The lawyer of increasing Democratic fame vehemently denied the allegations against him saying “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,” adding “I am not going to be intimidated from stopping what I am doing.”
Avenatti later tweeted about the allegations suggesting that pro-Trump twitter personality Jacob Wohl was somehow involved. Wohl is currently under investigation by the FBI for allegedly attempting to coerce a woman to bring a sexual assault allegation against special counsel Robert Mueller.
First Mueller and now me. When we are fully exonerated I am coming for you Jacob Wohl aka Surefire.
