"We still have yet to hear anything from the FBI despite a new witness coming forward & submitting a declaration last night. We now have multiple witnesses that support the allegations and they are all prepared to be interviewed by the FBI. Trump’s 'investigation' is a scam," Avenatti wrote in a tweet.

Swetnick alleged in sworn testimony last week that Kavanaugh attended a party where she was drugged with "Quaaludes or something similar" and attacked by a series of men in a "gang rape."
Avenatti released that testimony publicly and has called for the FBI to investigate Swetnick's claims.
Swetnick is one of three women, along with Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, who has publicly accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
The FBI is currently looking into accusations made against Kavanaugh as part of a reopened background investigation into the judge.
