Chuck Grassley Tells AG and FBI to Take A Look at Michael Avenatti

Avenatti may finally have been caught barking up the wrong tree.

Michael Avenatti

For many Americans, the name Michael Avenatti conjures up the cringeworthy television persona of a truly unique character of this, the Trump Era.

Avenatti has earned his reputation as a fame-seeking civil servant through his glut of television appearances and his willingness, nay, his enthusiasm for interjecting himself into the largest stories of the week.  When the cable news networks stopped scheduling Avenatti for appearances as the public became disinterested in the Stormy Daniels saga, the opportunistic attorney was suddenly thrust back into the spotlight by his involvement with Julie Swetnick.

Swetnick, as some may recall, made disturbing and unverifiable allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in the days leading up to his confirmation to the high court.

Now, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is calling Avenatti to the carpet over the “suspicious” timing of the allegations, and he’s involving Jeff Sessions as well as the FBI.

Grassley penned a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray Thursday, claiming Swetnick and Avenatti’s allegations were leveled at a “suspicious” time.

“When a well-meaning citizen comes forward with information relevant to the committee’s work, I take it seriously. It takes courage to come forward, especially with allegations of sexual misconduct or personal trauma. I’m grateful for those who find that courage,” Grassley wrote.

“But in the heat of partisan moments, some do try to knowingly mislead the committee. That’s unfair to my colleagues, the nominees, and others providing information who are seeking the truth,” Grassley continued. “It stifles our ability to work on legitimate lines of inquiry. It also wastes time and resources for destructive reasons.”

Never a man to waste attention, Avenatti was ready with a retort.

“This is clearly political,” he told Fox News. “And fortunately for us, Senator Grassley isn’t too smart — or I should say bright. This was a major mistake on his part. He just cracked open the door and I’m going to drive a Mack Truck through it.”

Avenatti added that his client Swetnick “looks forward to comparing her credibility to that of Judge Kavanaugh’s.”

No matter the outcome of Grassley’s investigation, there is little doubt that it will lead to more fame for Michael Avenatti; a man whose political aspirations will likely be on full display in the near future.

Once again, “Project Veritas” continues to prove that it is one of the only reliable investigative arms in the media world. They expose the truth. Now that liberals have completely infiltrated Hollywood, big tech, the mainstream media and the education system, it is imperative that “Project Veritas” remains alive and well and free to operate. James O’Keefe’s outlet has, again, exposed CNN for the anti-Trump goons they really are.

Details: Minneapolis City Council Is Attempting to Defund the Police With $8 Million Cut

How ridiculous!

It takes a special kind of (insert own curse word here) to call for defunding police departments. You have to be incredibly politically challenged to think doing so is a good thing. We know, beyond any reasonable doubt, that less police presence equals higher crime rates. Fact. But that’s how the left likes to live: backward. From The Daily Wire: The Minneapolis City Council is trying again to defund the Minneapolis Police Department, after an initial effort to eliminate the city’s existing law enforcement apparatus and replace it with a “community-oriented” solution failed. Minneapolis’ CBS affiliate reports that three members of the Minneapolis City Council, all of whom supported a drastic plan to defund and disband the city’s police department following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, are offering a “follow-up” solution that involves slashing the police budget and drastically cutting the number of MPD officers. CONTINUED: “Minneapolis City Council Member Phillipe Cunningham saw the mass protests following George Floyd’s death in late May as an imperative for something new,” the outlet reported Tuesday. “He and council colleagues Lisa Bender and Steve Fletcher have co-written a budget plan that proposes moving about $8 million out of the police department. For context, the current budget allocated nearly $200 million to MPD.” Bender is the force behind the City Council’s initial effort to defund and disband the police, and famously told interviewers, over the summer, that fears about a rising crime rate were evidence of “privilege.” Liberals need help. If they don’t get it, the entire nation will continue on a downward trajectory.
