Michael Avenatti Threatens To Sue Daily Caller News Foundation Reporters Personally
Peter Hasson & Joe Simonson
Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult film star Stormy Daniels in her legal battles against President Donald Trump, threatened to sue reporters at The Daily Caller News Foundation for writing about his legal and business history.
Avenatti tried to claim his uninvited email was off record, even though TheDCNF never agreed to those terms.
“Let me be clear. If you and your colleagues do not stop with the hit pieces that are full of lies and defamatory statements, I will have no choice but to sue each of you and your publication for defamation,” Avenatti wrote in an email to TheDCNF.
