Avenatti-Supported Kavanaugh Accuser Julie Swetnick Has Restraining Order Filed Against Her

Imagine it: Michael Avenatti, the creepy porn lawyer, has his 2020 presidential aspirations felled by Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.

That appears to be what’s happening in real time, as Avenatti has tried to leverage a new Kavanaugh accuser to derail Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee.

Yesterday, on the eve before Christine Blasey Ford, the first Kavanaugh accuser is set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Avenatti dropped some pretty startling revelations: His client, Julie Swetnick, is alleging some pretty nasty things about Kavanaugh. Because The Political Insider is a family publication, and since there’s only so much bowdlerization one person can do without losing the meaning of a story, we’ll post Avenatti’s claim in full. Beware: very adult language.

From the get-go, Swetnick’s accusation is full of so many holes, it would make Swiss cheese green and moldy with envy. (RELATED: Avenatti’s Kavanaugh Accuser Comes Forward With Story Just As Unbelievable As The Rest.) The things she accuses Kavanaugh of don’t stand up to basic scrutiny. It’s one thing to say Kavanaugh made a drunken pass at you in high school. It’s another to say he attended drug-fueled sex parties (apologies again on icky language). The fact that the FBI investigated Kavanaugh’s background six times and found no evidence of Swetnick’s claims shows how specious they really are.

But now we’re getting more evidence that Swetnick isn’t exactly an upstanding exemplar of civic duty. In fact, she’s about as reputable as Avenatti’s normal clients.

Politico reports:

Julie Swetnick, the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and a friend of attending house parties where women — including herself — were sexually assaulted, had a restraining order filed against her years later in Miami by her former boyfriend.


According to Vinneccy, Swetnick threatened him after they broke up and even after he got married to his current wife and had a child.

“Right after I broke up with her, she was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time,” Vinneccy said in a telephone interview with POLITICO. “I know a lot about her.”

“She’s not credible at all,” he said. “Not at all.”

Well, isn’t that interesting! Avenatti’s client has a salacious past. Does that mean she’s lying? No, but this entire debacle hasn’t been about truth. It’s more about perception. We’ll never know if Kavanaugh did any of the things he’s accused of doing. But Democrats are counting on these accusers to be believed without any substantial evidence.

If Avenatti put his chips in with Swetnick and it’s proven she’s a fraud, his political career is finished. By the looks of it, I don’t think Avenatti will be making any more trips to Iowa or New Hampshire.
