RUSH: From Breitbart: “Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on Thursday referred Julie Swetnick and her Michael Avenatti to the Justice Department to be criminally investigated for making possible false statements during the confirmation process of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“‘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 said in a statement. ‘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. It stifles our ability to work on legitimate lines of inquiry. It also wastes time and resources for destructive reasons.'”
Now, the porn star lawyer, Avenatti, who was at one time… I’m not kidding. At one time, some in the media, including on our side were thinking this guy was well-positioned to be the Democrat presidential front-runner nominee in 2020. Avenatti. He’s got the IRS going after him now. He’s apparently behind in tax payments almost $5 million. Anyway, issued a statement. “It is ironic that Senator Grassley now is interested in investigations.
“He didn’t care when it came to putting a man on the SCOTUS for life. We welcome the investigation as now we can finally get to the bottom of Judge Kavanaugh’s lies and conduct. Let the truth be known.” Michael Avenatti. So Grassley has referred Avenatti and his client, Julie Swetnick, to the DOJ for criminal investigation. And the creepy porn star lawyer says: “Right on. Right on. Bring it on.”
