Third Kavanaugh accuser steps forward

World

A third woman has come forward accusing Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the early 1980s.

 Julie Swetnick says that in 1981 or 1982 she became aware that Kavanaugh and others would “spike the punch” at house parties with drugs and/or grain alcohol so girls would “lose their inhibitions and their ability to say no.”

 Swetnick says she saw Kavanaugh and a friend get girls drunk “so they could then be gang raped,” going on to say she was the victim of such an assault and that Kavanaugh was present.

 Kavanaugh strongly denied all of the allegations, writing “this is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone” adding that he doesn’t even know Swetnick.

 Swetnick, who holds active government security clearances, is telling her story in a signed declaration written under penalty of perjury.

 “There has to be a full investigation of all the allegations made within this declaration,” said Swetnick’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti.

 These newest allegations were released just one day before Kavanaugh and his first accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, are set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
