If anyone thought that Brett Kavanaugh was going to somehow escape sexual assault allegations by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, their opinions may have changed significantly as of early this morning.
Not only did a bombshell report emerge from Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer of The New Yorker, but now attorney Michael Avenatti is representing a group of individuals with allegations of their own. After Farrow and Mayer released their story of a second woman who alleges sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, during his days at Yale University, Michael Avenatti took to Twitter with multiple bombshells of his own.
At 7:33 PM ET last night Avenatti tweeted:
“I represent a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge. We will be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee and will likewise be demanding that Judge and others be subpoenaed to testify. The nomination must be withdrawn. My client is not Deborah Ramirez (the woman discussed in Farrow’s article).”
This was then following up by another tweet about two hours later, in which Avenatti published a letter which he had sent to the Chief Counsel for Nominations for the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary:
“Dear Mr. Davis:
Thank you for your email. We are aware of significant evidence of multiple house parties in the Washington, D.C. area during the early 1980s during which Brett Kavanaugh, Mark Judge and others would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them. There are multiple witnesses that will corroborate these facts and each of them must be called to testify publicly. “
The letter went on to list six questions that Avenatti suggested the Senate investigators ask Kavanaugh, including whether he has ever targeted any women for rape at house parties, or if he has ever seen Mark Judge do so.
Avenatti then followed up with yet another tweet:
The attorney has confirmed with Politico that he is currently representing a group of individuals who will corroborate the allegations which involved Brett Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge, and that one of these individuals is a victim.
Avenatti is playing this smart, however, by allowing the public to hear from this victim without going through the Senate Judiciary Committee to do so.
“She will testify,” Avenatti told Politico. “But before she does, she will likely appear on camera for an interview.”
This is a developing story.
