Joe Biden endorsed by Michael Avenatti after launching 2020 bid: 'He has my enthusiastic support'

Joe Biden announced his campaign for president today with much fanfare from the media. But he also got something else that he probably wasn’t expecting (or wanting): “I am extremely happy that @JoeBiden has decided to enter the race. He offers Dems the very best chance in 2020, especially in key states. He has the fight, intelligence and fortitude to beat Trump and begin to make America, America again.

The nation’s two most famous legal frauds now face charges related to an extortion scheme.

Much like Avenatti, Geragos never met a camera he didn’t love, and now the pair are finally facing their comeuppance in criminal court. Between Attorney General William Barr effectively exonerating Trump of impeachable offenses and Avenatti finally facing criminal charges, what’s the true cherry on top for the best 24 hours of Trump’s presidency, if not his entire life? Geragos is also an official legal an

Michael Avenatti tweeted Thursday evening: "Neither I nor R. Farrow did anything wrong or illegal with the financial info relating to Cohen’s crimes (the courts have found that the [federal Bank Secrecy Act] does not apply ... And if we did (we didn’t), then every reporter in America would be jailed and unable to do their job." Neither I nor R. Farrow did anything wrong or illegal with the financial info relating to Cohen’s crimes (the courts have found that the BSA does not apply - see below). And if we did (we didn’t), then every reporter in America would be jailed and unable to do their job. — Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) February 21, 2019 At the time of the disclosures, Avenatti was locked in a legal battle with Cohen over a $130,000 payment to Daniels in the days leading up to the 2016 presidential election. The payment was made in exchange for Daniels' silence about an alleged sexual encounter with the married Trump that took place
