Michael Avenatti is having a bad week.
The porn star lawyer this week was hit with 4.85 million legal fee, now Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has referred Avenatti and his client, Julie Swetnick, for criminal investigation regarding a potential “conspiracy” to provide false statements to Congress and obstruct its investigation. But, there’s more.
Michael Avenatti, the creepy porn lawyer, represents Julie Swetick who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct at the 11th hour before his Supreme Court confirmation.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday, writing that Swetnick and Avenatti’s allegations were leveled at a “suspicious” time.
