Grassley Sends Criminal Referral Over Avenatti’s Kavanaugh Accusations

Published

on

The Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman has requested an investigation into creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick over potential “conspiracy to provide false statements to Congress.”

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote a letter to Attorney General Jefferson B. Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray claiming that Swetnick’s allegations were made at a “suspicious time,” and asked them to investigate whether Avenatti and his client obstructed the investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct levied against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing.

“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.

Avenatti, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels, represented Swetnick, who accused Kavanaugh of “gang rapes” at high school parties in the 1980s.

“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,” Grassley continued.

Avenatti fired back “within minutes” according to Fox News. 

“This is clearly political,” he said. “And fortunately for us, Senator Grassley isn’t too smart — or I should say bright. This was a major mistake on his part. He just cracked open the door and I’m going to drive a Mack Truck through it.”

Avenatti blew his lid on Twitter, too.

“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,” he said.

‘You Should Be Backing Bernie Sanders’: Nigel Farage Celebrates Democrat Party Extremism at CPAC

Published

on

Brexit mastermind Nigel Farage talked about the success of populism in his home nation of Britain and abroad while giving a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Md.

“I take it you’re a pro-Brexit crowd!” Farage said to wild applause to start his speech, describing himself as CPAC’s “resident foreign speaker.”

Farage called deposed former Tory Prime Minister Theresa May the worst Prime Minister in the history of the United Kingdom to start his speech and talked about the formation of his new political entity.

“We ironically became the largest delegation in the European Parliament of any European country,” Farage said of his Brexit party, also crediting his party’s success with the resignation of May.

“Boris has become the leader, and Boris to date has picked up every word and every phrase that I have stood and fought for for nearly 30 years. It’s really great news, and it means at long last we have finally left the European Union!” Farage exclaimed.

He boasted about being the most “notorious” MEP in the history of European parliament, and he was happy to be finished in dealing with the European Union.

“I don’t just want the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. I want Europe to leave the European Union,” he said.

Farage credited former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn with helping to strengthen the Tory coalition united around the Brexit. He believes that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) can do the same thing to the Republican Party in the U.S.

“You should be backing Bernie Sanders. You should be campaigning for Bernie Sanders. You should be donating money to Bernie Sanders. You should be making sure that Bernie Sanders gets that nomination. You need a Democrat Party as far left-wing, as anti-American as they possibly can be,” he explained.

“Not only will you get four more years of this great President Trump, but I think with Bernie, you won’t just get Trump. With Bernie, I think you can re-take the House too!” he added.

Farage talked up President Trump, who he described as his “friend,” as leading the fight to end globalism.

“You are part of a big moment in history, and with four more years of Donald Trump, we will complete the job,” Farage said to conclude his speech, which ended the second day of the CPAC event. It will conclude after Saturday when Trump addresses the event.
