Michael Avenatti Blames Jacob Wohl For Assault Allegations
Celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti is now implying that a pro-President Donald Trump activist is responsible for the assault allegations filed against him Wednesday by an unidentified woman.
Avenatti sent a cryptic tweet on Thursday morning that seemed to imply he believed Jacob Wohl, a popular right-wing Twitter personality, is conspiring against him.
“First Mueller and now me. When we are fully exonerated I am coming for you Jacob Wohl aka Surefire,” Avenatti wrote.
Wohl, with GOP lobbyist Jack Burkman, recently claimed that he had knowledge of a woman who claimed Special Counsel Robert Mueller sexually assaulted her. That woman has yet to come forward. (RELATED: Michael Avenatti Arrested For Domestic Violence)
Reports surfaced on Wednesday night that Avenatti was arrested for felony domestic violence after an incident on Tuesday in Los Angeles. He later posted $50,000 bail and has claimed he is entirely innocent.
“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 am not going to be intimidated from stopping what I am doing,” Avenatti told reporters on Wednesday.
Avenatti did not respond to request for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation.
