It seems that there are a lot of Democrats in America who think that creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is the only reason that Justice Brett Kavanaugh ended up on the Supreme Court.
The thing is that it is more than likely that Kavanaugh was going to be confirmed one way or the other. Avenatti certainly helped push things along with his “gang rape” accusations from his client, Julie Swetnick. It was pretty obvious that the allegations were all a part of the ploy to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
Now, Avenatti is being criticized after NBC released a report claiming that a woman says the lawyer “misrepresented” her when he claimed that she had backed up Swetnick’s gang rape accusations.
From The Daily Caller:
A woman who Michael Avenatti claimed backed his client Julie Swetnick’s allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has recanted her story and is accusing Avenatti, a potential 2020 presidential hopeful, of “twisting” her words.
The saga is laid out in a new report from NBC News, which interviewed Swetnick on Oct. 1, days after Avenatti released a sworn declaration in which she accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.
In an effort to bolster Swetnick’s allegations, Avenatti put NBC reporters in touch with the second woman for a phone interview on Sept. 30. He published her sworn declaration on Twitter on Oct. 2.
NBC said that the “witness'” statements from the Sept. 30 interview did not match up with Avenatti’s declaration.
It’s important to note that NBC showed the Julie Swetnick interview on air, even though they were aware that the claim was questionable. NBC was well aware that the story didn’t piece together properly, and was not confirmed, but they chose to air it anyway.
The report also notes that a second woman, identified by Avenatti as someone who could corroborate Swetnick’s claims, also provided inconsistent accounts and refused to reiterate specific charges made in her sworn statement provided to the network by Avenatti. For example, the woman’s statement claims she witnessed Kavanaugh “spike” the punch at high school parties in an effort to get girls drunk. Yet when asked about this by NBC News, “the same woman told NBC News a different story,” much like Swetnick.
What’s interesting about the NBC News story is that all of the relevant interviews and reporting occurred weeks ago, while the Senate was still considering whether to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Yet only now is NBC disclosing this information and claiming there are “new questions” about Avenatti’s allegations.
It seems as though Congress is gearing up to hold Avenatti responsible. It was reported this week that Congress has made a move against him:
The man lied to Congress and must be held accountable.
