New Report Says Democrats are ‘Increasingly Anxious’ About Avenatti’s Role in Kavanaugh Accusations. Here’s Why.

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.

“Multiple Democratic congressional aides told Business Insider they worried that while they wanted to fully investigate Swetnick’s claims, they viewed the connection to Avenatti as an unnecessary distraction that only gave more ammunition to Republicans looking to discredit his client,” Business Insider reports.

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.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
