Avenatti just stunned Trump Jr. into silence with a bold prediction and a piercing question

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Stormy Daniels as well as Brett Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick, is waging an impassioned war against the Trump administration. He’s proven himself to be an outspoken opponent of the president’s incessant cruelties and shown himself more than willing to fight their fiery rhetoric in kind.

Avenatti’s most recent target is Donald Trump Jr., the bumbling beneficiary of his father’s corruption and a gleeful surrogate of the administration’s agenda. In a new tweet, Avenatti tagged @DonaldTrumpJr and asked him to confirm that he has “no reason” to believe that he is soon to be indicted for making false statements to federal agents.

The attorney added that “this could not happen to a nicer guy” and asked if President Trump plans to pardon him. The entire tweet is dripping in sarcasm and mockery and is exactly what Donald Trump Jr. deserves after all the damage he’s helped inflict on our democracy. It’s unclear what Avenatti actually knows or who his source is, but his track record would seem to indicate that there is something to this accusation.

When Trump Jr. failed to respond, Avenatti penned a follow-up tweet, referring to Trump Jr. as “Bif,” presumably a reference to Biff Tannen, the wealthy, bullying villain from the Back to the Future films. Avenatti claimed that Trump Jr.’s silence on a possible pending indictment is “making conservatives very uneasy.”

He doubled down on his claim that he has specific knowledge of just such an indictment, and that it’s going to be “very bad news” for President Trump. Clearly, he’s quite confident in his information and expects the bombshell news to hit soon.

Hopefully, Avenatti’s prediction bears fruit and Trump’s son faces justice soon. At which point, the president will have to decide whether it’s worth the political risk to try to pardon him, or whether he’ll simply let his son take the fall. Given Donald Trump’s long history of corruption the first eventuality doesn’t seem impossible, but given his selfishness, neither does the latter seem unlikely.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!
