Trump: Avenatti Should Be Sued For Vicious Lies About Kavanaugh

 President Trump has called for legal action to be taken against ‘creepy porn lawyer’ Michael Avenatti for spreading vicious and filthy lies about Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Speaking to Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday, Trump accused senior Democrat officials of fabricating stories about Justice Kavanaugh in an attempt to prevent his confirmation to the Supreme Court. reports: Pirro praised Trump for ‘sticking with Kavanaugh during his darkest moments.’

Part 1 of my exclusive interview with the President @realDonaldTrump, take a look:

‘It would have been very unfair to him [if Trump withdrew the nomination],’ the president told Pirro.

‘He’s a highly respected man. What the Democrats did was disgraceful.

‘These things happened that just came out of the wind. There was no corroboration.

‘There was no anything, Jeanine.’

Trump praised Kavanaugh as a ‘high quality, brilliant man’ who ‘will be a phenomenal Supreme Court justice.’

The president slammed the Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee – particularly New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, California Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal.

Trump referred to Booker as ‘the terrible mayor of Newark.’ He also said Blumenthal ‘falsified his service in Vietnam’ while accusing Feinstein of ‘leaking the papers’ – a reference to a letter written by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in which she asked for confidentiality while accusing Kavanaugh of assault.

Trump told Pirro that he thought in the wake of Kavanaugh’s confirmation that ‘the Republicans are going to do very well’ in the upcoming midterm elections.

‘We have these tiny majorities [in Congress],’ Trump told Pirro. ‘If somebody catches a cold, we have to wait until they come back.

‘We need more votes to get it all done.’

Pirro asked Trump about comments he made which appeared to be mocking of Ford during a rally in Mississippi earlier this week.

‘There were a lot of things happening that weren’t true and a lot of things left unsaid,’ the president said.

Michael Avenatti

.@realDonaldTrump - You are an habitual liar and a disgrace to this nation. You again claimed tonight that I have made false accusations against you. Name them! Those felonies that Cohen pled guilty to? The allegations about you having sex with my client with a 4 mo old at home?

Michael Avenatti

And btw, I have never seen a man despised in his own home city more than you. It turns out that the people of NYC knew you were a complete fraud who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and a gold toilet under this butt long before the rest of us. You are an embarrassment.

‘I thought I had to even the playing field.

‘It was unfair to the judge, and now I can say Justice Kavanaugh.

‘It was an unfair situation.

‘Once I did that it started to sail through. He was treated very, very unfairly, Jeanine.’

Trump agreed with Pirro’s assessment that the president’s comments at the rally were a ‘turning point’ which cemented Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

The president also accused Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Julie Swetnick and Stormy Daniels, of making false allegations against him.

Swetnick claimed that during a house party, Kavanaugh, who was in high school at the time, was present when boys drugged and gang-raped girls.

Avenatti also represents Daniels, who claims that she and Trump had sex over a decade ago.

She then says she was paid $150,000 to sign a nondisclosure agreement barring her from talking about the alleged affair.

‘He made false accusations about me,’ Trump says of Avenatti.

‘It’s a disgrace they are able to do it. I would love to see our libel laws get toughened up.

‘But he made false statements.’

Avenatti fired back at Trump on Twitter.

‘You are an habitual liar and a disgrace to this nation,’ the attorney tweeted on Saturday.

‘You again claimed tonight that I have made false accusations against you. Name them!

‘Those felonies that Cohen pled guilty to? The allegations about you having sex with my client with a 4 mo old at home?’

Avenatti referenced Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer and fixer who arranged the payment to Stormy Daniels.

Cohen pleaded guilty to financial crimes and is cooperating with federal prosecutors in an investigation that was triggered by news of the hush money payments to Daniels, also known as Stephanie Clifford.

In another tweet, Avenatti took a more personal shot at Trump.

‘I have never seen a man despised in his own home city more than you,’ Avenatti tweeted at Trump.

‘It turns out that the people of NYC knew you were a complete fraud who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and a gold toilet under this butt long before the rest of us.

‘You are an embarrassment.’

Trump said the Democrats will pay a price at the ballot box for trying to derail Kavanaugh’s nomination.

‘I think they overplayed their hand,’ the president said.

‘They were dishonest with the leak and other things they did. Look at the lawyers representing certain people.’

Trump was referring to Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, who was referred to her by Feinstein, according to Fox News.

‘How did they end up with all these lawyers who are always the same ones?’ Trump said.

The president said Republicans stand to benefit when voters head to the polls in a month.

‘I can tell the enthusiasm and love and the feeling in the Republican Party is higher than I have ever seen it,’ the president said.

‘I see polls going up like rocket ships. Races that will be won on margins where the Republicans wouldn’t have won.’

Trump repeated his criticism of Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, who was the only Republican to oppose Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

‘I thought it was a sad vote and disgraceful,’ the president said.

‘I appreciate that a Democrat, Joe Manchin voted in favor of Kavanaugh. And that was a good thing.

‘But [Murkowski’s vote] was very disappointing. The people of Alaska, I had tremendous success for them.

‘ I have done so much for Alaska, I was shocked to see her vote.

‘And frankly so were other Republicans. It was a very sad day I think for her.

‘I think it will go down as a sad day for her because he’ll be a great Supreme Court justice.’

 Trump, You Don't Say....

