    Michael Avenatti: I Represent a Woman With ‘Credible Information’ on Kavanaugh

    Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, claims he’s representing another woman with “credible evidence” against Brett Kavanaugh. Tweeting late Sunday, the 2020 presidential hopeful said he and his client will “be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee” and that Kavanaugh’s “nomination must be withdrawn.” He added that his client is not Deborah Ramirez, the woman featured in a New Yorker article published Sunday night with a second allegation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh. Avenatti said he’s aware of “significant evidence” that Kavanaugh and his friends targeted women with alcohol and drugs in the 1980s in order to allow “a train” of men to take advantage of them sexually. A Senate Judiciary Committee staffer told the AP late Sunday that the panel is looking into the Ramirez claims as well as the Avenatti report.
