The Senate Judiciary Committee contacted Michael Avenatti after the lawyer claimed to represent a client who has damaging information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
On Sunday, the attorney — who represents porn star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump — claimed he represents a woman “with credible information” regarding Kavanaugh and friend Mark Judge. Mike Davis, the chief counsel for nominations for the Senate Judiciary Committee, emailed him requesting the information, according to a message Avenatti publicly shared.
Avenatti responded that he and his client would provide “additional evidence” related to explosive allegations of misconduct “in the coming days.” It is unclear what evidence the lawyer has. He told Politico that he represents “multiple individuals that have knowledge” of misconduct.
The Daily Mail reports:
Avenatti late Sunday demanded Kavanaugh be asked about a yearbook entry that says: ‘FFFFFFFourth of July’ – and Avenatti, who says he now represents a client with a sensational charge against Kavanaugh, believes he has cracked the teen code.
Describing the yearbook entry, Avenatti wrote: “We believe that this stands for: Find them, French them, Feel them, Finger them, F*ck them, Forget them.” The high-profile attorney also asked that the high court nominee be asked about the term ‘Devil’s Triangle,’ a term that also shows up in the yearbook entry.
My e-mail of this morning directed to Mr. Davis, Chief Counsel for Nominations for the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. The American people deserve to know the truth and evidence regarding the allegations. There must be no effort made to avoid it. pic.twitter.com/8pcdW0PqQ1
