     New York / Los Angeles, – Michael Avenatti, explorer of porn star Stormy Daniels in his crusade against US President Donald Trump, was arrested today in New York for bank fraud, embezzlement and extortion attempt on the company Nike, according to court documents.

    The Southern District of New York today announced charges against Avenatti for “trying to extract more than 20 million dollars in payments” with threats using its ability to “inflict damage to the company’s reputation and finances” in case of meet their demands.

    Avenatti himself tweeted today that he plans to hold a press conference on Tuesday “to reveal a basketball scandal in high schools and universities perpetrated by Nike.”
    In addition, prosecutors in Los Angeles announced that Avenatti also faces federal charges of banking and cyber fraud.

    He is accused of embezzling a $ 1.6 million settlement to finance his coffee business, Global Baristas US LLC, and for personal expenses. He is also accused of obtaining $ 4.1 million in loans from a Mississippi bank when filing false tax returns.

    Avenatti, who went so far as to imply that he could stand as a candidate for the next presidential election, rose to fame by representing Daniels in his effort to nullify a secret agreement with Trump and his then lawyer, Michael Cohen.

    The aim of Avenatti was for Trump to recognize the existence of a supposed pact of confidentiality related to a sexual relationship between the ruler and his client in 2006, when the president was already married to Melania.

    The porn star said a man approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 and threatened her not to talk about her alleged sexual relationship with Trump if she did not want to have problems.

    The actress assured that the fear of that threat was the reason why, in the final stretch of the 2016 presidential campaign, she agreed to sign a confidentiality agreement on her romance with Trump for $ 130,000.
