On Thursday, while the mainstream media was obsessing over a bomber who wasn’t, Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley sent Attorney General Jeff Sessions an extensive 29-page criminal referral for Michael Avenatti and his co-conspirator Julie Sweathog.
Grassley has outlined the potential charges against Avenatti and Swetnick and is asking Sessions to order an investigation of the perjury that they conspired to engage in to bolster the out-of-control Democratic Party’s effort to destroy Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Senator Grassley outlined three potential violations: (1) Providing False Statements; (2) Obstructing Congressional Investigations; and (3) Mueller and Rosenstein’s favorite DOJ charge: “Conspiracy”.
From page nine of the referral:
In short, it appears Ms. Swetnick has a substantial history of credibility issues. When viewed in light of the fact there is no credible evidence she ever knew Judge Kavanaugh, and the fact she has contradicted key aspects of her allegations against him, this lends credence to the likelihood that she made materially false statements to the Committee in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001. Those statements obstructed the Judiciary Committee’s efforts to investigate allegations against Judge Kavanaugh and the processing of his nomination, potentially in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1505. Given Mr. Avenatti’s role in this with Ms. Swetnick, along with Mr. Avenatti’s own substantial credibility issues (discussed next), there may have been a conspiracy to violate these laws, in potential violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371.
The referral is outlined on the Senate Judiciary Committee’s website:
WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley today referred Julie Swetnick and her attorney Michael Avenatti to the Justice Department for criminal investigation relating to a potential conspiracy to provide materially false statements to Congress and obstruct a congressional committee investigation, three separate crimes, in the course of considering Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States.
That brings us to the question, will the mainstream media ever be held accountable for their complicity in trying to destroy all things Trump?
"Avenatti’s witness, the woman he brought forward to bolster Swetnick’s serial rape claim, totally recanted to NBC News, and NBC News hid this news until now." https://t.co/4d4owbx5MD

NBC News deliberately hid vital information that would have helped clear Brett Kavanaugh of the serial rape allegations Julie Swetnick and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, leveled against him.
On September 16, Kavanaugh and his loved ones were dropped into a pit of hell due to allegations of sexual assault from Christine Blasey Ford.
NBC News and Avenatti played a huge role in this obscene smear campaign. One notable example was NBC breathlessly publishing and airing an assault allegation against Kavanaugh that was quickly exposed as a hoax. NBC did not even bother to independently corroborate this allegation prior to airing it. A Democrat handed NBC the smear, and NBC ran with it.
To make matters worse, we now know NBC News withheld crucial information that undermined the allegations made by Swetnick, the Avenatti client who accused a high school-aged Kavanaugh of spiking punch bowls at house parties so he and his buddies could engage in serial rapes.
And we know NBC deliberately withheld this crucial information because NBC is now admitting it had this information all the way back on September 30.
NBC knowingly violated the most sacred canon of journalistic integrity. This comes as little surprise to those of us who have watched the mainstream media savagely lie to destroy Donald Trump, and his MAGA movement to ferret out corruption in the D.C. swamp, over the past three years.
And, as for Avenatti, he’s become reminiscent of Baghdad Bob.
It is ironic that Senator Grassley now is interested in investigations. He didn’t care when it came to putting a man on the SCOTUS for life. We welcome the investigation as now we can finally get to the bottom of Judge Kavanaugh’s lies and conduct. Let the truth be known.

Having heavily vested himself in gaining favor with Democrats in a gamble to escape the liability brought on by his crumbling law practice, Avenatti now finds himself whistling in the dark as the walls of justice close in around him.
