The chickens have come home to roost for attorney Michael Avenatti, who has been arrested and faces multiple federal charges of wire fraud and extortion. 

The former lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels is being prosecuted in two states for the separate cases.

In the Southern District of New York, Avenatti faces charges of trying to extort Nike, Inc. for tens of millions of dollars by making threats that he would release allegedly damaging information about Nike.

It was less than an hour after Avenatti made this tweet that he would expose the firm that charges were announced.

Nike alleges that Avenatti said that he would abandon the news conference if Nike paid an unidentified client $1.5 million while hiring Avenatti and another lawyer between $15-$25 million to conduct an internal investigation.

Attorneys for Nike shared that Avenatti threatened he could “go take $10 billion off your client’s market cap…I’m not f***ing around.”

Also, the second lawyer that was to work with Avenatti? None other than Mark Geragos, the celebrity criminal defense lawyer who represented Jussie Smollett and Colin Kaepernick.

All of that is just in New York. In Los Angeles, CA Avenatti is facing separate charges for embezzling funds from a client and defrauding a bank with faux tax returns. It sure seems karma is coming hard for the lawyer that famously failed to take on President Donald Trump.
