After NBC report Charles Grassley criminally refers Michael Avenatti to the DOJ for a second time

October 27, 2018

  It has been a bad couple of days for Michael Avenatti. First Charles Grassley referred he and his client, Julie Swetnick to the Department of Justice for a criminal investigation  for lying to the Congress during the Brett Kavanaugh hearing and then yesterday NBC came out with a report that claimed that Michael Avenatti basically lied about some of the accusations Julie Swetnick was making.

  Because of this report Charles Grassley has referred Michael Avenatti to the Department of Justice a second time for further investigation.

  At this point it should be noted that it is being reported NBC had this information during the hearing and sat on it in their zest to bring down Brett Kavanaugh. Now that Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed they have decided they might as well release what they are calling “new information.” Think about that for a moment: these were not just allegations of some type of inappropriate touching, these were serious allegations of drugging and gang raping several women and NBC had information which would refute these claims and decided it was not worth reporting. This is not just journalistic malpractice, it enters the territory of journalistic malfeasance.

  Back to Michael Avenatti, here is more:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) announced Friday that he is issuing a second criminal referral regarding lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Grassley announced the move a day after referring Avenatti and his client, Julie Swetnick, to the Justice Department for a potential criminal investigation into whether they made false statements to Congress about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The GOP chairman indicated that the second referral was precipitated by an NBC News report on Thursday, which contended that Swetnick denied making key allegations, saying that Avenatti “twisted [her] words.”

Grassley wrote that based on the NBC report, “the purported declarant denied – both before and after the sworn statement was released – the key allegations Mr. Avenatti attributed to her.”

“She stated she was clear and consistent ‘from day one’ with Mr. Avenatti that those claims were not true. And she said Mr. Avenatti ‘twisted [her] words.’ When reporters pressed him on these discrepancies, Mr. Avenatti attempted to deceive them in an apparent effort to thwart the truth coming out,” Grassley wrote.

  Michael Avenatti responded in a not so professional manner by saying Charles Grassley was “full of crap” and he wanted to prove it ASAP. He also made the claim this would put Brett Kavanaugh at risk for being removed from the Supreme Court although it is hard to envision any scenario in which that could happen at this point.

  Michael Avenatti is a guy who was clearly out to make a name for himself while the Stormy Daniels iron was hot and he saw his opportunity. He did not care how he made his name and he did not care who he hurt in the process and this includes a future Supreme Court Justice and even his client.

    Avenatti is the kind of lawyer that makes ambulance chasers look reputable.

    Seems as those these MSM are interfering with the wheels of Justice – “obstruction of Justice.” … deliberate sedition against a court official to undermine the integrity of the evidence and investigation.
