Liberal lawyer and Harvard Law Professor, Alan Dershowitz, says the FBI should investigate Julie Swetnick, a client of lawyer Michael Avenatti for making false statements. He believes it is possible that she made the entire story up. No kidding? Considering all the scams she has tried to pull over the years, it would surprise no one.
The entire story is implausible. According to her, ten women were assaulted and no one reported it. Furthermore, no one at the parties reported it. And finally, the women knew that the rapes were happening and still continued to go to the parties? She should have begun her affidavit with, “Once upon a time………….”
“I believed [Blasey Ford]. I thought she made a very, very compelling case, but it’s years and years and years ago, could be a case of mistaken identification,” Dershowitz said. “She could misremember. He could misremember. I’m not in any way accusing her of anything wrong. The sexual McCarthyism came from people like Avenatti and his client. There is certainly a possibility — a possibility — that she may have made that up out of whole cloth. Never met the man. Didn’t travel in the same social circles.”
Dershowitz then called for “consequences” for women who “deliberately and willfully” falsely accuse someone of sexual misconduct.
“I want the FBI to look into that because the #MeToo movement needs to understand there’s no genetically linked lying gene or truth telling gene and if a woman deliberately and willfully falsely accuses somebody of sexual misconduct, there have to be consequences,” he said. “So if there are going to be investigations, let the investigations be fair on both sides.”
Until they do, investigate and jail women who lie, this will continue to happen.
