In the interest of being fair, I think we need to talk about this story.

Courtesy of CNN:

Aspiring actress Mareli Miniutti was granted a restraining order against famed lawyer Michael Avenatti on Monday, and accused him of physical and verbal violence — including hitting her face with pillows, calling her an “ungrateful bitch” and dragging her across the floor.

The revelation comes after Avenatti was arrested by Los Angeles police on suspicion of felony domestic violence last week. CNN has confirmed that Miniutti is the alleged victim in the arrest. Avenatti, who was released on bail the day of the arrest, has not yet been charged in the case.

In a declaration filed as part of the request for a restraining order in Los Angeles Superior Court, Miniutti, 24, said she and Avenatti had been dating since October 2017 and living together since January of this year.

She described an altercation last week in which she and Avenatti began fighting about money, leading to him calling her an “ungrateful, f***** bitch.” Avenatti proceeded to get “very close to me in a threatening manner that made me afraid,” Miniutti said in the declaration.

As the altercation worsened, Miniutti alleged, Avenatti “began forcefully hitting me in the face with pillows from the bed,” and then grabbed her wrist and, later, her arm.

“He dragged me on the floor of the apartment towards and out of the door into the public hallway,” Miniutti said. “I was wearing only my underwear and t-shirt at the time, and suffered scratches to the bare skin on my side and leg.”

Miniutti then claims that she returned to the apartment the next day, saw Michael Avenatti and then ran to the balcony in fear. After which he was arrested. 

It is important to note that the woman does not claim that Avenatti attacked her verbally or p[hysically or threatened her in any way when she fled to the balcony. 

For his part, Avenatti is not backing down from his contention that the woman is lying and that he is innocent. 

I reserve judgment on this until more facts come out.

I will state that the information coming from CNN is substantially less scandalous than what TMZ was reporting.

Putting your hands on a woman in anger is never okay, but there is a vast difference between hitting somebody with a pillow and blackening an eye with your fist. 

It would also be INCREDIBLY stupid for Avenatti to allow himself to lose control like this when he knows he is under such intense scrutiny. 

Still, like I said, I reserve judgement.

    Avenatti is a sleezebag. Just because he is a thorn in Trumps fat ass doesn’t make him a good person. Progressives would be wise to keep a jaundiced eye on him.

      I totally agree, and I am.

      I’ve had a bad feeling about him since day one. But, a feeling isn’t much, is it? I’m still reserving judgement.

    Avenatti has ALWAYS come across like an angry hornhonker, no matter his cause or approach.

    “The D.A. has referred the matter to the L.A. City Attorney’s Office.
    The City Attorney will now have to decide whether to charge Avenatti with misdemeanor domestic violence.
    TMZ broke the story … Stormy Daniels’ lawyer was arrested last week for felony domestic violence after his girlfriend, Mareli Miniutti, filed a police report, alleging Avenatti had gotten physically violent with her during an argument in their high-rise apartment in the Century City neighborhood of L.A.”

    “As soon as he got out of jail, Avenatti denied striking her — and now says, “I am thankful that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has rejected filing any charges against me after a fair, careful and thorough investigation. I have maintained my innocence since the moment of my arrest.””

      Will Avenatti pursue the culprits that set him up? TMZ? It would be interesting to learn how they went after Mueller.
      If this works for Trump’s pals in media, they will do it again. Who is next?

        I do not get my news from TMZ.
        I don’t know why anyone would.

    I just wonder how that group that tried to accuse Mueller of sexual misbehavior managed to find a woman who was willing to take the money to attack Avenatti? These creeps are willing to do
    anything to protect Drumpf. I’m willing to bet she was looking for a paycheck.

    We would like to see what is in TMZ secret vault. They cover for more than Trump. Sara has never looked worse, but she can Bible Talk when she has nothing to say.
    Give her a break, prayers and thoughts that she finds a better doctor, or whoever is messing her up. Does she have a friend that can tell her she needs to fire the people that are responsible for her look? They might think it is cool and casual, it’s just dirty slob.
    Thanks Harvey, she talks dumb and the pics leave no doubt.

    Don’t know what to make of Avenatti situation yet. No doubt he is a target.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles County district attorney declines to charge lawyer Michael Avenatti with abuse.

    The case has been dismissed and they are not going to charge him with a misdemeanor either.

    Jacob Wohl and his father David have set avenatti up and use this Estonian actress to make these charges. These are the same people that paid a woman to make false charges against mr. Mueller saying he raped her and she didn’t even show up at their press conference. The district attorney is not charging Michael avenatti. Jacob Wohl is a rotten little 20 year old who likes to apparently base himself on Rodger Stone the well-known Trickster from Nixon days. I believe they’re all going down. And I would love to see Stone get it and Little Jacob the little rotten b**** along with his father. I think you have some Russian trolls on here too. I noticed there are over there lying on Twitter about Michael avenatti. Hope to see you behind bars soon Jacob. You must be some kind of stupid putz to accuse Robert Mueller of rape. You Trump loving snot-nosed brat. Your day will come and soon.

    Majority of women claims are real and they have been abused by men. Today there are women that are setting up men for this crime. Many are hired by slobs like trump to do it. A young lousy actress for hire? maybe. A lying skank? maybe. Watch who you hang with, watch who you sleep with, watch who you trust. Sadly this is the world today. LIARS, Nasty skanks, abusive men and women having children that shoot other children. This country needs some serious manners and decency.

  12. Anon November 21, 2018 at 5:52 pm

    Hey there are men being falsely accused all over this country. Azzholes like trump pay them to do it. It is how trump operates. A sleazy trashy low life slob. Trumpy is afraid and he should be. He is going down. Hundreds of lawsuits filed against him. Make the connection to trump. This little girl was hired. And Harvey is trumps buddy.

    So Jacob Wohl and co. got a hold of this woman and offered her alot of money she couldn’t turn down to accuse Avanatti. Then somehow Harvey Levin (Trump’s daily phone pal, other than Sean Hannity) somehow show up on the scene to get what could be gotten, and “report” this. Hmmmmmmmmmm.. And just a couple weeks earlier same party was set in motion to take down Mueller. Failed. Hmmmmmmmmmm. Would be easier with no talant actress and a guy like Avanatti? Perhaps. Who’s next on Trump’s takedown wishlist? He doesn’t know how to do it any other way. Probably been doing it for a long long time. Calling in to talk shows under fake name saying Trump is a good lover, etc. etc. Just saying. I said it before. Trump knew how to do Kompromat long before Putin pulled one on him in that Golden Shower episode. A tape of which we will never see because so far Trump does all the lap dances for Putin that the man wants. That’s good leaverage.

    I disagree that hitting a person in anger with a pillow is different than a fist. The point isn’t the damage caused – it’s still violence inflicted in anger.