 Will  Tea Party Hand The Liberals Their Ass On Election Day? 

It was this week two years ago that Hillary Clinton’s victory looked assured, when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault appeared all but certain to end his campaign.

Jesse Ferguson remembers it well. The deputy press secretary for Clinton’s campaign also remembers what happened a month later.

It’s why this veteran Democratic operative can’t shake the feeling that, as promising as the next election looks for his party, it might still all turn out wrong.

“Election Day will either prove to me I have PTSD or show I’ve been living déjà vu,” Ferguson said. “I just don’t know which yet.”

Ferguson is one of many Democrats who felt the string of unexpected defeat in 2016 and are now closely — and nervously — watching the current election near its end, wondering if history will repeat itself. This year, instead of trying to win the presidency, Democrats have placed an onus on trying to gain 23 House seats and win a majority.

The anxiety isn’t universal, with many party leaders professing confidently and repeatedly that this year really is different.

But even some of them acknowledge the similarities between the current and previous election: Trump is unpopular and beset by scandal, Democrats hold leads in the polls, and some Republicans are openly pessimistic.

FiveThirtyEight gives Democrats a 76.9 percent chance of winning the House one month before Election Day. Their odds for Clinton’s victory two years ago? 71.4 percent.

The abundance of optimism brings back queasy memories for Jesse Lehrich, who worked on the Clinton campaign and remembers watching the returns come in from the Javits Center in New York.

“I was getting texts after the result was clear – including even from some political reporters and operatives – texting me, you know, ‘Are you guys starting to get nervous?’ or ‘What’s her most likely path?’” he said. “I was like, ‘What do you mean, starting to get nervous? What path? They just called Wisconsin. We lost.’”

“People were so slow to process that reality because they just hadn’t considered the possibility that Donald Trump was going to be the next president,” he continued.

Lehrich said he sees similarities between 2016 and 2018. But he said he thought Democrats were cognizant of the parallels and determined not to let up a month before the election, as many voters might have two years ago.

Other Democratic leaders aren’t so sure. Asked if he thought his party was overconfident, Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton responded flatly, “Yes.”

Democrats could win a lot of House seats, he said, or could still fall short of capturing a majority.

“The point is that we’ve got to realize that this not just some unstoppable blue wave but rather a lot of tough races that will be hard-fought victories,” Moulton said.

If Democrats are universally nervous about anything after 2016, it’s polling. The polls weren’t actually as favorable to Clinton and the Democrats as some remember, something 538’s Nate Silver and some other journalists pointed out at the time.

But Clinton’s decision not to campaign in a state she’d lose, Wisconsin, and the failure of pollsters everywhere to miss a wave of Trump supporters in red areas are mistakes Democrats are still grappling with today.

“Clearly last cycle, polling was off,” Ben Ray Lujan, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told reporters last month. “There were a lot of predictions that were made last cycle that didn’t come to fruition.”

Lujan emphasized in particular how pollsters missed the rural vote, calling it a “devastating mistake.” He said the DCCC has taken deliberate steps since 2016 to get it right this time around, but underscored a congressional majority still required a tooth-and-nail fight.

“So I’m confident with the team that’s been assembled, but I’m definitely cognizant of the fact we need to understand these models and understand the data for what it is,” he said.

One Democratic pollster said the data he’s seen makes plain that the party is favored to win a majority — but that it’s still not a sure thing. He said even now it’s unclear if the political environment will create an electoral tsunami, or merely a good year where Democrats might still fall short of a House majority.

“We’ve all learned a lesson from 2016 that there are multiple possibilities and outcomes,” said the pollster, granted anonymity to discuss polling data one month before the election. “And if you haven’t learned that lesson, shame on you. That 20 percent outcome can happen. That 30 percent outcome can happen.”

This year, Democrats have history on their side: The incumbent president’s party historically struggles during midterm elections. That wasn’t the case in 2016, when Democrats were trying to win the presidency for three consecutive terms for the first time in their history since Franklin Delano Roosevelt (The GOP accomplished the feat only once in the same period, with Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.)

Some Democratic leaders say the reality of Trump’s presidency — unlike its hypothetical state in 2016 — changes the dynamic entirely.

“Democratic energy is at nuclear levels,” said Steve Israel, a former DCCC chairman. “Democrats would crawl over broken glass to vote in this election.”

Israel said he still has concerns about November (political operatives always have concerns about the upcoming election). But he waves away the notion that the party might fall short of a House majority.

“Most Democrats and a heck of a lot of Republicans I speak to believe that Democrats will have the majority,” he said. “The real question is, by how much?”

Ferguson is, of course, of two minds: He thinks the push to repeal the Affordable Care Act and the day-to-day reality of Trump’s presidency fundamentally changes how voters will see this election.

But he’s also gun-shy about what could change in the next month, after the multitude of surprises that occurred during the last month of the 2016 race, whether the “Access Hollywood” recording or then-FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that the investigation into Clinton’s emails was re-opened.

Many Republicans argue the 2018 election has already seen its October surprise, with the confirmation fight over Brett Kavanaugh finally motivating conservative voters to vote.

“I don’t know what the October surprises will be,” Ferguson said. “But we make a mistake if we assume that what we’re seeing today is what we’ll see for the entire month. We lived through it two years ago.”
