For the record, CNBC and Huffington post loved and promoted the creepy porn lawyer. CNN said he sounds “Presidential” It reveals the type of people these “news” organizations like to promote.

Turns out Avenetti was a former student of Jonathan Turley. Here is Turley's tweet about him: The conviction of Michael is deeply saddening on both a professional and personal level. Michael was my former student and research assistant. He was one of the most talented students I have encountered in teaching . . . https://t.co/uAuVTEc2tL
