Report Shows Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti Has Been Living LARGE While Not Paying Taxes

Michael Avenatti was recently arrested on extortion charges and is facing real jail time if found guilty. A new report shows that despite allowing his law firm to go broke, he has been living like a multi-millionaire.

The Los Angeles Times has the story:

Michael Avenatti’s life of luxury hangs by a thread as IRS comes calling

Long before he was Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, well before he was accused of trying to shake down Nike for millions of dollars, Michael Avenatti was an Orange County plaintiff’s attorney living a luxe life adorned with fast cars, high-end properties and expensive jewelry.

He flew in a private jet, lived in a mansion overlooking the Pacific and rang up six-figure receipts at Neiman Marcus and other sumptuous retailers….

He also has filed no tax returns since then for Avenatti & Associates, a corporation that has recorded $38 million in deposits, the government says. Avenatti, who owns the firm, has often used it to pay personal expenses, including $176,500 to Exclusive Resorts, which bills itself as “the world’s elite private vacation club.”

“During these tax years, Avenatti generated substantial income and lived lavishly,” Remoun Karlous, an IRS criminal investigator, wrote in his sworn statement.

Among other big-ticket items: $217,000 at Neiman Marcus; $117,000 at Jewelers on Time, a luxury watch store; $277,236 to Porsche dealers; $100,000-a-month rent for a waterfront house on Lido Isle in Newport Beach; $39,762 in Ferrari lease payments; $123,825 in rent on his apartment in a luxury high-rise in Century City.

The Los Angeles Times column leaves out one important aspect of Avenatti’s recent history. The role he played in the Democrats’ effort to block Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The report makes no mention, however, of the role Avenatti played in the controversy surrounding Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court in 2018. Just as Kavanaugh’s nomination appeared in peril after Christine Blasey Ford testified that he sexually assaulted her in high school, Avenatti aggressively inserted himself into the situation by promoting a series of outlandish allegations of sexual misconduct, including gang rape, against Kavanaugh.

The national media dutifully gave Avenatti copious air time to discuss the new unsubstantiated allegations, including those of his client, Julie Swetnik, who had a dubious legal past, and ultimately walked back most of her accusations in an interview with NBC News, including the alleged gang rape, contradicting the sworn statement she delivered to Congress.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) eventually referred Avenatti and Swetnik to the Justice Department for criminal investigation into “a potential conspiracy to provide materially false statements to Congress and obstruct a congressional committee investigation.”

Avenatti probably won’t be helping Democrats with anything anymore. He has become completely toxic.
