Avenatti claims he was told Trump is behind his indictment

Michael Avenatti believes his indictment Wednesday is a product of political revenge by the Trump administration, alleging one Republican close to the president said it “had Trump’s fingerprints all over it.”

While many of his former friends in media and politics have abandoned him, Avenatti says he’s still receiving support from an unlikely source: individuals close to the president.

“Two Republicans have” reached out in support, Avenatti told the Washington Examiner in an interview. “I would describe them as two Republicans with close ties to the president,” Avenatti said before claiming that one of them told him the indictment was likely inspired by Trump.
