Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the judiciary committee, is asking the Justice Department to investigate Julie Swetnick and her attorney Michael Avenatti for allegedly making false statements during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process for the Supreme Court.

Grassley, R-Iowa, is asking for an FBI probe into potential conspiracy, false statements and obstruction of Congress, USA Today is reporting.

Swetnick, in a written statement given to the panel on Sept. 26, said Kavanaugh would "cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be 'gang raped' in a side room or bedroom by a 'train' of numerous boys" during the early 1980s, the newspaper said.

Avenatti said he would welcome an investigation.

He tweeted: “It is ironic that Senator Grassley now is interested in investigations. He didn’t care when it came to putting a man on the SCOTUS for life. We welcome the investigation as now we can finally get to the bottom of Judge Kavanaugh’s lies and conduct. Let the truth be known.”

And he added: “Maybe if Grassley was actually a lawyer that knew something about the law, he would realize what he has done. He just opened up Pandora’s box as it relates to Justice Kavanaugh’s conduct. It is Christmas in October!”

Axios published a copy of Grassley’s letter asking for Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Diredctor Christopher Wray to order the probe.

“When charlatans make false claims to the committee – claims that may earn them short-term media exposure and financial gain, but which hinder the committee’s ability to its job – then there should be consequences,” he said.
