Trump just attacked Avenatti in furious tweet about his client’s bombshell Kavanaugh allegations

President Trump took to Twitter with surprising speed and fired off a furious response to the latest allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, which were revealed to the public by one of Trump’s biggest headaches — hotshot lawyer Michael Avenatti.


Michael Avenatti represents Stormy Daniels, the award-winning porn star and director who Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen paid $130,000 to right before the election in order to buy her silence about the extramarital affair Trump had with her.

His deft maneuvering of a tumultuous legal battle with Trump’s legal team eventually led to the discovery of illegal campaign finance violations by Cohen that implicate Trump, a guilty plea and a three to five year prison sentence for Cohen, a release of Stormy from her non-disclosure agreement and public humiliation for the President. 

Ironically, Trump admitted that the hush money was paid, which means that Trump is openly lying about Avenatti making “false accusations” in his tweet. But no surprise there.

Now Avenatti is back again as the champion of a different woman against a different sexually deranged predator (allegedly), Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

He released a sworn testimony this morning from former Homeland Security staffer Julie Swetnick which alleges that she witnessed Kavanaugh and his prep school buddies targeted vulnerable or shy girls, covertly forced women to drink more alcohol than they thought they were consuming, drugged women with pills and then gang-raped them once they were incapacitated.

Trump’s furious tweet is a sure sign of his desperation and a panicked attempt at too-little-too-late damage control for a nomination that was already taking on water. Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman reports that the White House was utterly blindsided by these allegations and could mean the pulling of his nomination.

If Avenatti succeeds in sinking Kavanaugh, we owe him a great debt for keeping this right-wing psychopath off the Supreme Court — and his 2020 presidential ambitions just got much more realistic.
