How will the republic ever survive this shock.
For the life of me, I never understood the Avenatti boomlet. He was an failure as a lawyer and a failure as a crook and a failure as a fraud. Let’s face it, how many lawyers think its fine to run a fundraiser for a client…and not give them the money. Okay. That wasn’t a very fair question given that we’re talking about lawyers. How many lawyers have filed lawsuits on behalf of a client when the client didn’t authorize the lawsuit?
Avenatti let his dislike of Trump…or more probably his jealousy…lead him into perilous territory that resulted in the Senate Judiciary Committee sending a criminal referral to Department of Justice based on his behavior during the Kavanaugh hearing.
But Avenatti apparently took his candidacy serious, right up until his latest domestic violence arrest:
Avenatti’s presidential exploration wasn’t just hot air, he formed a political action committee, purchased a voter database used by the Democratic Party, and worked with a former adviser to Hillary Clinton. Avenatti made appearances in the early presidential primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire, advocating for a strategy of direct and merciless attacks on Trump to defeat him for a second term.
“What I fear for this Democratic Party that I love so much is that we have a tendency to bring nail clippers to a gunfight,” Avenatti said during a speech in Iowa in August. “When they go low, I say, we hit harder.”
Avenatti out! It’s not even 2019 and already the Dem field for President 2020 is shrinking. One down, 389 to go.
