Avenatti’s revenge attack on Tucker: Video of ‘bar altercation’ at country club doesn’t tell whole story

The “creepy porn lawyer” who tried to derail Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation last month has returned with a new set of sensational allegations, these ones aimed at his longtime nemesis, Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

In a series of bizarre tweets posted early Saturday morning, “creepy porn lawyer” Michael Avenatti accused Carlson of assaulting a “gay Latino immigrant” at some country club last month. As “evidence,” he posted the following video that simply shows Carlson telling a man at the club to leave.

Watch:

“We are investigating an alleged assault on a gay latino immigrant committed by T. Carlson and/or members of his inner circle at a club in VA in Oct,” Avenatti tweeted. “It likely includes underage drinking in violation of VA law.”

“We are attempting to locate additional witnesses and to identify those depicted in the video. In particular, we need assistance identifying the balding man that grabs the man seated at the bar. We anticipate charges being filed. Anyone with knowledge, pls contact us.”

Look:

According to Carlson, this narrative trotted out by Avenatti is a complete lie. In a lengthy statement to The Hill, he said that the incident seen in the video occurred at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month after the “gay Latino immigrant” harassed his 19-year-old daughter.

“On October 13, I had dinner with two of my children and some family friends at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia,” he said. “Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson.”

When she answered yes, Avenatti’s client asked her “Are you Tucker’s wh-re?” and then called her a “f–king c-unt,” echoing the profane language made popular by left-wing heroes like Samantha Bee.

“My daughter returned to the table in tears,” Carlson’s statement continues. “She soon left the table and the club. My son, who is also a student, went into the bar to confront the man. I followed.”

“My son asked the man if he’d called his sister a ‘wh-re’ and a ‘c-nt.’ The man admitted he had, and again become profane. My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face and told him to leave the bar, which he soon did.”

Afterward Carlson reportedly informed the club’s management about the incident. Following a three week investigation, the club revoked the abusive man’s membership just last week.

The Fox News host concluded his statement by admitting that “(i)t took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what I wanted to do.”

“I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger. But I restrained myself. I did not assault this man, and neither did my son. That is a lie. Nor did I know the man was gay or Latino, not that it would have mattered. What happened on October 13 has nothing to do with identity politics. It was a grotesque violation of decency. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.”

Avenatti responded to this statement Saturday evening with another series of bombastic tweets:

While this may seem like a case of he-said, she-said, the initial evidence weighs heavily against Avenatti. Last month the Senate Judiciary Committee referred both him and his previous client, Julie Swetnick, to the Justice Department for a criminal investigation on the grounds that they had made false statements about Kavanaugh.

And a Senate report published at he start of this month further accused Avenatti and his client of criminally conspiring against Kavanaugh to derail his confirmation and prevent him from obtaining a seat on the Supreme Court.

This evidence brings to mind the pithy proverb, once a liar, always a liar.

Observe social media’s reaction below:

Avenatti’s track record also includes losing a defamation suit he had filed against President Donald Trump on behalf of porn star Stormy Daniels and reportedly being a tax cheat.

According to Townhall, sometime Saturday evening the “creepy porn lawyer” shared “screen captures of statement witnesses” to Twitter. But by Sunday morning those screenshots had been deleted, suggesting that his alleged witness statements were as fraudulent as is much in his entire career.
