The Five on Avenatti: 'I Think He's Done as a Personality and Politician'
The panel on "The Five" reacted Wednesday to news that celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti will not face felony charges connected to domestic violence allegations.
Bila said Avenatti's defense team claimed in a statement to authorities that the alleged victim was possibly drunk at the time of the allegations and that acne medication may have caused a reported mark on her body.
Greg Gutfeld said that as a lawyer, Avenatti basically "has the instructions to a game board of life that you don't have."
"[Avenatti] might possibly get off, and maybe he should because we believe in justice and due process," Gutfeld said of the allegations. "He's getting better treatment than he gave [Justice Brett] Kavanaugh."
Gutfeld said Avenatti, who reportedly has 2020 presidential ambitions, is "done as a personality and a politician."
But, Gutfeld said he thought the same thing of Harlem, N.Y. civil rights activist Al Sharpton after the 1995 Freddie's Fashion Mart incident on 125th Street in New York City.
