Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) were slammed on Wednesday for refusing to believe sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.


Attorney Michael Avenatti lashed out at the two -- and President Donald Trump -- for refusing to believe the allegations of gang rape by his client, Julie Swetnick.

"Are you three privileged, white men calling my client Julie a liar?" Avenatti asked on Twitter.

"How dare you attack a sexual assault victim," he continued. "She has risked her life to do the right thing."

"You should be ashamed of yourselves. Your actions are disgraceful," he added.

Earlier, Sen. Graham had called Avenatti "the lawyer to porn stars" and said he "has a difficult time believing" the allegations.

Chairman Grassley has said he is proceeding with Judge Kavanaugh's nomination despite the shocking allegation that he drugged and gang raped women.

Judge Kavanaugh is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary on Thursday.
