You all recall who Julie Swetnick is, right? She is the woman who said that Brett Kavanaugh had participated in gang rapes at high school parties. She connected with Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who became famous for his representation of Stormy Daniels the porn star.
Avenatti sent a statement that he took from Ms. Swetnick to the FBI, and offered on her behalf that she was willing to testify as to Judge (now Justice) Kavanaugh’s youthful misdeeds. The day before the supplemental hearing that was scheduled to hear the accusations by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Avenotti went public with Ms. Swetnick’s allegation.
Here is a summary version from the Washington Post:
She said in an affidavit that Kavanaugh was present at a house party in 1982 where she alleges she was the victim of a gang rape.
Kavanaugh immediately issued a statement in response: “This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don’t know who this is and this never happened.”
Enemy of the People
So here is how NBC News showed themselves to be the Enemy of the People. The Daily Caller has the story. On September 27,
…Avenatti claimed … that he knew a second woman who could back up Swetnick’s allegations.
The second woman wrote in a declaration, “During the years 1981-82, I witnessed firsthand Brett Kavanaugh, together with others, ‘spike’ the ‘punch’ at house parties I attended with Quaaludes and/or grain alcohol. I understood this was being done for the purpose of making girls more likely to engage in sexual acts and less likely to say ‘No.’”
But that second woman contacted NBC News to say that Avenatti had her story wrong.
The second woman, however, contradicted those claims in a phone interview with NBC on September 30, just a few days before Avenatti published her declaration. “I didn’t ever think it was Brett,” she told NBC.
She later texted NBC on October 4 after reviewing the declaration published by Avenatti, writing, “It is incorrect that I saw Brett spike the punch. I didn’t see anyone spike the punch … I was very clear with Michael Avenatti from day one.”
But NBC News sat on that information. They did not disclose this information until after the Senate had voted to confirm Justice Kavanaugh. NBC News allowed their comrades in Leftist Big Media continue to call Brett Kavanaugh a “serial rapist” and a “gang rapist,” knowing that the gang rape story had holes in it, and that the alleged witnesses disputed the story. In particular they had the comments from this one key witness, but they chose to stifle that information.
