NBC Hid Crucial Information That Would've Cleared Kavanaugh of Rape Allegations
Vital information withheld y news outlet show political bias at its worst
NBC News purposefully hid vital information that would have supported clearing Brett Kavanaugh's rape allegations that Julie Swetnick and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, leveled against him.
September 16 signaled the beginning of Brett Kavanagh being through a media circus hell, with allegations ranging from sexual assault an even gang rape.
Christine Blasey Ford, who's story fell apart throughout the testimony, was seemingly part of a coordinated effort to derail his confirmation, and who was amongst establishment media assets of the Democrats who did everything to ruin his name.
NBC News and Avenatti where two key entities in the smear campaign.
NBC published an assault allegation against Kavanaugh without proper verification and was quickly exposed as a hoax.
It seems that NBC ran with the story after being handed it by a Democrat.
NBC did not even bother to independently corroborate this allegation prior to airing it. A Democrat handed NBC the smear, and NBC ran with it.
What is worse, NBC withheld important information which undermined the allegations made by Swetnick, who accused Kavanaugh of spiking punch bowls at teenage house parties in order to rape girls.
How do we know NBC withheld the information?
They have admitted they had this information all along - going back to September 30.
On September 30, a week ahead to Kavanaugh’s confirmation, through the most intense days of this scandal, when Kavanaugh’s confirmation was still very much in uncertainty, here is what NBC did not want the public to know…
According to Breitbart: If you recall, although he withheld the name, Avenatti tweeted out a sworn statement from a woman who backed up Swetnick’s outrageous rape allegations.
In her statement, this second woman swore that she, too, had witnessed Kavanaugh spike punch bowls and take sexual advantage of girls.
Well, unbeknownst to us, NBC interviewed this anonymous witness on September 30, and she recanted!
But only now is NBC News bothering to report this bombshell:
Referring to Kavanaugh spiking the punch, “I didn’t ever think it was Brett,” the woman said to reporters in a phone interview arranged by Avenatti on Sept. 30 after repeated requests to speak with other witnesses who might corroborate Swetnick’s claims.
When asked in the phone interview if she ever witnessed Kavanaugh act inappropriately towards girls, the woman replied, “no.”
Wait, it gets worse…
On October 3, NBC News again spoke to this woman, and this time, she all but accused Avenatti of fabricating her statement:
[R]eached by phone independently from Avenatti on Oct. 3, the woman said she only “skimmed” the declaration.
After reviewing the statement, she wrote in a text on Oct. 4 to NBC News: “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.”
When pressed about abusive behavior towards girls, she wrote in a text: “I would not ever allow anyone to be abusive in my presence. Male or female.”
And now, we come to the grand conclusion…
When asked about the total contradiction between his client’s sworn statement and what she told NBC, after it no longer matters, NBC now informs us, “At one point, in an apparent effort to thwart the reporting process, [Avenatti] added in the phone call, “How about this, on background, it’s not the same woman. What are you going to do with that?”
So Avenatti’s witness, the woman he brought forward to bolster Swetnick’s serial rape claim, totally recanted to NBC News, and NBC News hid this news until now.
Moreover, NBC News believed Kavanaugh’s chief tormentor — Avenatti — was striving to “thwart the reporting process,” and NBC also chose to hide this information until long after it mattered.
So what we have here is an NBC News eager to publish completely baseless allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh while at the same time hiding vitally relevant information that would have assisted to clear Kavanaugh at the most crucial time of this scandal.
In other words, in a partisan effort to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation, to do its part to keep Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court, NBC News published uncorroborated smears against him and then engaged in a deliberate cover-up of a legitimate story that backed up Kavanaugh’s claim of his innocence and his claim that there was a organized campaign at work to personally destroy him.
