Dershowitz goes on to question the accuser's claims that she repeatedly returned to the parties where she knew these alleged crimes were being committed. Are these the actions of a reasonable person?
Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz called on lawyer Michael Avenatti to provide proof of the salacious accusations of "gang rape" against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, "or else face consequences."
In an op-ed published by The Hill this weekend, Dershowitz said that Avenatti, the celebrity lawyer of porn star Stormy Daniels, "whose judgments have proved questionable so many times," may in fact be right to ask for a thorough investigation of his newest client's "outrageous claims of multiple gang rapes" witnessed and participated in by Kavanaugh when he was in high school.
"These claims, typical of Avenatti, seem so incredible on their face that even partisan Democratic senators have generally stayed away from them," writes Dershowitz. "Yet, if they are true, they are not only disqualifying for Judge Kavanaugh to become an associate justice of the Supreme Court, but they should result in criminal prosecutions of anyone and everyone who allegedly drugged young girls and subjected them to systematic gang rape on multiple occasions."
Dershowitz underscores that the "deeply flawed" affidavit that Avenatti's client, Julie Swetnick, submitted to the Senate is "so filled with gaps that it would be easy for any experienced cross-examiner to raise doubts about the credibility of the affiant."
