Avenatti: We still haven’t heard from the FBI
Attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents Julie Swetnick, on Wednesday said that he and his client have yet to hear from the FBI regarding Swetnick's sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The attorney, who is also representing adult-film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuits against President Trump, on Twitter, blasted the president's FBI investigation into allegations made against Kavanaugh as "a scam."
"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.
Trump last week asked the FBI to look into the accusations, calling for a "comprehensive" but quick investigation, after Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) requested the investigation to occur before the Senate has a floor vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation.
