Third woman accuses Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

Third woman accuses Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

The nation took a collective time out Thursday to watch Dr. Ford's testimony.

Swetnick's attorney Michael Avenatti, however, called Vineccy's statement "complete nonsense".

Julie Swetnick has accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Speaking under penalty of felony to Judiciary Committee investigators, Kavanaugh denied the allegations.

Swetnick, who made her allegations in a sworn deposition, is represented by Michael Avenatti, the brash attorney best known for helping porn star Stephanie Clifford, a.k.a. But he has previously denied ever acting inappropriately with any woman. In a declaration, she wrote that boys at the parties spiked the punch to get girls drunk "so they could then be "gang raped" in a side room or bedroom by a "train" of numerous boys". Swetnick does not claim in her declaration that there are other witnesses who can attest to any role of Brett Kavanaugh in gang rape.

She said she wants the American people to judge for themselves. In a calendar submitted by Kavanaugh's team as evidence, there is a "Beach Week" clearly marked. Ford, the first woman to accuse Kavanaugh of assault, alleged that Judge was present for that incident.

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone", Judge Kavanaugh said in a statement shared by the White House on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump did not address Swetnick's allegations, but he did knock her lawyer, Avenatti, in a tweet Wednesday afternoon. (Watch it here.) In that interview, Kavanaugh responded to all kinds of questions with the same prepared phrase about wanting "a fair process", to the extent that he nearly came across like a robot in meltdown.

Who is Julie Swetnick? According to the New York Times, Swetnick graduated "from Gaithersburg High School in 1980 before attending college at the University of Maryland". This is the third sexual assault or misconduct allegation against the judge.

She's had tax problems, at one point owing more than $100,000 to the government.

In Wednesday's affidavit, she notes that she now holds "active clearances" for her work with the U.S. Department of Treasure, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and U.S. Mint. She said that she has inactive clearances at the State Department, the Department of Justice, Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection. She worked in systems engineering and as a Web master.

There is now only one "fair path" forward: Kavanaugh withdraws. He also called the claims a "con game" by Democrats.

Trump has repeatedly questioned why Professor Ford had not reported the crimes earlier and branded the whole situation a "big fat con".

Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, another member of the Judiciary Committee, said he still expects the committee to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination on Friday.

"My client deserves the right to be placed under oath and testify", he urged, including an email sent to Judiciary Committee chief counsel Mike Davis. Women's March, for instance, created cancelkavanaugh.com as a resource for those who want to make their voices heard.

The news comes a day before Kavanaugh and his original accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, appear before a senate hearing. Violence against women should have no place in our society and it certainly should have no place on the highest court in the nation.
