Brett Kavanaugh: allegations of misconduct continue to mount

It was released this morning by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, whose name you will recognize because he is also Stormy Daniels's lawyer (and is widely believed to be eyeing a presidential run in 2020).

Her claims come on the eve of another Kavanaugh accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify that the SCOTUS nominee allegedly held her down and grinded on her during another high school party in the 1980s.

Swetnick said she became the victim "of one of these "gang" or "train" rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present", but does not specifically implicate either men in the rape.

In the document, Swetnick said she attended numerous house parties "between 1981-1893 where Kavanaugh and Judge were present".

To be clear, Swetnick is not accusing Kavanaugh of assaulting her personally.

"I have reviewed Brett Kavanaugh's recent claim on Fox News regarding his alleged "innocence" during his high school years and lack of sexual activity".

Reuters was not immediately able to verify the substance of the woman's allegation. In 2012 during a couples therapy session, he says, she revealed that in high school she had been "trapped in a room and physically restrained by one boy who was molesting her while another boy watched". He added Swetnick would be willing to testify before the Senate after the FBI conducted a full investigation. This makes her the third woman to do so and comes just ahead of Thursday's Senate hearing.

Committee spokesman Taylor Foy said Avenatti provided Swetnick's signed declaration on Wednesday.


The words "Brett Kavanaugh Must Withdraw" are projected by demonstrators onto the E. Barrett Prettyman United States Courthouse in Washington, DC. But he has previously denied ever acting inappropriately with any woman.

"Brett Kavanaugh is going for a seat where he's going to have that seat on the Supreme Court for the rest of his life", said Swetnick.

Julie Swetnick said in her first interview that she doesn't think Brett Kavanaugh should be on the Supreme Court.

Trump tweeted late last week that Ford specifically wasn't being truthful because she stayed silent for so long.

The Judiciary Committee has scheduled a vote on Kavanaugh for Friday, just a day after the hearing, though it has said it might be delayed.

She said: "They seemed to be having a very good time".

Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) said Wednesday that he has about 20 staff members talking to witnesses and gathering evidence, including federal agents on detail from Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives. "I want to know who drafted it". Swetnick also implies that Kavanaugh and Judge participated in the assaults themselves. "The standard of character and fitness for a position on the nation's highest court must be higher than this".
