NBC sat on exculpatory evidence that proved that the accusations made by Julie Swetnick were a lie. They interviewed a woman who had become friends with Swetnick almost a decade after the alleged rapes, but she was around during the parties and knew of Brett Kavanaugh. She had told NBC that she never saw Kavanaugh spike the drinks and also that she didn’t believe he did.
She also told them that she never witnessed Kavanaugh touching women inappropriately. NBC knew all of this but chose to keep quiet, proving once again that it is not a news site, but rather an arm of the DNC.
NBC News and Avenatti played a huge role in this obscene smear campaign. One notable example was NBC breathlessly publishing and airing an assault allegation against Kavanaugh that was quickly exposed as a hoax. NBC did not even bother to independently corroborate this allegation prior to airing it. A Democrat handed NBC the smear, and NBC ran with it.
To make matters worse, we now know NBC News withheld crucial information that undermined the allegations made by Swetnick, the Avenatti client who accused a high school-aged Kavanaugh of spiking punch bowls at house parties so he and his buddies could engage in serial rapes.
And we know NBC deliberately withheld this crucial information because NBC is now admitting it had this information all the way back on September 30.
But only now is NBC News bothering to report this bombshell:
Referring to Kavanaugh spiking the punch, “I didn’t ever think it was Brett,” the woman said to reporters in a phone interview arranged by Avenatti on Sept. 30 after repeated requests to speak with other witnesses who might corroborate Swetnick’s claims.
When asked in the phone interview if she ever witnessed Kavanaugh act inappropriately towards girls, the woman replied, “no.”
[R]eached by phone independently from Avenatti on Oct. 3, the woman said she only “skimmed” the declaration. After reviewing the statement, she wrote in a text on Oct. 4 to NBC News: “It is incorrect that I saw Brett spike the punch. I didn’t see anyone spike the punch…I was very clear with Michael Avenatti from day one.”
