Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti is still considering running for president despite his bust for domestic violence, according to a report.
“I’m still considering it,” Avenatti told USA Today. “I will not be intimidated. The measure of a person is how they get up when they are knocked down.”
The lawyer was arrested Wednesday on accusations that he attacked a woman at a Los Angeles apartment, leaving her face “swollen and bruised.”
He was booked on a felony domestic violence charge. He was released later that day on $50,000 bail and fought back against the allegations.
“I wish to thank the hard working men and women of the LAPD for their professionalism. They were only doing their jobs in light of the completely bogus allegations against me,” he said in a statement.
“I have never been physically abusive in my life nor was I last night. Any accusations to the contrary are fabricated and meant to do harm to my reputation. I look forward to being fully exonerated.
“I want to be clear: I DID NOT commit domestic violence nor have I ever committed domestic violence,” he tweeted. “I did not strike any woman nor have I ever. I did not strike my ex-wife in the face nor did I hit anyone else in the face.”
Avenatti blamed his arrest right-wing internet conspiracy peddler Jacob Wohl, who was implicated in a scheme of making false sexual misconduct allegations against special counsel Robert Mueller.
“First Mueller and now me,” he tweeted Thursday. “When we are fully exonerated I am coming for you Jacob Wohl aka Surefire.”
