Klobuchar compares Trump to Joseph McCarthy

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6117235697001_6117232612001-vs Klobuchar compares Trump to Joseph McCarthy Tyler Olson fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-debate fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/amy-klobuchar fox news fnc/politics fnc b6ef017f-5b43-5e45-9d45-a40c0dedd3c7 article

Presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., likened President Trump to the infamous ringleader of the 1950’s ‘Red Scare,’ Joseph McCarthy, in an answer during Tuesday’s Democratic debate.

After being asked whether or not she was concerned Trump would be “emboldened” by a Senate acquittal now that House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is set to transmit the articles of impeachment to the upper chamber, Klobuchar replied that she was not, saying members of Congress needed to do their constitutional duty and check the executive.

“I think the best way to think about this trial and what we’re facing in this election is a story of a man from Primghar, Iowa,” she said, giving a shout-out to the debate’s host state, which also will hold the first-in-the-nation caucuses on Feb. 3. “He came from humble beginnings, the son of immigrants. He became the Army Counsel, and he was the one who went to the Joseph McCarthy hearings and …  said, ‘Have you no sense of decency, sir?’ Have you no sense of decency?”

AT FINAL DEBATE BEFORE IOWA CAUCUSES, IT’S ‘DO OR DIE’ FOR 2020 DEMS

Klobuchar was referencing former U.S. Army Counsel Joseph Welch, who asked, “At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” to McCarthy in a hearing for the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. That moment is widely considered to be the beginning of the end of the Red Scare and the start of McCarthy’s downfall. McCarthy would use false information and conspiracy theories to stoke Americans’ paranoia about communist subversion and the Soviet Union, putting many Americans on blacklists for their alleged communist beliefs.

“This is a patriotism check,” Klobuchar said. “Not only is this trial that, but also this election. And no matter if you agree with everyone here on this stage, I say this to Americans, you know this is a decency check on this president.”

Klobuchar, who has polled in the middle-single-digits in Iowa, came into Tuesday’s debate needing to make a splash with four of the candidates on the stage significantly ahead of her. Tuesday is the last time voters will see the top candidates on a stage at the same time before the Iowa caucuses, which can make or break presidential primary campaigns.

Warren appears to snub Sanders’ handshake after debate

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6122597678001_6122601921001-vs Warren appears to snub Sanders' handshake after debate Tyler Olson fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-debate fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox news fnc/politics fnc article 2a4071c9-2ee6-56e9-9a3d-7304427d0cfa

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., seemed to reject Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., as he offered a handshake following Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate in Iowa.

The two candidates, who are competing for the most progressive voters in the Democratic Party, had seen their apparent nonaggression pact fray in recent days — seemingly culminating in Warren spurning Sanders’ gesture on national television. She shook former Vice President Joe Biden’s hand just moments before.

The rift between the senators was accelerated by a story, first reported by CNN, that Sanders had told Warren in late 2018 he did not think a woman could win a presidential election.

WARREN HITS BACK AS SANDERS DENIES SYING A WOMAN CAN’T WIN PRESIDENCY

“Well, as a matter of fact, I didn’t say it,” Sanders said Tuesday evening in response to a question from the CNN moderators asking him why he had made that statement to his fellow senator. “Anybody who knows me knows that it’s incomprehensible that I would think that a woman could not be President of the United States.”

That answer did not appear to satisfy Warren, however, who responded, “I disagreed,” when CNN moderators asked her what she thought, “when Senator Sanders told you a woman could not win the election.”

Warren went on to point out that she and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Mass., had won every single election they had ever run in, a feat none of the men on the stage could claim.

‘Look at the men on this stage. Collectively, they have lost 10 elections. The only people on this stage who have won every single election that they have been in are the women ⁠— Amy [Klobuchar] and me.’

— Elizabeth Warren

“Can a woman beat Donald Trump?” Warren asked. “Look at the men on this stage. Collectively, they have lost 10 elections. The only people on this stage who have won every single election that they have been in are the women ⁠— Amy [Klobuchar] and me.

“And the only person on this stage who has beaten an incumbent Republican any time in the past 30 years is me,” she continued, referencing her 2012 victory over former Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass.

Tuesday’s debate was the final chance voters will get to see all the top candidates on the same stage before the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, which can make or break presidential primary campaigns.

Federal judge rules in favor of Trump administration in family separation case

San Diego judge ruled Monday that the Trump administration was acting within the law in separating more than 900 children at the border based on their parents being deemed unfit or dangerous.

U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw previously ruled the administration must locate and reunite children separated from their parents after the controversial “zero-tolerance” policy was first announced in the spring of 2018.

