by Jeffrey M. Gresio:

Around and around and around she goes. Where she’ll stop, no one knows.

Besides being the lawyer for the now infamous, adult film star, Stormy Daniels, and a media attention hound, who is Michael Avenatti?

In addition, also, to being a thorn and a prick in the backside of President Trump, what other underlying motivation could their be for Michael Avenatti?

First let’s look at a brief bio of Mr. Avenatti.  From Wikipedia :

Born on February 16, 1971, in Sacramento, California, Avenatti spent his early childhood in Colorado and Utah. Avenatti moved with his family to Chesterfield, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, in 1982, where he attended Parkway Central High School.

After graduating in 1989, Avenatti attended Saint Louis University for a year before transferring to the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated with a B.A. in political science in 1996. In 1999, he earned a Juris Doctor from George Washington University Law School in Washington, D.C., where he worked with Professor Jonathan Turley on constitutional issues relating to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

He graduated Order of the Coif and first in his class. In 2003, George Washington University Law School established the Michael J. Avenatti Award for Excellence in Pre-Trial and Trial Advocacy, an annual award given to the member of the graduating Juris Doctor class who demonstrates excellence in pre-trial and trial advocacy.

Avenatti also received George Washington University’s prestigious Alumni Recognition Award in 2010.

He has appeared on broadcast and print media as a commentator on a range of legal issues and has represented parties in a number of lawsuits that have gained international media attention, including cases brought against the National Football League, various celebrity defendants, high-ranking business executives, and Fortune 100 companies.

He is also a professional race car driver, having participated in races across the United States and Europe.

Avenatti is best known for suing President Donald Trump on behalf of adult film star Stormy Daniels in an attempt to void a non-disclosure agreement she had signed.

While in college and later in law school, Avenatti worked at The Research Group, [a political opposition research] and media firm run by Rahm Emanuel (later White House Chief of Staff for President Barack Obama, and Mayor of Chicago). (Interesting coincidence.)

Avenatti worked on over 150 Democratic and Republican campaigns in 42 states while studying at George Washington University.

After law school, Avenatti worked at O’Melveny & Myers in Los Angeles, California, alongside Daniel M. Petrocelli, who previously represented the Ron Goldmanfamily in its case against O.J. Simpson. He assisted Petrocelli on multiple legal matters, including the representation of singer Christina Aguilera and litigation surrounding the movie K-19: The Widowmaker, and worked extensively for Don Henley and Glenn Frey of the musical group the Eagles, including in a suit brought by former band mate Don Felderagainst the group and Irving Azoff.

Avenatti later joined Greene Broillet & Wheeler, a Los Angeles boutique law firm. While there, he handled a number of high-profile cases, including a $10 million defamation case against Paris Hilton, settled an idea-theft lawsuit relating to the show The Apprentice and against producers Mark Burnett and Donald Trump, and a $40 million embezzlement lawsuit involving KPMG.

In 2007, Avenatti formed the law firm Eagan Avenatti, LLP (formerly known as Eagan O’Malley & Avenatti, LLP) with offices in Newport Beach, Los Angeles and San Francisco, California.

He has since appeared on 60 Minutes three times in connection with cases he has handled.

Avenatti has also served as lead counsel on a number of historically large cases, including an April 2017 $454 million verdict after a jury trial in Federal Court in Los Angeles in a fraud case against Kimberly-Clark and Halyard Health, later reduced to a $21.7 million verdict upon appeal, an $80.5 million class-action settlement against Service Corporation International, a $41 million jury verdict against KPMG, and a $39 million malicious prosecution settlement.

(So far so good, right?)

In 2013 Avenatti formed a company, Global Baristas, to buy Seattle-based Tully’s Coffee out of bankruptcy.

Avenatti first formed a partnership with actor Patrick Dempsey, but Dempsey later backed away from the venture after a short legal battle that resulted in a settlement.

Since 2015, Global Baristas has been named in more than 50 lawsuits in state and federal courts for breach of contract, unpaid bills, and unpaid taxes.

