This week in America, we are learning a great deal about how our legal system operates under the strains of a “he said, she said” sort of case.
Both Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh provided us, the American people, and our public servants on the Senate Judiciary Committee, compelling testimony late last week. For Kavanaugh, who was clearly agitated, his internal strife was on full display as he raged against the accusatory tone of the democratic lawmakers he was tasked to answer. For Dr. Ford, there was a strong undercurrent of doubt for many Americans, specifically when it came to information outside of the purview of the sexual assaults allegation she has leveled against Judge Kavanaugh.
Of note were the bizarre circumstances surrounding Dr. Ford’s frequent flights for vacation, but her unwillingness to fly to DC to be heard earlier than last Thursday.
Now, another woman who accuses Brett Kavanaugh of sexual impropriety is having her allegations examined. Her incredible claims not only outweigh Dr. Ford’s in sheer depravity, but, it seems that they also inspire far more disbelief among observers…Including those in the press.
In a report rather innocuously titled “3rd Brett Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick has history of legal disputes,” the Associated Press provides deeply damaging evidence regarding Swetnick’s credibility, including that she has been involved in “at least six legal cases over the past 25 years,” some of which involved what evidence strongly suggests are multiple false claims by Swetnick.
With no corroborating evidence, Swetnick — who is represented by Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti — has accused Brett Kavanaugh of drugging girls and potentially participating in “gang rapes” at high school parties, about ten of which she says she attended. At one of those parties, Swetnick says she herself was gang raped, though she has not accused Kavanaugh of being one of the alleged rapists. For its interview with Swetnick which aired Monday night, NBC News introduced the interview by stating that they were unable to verify any of her claims. She provided NBC the names of four witnesses: one was dead; one said they did not know Swetnick; the two others failed to respond. During the interview, Swetnick walked back her most explosive claims.
Swetnick certainly didn’t do herself any favors by finding herself under the guidance of Michael Avenatti, whose unfortunate nickname of “Creepy Porn Lawyer” belies a great deal about his general demeanor as a litigator.
Instead of falling into the ambulance-chasing routine, Avenatti has regularly involved himself in chasing stories of wild and salacious sexual situations, undoubtedly understanding that these cases will help him find any number of cameras to pontificate in front of with the tabloid-esque mainstream media.
