Democrats want to move hear Kavanaugh
Second woman accuses Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in new report; Peter Doocy reports from Capitol Hill.
Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for the adult-film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Trump, who now says he has a customer who will reveal the allegations against the embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is set within 48 hours — a short time before Kavanaugh, testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in the midst of other sexual misconduct allegations.
“Just let me really clear about something,” Avenatti said in an interview with CNN on Monday evening. “You know that I don’t traffic in rumor and bullshit. I state facts, and I have evidence to back it up. I would not make these accusations lightly.”
Earlier Monday, Avenatti said that the unnamed woman knew that Kavanaugh around the time of high school, but at a different school. The woman, according to the lawyer, has multiple security clearances from the U.S. government, including the Ministry of foreign Affairs and the Ministry of justice.
“I’m very confident that the allegations made by my clients,” Avenatti. “As it relates to the woman, whose name is known to the public several security releases were issued, by the Federal government.”
Asked if he was ready to prove that his client said the charges, Avenatti, that “it is our burden to bear. We are here to embrace you, and to be it.”
In a separate interview Monday evening on MSNBC, Avenatti said he thought “it very well may be, a criminal complaint in relation to this behavior.”
Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct decades ago by Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez. He has denied all the claims.
Ford said a friend of Kavanaugh, Mark judge, witnesses of her alleged attack. The judge denied it also.

Avenatti put new demands on Sunday on Twitter. His client, he said, had knowledge of Kavanaugh, judges and others in high school, “targeting women with alcohol and/or drugs, in order to allow a” train ” of men, and then rape you.”
Kavanaugh produced his denials in an exclusive Fox News interview on Monday, in the explanation of the environment where he grew up.
“Yes, it parties, and the minimum age was 18, and Yes, the seniors were legal and had a beer there,” he said. “And, Yes, people had too many Beers on occasion … I think all of us have probably done things we look back on high school and regret or cringe a little. But that is not what we are talking about. We are talking here about an allegation of sexual assault. I still have never bothered to sexually nobody.”
Avenatti was not the purchase of the judge’s statement.
“I think it is just absolutely incredible and I think that Americans are smarter than this,” he said.
