[Ed. – Swetnick told them what she had sworn to in her affidavit wasn’t true, a supposed corroborating witness changed her story, thus undermining Swetnick’s original affidavit, and Avenatti taunted NBC by changing HIS story about it on background and daring them to doing something about it. Instead of reporting that, NBC kept silent.]
NBC interviewed Swetnick on October 1. At the time, she backtracked on her key claims regarding Kavanaugh, and undermined her own story. Once her story crumbled, Avenatti released a second sworn statement from an unnamed woman, alleging almost identical claims as Swetnick. …
This alleged corroborating witness then told reporters she never witnessed Kavanaugh act inappropriately toward women, but said everyone at these parties drank heavily.
NBC again contacted this woman on October 3, the day Avenatti tweeted out her statement. At this time, she told the media outlet she only “skimmed” the declaration. The next day – October 4 – she texted NBC, saying: “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.”
