Serious questions raised over ‘creepy porn lawyer’ Michael Avenatti’s new claim against Kavanaugh

By now, pretty much everyone knows that Michael Avenatti, the attorney dubbed “creepy porn lawyer” over his association with Stormy Daniels, is representing Julie Swetnick, a woman who alleges that Judge Brett Kavanaugh played a role in facilitating gang rapes of high school girls at drunken high school parties back in the 1980s.  But serious questions have been raised and holes have already been poked in the allegations presented by Avenatti by — get this — the liberal Washington Post, among many others.

According to the Post:

In a declaration, Julie Swetnick, who attended Gaithersburg High School, said she observed Kavanaugh drinking excessively at house parties and engaging “in abusive and physically aggressive behavior toward girls.”

Swetnick said she witnessed efforts by Kavanaugh and others to get girls inebriated so they could be “gang raped” in side rooms at house parties by a “train” of numerous boys.

“I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their ‘turn’ with a girl inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh.”

So, Twitchy asked, just how firm is her recollection?  The Post further states:

In her declaration, Swetnick recounts an alleged incident in approximately 1982 in which she says she was the victim of a “gang rape” at which Kavanaugh was present.

She does not say Kavanaugh participated in the alleged rape or what, if any, role he played, nor does she say where the alleged episode took place.

There’s more.  The National Review summarized many of the key questions raised by the affidavit, including the fact that Swetnick says she attended at least ten of these house parties during a three-year period, that allegedly began when Kavanaugh was 15 or 16 years old.

According to Swetnick, these parties “occurred nearly every weekend during the school year.”  So why was she there if this is the kind of activity taking place?  Where were the parents?

The National Review added:

She contends Kavanaugh and his friends engaged in criminal activities including sexual assault “on numerous occasions.” From that description, it sounds like she witnessed sexual assaults and then continued to attend the parties.

She contends Kavanaugh and Mark Judge obtained either alcohol or drugs such as Quaaludes to spike the punch at these parties.

She contends “numerous boys” were involved in multiple acts of sexual assault, and literally lined up outside the room to wait their turn to commit sexual assault.

As far as we know, not a single person — not a witness nor a victim — contacted police nor did they ever inform a responsible adult.  And, Jim Geraghty added, Swetnick is the only person to come forward with these allegations.

“Nothing relating to this multi-year conspiracy to commit repeated acts of ritualized sexual assault ever came up in six FBI background checks or White House security-clearance checks,” Geraghty added.

Moreover, Avenatti did himself no favors when he dodged questions about Kavanaugh’s alleged involvement during an appearance on “The View.”

Others expressed concerns as well:



How does that happen?

Amazing, isn’t it?

Swetnick, by the way, claimed:

In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these “gang” or “train” rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present. Shortly after the incident, I shared what had transpired with at least two other people. During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me. I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking.”

I also witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be “gang raped” in a side room or bedroom by a “train” of numerous boys. I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their “turn” with a girl inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh.”

Cassandra Fairbanks correctly wondered: “If her allegations are true and end up being proven, wouldn’t she be considered an accessory to the other rapes that she knew were occurring and did nothing to stop?”

Others noticed that as well:


Then there’s this:

Did Swetnick commit a crime by attending lewd drunken parties with minors?

One would think so.


“Julie Swetnick should be sweating right about now. Either she’s guilty of lying, or she’s guilty of covering up a crime. Repeatedly,” Twitchy said.

President Trump also weighed in: “Avenatti is a third rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He is just looking for attention and doesn’t want people to look at his past record and relationships – a total low-life!” he said on Twitter.


Kavanaugh, by the way, denied the allegations, calling them something from the “Twilight Zone.”

“This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don’t know who this is and this never happened,” he said.

On a final note, judging from what we’ve seen in these yearbooks, we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that this type of activity took place, but that doesn’t mean Kavanaugh was involved.
