Attorney Michael Avenatti is demanding that the Kavanaugh nomination be withdrawn after he announced that he is representing a second woman who has information on Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.
I represent a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge. We will be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee and will likewise be demanding that Judge and others be subpoenaed to testify. The nomination must be withdrawn.

Michael Avenatti Wants His Client To Testify At Kavanaugh Sexual Assault Hearing
If a second woman is set to come forward with information about Kavanaugh and Judge it destroys the Republican plan to rush the Kavanaugh nomination through the confirmation process by turning Thursday’s Christine Blasey Ford hearing into a he said/she said dispute. Earlier on Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) claimed that he could not vote against Kavanaugh because there was no corroborating evidence that the Supreme Court nominee committee sexual assault.
The corroborating evidence may have just arrived.
The Kavanaugh nomination could be going down in real time before the eyes of an entire country.
Michael Avenatti has a client who wants to talk, and when his client comes forward, that could be the end for the Republican dream of getting Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.
