President Donald Trump slammed Michael Avenatti on Twitter on Wednesday after the attorney revealed new sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
"Avenatti is a third-rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh," Trump tweeted. "He is just looking for attention and doesn't want people to look at his past record and relationships – a total low-life!"
Avenatti responded a few minutes later with a tweet of his own, saying, "'False accusations?' Like those crimes your fixer Cohen pled to?" referring to Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen. "You are an habitual liar and complete narcissist who also is a disgrace as a president and an embarrassment to our nation. You are so inept that your 'best and brightest' are Cohen and [Rudy] Giuliani. Let's go."
Avenatti's client, Julie Swetnick, accused Kavanaugh of participating in attempts during high school to get girls intoxicated so a group of boys could have sex with them and said Kavanaugh was present during her "gang rape" at a party in the 1980s, according to The Hill.
Kavanaugh denied the allegations, calling them "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone," and said he does not know who Swetnick is.
