GOP seeks prosecution of Michael Avenatti and Kavanaugh ‘gang rape’ accuser

Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee, is seeking criminal charges for one of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers and her attorney on the grounds that they intentionally mislead lawmakers.

Grassley accused Julie Swetnick and Michael Avenatti of wasting the committee’s time with unsubstantiated ‘gang rape’ allegations in a lengthy referral to the Department of Justice.

Swetnick claimed that Kavanaugh attended a party where a train of men assaulted her that she later walked back. She says she can’t say for certain that Kavanaugh was part of, aware of or even witnessed the alleged sexual misconduct.

Avenatti welcomed the threat of legal action, calling it ‘Christmas in October’ in a tweet that claimed Grassley had opened ‘Pandora’s box.’

Grassley said that he takes all information ‘seriously’ that’s provided by a ‘well-meaning’ citizen who comes forward with significant allegations. He noted that the committee heard testimony from Kavanugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford. 

‘It takes courage to come forward, especially with allegations of sexual misconduct or personal trauma. I’m grateful for those who find that courage,’ Grassley said. ‘But in the heat of partisan moments, some do try to knowingly mislead the committee. That’s unfair to my colleagues, the nominees and others providing information who are seeking the truth.’

He all but accused Swetnick and her attorney, Avenatti, of committing perjury in the letter and a statement that accompanies it, in addition to potentially obstructing justice.

‘Thankfully, the law prohibits such false statements to Congress and obstruction of congressional committee investigations. For the law to work, we can’t just brush aside potential violations. I don’t take lightly making a referral of this nature, but ignoring this behavior will just invite more of it in the future,’ Grassley said.

Avenatti responded: ‘Maybe if Grassley was actually a lawyer that knew something about the law, he would realize what he has done. He just opened up Pandora’s box as it relates to Justice Kavanaugh’s conduct. It is Christmas in October! 

The attorney who represented Stormy Daniels in her losing case against the president said, ‘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.’
