New information shows that NBC News had information that would have discredited Julie Swetnick’s claims that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh participated in gang rapes.
Sources say three weeks ago, attorney Michael Avenatti set the stage for the rumors by sending an anonymous woman to speak with NBC. NBC then allegedly put their own twist on the woman’s story and published a complete fabrication of the truth.
Nearly three weeks after Kavanaugh was confirmed, NBC published a story with a quoted text that had been sent to NBC by the woman on October 4, before Kavanaugh had been confirmed.
The text states, “It is incorrect that I saw Brett spike the punch. I didn’t see anyone spike the punch…I was very clear with Michael Avenatti from day one. I would not ever allow anyone to be abusive in my presence. Male or female.”
NBC is placing the blame on Avenatti. However, the blistering facts seemingly show that NBC colluded with Avenatti in an attempt to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation with false facts.
According to NBC, the woman changed her mind several times and eventually wrote to the network.
She wrote, “I will definitely talk to [NBC] again and no longer Avenatti. I do not like that he twisted my words.”
Avenatti has been described as an “ambulance chaser.” Avenatti has also been thrown out of his law office and reportedly owes the firm more than $5 million.
This is not the first time NBC has fabricated a news story for ratings.
No word if a lawsuit will be filed against NBC.
Numersous critics have tweeted about the ordeal.
There are a bunch of new facts in here that apparently date back to Oct. 3 and 4. Why did NBC News withhold that information, which reflects poorly on Avenatti, for three weeks? It would’ve been a bombshell had it been reported at the time. https://t.co/8CSDBSqYVP
