Publicity hound Michael Avenatti issued a challenge to Brett Kavanaugh today: if the honorable judge is so convinced the sexual misconduct allegations against him are false, he should sue. 

Law & Crime reports:
 

“If Brett Kavanaugh & his supporters are so convinced that all of the scores of women (including my client) are lying … then he should sue us all-TODAY,” Avenatti said in a tweet.

   

Swetnick claimed in a sworn written statement that when Kavanaugh was in high school, he spiked the punch at parties in order to help lure girls into rooms where they would be gang-raped by boys taking their turns having sex with them without consent. She claimed that she herself was a victim of such an assault at a party where Kavanaugh was present, and saw him among a group of boys at another party, implying that they were going to rape someone else. Swetnick later clarified her story in an interview with NBC News, stating that when she first saw Kavanaugh in a crowd of boys outside a room at a party, she didn’t think anything of it. It was only after she was raped, she said, that she assumed that similar attacks had taken place.

Kavanaugh vehemently denied all allegations of sexual assault and misconduct that were brought against him by Swetnick and others. Avenatti is now daring him to sue his accusers on the theory that
alleged false statements that he committed crimes would be a clear case of defamation.


The FBI's investigation did not address Swetnick's unsubstantiated and ever-changing claims.
