The Senate judiciary committee has just announced that is is referring false allegations it received about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh for criminal prosecution.

The one Grassley refers to is the claim that Kavanaugh raped a woman on a boat in 1985. Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse received that allegation but first shopped it to the media before turning it over to Senate investigators.

It is difficult to see how Julie Swetnick evades attention from the FBI if Grassley’s criminal referrals are taken seriously at all. Not only is she a totally unbelievable witness, her story is so farfetched that it doesn’t even rise to the level of non-credible. Avenatti is probably gambling that the FBI will be reticent to prosecute a woman for accusing a man of rape even though she knows it is false. I’m not sure that is a terribly safe bet right now.

[I swear every time I see that picture of Avenatti I am reminded of this Seinfeld scene]
