Michael Avenatti, attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels, blamed far-right conspiracy theorist Jacob Wohl for his recent arrest on domestic violence charges, according to NBC News.
> "First Mueller and now me," Avenatti tweeted. "When we are fully exonerated I am coming for you Jacob Wohl aka Surefire."
> Wohl, a supporter of President Donald Trump, was recently implicatedin a convoluted scheme to falsely accuse special counsel Robert Mueller of sexual misconduct.
> The plan, which has been referred to the FBI for investigation, had called for Wohl to bring forward women with misconduct allegations against Mueller. The allegations were supposedly uncovered through an investigation outfit called Surefire Intelligence.
Following Avenatti’s Wednesday arrest, Surefire posted an article about the incident on Twitter, accompanied by the comment: "Surefire Intelligence strikes again."
Avenatti was taken into custody by Los Angeles police on Wednesday, in connection to an alleged act of felony domestic violence.
Wohl said Surefire was not involved with Avenatti’s arrest and said he did not send the tweet suggesting otherwise.
> Wohl told NBC News on Thursday that Avenatti's tweet amounted to a criminal threat.
> “Michael Avenatti’s criminal threats against me are being reported to law enforcement as we speak," Wohl said.
> Wohl insisted he has a legitimate reason to fear Avenatti.
> "Coming from a guy who is on bail for a violent felony, it’s quite unnerving," he said.
