Anti-Trump lawyer Michael Avenatti said that he was “confident” he would be completely exonerated after being arrested on Wednesday for felony domestic violence after a woman filed a complaint against him.
He addressed reporters after posting bail, which was set at $50,000.
“I want to thank the hard-working men and women of the LAPD for their professionalism and their work today. They had no option in light of the allegations. Secondly, I have never struck a woman. I never will strike a woman. I have been an advocate for women’s rights my entire career and I’m going to continue to be an advocate. I’m not going to be intimidated from stopping what I am doing,” he began.
“I am a father to two beautiful, smart daughters. I would never disrespect them by touching a woman inappropriately or striking a woman. I am looking forward to a full investigation at which point I am confident that I will be fully exonerated. I also want to thank everyone for their support that has reached out, you know my character, you know me as a man and I appreciate it. Thank you,” Avenatti claimed.
