Attorney Michael Avenatti said Monday evening he represents a third woman who will accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct
“My client will prove to be 100 percent credible in her accusations,” Avenatti told reporters at a fundraiser in downtown Los Angeles for a group seeking to defeat California Republican congressmen.
“This is a very strong, courageous woman who had multiple security clearances over the last few years, issued by the federal government, including a secret security clearance issued by the federal government.
“I’m going to caution (President) Donald Trump, Brett Kavanaugh and Senator (Chuck) Grassley and others that when we publicly disclose her name and these allegations, if they come after my client and seek to discredit her by attacking her, they better pack a lunch because I’m going to respond in kind and then some.”
Grassley is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is scheduled to hold a hearing on Thursday where both Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a research psychologist in Northern California who has accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her when they were teenagers, more than 30 years ago, at a high school gathering in suburban Washington, are both planning to testify.
Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations.
Avenatti also represents former adult-film actress and tell-all author Stormy Daniels, who has filed two lawsuits against Trump.
