NBC News Deliberately Sat on Information That Would Have Helped Clear Kavanaugh of Gang Rape Allegations

As if we needed another reason to distrust the mainstream media.

It turns out that fake news NBC deliberately sat on information that could have cleared Brett Kavanaugh of the gang rape allegations against him brought forth by Julie Swetnick and her creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti.

NBC News first began its assault on Kavanaugh by peddling the uncorroborated claims of sexual assault Christine Blasey Ford hurled against Brett Kavanaugh.

The network then decided it wasn’t far enough in the gutter so it decided to give Kavanaugh’s 3rd accuser, Julie Swetnick an interview, once again without verifying her claims against Kavanaugh.

On September 26th, Michael Avenatti revealed Brett Kavanaugh’s 3rd accuser–A woman named Julie Swetnick who brought forth allegations of gang rape.

Ms. Swetnick, in a sworn statement says she was a victim of “gang” or “train” rapes where Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge were present. Swetnick also claims she was drugged with Qualuudes or “something similar.” and Kavanaugh would “spike” the punch at parties so girls would lose their inhibitions.

It was all lies–it was all a hoax.

We now know that less than a week later, NBC had information that could have cleared Kavanaugh of these gang rape claims.

On September 30th, just days before Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote, NBC interviewed Michael Avenatti’s second Kavanaugh accuser, a woman who was still unbeknownst to the public at the time.

A few days later, on October 3rd, Avenatti revealed his second client accusing Kavanaugh of sexual abuse. The accuser, whose name was redacted, appeared to back up Swetnick’s claims that Kavanaugh was a rapist. This woman said in a sworn statement she also witnessed Brett Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge “spike punch” and abuse girls at house parties from 1980-1982.

Since NBC News had already interviewed the second accuser, they knew the sworn statement Avenatti released to the public was full of lies.

NBC News didn’t say a word–they sat back as Kavanaugh was defamed and dragged through the mud.

NBC decided to reveal the bombshell information this week after Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) criminally referred Swetnick and Avenatti to the DOJ:

Referring to Kavanaugh spiking the punch, “I didn’t ever think it was Brett,” the woman said to reporters in a phone interview arranged by Avenatti on Sept. 30 after repeated requests to speak with other witnesses who might corroborate Swetnick’s claims. As soon as the call began, the woman said she never met Swetnick in high school and never saw her at parties and had only become friends with her when they were both in their 30s.

It gets worse…

The anonymous woman then contacted NBC News again on October 3rd, the same day that Avenatti revealed her sworn statement to the public and told reporters that the creepy porn lawyer essentially twisted her words:

But reached by phone independently from Avenatti on Oct. 3, the woman said she only “skimmed” the declaration. After reviewing the statement, she wrote in a text on Oct. 4 to NBC News: “It is incorrect that I saw Brett spike the punch. I didn’t see anyone spike the punch…I was very clear with Michael Avenatti from day one.”

When pressed about abusive behavior towards girls, she wrote in a text: “I would not ever allow anyone to be abusive in my presence. Male or female.”

NBC News could have contacted Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley or ranking member Dianne Feinstein and given them this very important information, however; they decided to keep quiet while Brett Kavanaugh, a devout Catholic, husband and father be defamed with false allegations of gang rape.

The ends justifies the means, right NBC?

On Thursday, Chuck Grassley criminally referred Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick to the DOJ for false statements and deliberate obstruction of a congressional investigation. (violations of 18 U.S.C. §§ 371, 1001 and 1505)

On Friday, Grassley sent a second criminal referral to the DOJ about Michael Avenatti regarding the second declaration he submitted to the committee about Brett Kavanaugh.

Grassley said in his letter Friday that he criminally referred Avenatti for a second time because he “twisted [a second woman’s] words.”

NBC News should also have to answer to the Judiciary Committee.
