The porn star lawyer, Avenatti is surely feeling the sting of dismissal after Sen. Grassley’s Chief Counsel, Mike David, metaphorically ‘towel slapped’ him away in a searing email. Scott Jenning’s was so kind to share that email on Twitter for the world to see.
“Stop playing games,” Avenatti wrote in an email to Davis. “If you are the Chief Counsel, then you need to do your job. Please respond to our requests.”
Davis responded by dismissing the allegations made by Avenatti’s client, Julie Swetnick, who has been increasingly discredited since coming forward and accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of being involved in a gang-rape ring while he was in high school, The Daily Wire reported.
“We have already reviewed your client’s allegations,” Davis wrote back. “We focus on credible allegations. Please stop emailing me.”
BOOM! Avenatti must not have realized he’s a small fish in a big pond on this stage and that’s not likely the response he was expecting to get. His client, and the last to accuse Kavanaugh of wrongdoing, Julie Swetnick was recently exposed for fraud, lying and several discrediting factors.
Swetnick had taken a medical leave of absence while simultaneously collecting unemployment benefits in Washington, D.C. The company added that she threatened legal action against the company over her unsubstantiated claims of workplace harassment.
This is only the latest accusation that has been made public about Swetnick that raises serious concerns about her credibility as a witness against Kavanaugh.
The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Swetnick sued New York Life Insurance Co. over a sexual misconduct claim using a law firm run by Debra Katz, the lawyer who is representing Christine Blasey Ford, one of Kavanaugh’s other accusers.
Politico also reported last week that Swetnick, who has had her fair share of problems with the IRS, had a restraining order filed against her by her ex-boyfriend, Richard Vinneccy, who said, “She’s not credible at all. Not at all.”
Couple that with Avenatti’s clientele list and own incredibility – yeah, it’s easy to see why Davis shewed him away.
