Democratic presidential candidate Michael (“Stormy Weather”) Avenatti was arrested recently on felony domestic abuse charges. Avenatti and the as-of-this-writing unidentified alleged victim apparently had a confrontation November 14th at a posh apartment building in Los Angeles’ Century City district. Reports claim the woman was seen on the sidewalk in front of the complex crying and yelling into her cellphone, “I can’t believe you did this to me. I’m going to get a restraining order against you!”
Apparently, authorities escorted her back into the apartment building where Avenatti appeared shortly thereafter, shouting, and adding, “This is bullshit! This is f**king bullshit!”
Avenatti did everything he could to derail the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, even using an unstable woman named Julie Swetnick, who briefly hurled utterly unsubstantiated and uncorroborated allegations of serial rape against Kavanaugh. Avenatti was adamant then that we all should believe Swetnick, indeed were obligated to believe all women all the time. It is deliciously ironic that Avenatti, whose law firm has been evicted from its offices for non-payment of rent, is now essentially saying, “I’m innocent! I didn’t do it! You gotta believe me! This woman is lying!” He may well be innocent of the charges, but he certainly didn’t help his cause if he shouted to authorities, “She hit me first!” Does he have the I.Q. of a radish?
Leftists love to have their cake and eat it, too. (Just kidding, they know cake is bad for you. Try the Tofu Twinkies). One can’t logically deny others due process and the presumption of innocence and subsequently demand it for oneself. The same goes for free speech and other cornerstones of a society based on the rule of law.
One would think a lawyer would know that.
One would be wrong.
