Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is asking for another criminal investigation into attorney Michael Avenatti amid reports his accuser recanted her allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh even before submitting her sworn testimony. 

Fox News reports:

The referral follows the one issued Thursday -- alleging that Avenatti and client Julie Swetnick engaged in a “conspiracy” to provide false statements to Congress about Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual misconduct -- after the accuser backtracked on some allegations.

The Friday referral concerns the second sworn declaration Avenatti submitted to the committee that supposedly backed up Swetnick’s allegations.

Grassley cited an NBC News report revealing – nearly three weeks after Kavanaugh's confirmation – that a second, unidentified accuser walked back on her allegations even before the lawyer could post her statement on social media, saying the lawyer “twisted” her words.

The woman, who remains unidentified, said in a sworn statement posted by Avenatti that she saw Kavanaugh “spike” the punch at the parties.

However, in an interview with NBC News – prior to the release of the statement – she recanted, saying said she never saw Kavanaugh acting inappropriately towards women.