In 2015, Avenatti prevailed against the National Football League (NFL) following a jury trial in Dallas. He later pursued a class-action suit on behalf of fans who showed up for Super Bowl XLV with tickets that didn’t correspond to actual seats but the courts in Texas declined to certify the class.

In 2016, Avenatti filed another class action lawsuit against the NFL, this time on behalf of ticket-holders to the annual Hall of Fame Game, which was cancelled a few hours before kickoff.

In 2017, a Florida man named Gerald Tobin alleged Avenatti failed to pay him $28,700 for private investigatory work. As a result, Avenatti’s firm was abruptly forced into bankruptcy.

In various news reports, including work done by CNN, Tobin was found to be an ex-con with four decades of convictions and jail time and not a licensed investigator. Tobin’s claim forced Avenatti into bankruptcy which caused Avenatti to cancel a deposition in an unrelated lawsuit days later, raising the question of collusion between Avenatti and Tobin. The issue was resolved when the pair entered into a Non-Disclosure Agreement, and Avenatti paid Tobin the $28,700.

In 2018, Avenatti’s law firm was subjected to a $10 million judgment in U.S. bankruptcy court.

Avenatti has also defaulted on a $440,000 judgment in back taxes, penalties, and interest that he was personally obligated to pay under another bankruptcy settlement. The U.S. Attorney’s office asserted in court that a motion seeking payment would soon be filed against Avenatti.

Eagan Avenatti had been in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings and, in December 2017, had agreed to pay $4.8 million in unpaid fees to a former partner, $2 million in back taxes, and $1 million to other creditors.

In June 2018, the former partner filed a motion in U.S. bankruptcy court asking for a lien on any and all legal fees Avenatti’s firm might collect, up to $10 million, from clients in 54 cases including his representation of Stormy Daniels.

Okay, here is where it begins to go sideways and it starts to get a little bit weird and creepy.  Remember in the bio, it mentions Avenatti is a race car driver?

In 2015 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Avenatti teamed up with Saudi Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Saud and Polish driver Jakub “Kuba” Giermaziak in the No. 66 JMW Motorsport Ferrari 458Italia, the team placing seventh in their class.

Who is Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Saud?

Born 4 June 1983
Full name: Abdulaziz bin Turki bin Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud
House: House of Saud
Father: Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud
Mother: Princess Nouf bint Fahd bin Khalid Al SaudReligionIslam

Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Saud (born 4 June 1983) is a Saudi athlete and a businessman as well as a member of the House of Saud.

Why is this fact important?

From article in Foreign Policy:
Sometimes, reality is so absurd that it outstrips anything conspiracy theorists could come up with. More than 13 years after the congressional investigation published its report into the events surrounding the 9/11 attacks, the much discussed “28 pages” on Saudi involvement in the terrorist assault, which had been held back as too sensitive to publish, have been released. As it turns out, there are 29 pages, not 28, numbered 415 through 443 in the congressional inquiry into the 9/11 attacks. And deletions on the pages — sometimes words, often whole lines — add up to the equivalent of a total of three pages. So we still are not being given the full story.

It is instantly apparent that the widely held belief for why the pages were not initially released — to prevent embarrassing the Saudi royal family — is true.

The pages are devastating:

Page 415: “While in the United States, some of the September 11 hijackers were in contact with, and received support and assistance from, individuals who may be connected to the Saudi Government.… [A]t least two of those individuals were alleged by some to be Saudi intelligence officers.”

Page 417: One of the individuals identified in the pages as a financial supporter of two of the 9/11 hijackers, Osama Bassnan, later received a “significant amount of cash” from “a member of the Saudi Royal Family” during a 2002 trip to Houston.

From a New York Post article, dated 04/12/2015:

Just 15 days before the 9/11 attacks, a well-connected Saudi family suddenly abandoned their luxury home in Sarasota, Fla., leaving behind jewelry, clothes, opulent furniture, a driveway full of cars — including a brand new Chrysler PT Cruiser — and even a refrigerator full of food.

About the only thing not left behind was a forwarding address. The occupants simply vanished without notifying their neighbors, realtor or even mail carrier.

