A remarkable few days, including the news that Michael Avenatti was arrested by federal authorities and charged with extortion and fraud. Now his alleged co-conspirator, Mark Geragos has been fired from his TV job. At this point, this is the least of Geragos’ worries.
A CNN spokesperson told the Washington Examiner Monday that its longtime legal analyst Mark Geragos is “no longer a CNN contributor.”
Geragos, 61, the alleged co-conspirator in the criminal case against celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti made hundreds of appearances on CNN while working for the news organization.
His firing was so hasty that CNN had not had a chance to update its website and still had him listed as a “legal analyst”. He has made numerous appearances on CNN, frequently discussing the notable and often polarizing figures he represents. He is currently representing Jussie Smollett, who is accused of faking a hate crime for his own benefit. Geragos appeared on the network this month to discuss the case.
