NBC Admits It Hid Evidence That Undermined Kavanaugh Accuser Julie Swetnick’s Wild Claims

The liberal media clearly has an agenda when it comes to advancing abortion and it also has an obvious bias when it comes to politics. A new report indicates NBC sat on evidence that would have helped defend Justice Brett Kavanaugh against false and unsubstantiated claims that he attended so-called gang rape parties.

Julie Swetnick was the third woman to accuse Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, and she appeared to have invented wild claims of rape trains and parties she and Kavanaugh allegedly attended, despite no proof or evidence supporting the claims, where women were drugged and raped.

Swetnick, who is being represented by Michael Avenatti, sent a declaration to the Senate Judiciary Committee claiming that she attended house parties in the early 1980s where she saw Kavanaugh mistreating women and spiking their drinks.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is looking for a possible criminal probe against the two whose accusations appeared the most bogus.

Now, a new report indicates NBC now acknowledges that it had information that undermined the credibility of her claims. The timeline at the DailyWire is pretty damning. Ultimately:

NBC was the worst offender. The network interviewed Swetnick even though it said up front it couldn’t verify her claims. This is Journalism Malpractice 101; you don’t put out possibly defamatory information you can’t verify. Of course, the media was totally okay with doing this if it meant keeping Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court. They didn’t care about the consequences to his family or his reputation.

It is now the end of October, and we are just now hearing all of this from NBC. The outlet sat on information that one of Kavanaugh’s accusers disputed her sworn statement, presented by Michael Avenatti. This information would have called into question the statement from Swetnick, Avenatti’s other client. This also would have called into question NBC’s decision to air an interview with Swetnick, who changed her story about what she witnessed 30 years ago.

NBC sat on this information, which would have undermined some of Kavanaugh’s accusers, and is only now releasing it after Kavanaugh was confirmed and its interview was mentioned in a referral to the DOJ.

Kavanaugh previously served on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for D.C. for more than a decade, where he developed an extensive record of protecting religious liberty and enforcing restrictions on abortion. Pro-life leaders believe he will do the same on the U.S. Supreme Court.

He may have his first chance to issue a ruling related to abortion over a possible case on an Indiana law protecting babies with Down Syndrome from abortions.
