The Shoe on the Other Foot


Michael Avenatti and Julie Swetnick may need to lawyer up….err…or something, ’cause Chuck Grassley just asked for an investigation into the pair who accused Bret Kavanaugh of all kinds of nasty stuff just a few short weeks ago.  From the ZeroHedge post:

Attorney Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick have been referred to the Justice Department for criminal investigation for a “potential conspiracy to provide materially false statements to Congress and obstruct a congressional committee investigation, three separate crimes, in the course of considering Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States,” according to a statement released by the Judiciary Committee. 

I confess that, although I shouldn’t, I find myself highly amused when lawyers get investigated, especially when the lawyers in question have a somewhat sleazy past.  I’m popping the popcorn right now so it’ll be ready when the investigation starts.
