    Michael Avenatti is convicted of trying to extort Nike

    Michael Avenatti, the combative lawyer who gained fame by representing a porn star in lawsuits involving President Donald Trump, was convicted Friday of trying to extort sportswear giant Nike.

    The verdict was returned Friday by a federal jury in Manhattan following a three-week trial in which prosecutors said Avenatti threatened to use his media access to hurt Nike's reputation and stock price unless the company paid him up to $25 million.

    The convictions for attempted extortion and honest services fraud carry a combined potential penalty of 42 years in prison.

    This guy was one of the biggest heroes of the left for two straight years.

    He was also running a legal ponzi scheme through his firm. I believe going into the 10s of millions.
