@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @KTVZ @LvilleSprtsLive @newsobserver @nakednews @WashTimes @dcexaminer The Assistant US Attorneys have just rolled into the courtroom with their shopping cart of exhibits; they tell Judge Gardephe's courtroom deputy that they are "ready."
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @KTVZ @LvilleSprtsLive @newsobserver @nakednews @WashTimes @dcexaminer "All rise!" Judge Gardephe has come in, and said "Please be seated."
Now he says, "The defense filed an additional letter asking for an additional jury charge. The request is denied."

OK - US v Avenatti Nike extortion trial now at jury charge then deliberations. Judge Gardephe is beginning by ruling on Avenatti's late-proposed charge changes… the charge is online- Inner City Press will live tweet as things happen - thread
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @KTVZ @LvilleSprtsLive @WashTimes @newsobserver @dcexaminer @nakednews The US Attorney's Office has said the phone records, printed out, would require a shopping cart. Turns out it's only a few hundred pages, double sided. When all the paperwork is done, jury will come in and hear (long) charge
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @KTVZ @LvilleSprtsLive @WashTimes @newsobserver @dcexaminer @nakednews AUSA Richenthal asks if Judge Gardephe would let the jury deliberate past 4:30 pm. He says he lets them go past, but it would seem strange to tell them that at 10 am. Says if nothing is heard from them during the day, he'll bring them out and ask at 4:30

OK - US v. #Avenatti Day 8, cross-examination of Coach Gary Franklin by Scott Srebnick, how he paid cash to Ayton's mother for Nike, fraudulent invoices Inner City Press will live tweet as much as possible - thread
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @KTVZ @dcexaminer @newsobserver @WashTimes @nakednews Scott Srebnick: So in 2017 you were approached again by Mr. Friedman to get his son to play on your team, right?
Franklin: No
Srebnick: So explain how you lost your contract?
Franklin: Another Nike person approach me about his son and other kids playing on my team
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @KTVZ @dcexaminer @newsobserver @WashTimes @nakednews Franklin: We had an interest in a player named Bol Bol... I got a call from Mr. James, saying some of the players we currently had were going to leave the team. I asked parents, it didn't seem to be true. But they wanted to meet with me, put Brian Freeman's son on

OK - US v. #Avenatti #Nike extortion trial, Day 7 - Judge Gardephe showing increasing frustration with both side, as Coach Gary Franklin is in the bullpen Inner City Press will live tweet as much as it can: thread
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @KTVZ @dcexaminer @WashTimes @newsobserver Judge Gardephe: The examination on the point won't begin with offering the out of court statement. The defense needs to proffer the particular exhibit to me. But to send me a letter without bothering to identify the text messages, it's not helpful.
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @KTVZ @dcexaminer @WashTimes @newsobserver Judge Gardephe: So, if you want to do more examination of Auerbach, you can re-call him in the defense case. If he doesn't admit them, you can show him the text messages. If he continues to deny, you can offer them into evidence. Anything more?

OK - It's US v. #Avenatti trial Day 6, #Nike lawyer from Oregon Q-ed by AUSA Richenthal. Disclosure: juggling Avenatti trial with the CIA leaks trial US v. Schulte But doing as much as possible. Intermittent thread
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @dcexaminer @WashTimes @KTVZ @nakednews AUSA Richenthal: So let's go through the meeting. Who spoke first?
Nike lawyer: First Mr. Geragos. Then Mr. Avenatti. He wanted to confirm this meeting followed Rule 408 of the Evidence Code, if there's a lawsuit, what's said doesn't come in.
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @dcexaminer @WashTimes @KTVZ @nakednews AUSA Richenthal: Did you think it was a settlement conference?
Nike lawyer: No. Mr. Avenatti mostly spoke about his media presence and his demand that we hire his firm to do an investigation.

