Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, announced Sunday that he is representing a client with “credible information” regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his former classmate, Mark Judge.

“I represent a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge,” Avenatti said on Twitter. “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“The nomination must be withdrawn,” he added.

The lawyer’s remarks arrive as Kavanaugh continues to face controversy surrounding sexual assault allegations brought by Christine Blasey Ford.

Ford told The Washington Post last Sunday that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her and attempted to remove her clothes while they were at a high school party in the 1980s. She also alleged that Judge was present in the room during the alleged incident.

Kavanaugh and Judge have denied the allegations. 


Avenatti’s tweets also arrived shortly before an explosive report was published in The New Yorker on Sunday night stating that Senate Democrats are currently looking into a new allegation of sexual misconduct regarding Kavanaugh dating back to his time as a freshman at Yale University in the 1980s.

According to the report, at least two Democratic offices are investigating allegations brought by a woman identified as Deborah Ramirez, who is alleging Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a gathering at Yale. 

Kavanaugh has already denied those claims as well. 

Avenatti confirmed shortly after the report that the client he was referring to is not Ramirez.
