Fake news CNN is awash in scandals.
The pro-Democrat Party cable network is facing another black eye.
And that’s because this CNN star was thrown in jail for one jaw-dropping reason.
For a period in 2018, Michael Avenatti was the biggest star on CNN.
Avenatti represented porn star Stormy Daniels in her quest to be released from a non-disclosure agreement Daniels signed when allegedly accepted $130,000 in hush money from former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen during the 2016 election.
Daniels alleged a one night affair with Trump back in 2006 and Avenatti fought to free Daniels from her agreement so she could tell her story in hopes of ending Trump’s Presidency.
As the Russian collusion hoax unraveled, fake news media outlets like CNN pinned their hopes on Avenatti to force Trump from office by trying to fabricate a campaign finance violation on the part of Trump for paying Daniels and then not reporting it as a campaign expenditure.
To promote the idea Trump was a felon and needed to be removed from office, fake news CNN essentially turned their network over to Avenatti.
Over the course of one year Avenatti appeared on fake news CNN 121 times out of his eye-popping 254 guest spots.
Avenatti was so ever-present that some pundits – including fake news CNN’s chief Democrat Party activist Brian Stelter – considered Avenatti a serious Presidential contender.
That all ended when Avenatti was indicted in New York and California for a series of alleged financial crimes.
If a jury convicted Avenatti, the celebrity lawyer faced over 300 years in prison.
A judge released Avenatti on bail.
But Avenatti’s days a free man ended when federal authorities arrested Avenatti in California.
Members of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California arrested Avenatti at a hearing Avenatti attended at the State Bar Court in California.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California is prosecuting Avenatti on a separate matter from the charges Avenatti already faces in Los Angeles for allegedly scamming a client out of an $840,000 settlement and taking the money for himself.
These charges ended all talk of Avenatti as a Presidential candidate.
And it also signaled the definitive end of Avenatti as a fake news media hero.
Avenatti’s star began to dim after the Stormy Daniels allegations failed to produce the smoking gun to end the Trump Presidency.
Prosecutors in the Southern District of New York forced Cohen to plead guilty to a legally dubious campaign finance violation, but also failed to indict anyone in the Trump Organization or President Trump himself.
When the Daniels allegations fizzled, Avenatti’s former friends in the fake news had little use for him.
Avenatti’s cable bookings dried up as the fake news media moved on to other fantasies of forcing Trump from office or throwing the President in jail.
Now Avenatti’s story could end with a lengthy jail sentence.
