NBC News had some vital information regarding Brett Kavanaugh's second accuser that might have helped clear his name, and it all points fingers at attorney Michael Avenatti who allegedly provided a false statement which the second accuser is now disputing.
From what we're reading, it seems like Michael Avenatti had submitted a false report on the second Kavanaugh accuser, then NBC had information from the woman, disputing the report that Avenatti provided, but it seems like NBC sat on it and didn't say anything about how the unnamed accuser was literally disputing what the attorney stated about her.
There's a lot to this, so I'll try to give you the short version. Ashe Schow provided a more in-depth look at it, so I'll summarize. Her link to the full story is below, from the Daily Wire and more info also on MSNBC's website. Of course, MSNBC posted it this week, not when they probably could have the week of Kavanaugh's hearing, because that would have helped prove his story.sponsor

NBC interviewed Swetnick on October 1.
She backtracked on the story and flopped during interviews.
Avenatti released a second sworn statement from an unnamed woman, alleging almost identical claims as Swetnick.

NBC says it spoke to this woman two days before Avenatti released her statement, and didn’t seem to find her credible. The outlet said the woman told NBC a different story than what was presented in the affidavit.
“Referring to Kavanaugh spiking the punch, ‘I didn't ever think it was Brett,’ the woman said to reporters in a phone interview arranged by Avenatti on Sept. 30 after repeated requests to speak with other witnesses who might corroborate Swetnick's claims,” NBC reported Thursday night. “As soon as the call began, the woman said she never met Swetnick in high school and never saw her at parties and had only become friends with her when they were both in their 30s.”
This alleged corroborating witness then told reporters she never witnessed Kavanaugh act inappropriately toward women, but said everyone at these parties drank heavily.
NBC again contacted this woman on October 3, the day Avenatti tweeted out her statement. At this time, she told the media outlet she only “skimmed” the declaration. The next day – October 4 – she texted NBC, saying: "It is incorrect that I saw Brett spike the punch. I didn't see anyone spike the punch ... I was very clear with Michael Avenatti from day one."
And here we are with Michael Avenatti and Julie Swetnick being referred for criminal investigations regarding providing false statements. Chuck Grassley requested the investigation by the FBI in a 12-page letter.
"Grassley said that Swetnick's allegations "materially affected" the committee's investigation and that Kavanaugh "under penalty of a felony" categorically denied the allegations.
Grassley said that Swetnick had contradicted her own allegations in an interview with NBC, and that the committee spoke with "45 individuals, obtained 25 written statements and reviewed numerous other materials" but could not find "any information to corroborate Ms. Swetnick's claims."
"I ask that the FBI investigate whether Mr. Avenatti criminally conspired with Ms. Swetnick to make materially false statements to the Committee," Grassley wrote."
