Our media is so awful. On Friday, it was revealed that NBC News had information which would have quickly cleared Brett Kavanaugh of the sleazy charges of gang rape brought by one of Michael Avenatti’s clients.
The Washington Examiner reports:
NBC sat on evidence exonerating Justice Kavanaugh, discrediting Michael Avenatti and his clients’ accusations
This is bad.
NBC News obtained information as early as Sept. 30 suggesting attorney Michael Avenatti had engaged in a conspiracy to defame Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Yet, for more than three weeks, the network said nothing, even as Kavanaugh’s critics cited Avenatti’s client, Julie Swetnick, as proof of the judge’s supposed unworthiness to serve on the Supreme Court.
On Thursday, NBC published a report titled, “ New questions raised about Avenatti claims regarding Kavanaugh.” The article ticks through several already-identified discrepancies in Swetnick’s Sept. 26 affidavit. More importantly, the report includes new details regarding additional inconsistencies in a signed declaration from a woman whom Avenatti presented to media as a corroborating witness…
Now, we learn Avenatti’s supposedly corroborating witness told NBC on Oct. 3 that she only “skimmed” the declaration that he had provided to media. She then told NBC in a text message dated Oct. 4 that she never saw Kavanaugh “spike the punch. I didn’t see anyone spike the punch … I was very clear with Michael Avenatti from day one.”
Thank goodness Republicans didn’t back down and got Kavanaugh confirmed.
