(RNN) – Attorney Michael Avenatti said he's representing a woman who has new sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Avenatti has risen to national fame by representing adult film star Stormy Daniels, who alleges she had an affair with President Donald Trump back in 2006.
On Monday, Avenatti said a still-unnamed client will go public with her allegations against Kavanaugh within 48 hours.
If so, she'll be the third woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, following Christine Blasey Ford, who said Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her when she and Kavanaugh were high school students, and Deborah Ramirez, who said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party while they were both attending Yale University.
Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
When speaking to reporters Monday, Avenatti had this to say about his new client:
In a tweet, Avenatti said his client has worked for the U.S. Department of State, the Department of Justice and the U.S. Mint, and has "been granted multiple security clearances in the past."
Because of his client's background, Avenatti said: "The GOP and others better be very careful in trying to suggest that she is not credible."
Avenatti's timetable of 48 hours means the third accuser could come forward a day before Kavanaugh and Ford testify before a Senate committee to address Ford's allegations.
