Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 06, 2018

Senate Democrats believed they had Brett Kavanaugh on the ropes. Christine Blasey Ford had just revealed her identity and was prepared to testify in public, detailing her allegations that Kavanaugh had tried to sexual assault her more than three decades ago. On top of that, a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, was accusing Kavanaugh of exposing his genitals to her while they were college students.

Then came Michael Avenatti and his client's claims of gang rape parties.

But the eye-popping nature of those claims suddenly gave Republicans an opportunity to shift the narrative and make a broader case that the growing accusations of sexual misconduct amounted to an orchestrated Democratic smear campaign.

A host of Democratic senators and senior aides told CNN that the allegations from Avenatti's client gave the GOP an opening to conflate -- and dismiss -- all the allegations in one broad brush.

"Democrats and the country would have been better off if Mr. Avenatti spent his time on his Iowa vanity project rather than meddling in Supreme Court fights," a senior Senate Democratic aide fumed, referring to Avenatti toying with the idea of seeking the Democratic presidential nomination. "His involvement set us back, absolutely."

True to form, the Dems have no self-awareness.

First it was the Russians, now it is Avenatti.

They need to understand the people do not want what they are selling.

There will always be scumbags like Avenatti. The real culprits are outlets like CNN and MSNBC, where you could find this guy nightly being treated like a reliable source of information.

Interesting how the DR Left is avoiding this thread like the plague that Avenatti obviously is.

I wonder if ABlock still wants him to run for POTUS?

Another DEET repellant thread.

Avenatti and his clients are on the same level as Kathy Griffin;

nutter elevator screamers.

Avenatti brought down Cohen and got him to point to Trump as his co-conspirator in paying a porn star hush money.

He seems to be able to play the FBI and the media like a fiddle.

He does have it easy going after the most corrupt potus ever.

CNN and MSNBC are just as bad as FOX. They really don't give two ----- about the political views of their viewers, other than how they can profit off of them.
