Have you ever seen people jump on a proverbial bandwagon just because it seemed like the thing to do?
Some of the #MeToo accusers have real reasons to make their accusations, but there are others who have jumped on the bandwagon just because it was the thing to do.
This happened with the accusations made against Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign and against Judge Roy Moore when he ran for Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat.
Once someone comes forward, it seems that there are also others who follow suit even without any evidence.
In the case of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, once one accusation was made against him, it was expected to have others come forward all at the last minute.
(The Washington Times) – Julie Swetnick, the third woman to come forward with allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, gave her first on-camera interview about the accusations.
Ms. Swetnick spoke with John Heilemann from Showtimes’ “The Circus” about why she came forward so late in the nomination process.
“Morning Joe” showed a preview of the interview Thursday morning, but the full conversation will air Sunday on Showtime. It is the first time any of the women with allegations against Judge Kavanaugh have spoken on camera.
“Well, it wasn’t that I wanted to come out one day before the hearings,” she said. Ms. Swetnick is being represented by Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels. “Circumstances brought it out that way. This is something that occurred a long time ago. It’s not that I just thought about it. It’s been on my mind ever since the occurrence.” …
You also have to understand that the lawyer that is representing the latest Kavanaugh accuser is none other than Michael Avenatti.
Avenatti has a long track record of going after Donald Trump, going back long before he launched a political career.
Avenatti could be described as a person obsessed with destroying Trump at all costs.
Avenatti’s track record alone should raise many red flags with the latest accuser.
