The Stormy Daniel Affair has received a ton of press this week, her attorney has had multiple media appearances. We have found her attorney Michael Avenatti has deep ties to Rahm Emanuel and Joe Biden.
According to Avenatti Bio, he is 47, worked at a political opposition and media firm, The Research Group, run by Rahm Emanuel (later Barack Obama’s White House chief of staff) and took part in more than 150 campaigns in 42 states, including Joe Biden’s U.S. Senate campaign. “
It was also in 2006 that Avenatti settled a suit with Trump and producer Mark Burnett, alleging they’d lifted one of his clients’ ideas for the hit NBC show “The Apprentice.” That case, filed on behalf of Velocity Entertainment Group, ended with a settlement for an amount that was never disclosed, according to the Associated Press.
Trump isn’t the only reality star Avenatti has dragged into a courtroom. In 2007, he filed a $10 million defamation suit against Paris Hilton on behalf of actress Zeta Graff, who alleged Hilton planted negative stories about her in the New York Post. Hilton settled that case for an undisclosed sum.
