Michael Avenatti says he’s representing woman with ‘credible information’ about Brett Kavanaugh

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Stormy Daniels, says he is representing a woman with ‘credible information’ about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. 

‘I represent a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge,’ the lawyer tweeted on Sunday.

‘We will be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee and will likewise be demanding that Judge and others be subpoenaed to testify.

‘The nomination must be withdrawn.’

His announcement came just hours before the New Yorker published a second sexual misconduct allegation against Kavanaugh by Deborah Ramirez.

She claims that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her and ‘made her touch his penis without consent’ at a Yale dorm party 35 years ago. Avenatti said Ramirez is not his client.

Kavanaugh strongly denies Ramirez’s claims. He released a statement on Sunday night saying:  ‘This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. 

‘I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name–and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building–against these last-minute allegations.’

The White House also backed their candidate in a statement on Sunday that read:  ‘This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats designed to tear down a good man. 

‘This claim is denied by all who were said to be present and is wholly inconsistent with what many women and men who knew Judge Kavanaugh at the time in college say. The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh.’

Judge is the man who went to high school with Kavanaugh.

He is alleged to have witnessed Kavanaugh sexually assault Christine Blasey Ford, a professor from California.

Ford’s allegations are threatening to derail Kavanaugh’s nomination to the highest court in the land.
