Stormy Daniels, client of celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti, just lost her defamation lawsuit aimed at President Donald Trump.
This is a win for Trump.
This is likewise a crushing blow for Avenatti and Daniels.

Trump atty Charles Harder on Stormy Daniels defamation suit: "No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr. Avenatti, can truthfully characterize today’s ruling in any way other than total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels."

Enter a defiant Avenatti:
Re Judge’s limited ruling: Daniels’ other claims against Trump and Cohen proceed unaffected. Trump’s contrary claims are as deceptive as his claims about the inauguration attendance.
We will appeal the dismissal of the defamation cause of action and are confident in a reversal.

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) did not attend law school.
When he pointed this out, celebrity activist lawyer Michael Avenatti, who represented Stormy Daniels and a Brett Kavanaugh accuser, thought he was being clever.
Then, with just one tweet, the Senate Judiciary account fired back hard.
Avenatti should feel very silly.
Am I correct that @ChuckGrassley never attended law school? How is it possible that the Senate Judiciary Comm Chairman has no legal experience? No wonder he doesn’t understand issues like “perjury,” FBI investigations, and which clients I have represented over the last 18 yrs.

The Iowa farmer beat the all-time record for most circuit court nominees confirmed in a single Congress – and that's on top of two Supreme Court Justices.

Grassley attended the same law school as Judiciary Ranking Member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).
She did not attend law school, either.
1) Feinstein doesn't have a law degree, either.
2) Did you know there are no qualifications – not even a law degree – for serving on the Supreme Court?
2) If the laws are so difficult to comprehend that you need a law degree to understand them, the country is failing. https://t.co/BliEiucIG9

Whereas you're so smart that you almost single-handedly ensured Kavanaugh got confirmed to the Supreme Court

Why would you subject poor paramedics to the lunacy of Avenatti?
Have you no sense of decency?

And yet he is the Chairman of a Senate Committee and you are representing porn stars and challenging people to wrestling matches…
