Michael Avenatti’s Unbelievable Allegation

The allegations from attorney Michael Avenatti’s client unveiled this morning are stunning. Some might even call them unbelievable.

The accuser contends she attended at least ten house parties over a three-year period, that began when Kavanaugh was 15 or 16 years old.

She contends that similar parties “occurred nearly every weekend during the school year.”

She contends Kavanaugh and his friends engaged in criminal activities including sexual assault “on numerous occasions.” From that description, it sounds like she witnessed sexual assaults and then continued to attend the parties.

She contends Kavanaugh and Mark Judge obtained either alcohol or drugs such as Quaaludes to spike the punch at these parties.

She contends “numerous boys” were involved in multiple acts of sexual assault, and literally lined up outside the room to wait their turn to commit sexual assault.

As far as we know, not a single victim or witness ever called the police.

As far as we know, not a single victim or witness ever told their parents, teachers, or any other responsible adult.

As far as we know, this accuser is the only person who ever attended these parties who has ever come forward making this claim.

Nothing relating to this multi-year conspiracy to commit repeated acts of ritualized sexual assault ever came up in six FBI background checks or White House security-clearance checks.

That is a remarkable sequence of events.