The American Civil Liberties Union had argued that the allegations against parents were dubious and based on minor offenses and asked Sabraw in July to rule on the legality of separating 911 children since he halted the practice in 2018.

“It is an invitation that is potentially massive in scope, invades an area that is particularly within the province of the executive branch to secure the nation’s border, and goes beyond this court’s class certification and preliminary injunction orders, which were focused on the administration’s practice of separating families at the border for the purpose of deterring immigration, and failing to reunify those families,” Sabraw wrote in a 26-page decision.

He said he didn’t find any evidence the administration was abusing its power.

Under zero-tolerance, the administration began prosecuting all those suspected of crossing the border illegally, resulting in children being separated from their detained parents.

However, Sabraw said a 90-minute DNA test must be used when there is doubt the adult is the child’s parent.

ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt said in a statement after the ruling, “The court strongly reaffirmed that the Trump administration bears the burden if it attempts to separate families based on an accusation that the adult is not the child’s parent. We are evaluating the decision to determine next steps on how to ensure that children are not separated from their parents based on minor infractions.”

Connecticut high school’s ‘Redmen’ mascot reinstated after GOP gains control of board

Less than a year after a school board in Connecticut removed a high school’s “Redmen” mascot, arguing it was racist, it voted last week to restore the mascot, according to reports.

The reversal in a 5-4 party-line vote followed last November’s election, in which the school board in Killingly changed from a Democrat majority to a Republican majority, The Hartford Courant reported.

MAINE BANS NATIVE AMERICAN MASCOTS IN ALL STATE SCHOOLS

The Republican candidates had promised during the election to restore the mascot, according to the newspaper.

The vote left the high school’s athletic director in disbelief.

“You are pulling the rug right from beneath us,” Kevin Marcoux said at last week’s board meeting. “Everywhere we go, we are the laughingstock of the state.”

Prior to the election, board members voted last July to remove the “Redmen” name and then a few months later approved the new name “Red Hawks.”

After the GOP majority took control, many students, faculty and members of Native American groups asked the board not to go through with the reinstatement of “Redmen,” the Courant reported.

But the Republicans argued that those who preferred the name “Redmen” deserved to have their opinions respected as well.

“If we’re going to talk about respecting our students and protecting our students and doing what’s best for our students, we need to respect the opinion of all of our students, not just the ones we agree with,” said Jason Muscara, a Republican member of the school board.

Prior to the election, Muscara had told the Courant that the campaign to replace the old mascot had been part of a “radical left agenda” of local Democrats.

Another Republican board member, Karen Fremuth, argued that the name “Redmen” was never intended to disrespect Native Americans.

One Democrat argued that times had changed and that the school board needed to change with them.

“History and facts change as we get more information,” Lydia Rivera-Abrams, said, adding that the school board should pursue policies that promote “respect for everyone.”

Trump agrees with UK’s Johnson on replacing Obama-era Iranian deal

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6122757389001_6122756033001-vs Trump agrees with UK’s Johnson on replacing Obama-era Iranian deal fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche article 5a83c57a-c6d8-56c0-8a59-256b4ac8e116

President Trump late Tuesday tweeted his support for Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s idea to scrap the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal and replaced it with a new proposal designed and negotiated by the Trump administration.

BORIS JOHNSON SAYS TRUMP SHOULD DESIGN HIS OWN NUKE DEAL

Trump was likely referring to an interview that the United Kingdom leader had with the BBC on Monday where he called his U.S. counterpart “a great deal maker, by his own account and others,” and expressed a willingness to let Trump take the lead on the matter.

“If we’re going to get rid of it, let’s replace it and let’s replace it with the Trump deal,” Johnson said.

Trump tweeted late Tuesday the quote from the interview and the line, “I agree!”

The U.S. pulled out from the Obama-era agreement in 2018.  Trump devoted much of his time while running for office mocking the international agreement for being too soft on the Iranian regime.

Trump took a major gamble earlier this month when he approved the drone killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

Iran’s immediate response to fire missiles at bases holding U.S. troops in the region was considered by many to be contained.  There were no reports of casualties. But some Middle East experts warn that Tehran and some of its proxies may still be planning a more meaningful retaliation.

The Trump administration has said it is not focused on regime change in the country, but—at least for the time—appears to be in a powerful negotiating position with Tehran.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was at Stanford University on Monday and said the administration’s goal is to one day see Iran “behave like a normal nation. Just be like Norway,” he said, according to the New York Times.

Sanders, Warren clash over USMCA trade deal at debate

DES MOINES — Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts see eye to eye on many issues, but their sharp differences on a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico grabbed prime-time attention during Tuesday’s debate.

