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.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is Hospitalized Yet Again with a Fever and Chills

Ginsburg has been frequently hospitalized in recent years.

Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized yet again after suffering from a fever and the chills.

Ginsburg, 87, is currently holed up in The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Doctors performed a procedure to clean her bile duct stent, and she is expected to stay hospitalized at the facility for a few days.

“The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment,” SCOTUS spokesperson Kathleen Arberg said in a statement.

Big League Politics has reported on Ginsburg’s recent run-ins with cancer, which caused her to miss significant time on the bench just last year:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is sick yet again. She missed legal arguments today due to supposed “stomach bug” that rendered her ill.

Chief Justice John Roberts made the announcement that RBG was “indisposed due to illness.” Her illness forced her to miss courtroom arguments for two cases.

RBG’s health has taken a turn for the worse over the past year, as she has undergone two cancer scares and suffered broken ribs from a fall. She is the oldest judge on the SCOTUS right now at the age of 86, and liberals fear that her waning condition will allow President Donald Trump to replace her with a strong conservative.

RBG has had four separate bouts with cancer, with the most recent coming over the summer when she was treated with radiation over a three-week period.

Ginsburg is steadfastly hanging onto her SCOTUS seat, doggedly refusing to step down despite her many health problems. She has been a massive critic of President Donald Trump since before he was elected to office.

“He is a faker,” Ginsburg said of Trump in 2016. “He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. … How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that.”

“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she added.

Now that Ginsburg has to live through the reality of a Trump presidency, she desperately wants to hang on to her SCOTUS seat so he will not appoint her successor. With her mounting health concerns, she may not have a choice but to allow President Trump to choose her replacement in the very near future.
