A Third Woman Has Come Forward With Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh

With less than 24 hours before Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is scheduled to testify, along with his first sexual misconduct accuser, a third woman has stepped forward with new allegations. 

In a sworn declaration posted to Twitter, Julie Swetnick claims that she was at a high school party in 1982 where Brett Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge were in attendance. She claims she was the victim of a gang rape at this party and that her drink, “was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar,” causing her to become disoriented and “unable to fight off the boys raping me,” CBS News reports.

"I also witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be 'gang raped' in a side room or bedroom by a 'train' of numerous boys,” her testimony reads. “These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh."

Attorney Michael Avenatti who is representing Swetnick, was slammed by President Donald Trump in a tweet on Wednesday morning calling him a “third rate lawyer.”

 

Avenatti is also representing Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who is suing President Donald Trump and his lawyer, Michael Cohen for defamation and violation of campaign finance law for paying $130,00 in hush money to the actress for not disclosing her sexual relationship with Donald Trump. Avenatti tweeted that Kavanaugh should not be confirmed without a full and complete investigation. 

 

Kavanaugh's called the allegations from Swetnick, "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone," and appeared on Fox News earlier this week and said, "I've never sexually assaulted anyone."

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told CNBC, the White House “stands with Kavanaugh.” 

Swetnick, who is a 55-year old certified systems engineer revealed she was a resident of Washington, D.C. and has held multiple work clearances at the: Treasury Department, U.S. Mint, IRS, State Department and Justice Department. She stands behind her allegations and is prepared to testify if necessary. 

Avenatti told MSNBC, “My client has been issued a number of security clearances by the federal government over the years. She has been fully vetted time and time again, and she is an honest and courageous woman. And I'm going to caution Donald trump, Brett Kavanaugh, Chairman Grassley and others, if they try to come after my client or engage in some smear campaign, they better pack a lunch because we're going to respond two-fold.”

Kavanaugh will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday morning with a scheduled vote for Friday morning.
