CNN’s Interview about Kavanaugh’s Accuser took a turn no one saw coming
CNN allows Michael Avenatti to appear on their air at a moment’s notice.
He could not wait to appear on air to push his latest accusations against Brett Kavanaugh.
But this interview took a crazy turn that no one saw coming.
Avenatti appeared on CNN’s New Day.
He figured he was in for a softball interview.
Avenatti released a declaration from Julie Swetnick claiming she attended ten parties where Brett Kavanaugh helped get girls drunk so they could be gang raped.
But the allegations quickly fell apart.
CNN’s Alyson Camerota pressed Avenatti on the outrageous nature of his allegations.
“The claims your client makes are jaw dropping, and some of them frankly strain credulity. They don’t make sense to me,” Camerota bluntly put it, asking the lawyer to explain to their audience why his client would continue to attend parties where alleged drunken groping and gang raping was going on:
“How is any of this possible? How is it possible that if she saw any of these things she would continue to go to house parties like this?” Camerota asked the obvious question. Avenatti bristled at being actually asked a real question for once.
“Well first of all, my client is 100 percent credible!” he snarled. Avenatti claimed he wanted an FBI investigation into Swetnick’s story, and he had offered the Senate committee to question his client in a committee hearing.
But Camerota pressed Avenatti again to answer her question. “Just to my question, why would she ever go back? Why did she go to ten of those house parties?” she asked.
Americans can see the basic unfairness of the situation.
A publicity hound like Avenatti is using ridiculous allegations against Brett Kavanaugh to boost his profile ahead of the 2020 Presidential campaign.
The allegations he put forth were so wild that the New York Times reported they cannot corroborate them.