OK - US v. #Avenatti trial for alleged extortion of #Nike is beginning for real with oral arguments Government says 20 minutes, defense predicts slightly more than 30 minutes. Inner City Press will do its best to live tweet it: thread
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @NBCNewYork @gabrielsherman @MichaelHwrdSaul @nakednews @dcexaminer @businessinsider @KTVZ @YahooSports AUSA Robert Sobelman: This is a case about this man, a lawyer. "Like all lawyers, he was supposed to look out for the interests of his client. But he did not. He had a weapon, social media. He found a way to use that weapons.
@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @NBCNewYork @gabrielsherman @MichaelHwrdSaul @nakednews @dcexaminer @businessinsider @KTVZ @YahooSports AUSA Sobelman: The coach told the defendant that he was afraid that what Nike had done was illegal. But the defendant saw dollar signs for himself. He could go on the Internet and tell people that Nike broke the law, and hurt Nike. He figured Nike might pay up big

They're still doing jury selection. But SDNY prosecutors have rolled in a shopping cart full of binders. #Countdown
In courtroom for US v. Avenatti, a prospective juror says he has connections with the legal field. He's summoned up for sidebar. Jury selected and openings today? UNclear
Now SDNY Judge Gardephe asks prospective jurors still in Courtroom 110 if any for them did any research, online or otherwise, yesterday or last night or today so far. He's asked if anyone would have a problem not doing podcasts during trial…

THREAD: Yesterday a CA judge ordered @MichaelAvenatti’s super complicit ex-wife Christine @AvenattiCarlin to pay $715K to creditor Jason Frank. Here’s a screen grab of an overview article. AND here’s Mr Frank’s motion:
The details are insanity, as usual. Both Michael & Christine pled the 5th.
If you follow what a fraudulent worm #Avenatti is, you’ll find this funny but not shocking. Where to start?
First, #Avenatti 100% funneled over $700K to his ex via cashier’s check to dodge creditors to whom he owes millions. He claimed the $700K was back spousal pay.

Well, THIS is quite interesting.

I saw a post where someone said the FBI Task Force for crimes against children was involved in the Jussie Smollett case.

Being very skeptical, I wanted some corroboration, but could only find this:…
In that article, there is a small blurb that Chicago police shared info with FBI agents. One agent mentioned was SA Greg Wing.
It did NOT mention anything about Crimes against children.

However, I did a search for SA Greg Wing and found something else very curious.

The plot thickens... #NXIVM…

Lauren Salzman entered the guilty plea to #conspiracy charges his week at a hearing that wasn't on the ct calendar. Afterward, a judge agreed to seal a transcript until parts of it could be blacked out. #NXIVM…

I was attacked viciously by Democrats last year for saying that #Avenatti was not only not presidential material, but dangerous for Dems to tie themselves to, that he had questionable history with clients and contractors and women.

I was the 1st journalist Avenatti blocked.
Hundreds of Democrats, including some prominent Twitter voices, claimed he would be our best choice for 2020 and excoriated me for "being divisive."
Avenatti tanked the fight against #Kavanaugh by bringing in a questionable witness who gave the #GOP an excuse to ignore Ford.
Many of the #Avenatti fans are now pushing #Biden, which I have also said is a huge error in judgement.
Just as I warned #Mueller was not going to save us.
My point is simply that some of us have been covering politics for decades and doing it without fealty to individuals.

1. Michael Avenatti aka Creepy Porn Lawyer, simply won't go back in the closet.

The latest in his long history of antics is, of course the display of another sexual assault accuser, Julie Swetnick. This time aimed at derailing Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
2. Why does Avenatti so loudly protest Trump & his agenda?

In a tweet on Sept 26, Trump explained, "He is just looking for attention and doesn't want people to look at his past record and relationships-a total low-life!"

#Q asks - Who is the REAL #MichaelAvenatti ?

Well Housatonic IT Services never really thought about it, but since you ask #Qanon , we would be happy to take a peak
[2] #AboutAvenatti

Although it is biased (as described in #AboutStrzok)... and even edited by confessed pedophiles (dead serious... even people who discuss how they have fantasies of raping their own parents), we always have to start with @Wikipedia

[3] #AboutAvenatti

Dammit ...

"While in college and later in law school, Avenatti worked at The Research Group, a political opposition research and media firm run by #RahmEmanuel (later White House Chief of Staff for President Barack Obama, and Mayor of Chicago)"

The #Cohen ex parte application for a #gag order of #Avenatti - beyond being legally weak and conclusory - is in blatant violation of the court’s case law regarding such applications. It contains no reasoning why ex parte relief is required. See Local Rule 7-19. 1/2
See Mission Power Eng. Co. v. Continental Cas. Co. (C.D. Cal. 1995) (noting that such motions are used abusively and are “rarely justified.”) They require specific procedures (not followed by Cohen) & are for when the normal notice process would result in irreparable harm. 2/
Further, the moving party must show they aren’t at fault in creating the need for ex parte relief. Here, #Avenatti has been vocal for months. #Cohen and his goober lawyer fail to explain why they waited this long to file instead of bringing a noticed motion. 3/
