Michael Avenatti tells CNN’s Chris Cuomo that the American people are too smart to believe Kavanaugh was a ‘virgin’

Published

Monday evening, lawyer Michael Avenatti spoke with CNN’s Chris Cuomo about the latest revelations about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and allegations of sexual assault.

Avenatti said that he has more witnesses that can “show and tell” that Kavanaugh also sexually assaulted them as well.

During an interview with Fox News, Kavanaugh defended himself against the allegations by claiming he was a “virgin” while in high school.

Avenatti told Cuomo that he was not buying this excuse and called it “demonstrably false.”

“I just think it’s absolutely unbelievable. And I think the American people are smarter than this. You cannot reconcile the individual on Fox News with the individual that was joined at the hip with Mark Judge throughout the years at issue,” Avenatti said.

“You just can’t. I don’t believe that America is going to believe what Brett Kavanaugh just stated on Fox News. So, what exactly is he saying? Is he saying that he did not have sexual intercourse?” he continued.

Avenatti went on, “Are we going to get into a definition of sexual intercourse. Does that mean he performed oral sex or had oral sex performed on him? Does that mean any host of any other sexual activities occurred? Or does he want America to believe that the only thing that he did until well into his college years was effectively kissed or French kissed a woman? Is that what he wants America to believe?”

Ex-Defense Secretary lays into Trump’s Syria pullout: He ‘plays into’ authoritarians’ hands to ‘weaken the United States’

Published

On Monday's edition of CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta blasted President Donald Trump over his foreign policy — particularly his withdrawal from Syria.

"Secretary Panetta, just generally what do you make of how this whole withdrawal, non-withdrawal is being handled by the White House?" asked Cooper. "We're seeing the administration trying to walk back a broad policy announcement from the president."

"I think from the very beginning this has been a — probably the most disastrous foreign policy blunder in recent history," said Panetta. "And there is no way when you commit a blunder like this that involves the consequences we're now seeing, there's no way to paint this picture as if somehow everything's going well."

CNN’s Toobin says all evidence points to Trump running an extortion scheme for political dirt

Published

On Monday's edition of CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin laid out how all the evidence points to President Donald Trump attempting to extort Ukraine for political dirt — even the evidence Trump himself has put forward to the public voluntarily.

"May 14th, Trump tells Vice President Pence not to attend Zelensky, the Ukrainian president's inauguration," said Cooper. "July 18th, Trump decides to withhold nearly $400 million in aid to Ukraine that's already been passed by Congress. July 25th is that Trump and Zelensky phone call. I mean, I don't know if it's, you know, if it begins with the call from Putin, but there certainly is a lot of activity, a lot of dominos falling."

Trump’s attack on congressional legitimacy ‘boggles the mind’: Ex-Whitewater counsel

Published

on

On Monday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," former Whitewater senior counsel Paul Rosenzweig and anchor Erin Burnett discussed how Alexander Hamilton warned about leaders like Trump in his writings — and the president's stunning declaration of the impeachment probe as "crap" and "illegitimate."

"Historian Ron Chernow, whose biography on Hamilton is the biography, the one used for the Broadway musical, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post," said Burnett. "He says Hamilton, who was a defender of executive power, would have supported impeaching Donald Trump. He cites one of his Federalist Papers, where Hamilton writes, in part, 'When a man unprincipled in his private life, desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper ... when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity to take every opportunity of embarrassing the general government and bringing it under suspicion, it may justly be suspected that his object is to throw things into confusion that he may ride the storm and direct the whirlwind.' Hamilton warning such a leader will become a demagogue and a tyrant ... Does it sound like Hamilton, even so long ago, could have been warning about a person like President Trump, Paul?"
