lightly and it came only after lengthy discussion, thought and deliberation, as well as consultation with other professionals,” he added. “We wish Stormy all the best.”
In a separate statement, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said she has hired a new attorney and requested he review all her legal matters. “I have retained Clark Brewster as my personal lawyer and have asked him and his firm to review all legal matters involving me. Upon completion of Mr. Brewster’s review and further consultation with me, I anticipate Mr. Brewster will serve as my primary counsel on all legal issues,” she tweeted.
Daniels alleges she had a one-night affair with President Trump in 2006. Last year, she sued the president with the help of Avenatti seeking to break a non-disclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 election about the tryst as part of a $130,000 hush money settlement. President Trump has denied the affair.
