Well, it was nice while it lasted. Michael Avenatti – AKA Creepy Porn Lawyer – was out of the news for a few days after a rough couple of weeks. First, His client Stormy Daniels lost the lawsuit against Donald Trump and had to pay for Donald’s court fees. Then, Chuck Grassley sent a referral to the DOJ to investigate the false claims Avenatti’s client said under oath.
1/2 – We are investigating an alleged assault on a gay latino immigrant committed by T. Carlson and/or members of his inner circle at a club in VA in Oct. It likely includes underage drinking in violation of VA law. Link to a portion of the incident: https://t.co/QcbCRHrplP
3/3 – You told the man to “go back where you came from” before the video starts. And if you were so innocent, why didn’t you disclose it weeks ago as you recently did in connection with the protest at your home?
So he is back. And his target is Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. The host of ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight” the second highest rated cable weekly news show.
Michael Avenatti was on Tucker’s show a month or so ago. It didn’t go so well for Avenatti. Tucker destroyed him and exposed him for the world to see. That pain and embarrassment probably stuck with Avenatti.
This is Tucker Carlson’s side of the story:
“Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend,” he said in his statement. “On their way back through the bar, a middle-aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson.”
Upon learning she was the right-wing commentator’s daughter, Carlson said, “The man responded, ‘Are you Tucker’s whore?’ ” and called her a misogynistic slur.
The woman returned to the table crying, according to Carlson. He and his son got up to confront Granados at the bar. “My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face and told him to leave the bar, which he soon did,” reads his statement, which did not directly address the scene in the cellphone video.
Avenatti, who is known for representing accusers of President Trump and Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, called Carlson’s statement “an absolute lie.”
He subsequently released statements from Granados and two unnamed people he said witnessed the altercation — all of them contradicting Carlson’s claims that his daughter was insulted.
This is Manuel Granados’ side of the story:
“I NEVER called any member of his family any names,” Granados said. “I never attacked his daughter as Tucker claims. … Tucker has created this story out of thin air — it never happened.”
“Tucker threatened me with physical violence and told me to ‘Go back to where you came from,’ before another patron started filming,” Granados said in his statement.
Here is a statement from my client regarding the incident with Tucker Carlson and Tucker’s fabricated version of events. As a father of two teenage daughters myself, I find it disgraceful that Tucker seeks to justify his behavior by falsely hiding behind his family. #Coward
There is a video as well:
This seems to be just another attempt at regaining the spotlight and getting back at Tucker Carlson. Will this Creep Porn Lawyer ever go away?
