Michael Avenatti, who represented porn star Stormy Daniels in her case against Donald Trump, faces two trials this year for allegedly stealing money from clients including Daniels.
Avenatti, who briefly considered running for president, has already been convicted of trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike. He faces more than 40 years in prison when he is sentenced next month.
Avenatti has denied all of the charges, which his attorney claims are politically motivated by the Trump administration.
The scandal involving President Donald Trump and porn actress Stormy Daniels — who received $130,000 in hush money over an alleged 2006 sexual tryst — is likely to remain alive long after he leaves office.
