Michael Avenatti not Julie Swetnick helped get Brett Kavanaugh confirmed

In the aftermath of the announcements by three swing Senators to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court tomorrow, a battle erupted based on Senator Susan Collins’ assertion that the third sexual misconduct allegation against Kavanaugh may have swayed her towards supporting him.

“This outlandish allegation was put forth without any credible supporting evidence and simply parroted public statements of others,” Collins said in her speech on the Senate floor.

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for third accuser Julie Swetnick and coincidentally the lawyer for porn actress Stormy Daniels, took to Twitter to attack Collins.

So far, Collins hasn’t replied to the Tweets. Hopefully she won’t.

Thanks to Collins, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), and all Republican Senators other than Lisa Murkowski in Alaska, Kavanaugh is almost certain to be confirmed Saturday. What role did Avenatti play in this? Quite a bit, to the point that some on the left are even questioning Avenatti’s loyalties and motives:

The third accusation

When Christine Blasey Ford came forward, nearly everyone on the left called for a full stop while some on the right wanted to hit the pause button on Kavanaugh’s confirmation. She accused him of attempted rape when they were in high school. The second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, had a story in New Yorker Magazine that drew criticism from even leftist publications like the NY Times and Washington Post for lack of corroboration, but it was a plausible story in light of the Ford accusations. Allegedly at a college party Kavanaugh exposed himself and touched Ramirez with his penis.

Avenatti orchestrated the grand unveiling of the third accusation by Swetnick. Instead of doing what any good attorney would do in this situation, he instead teased its release on social media to shine the spotlight on himself. He promised a bombshell. What he delivered was Swetnick’s story of over ten parties she attended where Kavanaugh and his cronies gang raped teenage girls and at least one adult – Swetnick herself.

The obvious questions started popping up such as why an adult woman would continue to attend parties where she knew teenage boys were constantly gang raping girls. Her sworn statement was loaded with outrageous accusations that seemed to be peppered in with an intended focus on Swetnick’s accusations that Kavanaugh would get very drunk and aggressive towards girls.

It didn’t make sense. Why focus the attention on aggressive drunken behavior with brief mentions of gang rapes? Then, Swetnick did an interview on Kavanaugh-hating MSNBC. Reluctantly, the interview had to place a disclaimer ahead of the interview because she and her producers realized there were multiple inconsistencies between her sworn statement and the answers she gave during the interview.

Avenatti botched the sworn statement. Then he botched preparations for his client ahead of the interview. While Democrats rightly wanted to focus on Ford’s accusation and testimony, Republicans were able to invoke Swetnick’s gang-rape-ringleader accusation to point out how outrageous ALL of the claims were. It played well for supporters of Kavanaugh and left his detractors in a lurch.

It’s very possible that had Avenatti properly guided his client through the process from sworn statement to interview, Kavanaugh may have lost a vote or two. Collins’ indications and history would make her a prime candidate to vote against if it weren’t for the gang rape allegations that seemed too outrageous to be anything other than a smear by Democrats.

If Swetnick had a good lawyer, her sworn statement would have done a better job at portraying the events as Swetnick remembered them. A better lawyer would have prepared Swetnick to deliver an interview that matched the story in her sworn statement. A better lawyer would have allowed Swetnick to be the focus of the story instead of himself.

Do you know the names of Ford’s or Ramirez’ lawyers? I’d need to look them up.

The unhinged left, of which Avenatti is a card-bearing member, will do anything to discredit conservatives. Americans are learning this and realizing they can’t just take their words at face value.
