I must have missed that in the article you linked. Perhaps newer information? Or you linked to an incomplete article.
I linked to the incident and assumed people can do their own research into it.. My bad... Here is one from TMZ

http://www.tmz.com/2018/11/14/michael-avenatti-arrested-domestic-violence-stormy-daniels-attorney/

*snip*

law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after a woman filed a felony DV report. We're told her face was "swollen and bruised" with "red marks" on both cheeks.

Just some woman... Ask Karen Monahan about that outrage or any of Bill Clintons victims.. #basta
This isn't a genuine discussion point (yet) since I haven't read the woman's account. All I've read are the charges that were brought against him. But it clearly looks bad for Avenatti. His political aspirations just went up in smoke.

Hey, I'm just waiting for more details. He isn't running for anything yet so there's nothing I can say "he shouldn't be elected, seated, confirmed, etc." for.

Undoubtedly this will be tied to Kavanaugh and Trump, but Avenatti isn't getting a vote for the SC, nor was he on tape bragging about how he did what he's accused of.

As was mentioned, his political aspirations or trying to be a voice for anyone is probably gone now barring some revelation proving him innocent.

It takes someone from the right to tell the left who their 'darlings' are.

I'm fairly certain there were voices here who called him a huckster, who didn't want to give up what dirt he supposedly had on 45 & co.

But I'm glad to see the Trumpettes have finally embraced in believing women. To bad it took someone opposed to 45 to be accused of domestic violence to make it happen. :cool:

Oh, no no no -- he was our darling! Sez so right in the thread title. :p
Good eye! It does say exactly that! :thumbsup:


Also, OP - I seem to remember something about glass houses and throwing stones.
#basta!

Well, by your standards, the guy is fit for either the White House or the Supreme Court.

Or is pu$$y grabbing no longer en vogue?
Dang, I said putting a beat down on a woman was okay? Doesn't really sound like me but if someone random person on the Internet says it's so well then it must be...

The article says he said the woman (not his estranged wife) hit him first. If what he said is true, it could be considered self defense if he struck her back.

Did you read the article?

"TMZ initially reported Avenatti's estranged wife Lisa Storie-Avenatti filed a complaint with the Los Angeles Police Department on Wednesday that alleged an altercation at a Century City apartment building the day before left her with serious face injuries, but Storie-Avenatti, through her attorney, said it wasn't true in a statement to BuzzFeed News.
[...]
"Ms. Storie-Avenatti was not subject to any such incident on Tuesday night. Further, she was not at Mr. Avenatti’s apartment on the date that this alleged incident occurred. My client states that there has never been domestic violence in her relationship with Michael and that she has never known Michael to be physically violent toward anyone."

A quick search of Avenetti references shows two things: @raqball loves talking about him, and most of the PRSI liberals have been less than thrilled about the man.

Or, as I put it:

...

Avanetti isn't particularly credible, but Breitbart makes him look like the Oxford English Dictionary by comparison.
...

Right. The shaddddddy dude is Stormy Daniels' lawyer, not the guy who had sex with a porn star while he was married and then tried to bury his relationship with payments from potential campaign funds through his own shady lawyer.

Avanetti is all kinds of nope, but look at the people he's working against: Russian spies, mob-wannabes, Trump's obviously sociopathic sons.

Can we just put all of these people on some remote island?
