Michael Avenatti opened up publicly with his client Julie Swetnick on Wednesday regarding her testimony over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh‘s sexual misconduct. However, some people believed Stormy Daniels‘ lawyer fell for a prank, suggesting Swetnick and her story were fictional. Avenatti has responded to those claims.


Avenatti directly tackled the rumors on Tuesday, tweeting out how he has received “multiple inquires” concerning whether he was “‘duped’ or ‘pranked’ by” a 4chan user. “This is completely false,” the attorney affirmed. “It never happened; it is a total fabrication. None of it is true. The right must be very worried. They should be.”

“This is just crazy that somebody can just tweet something out like this, or post it, and people just take it as truth,” Avenatti exclaimed to Politico. “It’s crazy.”

Avenatti said, “I made the determination she was 100 percent credible well before Sunday night. We’ve received over 3,000 inquiries in the last six months from people with all kinds of crazy stories and fabrications. I’ve heard it all. I’ve seen it all. Like we don’t vet clients. Give me a break.”


Nevertheless, the attention Avenatti has been subjected to was overwhelming, enough so to have inspired him to temporarily make his Twitter account private. As of this writing, however, Avenatti’s Twitter has been restored to its public visibility.
