CNN’s Favorite Con Artist Michael Avenatti Indicted For Stealing Stormy Daniels’ Book Advance

Federal prosecutors in New York charged attorney and alleged con artist Michael Avenatti on Wednesday for stealing from and forging the signature of his former client, Stephanie Gregory Clifford, who uses the name Stormy Daniels. This indictment comes on the heels of separate fraud and extortion charges filed against Avenatti in March.

Avenatti allegedly stole the $297,500 Daniels was owed for a book advance from her literary agent. The indictment says he did so by sending Daniel’s agent a “fraudulent and unauthorized letter” with a forgery of his client’s signature and instructions to send the money to a bank account controlled solely by Avenatti.

Avenatti then allegedly used the money to pay his personal and business expenses, including: payroll for employees at his law firm, payroll for employees at his coffee business, a monthly $3,900 car payment for his leased Ferrari, airfares, dry cleaning, hotels, restaurants, and car services.

Daniels says she did not sign or authorize any such letter, and that she was not even aware of such a letter’s existence. When she asked Avenatti about her missing payments, he allegedly lied to his client, telling her that he was still trying to get the money from the publisher.

According to the indictment, Avenatti’s retainer agreement with Daniels states that he could receive fees for negotiating her book contract. However, Avenatti had reportedly told Daniels he would not accept any payment relating to her book.

Before the charges were announced on Wednesday morning, Avenatti said via his now-private Twitter account that, “No monies relating to Ms. Daniels were ever misappropriated or mishandled. She received millions of dollars worth of legal services and we spent huge sums in expenses.”

In March, Avenatti was charged by federal lawyers in the states of New York and California for wire fraud against clients, and for trying to exhort Nike for $20 million.

Daniels ended her relationship with Avenatti last November after the onscreen prostitute told The Daily Beast that Avenatti had sued President Trump for defamation against her wishes and was fundraising off her name without her permission.

At a speaking event in New York this March, Daniels hinted that legal action was on the horizon. “My new attorney said today, ‘Things are about to get real interesting.’ Sit tight, ladies, it’s about to get real f–king good,” she said.

    FOX GUEST TODAY SAYS 41% OF COLLEGE STUDENTS NEVER FINISH. ARE MOST DISILLUSIONED BY COMMUNIST PROFESSORS OR JUST RAN OUT OF MONEY?

    MY OPINION. THE CATHOLIC CHURCH SHOULD PUT THEIR UNIVERSITY MONEY INTO FREE PRE-SCHOOL AND GRAMMAR SCHOOLS FOR ALL CATHOLIC KIDS. VOUCHERS FOR ALL AMERICAN KIDS. IT IS THE KIDS THAT BRING THE PARENTS WHO CAN’T AFFORD A CATHOLIC EDUCATION. THE BONUS WOULD BE FULLER CHURCHES AND MORE CEREMONY’S.

    THE FIRST US MONUMENT THE DEMOCRAT RINO RAT COMMUNISTS TOOK DOWN WAS NOT A REBEL SOLDIER. IT WAS THE LAW GOD GAVE TO MOSES.
    THAT IS WHY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK DOWN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS AND DELETED THE WORD NOT.

    WHEN YOU GET THE NEWS YOU NEVER GET THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM. JOHN WALKER LIND THE TALIBAN MURDERER CAPTURED AS A TRAITOR TO THE USA GETS 20 YEARS INSTEAD OF A FIRING SQUAD. THEN HE GETS EARLY PAROLE. BUT WE NEVER GET THE NAME OF THE OTHER TRAITOR WHO GAVE HIM THE EARLY PAROLE

    .SGT EVAN VELA IN COMBAT IN IRAQ GETS 15 YEARS IN PRISON FOR OBEYING A SHOOT TO KILL ORDER WILL DO MORE TIME THAN LIND. VELA’S WIFE AND TWO KIDS LIVE A LIFE OF POVERTY AND SHAME HAVING LOST ALL THEIR BENEFITS. WHO SPEAKS FOR THEM? OBAMA BIN LENIN OUR FIRST COMMUNIST PRESIDENT AND HANOI JOHN KERRY PAY THE IRANIANS 157 BILLION NOT TO BUILD THE SOUTHERN WALL BUT TO NUKE THE USA. NO ONE TELLS US HOW THE MONEY WAS TRANSFERRED AND WAS IT USED TO BUY THE CLINTON URANIUM FROM PUTIN. WAS ALL THE MONEY TRANSFERRED OR IS THERE ANY LEFT THAT WE COULD SEIZE?

    NEW WORLD ORDER CORPORATIONS WITH NO LOYALTY TO THE USA ARE UPSET BECAUSE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS EXACTING A 25% TARIFF ON SLAVE LABOR PROFITS. THEIR ONLY ALTERNATIVE IS TO BRING BACK MANUFACTURING TO THE USA AND SAVE THE 25%. THEY CLAIM THE PUBLIC WILL PAY THE 25%. NO THEY WON’T. THEY WILL BUY AMERICAN KNOWING THEY ARE HELPING THEIR FELLOW AMERICANS EARN A LIVING. CHINA IS NOT GOING TO PRICE ITSELF OUT OF THE AMERICAN MARKET. THEY WILL ABSORB WHAT THEY HAVE TO ABSORB. ONCE AMERICAN COMPANIES LEAVE CHINA FOR BARGAIN COUNTRIES IT IS NOT GOOD FOR THE CHINESE ECONOMY.

    TWO PARTY’S LEFT. THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT RINO RAT PARTY AND 65 MILLION TRUMPETEERS WHO WILL DOUBLE BY 2020. NO WAY TO GO BUT UP. AMASH AND ROMNEY AND THEIR ILK HAVE ONE GOAL DESTROY TRUMP AND THE COUNTRY.
