According to inside sources, Democrats are becoming “increasingly anxious” over the role that porn star Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti is playing in the promotion of sexual assault allegations against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The Business Insider is reporting that several Democratic congressional aides have told them that lawmakers are scared that Avenatti, who, hilariously, stated he’s interested in a possible 2020 presidential bid, is becoming a “distraction” to their effort to keep Kavanaugh’s nomination from being confirmed. Others have said they are “uneasy” with his involvement in the whole affair.
Sens. Tim Kaine, Jon Tester, and Dianne Feinstein all commented about Avenatti on the record to Business Insider, and the first two made clear they weren’t thrilled about his involvement. None of them were willing to express their confidence in him.
“Personally, I think he’s kind of a distraction,” Kaine told the outlet, stressing that he doesn’t know him personally. Tester admitted that Avenatti “wouldn’t have been my first pick,” and said he hoped that the celebrity lawyer wasn’t doing it for the “showbiz part.”
“Do I think he’s in it for the showbiz part? I hope not,” said Tester. “It’s too serious of a situation.”
When Feinstein was asked by Business Insider whether or not Avenatti was trustworthy, she told them she didn’t know. However, she did say that his involvement is irrelevant, noting that the only thing that matters are the allegations made by the client he represents, Julie Swetnick.
Of course, the main problem there is that Swetnick is even less of a reliable individual than Christine Blasey Ford. Swetnick’s credibility has been annihilated by her ex-boyfriend who came forward almost immediately, noting he had to get a restraining order against her and that she threatened to murder him, his wife, and their unborn child.
Yeah, that kind of puts a damper on whether or not you can take her claims of assault seriously. It seems as if Avenatti and Swetnick were made for each other.
