All the (alleged) juicy details are coming out now:

https://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/ny-metro-avenatti-abuse-allegations-20181120-story.html

Michael Avenatti's girlfriend claims he called her an 'ungrateful f---ing b----' and grabbed her arm, according to court records

A distraught Michael Avenatti implored his girlfriend not to call police after the obscenity-spewing lawyer dragged her across their apartment floor by the arm, court documents allege.

The disturbing charges by aspiring actress Mareli Miniutti were made public Tuesday in her request for a restraining order against the attorney best known for his representation of porn star Stormy Daniels. He’s now exploring a bid for President.

Miniutti also charged a drunken Avenatti “acted in a physically violent manner toward me” during a February 2018 blow-up, with the actress claiming that she banged her head on a doorway after the lawyer shoved her into the hallway outside their apartment.

“Respondent then threw my shoes at me, striking me in the leg,” she claimed in court papers. “I continue to be afraid of (Avenatti) and do not want him to contact me.”

A temporary restraining order was granted Monday, requiring Avenatti to stay 100 yards away from Miniutti — his live-in girlfriend from January 2018 until the quickly escalating Nov. 13 argument between the couple.

“We began arguing about money, and (Avenatti) called me an “ungrateful f---ing b---- and began to berate me,” charged Miniutti in the Los Angeles Superior Court documents.

The accuser — a 20-something native of Estonia — said she left and sought refuge in the guest bedroom, with an angry Avenatti following her and calling her names.

Avenatti, 47, “began forcefully hitting me in the face with pillows from the bed,” charged Miniutti. “He then said words to the effect of ‘Do not disrespect me. You don’t get to sleep in my house tonight.’”

At that point, the lawyer allegedly grabbed her by the right wrist and tried to yank Miniutti out of bed “which caused pain to my arm and wrist,” she charged. “… At all times, he remained very close to me such that I was afraid for my safety.”

According to the actress, she was forced to flee barefoot from the apartment with Avenatti in pursuit. The lawyer asked her more than once not to call police or notify building security about what happened.

“Respondent repeatedly begged, ‘Don’t do this, Mareli, don’t involve them,’” she alleged. “I am very afraid of (Avenatti) and … fear that more threats or violence will occur,” her court papers charged.

Avenatti, who has previously denied the physical abuse allegations, took to Twitter against Tuesday to declare his innocence.

Later in the day, he doubled down by authorizing the release of video shot from security cameras inside his building on the night of the alleged incident. Copies of the video would go to the LAPD and Avenatti, who sounded confident the tapes would contradict the narrative spun by Minutti.

The lawyer was arrested last Wednesday on the charges, and released after posting $50,000 bail

When the story surfaced, THE VIEW ladies tried to muddy the subject by asserting that Avenatti's recent ex-wife (he has two) had denied being the assaultee. Yeah, at the time no one knew who it was, but if you don't know, don't toss in info that's not pertinent.

I love how the right thinks this guy is important.

He was a Democratic Party hero and has made it clear his goal is to run as a Democrat for president. he certainly was a big deal to CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC. He's your guy to take on President Trump.

Avenati for President 2020!

Why tell such stupid lies?

Just about everyone you refer to as "your guy", on this site, said something between that they strongly disliked the man and that they despised him. He played his part in showing that yet again, your guy was a fraud in the same way that he's always been a fraud. That's the only reason you're pretending that an entire "side" wants him as a candidate.

What can I say but that the game-playing is painfully obvious?

:shrug:




Edit:

And if there's a problem with media focusing on his ex-wife saying that the allegations are bogus, well then...focus on those media sites and ask why they would present that - with the implication that she was the alleged victim - not on silly claims about what your political enemies supposedly believe.

Edit:

That said....NY Daily News. We'll see what's what in time. Of course, the kicker is that no matter how much of a piece of **** Avenetti may or may not be, he nailed Trump with Daniels' allegations. Not that his supporters, defenders, and not-defenders-who-defend care about what a massive lying soulless prick Trump happens to be. It's just about *getting* liberals, or telling oneself that they have been gotten......

...just as the posts in threads like this reveal.

The Left sure thought he was important when he brought his Kavanaugh accusers forth

Feinstein is clearly senile because she had to audacity to actually ask Kavanaugh about those

“You have any comments about these allegations by a raving crazy woman and confirmed liar named Julie Swetnick”

Well she didn’t phrase it like that, but still though

Remember Leanne Tweeden? She was hired by Roger Stone and Sean Hannity to make allegations that Al Franken sexually assaulted her. The evidence was a photo of Franken pretending to grope Tweeden's fake breasts. Everyone present when the photo was taken confirmed that Franken DID NOT touch Tweeden's breasts.

Then another woman came out and alleged that Al Franken sexually assaulted her while she was having her photo taken with Franken. The photographer was her husband. The husband didn't punch Franken's lights out and instead let his wife suffer for years over the alleged sexual assault.

And the false allegations worked. The ' holier than thou' democrats forced Al Franken to fall on his sword.

Then we saw another woman come out and allege that Bob Mueller sexually assaulted her. This has now been proven to be a false allegation and Mueller has demanded the FBI investigate the woman and any trump groupie who organised it.

And now we have yet another critic of trump be accused of sexual assault. And it happens to be the girlfriend of the lawyer who represents Stormy Daniels. The hard core porn actress that was paid $130K by trump to keep her mouth shut about the size of trump's penis.

Looks like Avenatti's ex-girlfriend is being paid a lot of money from someone in trump's camp to bring Avenatti down.

Why are they trying so hard to go after all of trump's harshest critics?


And BTW - if Avenatti DID assault his ex-girlfriend or whatever - then I hope they throw the book at him. I don't support men who grab women by the ***** without their consent.

The feminists have made restraining orders so easy to get that they mean squat.

I do find it curious to see a certain "side" divided over whether to pretend to be worried about allegations of violence against women OR to use the allegation to joke about Ford-Kavanaugh.
