Michael Avenatti Fires Back Over 4Chan Prank Claim: It’s A Total Fabrication



A 4chan troll is claiming to have tricked Michael Avenatti into believing he is representing a new Kavanaugh accuser. The moment the 4chan user came forward the conspiracy theory spread like wildfire on Twitter.

It didn’t take long for Avenatti to post a reply to the claim on his Twitter account:

Avenatti is no stranger to crazy and sometimes potentially dangerous attacks from the right. The attorney took his Twitter account private on Tuesday because of an increasing number of Twitter trolls and threats against his life and the life of his client.

The claims of a 4Chan prank came forward after Avenatti said he agreed to “represent a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.” He quickly noted that the woman was not Deborah Ramirez.

Hill Reporter noted earlier in the day that the women Avenatti is representing is someone who has been issued numerous secret clearance credentials over the years.

CNN’s Jake Tapper reached out to Avenatti and this was the response he received:

Twitter users who want to believe the prank is true said Avenatti received a “credible accusation” that he was scammed and should immediately provide proof.

Of course, someone saying they duped Avenatti is not exactly credible or proof of anything.

If you need more proof that the right is trying to rattle Avenatti’s cage, Big League Politics’ Peter D’Abrosca attempted to claim (he makes a lot of random claims that go unproven) that Avenatti locked his Twitter account after he was duped by a 4chan troll.

Now we play the waiting game. Avenatti has managed to deliver on his promises and it’s hard to believe that he would fall for a simple 4Chan prank and then make a big announcement without vetting his source.
