Stormy Daniels Testifies About CNN Permanent Guest Michael Avenatti Swindling Her Out of Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars

Avenatti was broke and in debt and unable to make rent or payroll, so he did what any lawyer or Permanent CNN guest would do: He just stole the money from his clients.

Daniels got a big book contract. The book, by the way, sold very few copies; leftwing hitjob books never do, and yet these leftwing book publishers keep serving up the seven figure contracts. Almost as if they're not contracts made with an economic return in mind, but are made for purposes of advancing a political interest while evading campaign donation laws...

At any rate, the publisher kept sending the checks to Avenatti -- who kept telling Daniels that they hadn't sent the checks.

He'd cashed them himself and used them to pay his expenses -- rent, payroll, and debt.

During her three hours of testimony, Daniels talked the jury through how she repeatedly tried to get the second and third payments of her $800,000 book contract for her memoir, 'Full Disclosure', which was published in October 2018 by St Martin's press.


Prosecutors claimed that Avenatti convinced her literary agent to send him the second payment of $148,000 which he sent on to her a month later after using it to pay his law firm's bills and payroll.

It is alleged that Avenatti received the third payment, also of $148,000, and never gave Daniels a dime.

Daniels said that in September 2018 she was so angry that the second payment had not been made she messaged Avenatti: 'I didn't get paid today. I am not f****** happy. They are in breach of contract', referring to St. Martin's Press.

Daniels said she was 'confused and extremely irritated' that the payment was late.

That same day Avenatti told her that the publishers had mailed a check to his office and that it would be paid.

Over the subsequent weeks Daniels grew increasingly frustrated when the third payment was delayed as well, even though she turned in the book manuscript.

Daniels' patience began to ran out in late 2018 and she messaged Avenatti that the publishers were being 'a******' and acting like 'd****'

Prosecutors talked Daniels through dozens of text messages she sent to Avenatti in late 2018 and early 2019 begging him for updates about the book.

Sobelman repeatedly asked Daniels whether Avenatti ever mentioned in these messages that not only had he received the payment but had already spent it.

With venom in her voice, Daniels replied that he never did.

Avenatti told her that he was getting serious with St. Martin's and threatening them with legal action. He was really Fighting For Her, as hard as Conservative, Inc. and the GOPe Fights For You.

Oh, and while Daniels was begging for Avenatti to give her her money, Avenatti was meanwhile still fundraising off of her -- for a second secret legal defense fund -- without her knowledge.

Daniels' relationship with Avenatti came under strain when her fans messaged her that there was a second legal defense fund raising money for her that she didn't know about.

Avenatti smoothed things over and she agreed to put out a statement he suggested to her.

Daniels' own financial state worsened -- she was "trapped" in a house with an ex-husband she was trying to get away from -- and Avenatti kept telling her those big ol' meanies at St. Martin's just wouldn't cough up the cash.

And then he claimed they wanted to pay her a "settlement" of less than their contracted agreement -- this is obviously Avenatti himself negotating with her, looking for a way he can pay her less money in exchange for the hundreds of thousands he took from her.


The jury heard that Avenatti messaged Daniels the low sales numbers for her book: Between October 2018 and January 2019 it sold just 24,000 hard copies and 9,278 ebooks.

Daniels told the court that her contract with St. Martin's Press was not dependent on book sales - she got paid anyway.

So Avenatti is trying to use her low book sales, and this fictitious pressure from St. Martin's Press to accept a "settlement," to get her to accept, say, $75,000, in lieu of the $300,000 or so of her checks that he's deposited into his own account.

But she doesn't go for it. Whores are flinty, especially about money.

Daniels told the jury she told Avenatti: 'Hell no!' to the deal.

By February 13 Daniels had had enough and texted Avenatti: 'F*** them', referring to her publishers, who she still believed were withholding her third payment.

Daniels told Avenatti she wanted to sue St Martin's Press and told him: 'Now. Find my f****** money'.

Avenatti replied: 'Word!!!!!!'

Oh yeah, he's totally in her corner on this one.

In related news, I just emailed Mitch McConnell about using government coercion to pressure Tech Monopolies to not censor people, given that the left was using government coercion to pressure them to censor people.

His response? "Word!!!!"

So he's on our side, guys. Expect some action on this issue!

Finally Daniels contacted the publishers directly -- and they provided her proof they'd been paying her -- or, rather, Avenatti -- all along. In fact, one payment had been made early.


Daniels told the jury that Avenatti had 'lied to me almost every day for five months.'

She sent him a screenshot of the bank transfers proving everything as a 'mic drop.'

Daniels told the jury she wanted to tell Avenatti: 'I am tired of your lies. Just stop. Come clean.'

Avenatti is acting as his own attorney and is cross-examining Daniels. He is attempting to impeach her testimony by asking her about some paranormal TV "documentary" show she's hosting, in which she claims to speak to a ghost that inhabits a doll.


So she's now lying on the daily as part of her job. I guess, sure, you'd bring that up to impeach a witness' credibility.

But... this guy was her lawyer and she's got him dead to rights. It's so creepy and nasty.

Oh, and I guess NeverTrump can drop their bullshit about the unimpeachable word of Ms. Stephanie Clifford, now. Doll says she's been known to shade the truth a scoetch.

If convicted, Avenatti could face 22 years in prison. Which, coincidentally, is the total combined time he spent being interviewed on CNN, MSNBC, and various leftwing propaganda organs from 2017 to 2019.
