Michael Avenatti is a lawyer who became famous for repping Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claimed she had an affair with President Trump. He tweeted in July 2018 he would run for president in 2020 if Trump sought re-election. Avenatti would find himself embroiled in controversy just 4 months later when he was arrested for felony domestic assault. He vehemently denied the allegations.
