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.

Mueller Drops A Nuke After BuzzFeed Says Trump Told Cohen to Lie to Congress

Thank you…Robert Mueller?!?

Liberal outlet BuzzFeed put out an original report claiming Donald Trump directed former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

Social media exploded because if the story is true the president would be in big trouble.

There’s no denying that.

Here’s a little taste of the report, per BuzzFeed:

President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter.

Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen.

Trump’s response:

The thing is, though, even Special Counsel Robert Mueller is saying BuzzFeed‘s story is bogus!

Here’s the deal…

In case you forgot, Mueller and his team are doing everything possible to find a connection between Trump and Russia.

They aren’t exactly fond of 45.

Therefore, Mueller smacking down the report from BuzzFeed should speak volumes to lefties.

More:

BuzzFeed is standing by their report:

WATCH:

Businessman Donald Trump was thinking about the idea of a Trump Tower in Russia in 2015, 2016-ish.

Naturally, some paired this deal (that was never made) to Trump working with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton.

Conservative rock star Mark Levin, lawyer and radio host, explains the legal consequences President Trump could be facing.

Hint: sorry liberals.

Listen:

People keep saying, ‘What are the legal implications for Trump?’ There are none. Zero. There’s no legal implication; there’s no legal jeopardy, period. Moreover, in all this so-called reporting and analysis by these phony experts, where did President Trump collude, coordinate, or conspire with the Russians during the election, to fix the result of the election? Where is this evidence? And since there’s not a scintilla of evidence, this should underscore the point that this entire investigation is bogus.

Shouldn’t [the media] be cheering over the fact that so far, all the leaks show that Trump did nothing? Shouldn’t they be celebrating that, that in our republic, the president that we chose is guilty of nothing? That he didn’t collaborate, he didn’t coordinate, he didn’t conspire with the Russians? But they’re not. They keep bringing in these phony experts, who are utterly predictable. ‘You know, uh, if I were Don Jr., I’d be worried about now’ — the country should be worried about now, about what’s taking place. The country should be worried.”

[…]

How many more damn times do I have to explain that it is the position of the United States Department of Justice that you cannot indict a sitting president? He’s not in any kind of legal jeopardy.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson explains how the FBI opened an investigation in 2017 to learn if President Trump was “secretly a Russian agent.”

You couldn’t make this up.

REPORT: Twitter Colluding with Ocasio-Cortez to Ensure Message Is More Effective

I’m sure @Jack will be QUICK to assist Republicans, too!

After years of searching, there is still absolutely zero evidence the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

That’s not exactly a surprise to Trump supporters.

Collusion, however, seems to take place on the other side of the political aisle on a relatively frequent basis.

The latest example?

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Twitter.

Twitter is colluding with Democrats in Congress to ensure they’re using the social media platform as effectively as possible.

From USA Today:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dances outside her office, solicits Instant Pot recipes and gets into fights on Twitter. Soon you may see other Democrats taking a page from her social media playbook.

The House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee is hosting a session Thursday morning with Ocasio-Cortez of New York (@AOC – 2.42 million followers) and Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut (@jahimes – 76,500 followers) “on the most effective ways to engage constituents on Twitter and the importance of digital storytelling.” …

The decision to invite Ocasio-Cortez, a House freshman, to share her expertise signals the Democratic party’s attempt to bring in fresh voices – even when those voices don’t always agree with leadership.

Well, isn’t that swell?

People certainly need to learn more about socialist policies from a 29-year-old genius, huh??

Here’s a couple tweets from Dems who are “learning” AOC’s way…

Republican Congressman Steve Scalise (LA) was nearly murdered by deranged left-wing activist James Hodgkinson in June 2017.

If a Democrat representative had been shot in the Trump era, we’d be talking about it to this day.

Scalise sent a tweet calling out Ocasio-Cortez for wanting to raise taxes to 70%.

See it:

Alexandria responded.

Scalise sent another tweet that combined some responses from AOC’s “radical” supporters:

Her supporters showed their true colors…

https://twitter.com/randygdub/status/1081764089376849920?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1081764089376849920&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fheres-how-scummy-ocasio-cortez-supporters-are%2F

There’s a lot Ocasio-Cortez still has to learn, especially about America.

Check out this message she sent, implying that she, herself, is an “American Revolutionary.”

The world the British colonists inherited was ruled by kings, hereditary aristocrats, and wealthy gentlemen. But in the year 1776, Americans decided to change that world. They would do without a king or aristocrats. They would create a new government based solely on “the people.”

But who would really count as “the people,” and how would it all work? Should wealthy and educated gentlemen still dominate the government? Should a new, representative form of government truly represent the interests and views of common men and women? How should those people participate to make their voices heard?

Reactions:

When people look back 50 years from now are they going to say George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Barack Obama, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez were all crucial to America’s development over the centuries?

No.

Just two of those people will be credited, the other two forgotten.

Very few events in history should be compared to the Holocaust, right?

From Daily Caller:

New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday compared members of the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

Heck, these law-breaking migrants were caught on camera throwing rocks at cops.

https://twitter.com/WendyFry_/status/1066791682899959808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1066791682899959808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailycaller.com%2F2018%2F11%2F25%2Falexandria-ocasio-cortez-migrant-holocaust%2F

Ocasio-Cortez claims “Republican commentators” are “stalking” her and “doctoring” her live streams.

Yes, Alexandria is delusional.

The only reason she’s being talked about so much is because she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

Check out this hilarious montage of Ocasio-Cortez proving she doesn’t know much:

Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.

Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.

See her tweet:
