Charles Grassley refers Michael Avenatti and Julie Swetnick to the Justice Department for criminal investigation

October 25, 2018

  It looks like there could be some fallout from the Brett Kavanaugh hearing as it is being reported here that Charles Grassley has referred Michael  Avenatti and Julie Swetnick to the Justice Department for a criminal investigation for lying to the Congress. Here is more:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Thursday referred lawyer Michael Avenatti and a woman he represents to the Justice Department and the FBI for criminal investigation, claiming they made potentially false statements to Congress about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and alleged sexual misconduct.

Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, cited “contradictions” between what Avenatti’s client, Julie Swetnick, originally told the Judiciary Committee about Kavanaugh in an affidavit in late September, and what she said about the then-Supreme Court nominee days later in an interview with NBC News.

In his letter Thursday to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray asking for an investigation, Grassley listed “potential violations” of federal criminal code, specifically “conspiracy, false statements and obstruction of Congress.”

“Swetnick made her allegations in a sworn statement to the committee on September 26. In an October 1 interview with NBC News, however, Swetnick specifically and explicitly back-tracked or contradicted key parts of her sworn statement on these and other allegations,” the Judiciary Committee said in a statement.

“In subsequent interviews, Avenatti likewise cast serious doubt on or contradicted the allegations while insisting that he had thoroughly vetted his client,” according to the statement.

  While Christine Ford’s accusations were unproven and without credible witnesses they were at least plausible. One can easily see how back in the day Brett Kavanaugh might have been interested in Christine Ford and put the moves on her only to be rejected. One could also see how decades later both people might have a different interpretation of what happened. 

  The same cannot be said for Julie Swetnick’s outrageous claims of Brett Kavanaugh repeatedly being involved in gang rape. To think that she saw the future Supreme Court Justice involved in this type of activity 10 times and not only said nothing but also kept returning to the “rape parties” takes a willing suspension of disbelief and now she could be about to pay the price for taking the advice of a lawyer who obviously was looking for his 15 minutes of fame.

    I have only one reaction to this report and I it’s called unbridled skepticism.

    “Soap Opera” thinking.
    While visiting a high sch friend in AZ I noticed she had a soup on and when taking later, its as if that was her “reference” of by which to viewing and live her life and relationships – we were all “just living the DRAMA”. I’d mentioned “feeding what we want to grow in our lives” and “starving the other”, she ‘liked’ that idea, but it didn’t fit in the matrix of her Programming Drama Framework Design. When the ‘flesh’ rules over a person, or the mindset of a society, it wants to be ‘tantalized’ not disciplined!

        I agree but nobody cares about these women any more. Isn’t it funny how quickly people stopped caring about these so-called victims when they couldn’t use them anymore? The same thing happened with Roy Moore and with Ben Carson.

    For just once…..just once….let me see justice done……then let me see Sessions hit the road. All I am asking from the upcoming election.

      I don’t think we are going to see any justice here either but I do think after the election we will see Sessions gone and it won’t be a minute too soon.
