▷ ‘She’s not credible’: Ex-boyfriend filed restraining order against Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick ✅

Attention-seeking porn lawyer Michael Avenatti may have handed Judge Brett Kavanaugh his ticket to the Supreme Court when he advanced allegations so implausibly sleazy and unverifiable that they only work to undermine the testimony of other Kavanaugh accusers and expose the entire Democratic charade as a coordinated smear campaign. Working through the most formal and secure government channels he could find — that is, Twitter — Avenatti alleged that a teenage Kavanaugh was involved in a brutal gang rape ring, and his client could prove it.

Except his client, Julie Swetnick, has yet to provide any corroborating evidence in the form of witnesses, dates, or locations, and none of the hundreds of people who should have knowledge of these gang rapes have come forward to verify her claims. And any credibility that Swetnick may have retained is quickly vanishing after her ex-boyfriend told Politico that he filed a restraining order against her in 2001. “She’s not credible. Not at all,” said Swetnick’s former boyfriend, Richard Vinneccy.

Avenatti’s angel

On March 1, 2001, Vinneccy filed a complaint with a Miami-Dade County court alleging that Swetnick threatened him after he ended their four-year relationship. The 55-year-old registered Democrat said that the threats even followed him into future relationships and his current marriage.

“Right after I broke up with her, she was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time,” Vinneccy said in a telephone interview with Politico. “I know a lot about her.”

Swetnick claims that sometime between 1981 and 1982, she attended more than 10 house parties where Kavanaugh and his boyhood friend, Mark Judge, were present. She says she remembered seeing Kavanaugh loitering outside of a closed door to a room where boys were allegedly taking their turns having sex with unidentified inebriated women.

In her sworn affidavit to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Swetnick says she became a victim of one of the gang rapes herself sometime in 1982. While she claims that Kavanaugh was present at the time, she never specifically accused the judge of any inappropriate sexual behavior.

The stink test

It didn’t take long, however, before the wheels started to fall off of Swetnick’s improbable tale of privileged teenage rape gangs gone wild. Even Democrats had to wonder why, after bearing witness to repeated gang rapes, Swetnick would continue to attend these risqué parties and indulge in alcoholic beverages until she herself became a victim.

What’s more, what was Swetnick, a college-aged student three years older than Kavanaugh, doing at parties attended by boys as young as 15? Of course, Avenatti hasn’t been much help, scheduling hours of media appearances while successfully evading any questions that could corroborate his client’s claims or explain the weaknesses surrounding her allegations.

Although she swore that “other witnesses … can attest to the truthfulness” of her allegations, the editors at the National Review posed a serious question that demands an immediate answer: “Where are the tens or hundreds of people who must have close knowledge of this serial criminality?” Swetnick has so far failed to name a single witness, perpetrator or victim to back up her unlikely story.

Caught off guard

When asked about the restraining order by Politico on Wednesday evening, Avenatti admitted it was news to him — but disputed it anyway.

“Complete nonsense. No truth to this at all. Her ex-boyfriend fraudulently used her resume to apply for and obtain jobs and was caught by her,” Avenatti told Politico. “Why are you all attacking a sexual assault victim? Would that be appropriate in a court of law?”

Maybe not. But Democrats have consistently reminded their colleagues from across that aisle that Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings are not “in a court of law” and have repeatedly asserted that the Supreme Court nominee does not deserve a presumption of innocence and other due process guarantees.

So where does this leave Americans who are on the fence regarding not only Swetnick’s fantastic claims, but those other uncorroborated allegations forwarded by Kavanaugh’s first two accusers? While efforts to impugn Kavanaugh’s name and character are beginning to look closer every day to a Democratic smear campaign, the voting public may not know the half of it.

“I have a lot of facts, evidence, that what she’s saying is not true at all,” admitted Swetnick’s ex-boyfriend.

By all means, Mr. Vinneccy, indulge us.
