Attorney Michael Avenatti wants to know why no one is investigating the finances of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani following weeks of having his own personal and financial dealings subjected to intense scrutiny.
Avenatti started the conversation on Saturday with a Twitter poll asking whether the personal and financial records of the attorneys representing President Donald Trump, his surrogates, or their opposition, should be fair game.
Please vote below as to whether the personal financial, business and family details of the various ATTORNEYS who are representing parties in the three cases (as opposed to Mr. Cohen, who is a party) should be fully investigated and disclosed to the public.

Most of those polled (just over half) said that none of the attorneys involved should be subject to investigation. (RELATED: Polling Proves That The Longer Michael Avenatti Speaks, The More Popular Trump Gets)
One response, asking specifically about Giuliani, prompted Avenatti to push harder. He calling on the media to dig into the other attorneys involved asking, “why just me?”
Now this is an excellent question. Hopefully some members of the media will chime in this weekend and tell us what current steps are being taken to investigate and publish on the other 13+ lawyers in the cases – Giuliani, Ryan, Harder, Blakely, etc. Why just me? #Waiting. https://t.co/tUMRnd4kZ6

Avenatti, who is representing adult film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Trump, has often complained that he faces harsher attacks than other attorneys — and claims that is because he represents someone who is going up against Trump.
