In the wake of his arrest for suspected felony domestic violence, the fallout is coming fast for Michael Avenatti.
Avenatti was arrested on Wednesday after he was accused of felony domestic violence against a woman.
From Daily Caller:
“We’re told her face was ‘swollen and bruised’ with ‘red marks’ on both cheeks,” TMZ reported.
We’re told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, “I can’t believe you did this to me. I’m going to get a restraining order against you.”
We’re told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later and ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, “She hit me first.” We’re told he angrily added, “This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***.” We’re told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.
Avenatti was then taken into custody.
And now the fallout has begun. The potential 2020 candidate is now formally getting the cold shoulder from other Democrats.
The Vermont Democratic Party canceled two scheduled weekend events they had planned with the potential 2020.
“It has been widely reported by ABC News and other outlets that Michael Avenatti has been arrested in Los Angeles, California on charges of suspected felony domestic violence,” Vermont Democratic Party Communication’s Director R. Christopher Di Mezzo said in a statement to The Hill.
“The Vermont Democratic Party has canceled Mr. Avenatti’s forthcoming scheduled appearances in Vermont, and will be refunding all ticket sales,” the group said.
You mean the criminal referral for what he did in the Kavanaugh case wasn’t enough already? Guess not.
Liberal Democratic activist actress Alyssa Milano also threw Avenatti under the bus.
From Fox News:
Milano, who appeared alongside Avenatti at a protest outside the White House in July, took to Twitter on Thursday to publicly disavow the lawyer that rose to prominence defending adult film star Stormy Daniels.
“Totally disgusting. And before anyone asks me, yes, I’m disavowing Avenatti,” she wrote. “I do not care what side he’s on. #Basta.”
Basta is Avenatti’s slogan which means “enough” in Spanish and Italian.
Stormy Daniel’s response was not exactly an effusive defense either, saying that if the allegations proved true, she would be getting new representation.
But he still did have some defenders, who even after everything, weren’t willing to see him clearly, who thought the arrest a “set-up.”
