    You might remember back in May 2018 when sketchy porn lawyer Michael Avenetti was releasing U.S. Treasury notifications on Michael Cohen received from an unknown source within the Treasury Department. You might also remember when New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow wrote a sympathetic article after talking to the leaking treasury official. As a result the Treasury Inspector General began an investigation. John C. Fry, 54, was an intelligence analyst with the IRS’s law enforcement arm in San Francisco. According to the North California U.S. Attorney’s Office (full pdf below) after searching for IRS activity reports related to Michael Cohen, Mr. Fry...
  • Graham: If Republicans bail on Kavanaugh "we deserve our fate"

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham just issued a statement on the latest Kavanaugh allegations, calling them "outrageous" and warning his fellow Republicans that if they bail on their Supreme Court nominee "we deserve our fate." Here's the full statement: “Judge Kavanaugh has just emphatically denied the recent allegation being levied by Michael Avenatti and his client. He says he does not know the woman in question and emphatically denies the accusations. I would remind everyone that dozens of women who knew Judge Kavanaugh during the time period in question completely vouch for his good character.

    Accuser Julie Swetnick owed over $100,000 in unpaid taxes in 2015-2017. She need(ed) some cash desperately! A spokesman for New York Life confirmed that Ms. Swetnick worked there as an agent for less than two years, from 2006 to 2008. She didn’t list her work there on a résumé posted online. A spokeswoman for Ms. Katz declined to comment. Records show Ms. Swetnick also had recent run-ins with tax authorities. In 2015, Maryland’s comptroller filed a lien against her in Anne Arundel County, a suburb of Baltimore and Washington, for more than $30,000 in unpaid taxes. The state demanded about...
  • Seven Questions About the Avenatti/Swetnick Story

    National Review ^ | September 26, 2018 | Charles C. W. Cooke
    Some questions raised by the charges brought by Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick: 1. Given the seriousness of these allegations, why did Michael Avenatti and Julie Swetnick decline to go directly to the police? 2. Likewise, why did Avenatti and Swetnick bypass the press? Did anyone in the press look into this story? What did they find? The New York Times confirms that “none of Ms. Swetnick’s claims could be independently corroborated by The New York Times, and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, declined to make her available for an interview.” Why? 3. Where are the witnesses? The charge...

    Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, was accused of domestic violence by a former boyfriend in 2001, according to Florida court records. Swetnick’s former boyfriend, Richard Vinneccy, told Politico they dated for four years before breaking up, at which point Swetnick threatened violence against him and his family. The restraining order, filed in Miami-Dade, Fla. on March 1, 2001, was dismissed thirteen days later. “Right after I broke up with her, she was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time,” Vinneccy said. “I know...

    Congratulations, New York Times! You have gone full Avenatti in your desperation to derail the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Despite the fact that even Senate Democrats remain quite wary of embracing Michael Avenatti's wild charges against Kavanaugh based on bizarre extrapolations of seemingly innocent comments in his high school yearbook, the New York Times is now following his lead in debased speculation. First let us look in the September 25 Vox at how Avenatti interprets Kavanaugh's yearbook to make his charges based on basically nothing which seemed to inspire the Times in a very similar effort:

    A group that advocates against sexism on Tuesday night projected messages condemning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh onto the courthouse where he currently serves as a judge. The group, UltraViolet, projected messages that read "Kavanaugh is a sexual predator and well documented liar" onto the building where the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit resides. Other messages projected included "He lied every time he testified," and "Kavanaugh must withdraw." The PR firm working for the group said in an email that the initial plan was to project the messages on the Supreme Court building. But after...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | September 24, 2018
    ... There is a phrase for what is happening here: character assassination. Judge Kavanaugh’s good name is being smeared with sexual allegations on the eve of a Supreme Court confirmation vote in a campaign abetted if not orchestrated by Democrats. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, withheld Ms. Ford’s letter from her colleagues for six weeks until she sprung it at the last minute. She has since been demanding a fair and public hearing for Ms. Ford. But on Sunday she leapt on Ms. Ramirez’s claim to demand an “immediate postponement” in the hearing now scheduled for...

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his wife Ashley were interviewed last night by FOX News host Martha MacCallum. Judge Kavanaugh admitted to MacCallum he was a virgin in high school and several years after high school. Leftist hero Michael Avenatti pounced on Judge Kavanaugh’s comments. Michael Avenatti: Kavanaugh saying he was a virgin in HS “shows he’s lying.” “Does that mean he performed oral sex or had oral sex performed on him? … Does he want America to believe that the only thing that he did until well into his college years was effectively kiss or French kiss?”

    Dr. Christine Blasey Ford‘s legal team has sent a letter (which can be seen below via NBC’s Frank Thorp) to the Senate Judiciary Committee amid continuous negotiations ahead of Thursday’s scheduled hearing. In the letter addressed to Sen. Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Ford’s legal team cited Sen. Majority Leader’s Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) speech on the Senate floor on Monday afternoon as “flatly inconsistent” to Grassley’s promise of a “fair and credible process.” “In our view, the hiring of an unnamed ‘experienced sex crimes prosecutor’ as Mr. Davis described in his email, is contrary to the Majority’s repeated emphasis on...

    On Sunday evening, just as The New Yorker revealed the identity of a second woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, attorney Michael Avenatti announced that he, too, had “credible information” about Kavanaugh and his high school friend, Mark Judge. The media-savvy lawyer told The Daily Beast on Monday that his client would be coming forward “in the next 48 hours” with details and accusations that mirrored those already leveled and could, in his estimation, torpedo Kavanaugh’s confirmation—all of which would seem helpful for Democrats as they make the case that Kavanaugh is morally unfit to sit...

    A lawyer for Christina Blasey Ford—the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault—raised concerns on Monday about the setup for a public hearing where Ford will testify later this week. Michael R. Bromwich, a lawyer for Ford, said in a letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, that the plan for Thursday's public hearing "does not appear designed to provide Dr. Blasey Ford with fair and respectful treatment." The letter casts some doubt on the deal Ford's team made with Senate Judiciary leaders to appear at a hearing on Thursday. Bromwich in...

    Renate Schroeder Dolphin, a woman who knew Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during his teenage years, is denouncing a "horrible" and "simply untrue" insinuation after The New York Times found her referenced several times by name in his high school yearbook. The newspaper reported on Monday that the woman’s name appeared in a photo in Georgetown Preparatory School’s 1983 yearbook that featured Kavanaugh, who has been accused of committing sexual assault at a party when he was in high school, and four other men along with the caption “Renate Alumni.” According to the newspaper, the phrase was a reference to...

    **SNIP** While most Democrats are taking Ramirez’s allegation seriously — if not to the extent they're publicly backed Ford — they’re stopping far short of giving the same treatment to a third, unknown woman tied to the nominee and represented by celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti. Avenatti has tweeted that his client is a “woman with credible information” concerning “the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs” by Kavanaugh and his longtime friend Mark Judge, whom Ford has identified as the third person in the room during her alleged assault. But Democratic senators are treading lightly on the claims from Avenatti, who also...
  • Ronan Farrow’s Kavanaugh story causes media meltdown

    New Yorker writers Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer pushed back Monday against the New York Times’ coverage of the latest sexual-misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. ** The paper said it interviewed “several dozen people” in a vain attempt to find someone with “firsthand knowledge” to corroborate Ramirez’s allegations. The Times also said Ramirez contacted former classmates to see if they remembered the alleged incident — and told some she wasn’t sure it was Kavanaugh who exposed himself. But in a Twitter post Monday, Farrow said it was “not accurate” for a Washington Post columnist to have tweeted...
