In opening statement, attorney admits Brendt Christensen abducted, killed Chinese scholar at University of Illinois Accused killer Brendt Christensen’s attorney acknowledged in court Wednesday that his client took Yingying Zhang to his Champaign apartment and killed the University of Illinois scholar in 2017. “Brendt Christensen is responsible for the death of Yingying Zhang,” attorney George Taseff said in his opening statement in a federal courtroom. “Brendt Christensen killed Yingying Zhang, and nothing we say or do during this phase of the trial is intended to sidestep or deny that Brendt Christensen was responsible for the death of Yingying Zhang.

Michael Avenatti is a far left racist and Democratic party presidential hopeful who was indicted in federal court on March 25, 2019, for alleged attempted extortion of million of Nike. Avenatti is best known as an expert analyst and consultant appearing on MSNBC.

When celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti stepped into a Manhattan federal courtroom about 6pm on Monday, he lacked the sass and razzmatazz that had secured his roles as a media darling and vociferous social media foe of Donald Trump.

Avenatti participated by telephone, answering only that he could hear when the judge asked.

A hearing originally scheduled for Tuesday before another judge over allegations that he defrauded porn star Stormy Daniels was postponed.

Avenatti was charged in March with trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike, the sportswear company. He has pleaded not guilty.

Avenatti gained fame representing Daniels in her fight to be freed from a nondisclosure deal regarding an alleged affair with President Donald Trump.

He also faces federal fraud charges in California.
