John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Report: Avenatti To Be Indicted On Charges Related To Stormy Daniels

Michael Avenatti

Disgraced celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti will be indicted on federal charges related to his former client, Stormy Daniels, ABC News is reporting.

According to the network, the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan is expected to issue the indictment. The same prosecutors are handling another extortion case involving Avenatti, who was once a prominent guest on CNN and MSNBC.

Avenatti was indicted in New York on March 25 on charges that he tried to extort Nike, the sports apparel company. The disgraced lawyer was also indicted in California on charges that he evaded taxes and bilked clients out of settlement money.

Avenatti allegedly hid a $4 million settlement that was supposed to be paid out to a mentally-ill, paraplegic man he represented in a lawsuit in Los Angeles.

Avenatti said Tuesday that he expected to be indicted again, but he did not say that the case involved Daniels.

“I expect an indictment to issue from SDNY in the next 48 hrs charging me in connection with my arrest in March,” he tweeted.

“I intend on fighting these bogus/legally baseless allegations, and will plead not guilty to ALL CHARGES. I look forward to the trial where I can begin to clear my name.”

Avenatti represented Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, in legal battles with President Trump and his former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 in October 2016 as part of a detail to prevent the adult film actress from discussing an alleged affair she had with Trump in 2006.

Cohen pleaded guilty on Aug. 21, 2018 to a campaign finance violation because of the payment.

Avenatti appeared frequently on TV to berate Cohen and Trump. But he also used that platform to pick up new clients that he used to elevate his political standing. He represented Julie Swetnick, a woman who claimed that she was drugged at raped at parties attended by Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh.

No evidence has emerged to support Swetnick’s claims, and several people who know her have questioned her allegations.

Avenatti at one point last year floated the idea of running for president in 2020.
