The would-be darling of the left and ‘creepy porn lawyer’ aka Michael Avenatti, has been released from prison on $1 million bond. The former attorney for Stormy Daniels, who alleged sexual misconduct with the president, claims he had a bout of pneumonia and should be released for his own health and safety.
According to the NBC:
Attorney Michael Avenatti, who represented adult film actress Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against President Donald Trump, was granted temporary release from his New York City prison on Friday due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Avenatti, 49, claimed that a recent bout if pneumonia in September put him at greater risk for contracting the coronavirus.
He will be released from the Metropolitan Correctional Center on a $1million bond and placed into quarantine for 14 days at a Federal Bureau of Prisons facility to ensure he’s not infected with the coronavirus.

Avenatti’s bond was posted by Hubert Bromma, who wrote a book titled ‘How to Invest in Offshore Real Estate and Pay Little or No Taxes.’
ABC News reports that once he’s completed the mandated quarantine, Avenatti will be allowed to leave for Los Angeles to stay at a friend’s home for 90 days.
A federal California judge, who granted Avenatti’s release, has ordered that he will not be allowed out of the home except for emergencies and must wear a monitoring bracelet.
He also can’t use the internet, make financial transactions of more than $500 or open a new bank or credit accounts.
Avenatti was initially denied temporary release in late March after U.S. District Court Judge James Selna found no credible reason to remove him from custody.
