The Senate Judiciary Committee has reached out to attorney Michael Avenatti after he claimed to represent a woman with information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual misconduct, CNBC reports.
Avenatti, who also represents porn star Stormy Daniels in her legal case against President Donald Trump, claimed on Sunday that he represents a woman “with credible information” about Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge.
According to CNBC, Mike Davis, the chief counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has requested the information from Avenatti.
Avenatti replied that he and the woman would provide “additional evidence” in “the coming days.”
My e-mail of moments ago with Mike Davis, Chief Counsel for Nominations for the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary. We demand that this process be thorough, open, and fair, which is what the American public deserves. It must not be rushed and evidence/witnesses must not be hidden.— Michael Avenatti
Avenatti later told Politico that his client has “significant evidence” that Kavanaugh and Judge “would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs.”
The attorney said he represents “a group of individuals who can corroborate allegations involving Kavanaugh and his longtime friend in the 1980s.”
The news came as a second woman accused Kavanaugh of misconduct, this time in college where she says he exposed his penis to her.
Kavanaugh was first accused of sexual assault by Professor Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed that he and the Judge got her in a room and turned up the music in a room at a party so no one could hear her. She says that Kavanaugh covered her mouth to cover her screams as he attempted to rape her but she was able to get away.
Ford has reportedly agreed to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Avenatti said that his client is also willing to testify.
