Michael Avenatti Unveils Third Brett Kavanaugh Accuser

Michael Avenatti, attorney for porn actress Stormy Daniels, arrives at U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, Monday, Sept. 24, 2018. Lawyers for President Donald Trump are going to court to urge a judge to toss out a lawsuit by the actress, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, over a hush-money deal over their alleged affair. Avenatti is expected to argue that the agreement that resulted in a $130,000 payout was not valid and they won't carry out threats to sue her for breaking the agreement. (AP Photo/Reed Saxon)

Michael Avenatti said Wednesday that Julie Swetnick, a Washington, D.C., resident, is his client who is accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, marking the third woman to come forward with claims against the Supreme Court nominee in just over a week.

Avenatti, who also represents the adult film star Stormy Daniels, said in a tweet Sunday that he had a new client with “credible information” regarding Kavanaugh and his friend from high school, Mark Judge.

 

 

However, he said his client was not Deborah Ramirez, the second woman to come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct by the judge. Ramirez, in an interview with The New Yorker that was published Sunday, claimed Kavanaugh exposed himself to her and thrust his penis in her face during a party when they were both students at Yale University in the 1980s. Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the claims.

Avenatti leveled a separate, shocking allegation against Kavanaugh on Twitter late Sunday, showing what appeared to be a screenshot of an email he sent to the chief counsel for nominations to the Senate Judiciary Committee. In the message, the attorney said he claimed to have evidence that Kavanaugh and Judge participated in the “targeting” of women at house parties with “alcohol/drugs.” Avenatti has repeatedly called for Kavanaugh’s nomination to be withdrawn.

“We don’t need to be putting someone like that on Supreme Court for life,” he said during remarks at a launch party for newly formed political action committee “OMG WTF” on Thursday in Los Angeles. “When you talk about the U.S. Supreme Court you are effectively talking about nine kings who have a tremendous amount of power,” Avenatti added. “In fact, many would argue, including me, that they have more power than any president does.”
