Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has referred attorney Michael Avenatti and his client, Julie Swetnick, to the Justice Department and FBI for investigation into their claims about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“I am writing to refer Mr. Michael Avenatti and Ms. Julie Swetnick for investigation,” Grassley, an Iowa Republican, wrote in a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Grassley - Avenatti - Swetnick - Conspiracy - Statements

Grassley alleges that Avenatti and Swetnick engaged in a “potential conspiracy to provide materially false statements to Congress and obstruct a congressional committee investigation.”

Avenatti, a potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, came forward as the attorney for Swetnick just days before Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary panel about allegations from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychologist who claimed that Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her when they were in high school in 1982.

Declaration - Avenatti - Sept - Swetnick - Kavanaugh

In a written declaration released by Avenatti on Sept. 26, Swetnick claimed that in the early 1980s, when Kavanaugh was in high school, she witnessed him drugging alcoholic beverages at house parties in order to take advantage of girls.

Swetnick, who is more than two years older than Kavanaugh, also claimed that she saw Kavanaugh at parties where girls were gang raped. Swetnick herself claimed that she was gang raped at one party, though she has said she does not know if Kavanaugh was aware of the attack.
