Sen. Bill Cassidy (R., La.) tweeted on Tuesday that a "criminal referral should be sent to the FBI" after Julie Swetnick backtracked on some allegations she levied against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in a sworn statement.
Swetnick's attorney, Michael Avenatti, provided the Senate with her sworn statement in which she alleged Kavanaugh was complicit in "gang rape" parties in the 1980s. Swetnick, however, appeared to backtrack on some of her initial claims in an interview with NBC on Monday night.
"A criminal referral should be sent to the FBI/DOJ regarding the apparently false affidavit signed by Julie Swetnick that was submitted to the Senate by @MichaelAvenatti," Cassidy tweeted.
