  • President Donald Trump bashed Attorney Michael Avenatti on
    Wednesday after he
    revealed the identity of a woman
    with new accusations of
    sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett
    Kavanaugh. 
  • Trump referred to Avenatti as a “third rate lawyer” and a
    “total low-life!”
  • Avenatti’s client is Julie Swetnick, who alleges Kavanaugh
    was at a high school party in the 1980s where she was gang
    raped. 

President Donald Trump bashed Attorney Michael Avenatti on
Wednesday after he
revealed the identity of a woman
with new accusations of
sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett
Kavanaugh. 

Avenatti is a third rate lawyer who is good at making
false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on
Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He is just looking for attention and
doesn’t want people to look at his past record and relationships
– a total low-life!” Trump said in a tweet.

Trump has a history with Avenatti, but this was the first
time the president has tweeted about him. 

Avenatti also represents adult-film actress Stormy Daniels,
whom Trump gave hush money to over an alleged extramarital
affair. 

The lawyer responded to Trump in a tweet, calling the
president a “habitual liar and complete narcissist.”

“‘False accusations?’ Like those crimes your fixer Cohen
pled to? You are an habitual liar and complete narcissist who
also is a disgrace as a president and an embarrassment to our
nation. You are so inept that your ‘best and brightest’ are Cohen
and Giuliani. Let’s go,” Avenatti said.

Avenatti on Wednesday revealed his client as Julie
Swetnick, who 

alleges Kavanaugh was at a party
when they were both in high school during the early 1980s where
she was gang raped.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Avenatti said, “We demand an
immediate FBI investigation into the allegations. Under no
circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full
and complete investigation.”

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual assault or misconduct
by three women in high school or college, including Christine
Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez. 

Ford alleges Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party when they
were both teenagers, attempting to force himself on her while
covering her mouth with his hands when she attempted to scream.
Ramirez, who went to Yale University at the same time as
Kavanaugh, alleges he shoved his penis into her face at a party
in college. 

Ford and Kavanaugh are set to testify before the Senate
Judiciary Committee on her allegation on Thursday. 

Meanwhile, Ramirez has also expressed a
willingness to testify
