The real question is not how Stormy Daniels Lawyer Michael Avenatti got Cohen’s bank records, but rather how he got hooked up with Stormy in the first place.
Most people don’t know that Avenatti actually worked for Rahm Emanuel for a stretch. The job?
Digging up dirt on Rahm’s political enemies at Rahm’s opposition research firm.
Rahm is nothing if not an opposition research master and is almost as good as Trump at using political leverage.
So are we to think this is all happenstance? That Stormy just happened to find Avenatti and the lawyer waived his massive fees for a porn star?
Laura Ingraham for one is not buying it and just smacked him hard and sent him running back to L.A. with his tail between his legs.
Ingraham mocked Avenatti for issuing “mistruths” as well as his claim the “fact” that the FBI wiretapped Cohen leading up to the raids.
“There has been quite a few- have been quite a few mistruths stated by Michael Avenatti, who was brought onto some of these other networks, as almost like an analyst. They almost forget that he’s representing a client. And instead, he says something and then the chyron’s, Trump, Cohen Bombshell, Russian oligarch’ without almost looking into the details,” Ingraham told the panel. “It’s wild.”
Fox News contributor Byron York expressed skepticism about the importance of Cohen’s ties to the oligarch since Robert Mueller‘s investigators “farmed” it over to the attorneys in the Southern District of New York. Ingraham added that the company in question was “American-led” and “American-run” and joked that if you ordered a “White Russian” at a restaurant, you’re “part of the collusion.”
“I think it hurts the case,” Ingraham continued. “I think it’s really shortsighted for the media to take almost everything this guy says as gospel and I think they are embarrassing themselves every night on this.”
Correct. The media has been exposed for all to see and at this point, only Fox News is even trying to be fair.
Avenatti is not appearing on Fox News and Laura has asked him repeatedly. One must wonder if he is afraid of getting the hard questions, unlike the softballs he gets on MSNBC.
