Was the Avenatti Bombshell Witness Claim All the Result of a Well Executed 4Chan Prank?

Before he began representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in her legal fight against the president, Avenatti was virtually unknown outside a small legal community. But in less than six months, the sharp-witted litigator has skyrocketed to becoming a household name as one of President Donald Trump's chief critics. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File)

The accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have really brought out the desperation from Democrats and their pet media, but this latest piece of news floating around about the Avanetti scandal may really highlight just how bad they need a win.


As Streiff wrote on Sunday, former Stormy Daniels lawyer Micahel Avanetti announced on Twitter that he had “credible information” surrounding the sexual behavior of Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge. So good was the evidence that Avenatti said that he was demanding the opportunity to testify in order to give the evidence to judiciary committee and that all confirmation proceedings should be halted.

So confident was Avanetti that he appeared on MSNBC to tell Rachel Maddow all about it, as Alex Parker highlighted, and trumpeted his witness as some kind of Kavanaugh killer. He played it up on Twitter like this would be the story of the year.

Then suddenly, Avenatti’s confidence began to slip and before we knew it, he had privatized his account. The obvious explanation was that something had blown up in his face, and he had gone into hiding. What it was, however, remained a mystery.

Until, possibly, now.

According to a user on 4Chan, he and his girlfriend were behind Avenatti’s claims about having a bombshell witness, only the entire thing was a total prank. As he highlights in his thread, the man and his girlfriend used burner phones to convince Avanetti that the girlfriend had sex with Kavanaugh and Judge at the same time. She tells Avenatti to call another number belonging to the boyfriend, who acts as a classmate of Kavanaugh’s from his high school days and confirms everything.


Before they’re done, Avenatti is so desperate to have her come forward that he has offered the girlfriend $75,000 in order to appear on Anderson Cooper’s show on CNN. At that point, the 4Chan user claims he and his girlfriend backed off.

You can read the post for yourself below, but be warned, there is graphic language and sexual content.

It’s possible that this 4Chan user is lying, and he’s pranking the general public. However, it would not surprise me to know that the reason behind Avenatti’s sudden disappearance was the result of a 4Chan prank. It wouldn’t be the first time a 4Chan user or group of 4Chan users have gone above and beyond to make headlines.

If this 4Chan story is real, then this is one of the greatest events in 2018.
