Federal prosecutors are expected Thursday to announce three dozen more criminal indictments against celebrity lawyer and #Resistance bae Michael Avenatti.
Avenatti, best known for representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in her litigation against President Donald Trump, was arrested in March for attempting to blackmail and extort Nike for $20 million. Shortly after his arrest in New York City, the Department of Justice announced he was also facing criminal charges in California for wire fraud and bank fraud.
Weeks later, the U.S. Attorney's office for the Central District of California has scheduled a press conference to announce further charges against Avenatti. The Internal Revenue Services will also be present at the Thursday press conference, likely indicating that Avenatti faced tax charges as well.
