Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing a woman who claims she saw Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at parties in the 1980s where she and other teams were gang-raped, insisted Thursday that she is telling the truth.
"My client is 100 percent credible," Avenatti told CNN's "New Day" about his client, Julie Swetnick. "Anybody that has seen my track record over the last several months, I don't traffic in rumor and nonsense. We are encouraging the FBI to immediately get involved and sit down with my client for an interview."
He further called the idea that his client and the other women who have come forward with complaints against Kavanaugh are conspiring to derail his nomination "ludicrous."
"None of them have ever met each other, and all cannot be lying, and this man does not belong on the U.S. Supreme Court until a full investigation (is held)," he said.
Avenatti said his client also has offered to testify under oath, but that the Senate Judiciary Committee would not allow her to do that or to allow the FBI to get involved.
Swetnick says that while they were teenagers, she went to several parties during which teens were plied with drugs and alcohol and raped by a "train" of boys who would line up for the attacks.
There have been questions about why Swetnick would continue to go to the parties, and Avenatti said that was because she did not understand what was happening until it happened to her.
"A lot of this would be substantiated if there was an investigation, which is what we want," said Avenatti.
