Chuck Grassley Calls For FBI Probe Into Sexual Assault Victim Julie Swetnick For Accusing Kavanaugh: Report

After sending a slap in the face message to all sexual assault victims and confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court after he was accused by multiple women of sexual abuse, Chuck Grassley has decided that it’s not okay to come forward if you’re a rape victim.

Grassley, who is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called for an investigation into the allegations that were made by the second woman who came forward about Kavanaugh.

After Christine Blasey Ford came forward and accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school, Julie Swetnick came forward as well and accused the newest Supreme Court Justice of taking part in a gang rape.

Now, after fighting against conducting an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh during his hearing, Grassley is calling for a full probe by the FBI and DOJ to “look into whether these were materially false statements made to the committee.”

Michael Avenatti, who represented Swetnick, responded to the news via Twitter: “It is ironic that Senator Grassley now is interested in investigations. He didn’t care when it came to putting a man on the SCOTUS for life. We welcome the investigation as now we can finally get to the bottom of Judge Kavanaugh’s lies and conduct. Let the truth be known.”
