Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti — who is also reportedly considering running for president — announced on Twitter on Sunday evening that he is representing a “woman with credible information” about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Avenatti also claimed he had “significant evidence” to prove that Kavanaugh and Mark Judge — the classmate named by Christine Blasey Ford as being in the room when Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her — “would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs.”

In a follow up interview with Politico on Sunday, Avenatti said he is currently representing a group of people who can corroborate the allegations made against Kavanaugh. One member of the group is a victim, he said.

“She will testify, but before she does, she will likely appear on camera for an interview,” he told Politico, adding that the allegations are “not out of character from what Dr. Ford said.” He also shared an email he had sent to Chief Counsel for nominations for the Senate Judiciary Committee Mike Davis and suggested in the contents of the email that the “targeting of women with alcohol/drugs” could allude to taking turns having sex with women when they were intoxicated, as Judge’s ex-wife outlined to the New Yorker. 

The tweet came just after the New Yorker published a story, outlining the allegations of one of Kavanaugh’s former Yale classmates, who alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her and forced her to touch his genitals without her consent.