At issue was the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, a renegotiation of the quarter-century-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The new deal – known as the USMCA – was negotiated by the Trump administration. A revised deal was overwhelming approved last month in a bipartisan vote by the House of Representatives.

SANDERS CLASHES WITH WARREN AND BIDEN AT FIESTY DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY DEBATE

Sanders, the populist independent senator who’s making his second straight White House run, slammed the deal at the debate, saying that “we can do much better than a Trump-led trade deal.”

He argued that “this deal .. will result in the loss of hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs as a result of outsourcing.”

Sanders touted his vote against NAFTA and his opposition to other trade deals and also spotlighted that “I will not vote for a trade agreement that does not incorporate very, very strong principles to significantly lower fossil fuel emissions in the world.”

Warren also touted her opposition to past trade deals, saying “I led the fight against the trade deal with Asia and the trade deal with Europe.”

But disagreeing with her fellow progressive standard-bearer in the Democratic presidential field, Warren highlighted that “we have farmers here in Iowa that are hurting and they are hurting because of Donald Trump’s initiated trade wars.”

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL RACE

“This new trade deal is a modest improvement. Sen. Sanders himself has said so,” Warren said, pointing to a past statement by Sanders.

She highlighted that the revised USMCA “will give some relief to our farmers, it will give some relief to our workers. I believe we accept that relief. We try to help the people who need help and we get up the next day and we fight for a better trade deal.”

Sanders – responding – warned that “if this is passed, I think it will set us back a number of years.”

The debate moderators then asked former Vice President Joe Biden about a past comment by Sanders that if Biden wins the Democratic nomination, Trump will “eat your lunch” for voting for “terrible” trade agreements.

The former vice president – ribbing Sanders – said that “I don’t know that there’s any trade agreement that the senator would think made any sense.”

And Biden pledged that “there will be no trade agreement signed in my administration without environmentalists and labor at the table. And there will be no trade agreement until we invest more in American workers.”

Sanders, spotlighting Biden’s support for NAFTA and other trade agreements, shot back that “Joe and I have a fundamental disagreement, in case you haven’t noticed.”

CNN blasted for ‘siding’ with Warren after Sanders denied sexism charge

Westlake Legal Group Cnn-Debate-Stage CNN blasted for 'siding' with Warren after Sanders denied sexism charge Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 68bacfaa-845d-5f20-b8e8-d27925fc9c16

CNN is being accused of “media malpractice” over its handling of the disputed claim that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., told Sen. Elizabeth Warren., D-Mass., that a woman couldn’t win the presidency during a December 2018 meeting.

The liberal news network broke the story on Monday. The network cited unnamed sources close to Warren who claimed that the Vermont senator told her that he didn’t believe she could win a presidential election because she’s a woman.  Sanders denied the claim, but Warren affirmed the report.

At Tuesday night’s debate in Iowa, Sanders was asked about the dustup by CNN political correspondent Abby Phillip.

“CNN reported yesterday that- and Senator Warren confirmed in a statement– that in 2018 you told her that you did not believe that a woman can win the election. Why did you say that?” Phillip asked.

“Well, as a matter of fact, I didn’t say it,” Sanders sharply replied. “Anybody who knows me knows that it’s incomprehensible that I would think that a woman cannot be president of the United States. Go to YouTube today.  There’s some video of me 30 years ago talking about how a woman could become president of the United States.”

SANDERS CAMPAIGN BLASTS THE ‘MILLIONAIRES ON THE VIEW’ FOR ‘SMEARING’ HIS SUPPORTERS AS ANTI-WOMEN

Sanders then pointed to his attempt to “draft” Warren to run for president in 2016 and vowed to support the eventual Democratic nominee, including female candidates like Warren and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.

“Senator Sanders, I do want to be clear here. You’re saying that you never told Senator Warren that a woman could not win the election,” Phillip followed.

“That is correct,” Sanders answered.

“Senator Warren, what did you think when Senator Sanders told you a woman could not win an election?” Phillip then asked the progressive rival, which sparked audible laughs in the auditorium and a shake of the head from Sanders.

That exchange sparked backlash on social media.

“Incredible. The CNN moderator asked Warren as if it were de facto true that Bernie told her a woman couldn’t be president. I cannot believe a moderator did not ask her if it was true. She just said straight up what did you think when Bernie said that to you? I’m blown away.” Daily Caller editor-in-chief Geoffrey Ingersoll reacted.

“Wait CNN just refused to listen to Bernie and just took what Warren said was the truth? progressive commentator Hasan Piker asked, later adding “what CNN is doing tonight should be criminal.”

