The atmosphere of today’s mainstream media circus has taken another step toward absurdity thanks to a conveniently-timed statement from television pundit and legal professional Michael Avenatti.
I use the term “professional” here loosely, as I’m sure that the self-respecting attorneys of the world would take serious umbrage to being lumped in with the showboating “Creepy Porn Lawyer” who appears on television every single day.
Avenatti, whose 15 minutes of fame have long been up in the case of Stormy Daniels’ publicity stunts, is looking for a new reason to remain in the public eye, and it looks as though he may have found it in a third woman who claims that Brett Kavanaugh was part of a “gang rape” club in high school.
If you think that this sounds bizarre, especially for a man who claims to have been a virgin until well into his college career, you’d be right: It is bizarre. Now, even Brett Kavanaugh is admitting that.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday denied “Twilight Zone” allegations brought by Resistance TV lawyer Michael Avenatti, representing a D.C. resident named Julie Swetnick, of drugging women’s drinks and participating in multiple “gang rapes.”
“This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone,” Kavanaugh said in a statement released by the White House. “I don’t know who this is and this never happened.”
Soon after, President Donald Trump accused Avenatti, who is also the lawyer for porn actress Stormy Daniels, of making “false accusations.”
Brett Kavanaugh, who has been berated nonstop by bizarre allegations in the last few days, was shocked and appalled by these latest claims…which should tell us all something very important about his character; this man in true in his convictions about these incidents.
If he were guilty, of anything at all similar to what these women are alleging, he would be sitting quietly somewhere, waiting to testify under oath with carefully worded statements and the advice of expensive legal counsel. Instead, Kavanaugh is volunteering these statements to the public upon their reveal. He is certainly not heeding the advice that any sane lawyer would give him, and he is doing so in a righteous effort to clear his name.
You can’t fake this sort of fervor easily, and his “Twilight Zone” comment just reiterates this reality.