The 3,300-square-foot home on Escondito Circle belonged to Esam Ghazzawi, a Saudi adviser to the nephew of then-King Fahd. But at the time, it was occupied by his daughter and son-in-law, who beat a hasty retreat back to Saudi Arabia just two weeks before the attacks after nearly a six-year stay here.

Neighbors took note of the troubling coincidence and called the FBI, which opened an investigation that led to the startling discovery that at least one “family member” trained at the same flight school as some of the 9/11 hijackers in nearby Venice, Florida..

The investigation into the prominent Saudi family’s ties to the hijackers started on Sept. 19, 2001, and remained active for several years. It was led by the FBI’s Tampa field office but also involved the bureau’s field offices in New York and Washington, and also the Southwest Florida Domestic Security Task Force.

Agents identified persons of interest in the case, establishing their ties to other terrorists, sympathies with Osama bin Laden and anti-American remarks. They looked into their bank accounts, colleges and places of employment. They tracked at least one suspect’s re-entry into the US.

The Saudi-9/11 connection in Florida was no small part of the overall 9/11 investigation. Yet it was never shared with Congress. Nor was it mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report.

From WhoWhatWhy.org:


WhoWhatWhy has found evidence linking the Saudi royal family to Saudis in South Florida who reportedly had direct contact with the 9/11 hijackers before fleeing the United States just prior to the attacks. Our report connects some of the dots first laid out by investigative author Anthony Summers and Florida-based journalist Dan Christensen in articles jointly published in the Miami Herald and on the nonprofit news site BrowardBulldog.org.

In early September of this year, Summers and Christensen reported that a secret FBI probe, never shared with Congressional investigators or the presidential 9/11 commission, had uncovered information indicating the possibility of support for the hijackers from previously unknown confederates in the United States during 2001.

Now Who.What.Why reveals that those alleged confederates were closely tied to influential members of the Saudi ruling elite.

But the now-revealed link between the Ghazzawis and the highest ranks of the Saudi establishment reopens questions about the White House’s controversial approval for multiple charter flights allowing Saudi nationals to depart the U.S., beginning about 48 hours after the attacks, without the passengers being interviewed by law enforcement—despite the identification of the majority of the hijackers as Saudis.

In addition, the new revelations draw further attention to a web of relationships that include the long and close business, personal and political ties between the Bush family and the Saudi royal family.

January 25th, 2018, from the DAILYWIRE:

A report from Judicial Watch claims newly-filed court documents further damage the credibility of Russia Special Counsel Robert Mueller. According to the conservative watchdog group, FBI Director Mueller likely “worked to cover up the connection between a Florida Saudi family and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.”

“The documents reveal that Mueller was likely involved in publicly releasing deceptive official agency statements about a secret investigation of the Saudis, who lived in Sarasota, with ties to the hijackers,” reports Judicial Watch. A “secret FBI investigation” that was hidden from Congress was also allegedly uncovered.

“Under Mueller’s leadership, the FBI tried to discredit the story, publicly countering that agents found no connection between the Sarasota Saudi family and the 2001 terrorist plot,” says the report. But files from the FBI indicate that the opposite is true: “federal agents found ‘many connections’ between the family and ‘individuals associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001.'”

Two weeks before the 9/11 terrorist attack, the Saudi family in question abruptly left their Sarasota home, leaving behind seemingly all their belongings, including cars, furniture, and jewelry, news reports said.

The files were forcibly released after a Florida-based group sued under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Okay, we now have Michael Avenatti, tied to the Royal Saudi family, who are linked to 9/11, the Bushs, and Robert Mueller.

So, let’s go to the next piece of the puzzle.  Remember in Michael’s bio where there was a tie to Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel?

January 27, 2011, Veterans Today article :

Rahm Emanuel’s Father Specialized in Terrorist Bus Bombings in Palestine.

Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel held a top position in our country’s leadership and his example of ethics and integrity is of the highest importance. This is not diminished regardless of his aspirations to leave the national spotlight and become the mayor of Chicago.

But, it seems, some secrets must just be harder to share. This revealing article will leave you with a better understanding of why no one wants to talk about Benjamin Emanuel. And why they should.