“The kids gloves the moderators have right now is exasperating. Both candidates are, in effect, calling the other a liar. And they’re being allowed to just skate past it!” Washington Free Beacon reporter Alex Griswold exclaimed.

“Seriously it is outrageous that CNN would take Warren’s accusation as a statement of fact. Media malpractice,” The Hill TV host Saagar Enjeti declared.

TRUMP SIDES WITH SANDERS AMID DUSTUP WITH WARREN: ‘I DON’T BELIEVE BERNIE SAID THAT’

Even Donald Trump Jr. went to bat for Sanders and slammed the liberal network.

“How did CNN just pretend that Bernie didn’t totally deny that he said a woman couldn’t win and pretend like it it was a fact just because Warren said so? It’s not like her entire persona isn’t built on lies… Is the fix against Bernie in again???” the president’s son questioned.

Sanders flatly denied the claim that was made in CNN’s report on Monday while Warren initially did not comment the claim.

“It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn’t win,” Sanders told Fox News. “It’s sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren’t in the room are lying about what happened. What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could. Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016.”

Following the report, a video clip from 1988 surfaced of Sanders expressing his support for a woman to become president.

“The real issue is not whether you’re black or white, whether you’re a woman or a man — in my view, a woman could be elected president of the United States,” Sanders said at the time while backing Jesse Jackson’s candidacy. “The real issue is whose side are you on? Are you on the side of workers and poor people or are you on the side of big money and the corporations?”

However, Warren issued a statement affirming the report.

“Bernie and I met for more than two hours in December 2018 to discuss the 2020 election, our past work together and our shared goals: beating Donald Trump, taking back our government from the wealthy and well-connected, and building an economy that works for everyone. Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed,” Warren said.

She continued, “I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further because Bernie and I have far more in common than our differences on punditry.  I’m in this race to talk about what’s broken in this country and how to fix it — and that’s what I’m going to continue to do. I know Bernie is in the race for the same reason. We have been friends and allies in this fight for a long time, and I have no doubt we will continue to work together to defeat Donald Trump and put our government on the side of the people.”

Rachel Brosnahan says ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ costumes caused ‘corset-related injury’

Westlake Legal Group mrs-maisel Rachel Brosnahan says 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' costumes caused 'corset-related injury' Nate Day fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment/genres/late-night fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 99a5334f-486c-5be0-a7fa-9b3e52d5669b

Beauty is pain on the set of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

Rachel Brosnahan, who stars in the Amazon comedy, appeared on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Monday and revealed that she was injured by one of the show’s elaborate costumes.

“I actually got a corset-related injury,” said the actress, 29, when asked about wearing the fashion garment every day. “We talk so fast on the show that to get all the words out you can’t really take very many breaths, and I think I wasn’t breathing a lot and I was a bit constrained.”

She added: “Apparently some of my ribs are sort of fused together and I can’t take super deep breaths anymore.”

Brosnahan chalked it up to “Champagne problems.”

While Brosnahan only has to wear the corset to play a character, she has faced harsh criticism over the way she looks.

Last month, Brosnahan revealed that in the beginning of her career, she was repeatedly told to change her look.

“Early on, you get a lot of feedback on auditions… People give it to you like it is [the] Bible, like it is truth,” she said in a Q&A. “I’ve been told so many times I had to change my hair and learn to do my makeup and ‘buy different clothes’… It starts to get into your head.”

Luckily, Brosnahan didn’t listen to the critics, which seemed to work well for the Emmy winner.

“And all those things are sometimes an attempt to fit a square peg into a round hole,” she said. “The right thing will find you.”

Dems abandon personal attacks in debate heavy on foreign policy

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6122680959001_6122681348001-vs Dems abandon personal attacks in debate heavy on foreign policy Howard Kurtz fox-news/columns/media-buzz fox news fnc/media fnc article aa581e21-1c17-5ce5-a894-3bee80d2773c

The first Democratic debate since President Trump’s confrontation with Iran kicked off with foreign policy questions, as Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders rehearsed their differences over the Iraq war and Elizabeth Warren attacked the defense industry.

Biden admitted he had made a “mistake,” but that Barack Obama picked him anyway, while Sanders acknowledged he supported the war in Afghanistan but warned that Trump could drag us into a war with Iran.

Wolf Blitzer’s questioning in the CNN debate in Iowa, with just six candidates on stage, reflected the turmoil in the Middle East since the president ordered the drone strike that killed Iran’s top general. And the candidates differed on America’s military presence, with Warren saying “we need to get our combat troops out” of Iraq and Sanders saying Americans “are sick and tired of endless wars.”

