    Heat on Stormy Daniels' lawyer over past business dealings, bank record disclosure

    Heat on Stormy Daniels' lawyer over past business dealings, bank record disclosure


    Recently, a complaint was filed against him to the California State Bar Association regarding his role in purchasing Tully's Coffee several years ago through an entity called Global Baristas.

    The complaint, first obtained and reported by The Seattle Times, was filed by attorney David Nold of Bellevue, Wash. The complaint says Avenatti and Global Baristas faced a lien for unpaid federal taxes worth roughly $5 million, claiming taxes were withheld from workers' paychecks but not paid to the government. The complaint from Nold, as posted by The Seattle Times, called into question Avenatti's “fitness to practice law.”

    Since the coffee chain purchase, Tully's has shuttered its stores (though the closures were described as temporary) as Global Baristas has dealt with numerous lawsuits.

    The paper trail for that deal is maddeningly complex.


    And then, there's the question as to who is funding Avenatti's campaign againt Trump, etal ....

    Avenatti says donations pay his fees in Stormy Daniels case

    And of course ... there's the issue of free publicity and exposure Avenatti is receiving from MSNBC and CNN ......

    CNN, MSNBC Have Given Stormy Daniels Lawyer Michael Avenatti $175 Million in Earned Media Time



    So .... just how different are Cohen and Avenatti?

    Avenatti is out there killing it. The dude is on fire. Cohen and Rudy look like stooges. The joke I heard today was “I hired Rudy to fight my traffic ticket, and he plead it down to 1st degree murder”. LOL.

    Well, Avenatti appears to be a competent lawyer at this point. So there's that.

    The dude is tweeting up a storm. Dropping documents that nobody else seems to have.

    I have no doubt that he’s a scheister lawyer. But I’m intrigued. Dude has been bringing it.

    This is manufactured outrage.. Trump's legal action 12 years ago, if true, are a big so what. A NYC Playboy may have or not banged a porm star.

    Why does this matter? Think Bill Clinton or JFK never did that?

    IDK. Monica wasn't exactly a porn star. ;)

    As with WJC, impact to the wife and family is the bigger deal, IMO. And that's their business, not ours.

    This only matters politically if he gets caught lying about it under oath, or if campaign funds were used for the NDA payment... which was during his campaign - not twelve years ago.

    Why should he answer any questions about this?

    Who is going to put him under oath and under what authority?

    It's sad you all can't see the desperation in your actions. This is no different than obamahaving gay sex with a crack dealer in the back of a limo.

    i still can't seem to care that much about this story as it relates to Trump personally (who knows where it will go though), but think this Avenatti guy is making a huge name for himself with what he's been exposing...not surprising he already has enemies looking to take him down..

    those on the right would love him if this were directed at say Hillary Clinton, so I take what they say with a grain of salt

    that in and of itself is very interesting- he has stuff that seems on the surface to only be attainable thru Meuller's investigation

    Maybe not. Obviously just a guess but I suspect that Avenatti obtained Cohen's banking documents through discovery. A guess, but not beyond the realm of possibility that Cohen or his attorneys were sloppy when they complied with Avenatti's request for documents in the Stormy Daniels case and inadvertently provided Avenatti with all of the banking documents of Essential Consultants LLC, which by the way was the shell company that made the $130,000 payment to stormy under the NDA. When Avenatti has been asked about the source of the documents he declined to answer claiming it was protected "work product".