By Wayne Madsen Special to Salem-News.com

(WASHINGTON D.C.) – A well-placed British source informed WMR that Rahm Emanuel’s father, Benjamin Emanuel, specialized in the terrorist bombings of buses carrying British troops and policemen during the British Mandate in Palestine.

British MI-6 files contain information on the elder Emanuel’s participation in the terrorist activities of Irgun Zvai Leumi, a Jewish terrorist organization that targeted British forces, UN officials, and Palestinian Arabs in the lead up to Israeli independence in 1948.

Emanuel’s father Benjamin was part of the Israeli assassin team that murdered Sweden’s Count [Folke] Bernadotte in ’48. Bernadotte was the UN envoy in Palestine who sought to find a solution to the UN Partition Plan that gave Palestinian land to Jews from “beyond the pale.”

Benjamin Emanuel, a Jew from Russia whose real name was Ezekiel Auerbach, was arrested by British police for terrorist activities in the months prior to Israeli independence. Many of the British policemen killed by Emanuel and his Irgun colleagues between 1947 and 1948 had been transferred to Palestine upon Indian and Pakistani independence in 1947. Irgun saw the increase of British policemen from the Indian subcontinent as a major threat.

The Jewish terrorist murders of British troops and policemen resulted in massive anti-Jewish riots in London, Liverpool, Glasgow, Manchester, and Cardiff in 1947. In 1946, Emanuel’s Irgun bombed the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, killing 91 people, including 28 British soldiers and policemen.

British intelligence also believed that Benjamin Emanuel may have been related to Vladimir Jabotinsky, a Russian Jew from Odessa who founded Irgun. Jabotinksy, who was an admirer of Benito Mussolini and who secretly negotiated for the expatriation of Jews to Palestine with the Nazi government in Germany and Admiral Miklos Horthy’s pro-Nazi regime in Hungary, died of a heart attack in New York in 1940.

With a record of terrorist acts contained in his MI-6 files, Benjamin Emanuel was permitted by U.S. authorities to emigrate to Chicago from Israel in the 1950s, becoming a citizen. Rahm Emanuel was born in 1959.

From a CNN report:

November 6, 2008 – Obama faced with security problem at outset of transition process. “WMR has learned from informed U.S. intelligence sources that prospective Barack Obama White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has an active FBI counter-intelligence file maintained on him. “Emanuel’s rise to the Chief of Staff position may pose a significant security problem for President-elect Obama if the FBI insists on conducting the full background security investigation normally required for senior White House officials. “Questions about Emanuel’s links to the Israeli intelligence service, the Mossad, were allegedly so great that President Bill Clinton was forced to dismiss Emanuel from the White House staff in 1998…” Obama needs to address this issue now . This information has spread very fast and is casting a dark cloud on his administration .

And so, Rham, himself may very well have ties to Mossad.

And here we find Michael Avenatti entangled in a pending lawsuit with the now President, Donald J Trump, in what appears to be a campaign to smear the president.  Could it be a psych-op?

From a Business Insider, article:

On Tuesday the attorney for adult-film actress Stormy Daniels set off an unlikely firestorm.

His report revealed stunning details about President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, that could spark major ramifications for the president and his attorney as they endure legal battles on several fronts.

But how was it that Michael Avenatti, Daniels’s lawyer, came to obtain such sensitive information?

Wondering how Stormy Daniels’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, obtained the bombshell information on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s financial dealings.  Experts said it was likely from what is known as a “Suspicious Activity Report. “The Treasury Department has already opened an internal investigation into whether anyone leaked the information to Avenatti.

Add to all that, Stormy Daniels possible ties to the NXIVM sex cult scandal, and you have a bunch of statistically impossible coincidences.  Just saying.

Keep in mind, Stormy has stated she is not paying Avenatti. So, who is funding the bankrupt Michael Avenatti? It has been rumored that part of his funding is coming from Rahm Emanuel.

Knowing all of what we know now, the question is no longer, any more, how is this all related?  The questions are more, and more becoming, how is all this stuff not related?


Take a deep breath, exhale slowly, and enjoy the show!

Trust God and keep your powder dry.

Pray for our President and his administration.

God bless America and Patriots World wide.
