Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer Michael Avenatti Arrested For Felony Domestic Violence

Lawyer Michael Avenatti

Michael Avenatti, the celebrity lawyer of Donald Trump-accuser Stormy Daniels and Brett Kavanaugh-accuser Julie Swetnick, was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of felony domestic violence.

Police had responded to a domestic violence incident Tuesday and took a report, but Avenatti was taken into custody Wednesday, the official said. Police arrived, spoke with Avenatti for "5 to 10 minutes", then took him into custody, the outlet reports. They also reported that her face was "swollen and bruised" when she was filing the report. The statement said that her 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".

She claims to have had a tryst with Trump in 2006 and has sought in court to nullify a $US130,000 "hush payment" deal she struck with Trump's long-time fixer Michael Cohen before the 2016 presidential election.

Markets Right Now: Technology stocks lead US market lower
U.S. stocks fell for a third straight day Monday, with technology leading the way lower amid worries about waning iPhone demand. Shares of Goldman Sachs plunged 7.46%, dogged by concerns of the company's connection to the 1MDB bribery scandal in Malaysia.

No one was available for comment at Avenatti's law office in Newport Beach, south of Los Angeles.

The Vermont Democratic Party issued a press release Wednesday evening saying that Avenatti's scheduled appearances in Burlington and White River Junction are canceled. She returned Wednesday to retrieve her stuff apparently after having filed a complaint and notified police ahead of time in case the situation devolved again. I am not going to be intimidated from stopping what I am doing. TMZ initially reported that the alleged incident involved Avenatti's estranged wife, before later describing the individual more generally as a woman. It is not clear how Storie-Avenatti's statement to Buzzfeed might change this story.
