Stormy Daniels‘ attorney Michael Avenatti, now representing a client he claims has information about “gang rapes” involving Brett Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge, has responded to Kavanaugh’s Monday night appearance on Fox News.
Avenatti cut right to the chase. He said Kavanaugh is a “liar” and said people with common sense know the truth about that interview and the accusations.
“Brett Kavanaugh is a liar. His ‘I was just an innocent boy’ claims on Fox are laughable and an insult to any American with common sense,” he said. “They are irreconcilable with the yearbook, many witnesses, & my clients.”
Up to now, Avenatti has been hinting, but has not revealed the identity of a client/clients who he says have “credible evidence” that Kavanaugh and Judge were involved in plying women with “alcohol/drugs” in order to “gang rape” them — a “train.”
Kavanaugh called that charge “totally false and outrageous.”
Avenatti also said that Kavanaugh’s claims about the drinking age at the time “appear to be false.”
Kavanaugh did admit that “yes, there were parties. And the drinking age was 18, and yes, the seniors were legal and had beer there.”
“And yes, people might have had too many beers on occasion and people generally in high school – I think all of us have probably done things we look back on in high school and regret or cringe a bit, but that’s not what we’re talking about,” he added.”We’re talking about an allegation of sexual assault. I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone.”
Maryland did change the drinking age from 18 to 21 in 1982, the year the alleged attempted sexual assault of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is believed to have occurred.
According to the Washington Post of that time, Marlyand’s House Judiciary Committee “approved a compromise bill to raise the age to 21 and to ‘grandfather’ in those persons now legally allowed to drink.”
“Under that bill, anyone who turns 18 after July 1 would have to wait three years to drink. Anyone 18 years old before July 1 could continue to drink legally,” the Post said.
July 1, 1982 is when the new law went into effect.
Either way, Kavanaugh would have been 17 at the time and not legally able to drink, as he was born on Feb. 12, 1965. Seniors who were “grandfathered in” would have been able to.
