As the Sword of Damocles in the shape of Russia probe is hanging over Donald Trump’s head, he might soon be jailed for the alleged crimes he has committed in connivance with enemy nation Russia.

However, if Trump survived, he will have to face the firebrand lawyer Michael Avenatti who has expressed his willingness to run for presidency in the 2020 election.

Avenatti – the lawyer for an American pornographic actress Stormy Daniels who has sued Trump – said Saturday that he will be the right Democratic candidate to defeat Trump.

Announcing his candidature, Avenatti also released a strategy document titled “Fire with Fire” in which he has detailed his vision for America and his intention to join active politics.

“Trump doesn’t have the character, the heart, the knowledge, or the wisdom to be president. There was a time when I still had hope that the office would change the man, but unfortunately the man has changed the office,” Avenatti said.

Meanwhile, a new film Active Measures shows a decades long connection between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. It includes new reporting on Trump’s dealings with Russian mob figures, and expert analysis on the largest and most effectively executed espionage operation in history—Russia’s meddling in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

The chattering classes believe that gallows are waiting for Trump. The investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller who is leading a judicial team to know the extent of Trump-Russia ties that allegedly helped Trump win the 2016 presidential race has already reached the White House.

Many of Trump’s associates are already in Mueller’s dragnet and it is expected that soon Trump will also be interrogated for his inappropriate links with Russia. And in all probability, he will be impeached and jailed.

These days, Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani – who was working hand in glove with Trump during the presidential campaign – is making a last-ditch attempt to save Trump by claiming that “collusion with Russia is not a crime” while Trump keeps saying there was no collusion with Russia.

It is believed that Rudy Giuliani may also be the target of investigation that Mueller is conducting. Conjectures are also rife that Giuliani – who failed to get any post in Trump Administration despite his closeness to Trump – has come to take revenge and will get Trump implicated.

Avenatti has challenged Rudy Giuliani to face him in an open debate. “I’m still waiting for Rudy Giuliani to have the guts to appear opposite me. Every time he discovers we are scheduled to appear together on a show, he and Trump pull the plug. If I’m not a threat, then they should be begging to embarrass me. Either step up or be quiet,” he tweeted.

At a time when all odds are stacked against Trump because of his alleged ties with Russia, it may be difficult for him to survive and run for presidency in 2020. However, if he survived to run, he will find a tough opponent in Avenatti who wants to quell fire with fire.
