NBC News is in hot water for withholding information that just didn’t fit the narrative they wanted during the Kavanaugh confirmation. The information would have helped Brett Kavanaugh in his desire to clear his name by casting serious doubt on wild claims about the now-Supreme Court Justice.


Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti said his client Julie Swetnick claimed that Brett Kavanaugh took part in high school gang rapes. NBC News was put in contact with an anonymous woman by Avenatti who claimed she could corroborate Swetnick’s allegations. Instead, the woman accused Avenatti of “twisting” her words. The kicker is that NBC STILL went with the woman’s story!

Flash forward three whole weeks later and NBC publishes an article about how there are questions about Avenatti’s claims. In the article, “New questions raised about Avenatti claims regarding Kavanaugh,”.  NBC admitted the unidentified woman repudiated the sworn statement Avenatti provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee on her behalf to corroborate Swetnick’s claims.

NBC News reporters stated:

“Reached 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,’” NBC News reporters Kate Snow and Anna Schecter wrote on Thursday.