SANDERS-WARREN FEUD INTENSIFIES AHEAD OF TUESDAY’S DEBATE

Pete Buttigieg, bolstered by his service in Afghanistan, said “the very president who said he was going to end endless wars…now has more troops going to the Middle East.”

And Biden unintentionally highlighted his longevity in saying he first ran for Congress against the Vietnam War.

Blitzer, a onetime Jerusalem reporter, did a solid job of following up, confronting Biden with the fact that the Obama administration sometimes took military action without congressional approval.

As the questioning moved on to North Korea and trade wars, the sober and tone remained, perhaps reinforced by the candidates’ caution. There were no fiery exchanges or outraged interruptions of the kind that go viral, but viewers saw plenty of substantive exchanges.

The closest thing to a jab came when Sanders said “Joe and I have a fundamental disagreement” on trade deals, which he said “increase the profits for multinational corporations.”

After 43 minutes, reporter Abby Phillip asked about the dustup between Warren and Sanders that had drawn heavy coverage in the days before the debate. And they both rushed to defuse it.

In a story undoubtedly leaked by the Warren camp, she says Sanders told her a year ago that a woman couldn’t win when she confided her plans to run for the White House.

When Phillip unfortunately presented Warren’s version as fact, Sanders said he never said that, called it “incomprehensible,” and noted he’d deferred to her in 2015, running only after she passed up the presidential race.

Warren, who has already benefited from the story, was careful not to contradict him, saying “Bernie is my friend, and I’m not here to try to fight with Bernie.” She quickly pivoted to how she had beaten Republicans and the virtues of female candidates.

What happened in those moments is not just that the two senators are ideologically aligned. Given Iowa’s history of rewarding a third candidate when two slug it out, they both calculated it was better to move on, and CNN didn’t press the issue.

Those in the media who have been hyping this spat seem to have forgotten how mild it is compared to the usual vitriol in primaries, especially compared to the name-calling and insults of the 2016 Republican campaign.

Even the discussion of health care—with Amy Klobuchar directly challenging Warren on Medicare for All—amounted to a reprise of past talking points.

The stakes are especially high with three weeks until the caucuses, as  polls show the top four bunched at the top. Biden, Sanders and Buttigieg have all led, at least within the margin of error, in at least one recent survey.

The second hour was fairly dull. CNN didn’t mention the word impeachment until an hour and a half in, and that produced the closest thing to an emotional moment. When Blitzer asked Biden about Trump going after his family, the former vice president said the Republicans had “savaged my surviving son,” gone after him, “told lies,” but that he “can’t hold a grudge” and would try to heal the country.

The clash came the night before House Democrats plan to finally send the impeachment articles to the Senate, whose trial is slated for next week. In fact, had Nancy Pelosi moved the articles a few days earlier, the debate would have been scrapped since the contenders include three senators who will be confined to the chamber every day that the trial is in session.

Feds arrest Avenatti during California Bar Association hearing

Westlake Legal Group AP19352614300424 Feds arrest Avenatti during California Bar Association hearing Louis Casiano fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/person/michael-avenatti fox news fnc/us fnc article 6d888c30-34b7-5560-839c-725e7510dbf4

Attorney Michael Avenatti was arrested by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agents Tuesday evening during a break in a disciplinary hearing in Los Angeles over allegations that the high-profile lawyer scammed a client out of $840,000.

The arrest occurred around 6 p.m. outside the State Bar Court, where the State Bar of California has initiated proceedings against him.

“I can confirm that he was arrested by federal agents,” Avenatti’s lawyer Dean Steward said. “I anticipate a bail hearing at 2 p.m. tomorrow in Magistrate’s Court in Santa Ana. I haven’t seen the details of the warrant, but should have it later this evening.“

Avenatti did not return to the court when the hearing resumed. His attorneys called for a sidebar with the judge and said he would not be able to return due to circumstances related to a criminal matter in Orange County.

The former lawyer for Stormy Daniels is accused of fraud, cheating on his taxes and lying to investigators. Federal prosecutors allege that he embezzled funds from clients. He has pleaded guilty to the charges.

Thom Mrozek, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles, told Fox News that Avenatti was arrested on suspicion of violating his pre-trial release.

“I do expect him to appear in federal court in Santa Ana tomorrow,” he said, adding that documents related to the arrest were under seal.

Tuesday’s hearing centered on allegations that Avenatti misappropriated $840,000 in settlement money owed to Gregory Barela, his former client. Barela made continued inquiries about the funds to Avenatti, and the attorney allegedly kept the cash for himself. He still owes Barela $710,000 but denies any wrongdoing.

Avenatti was supposed to travel to New York on Tuesday night for his criminal trial over his alleged plot to extort $25 million from sports apparel giant Nike.
