Avenatti Says New Kavanaugh Accuser is Prepared to Testify that He Participated in the 'Targeting of Women with Alcohol'

"I don't know who this is and this never happened", Kavanaugh said. She is courageous, fearless and honest. The behavior included grabbing girls and fondling them without their consent, she alleged.

Swetnick, who attended Gaithersburg High School in Maryland, says she attended "well over ten" parties where Kavanaugh was present. Michael Avenatti, Stormy Daniels' lawyer and purportedly a Democratic presidential candidate, has unveiled accuser number three, Julie Swetnick.

Attorney Michael Avenatti revealed the identity of the third woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, Julie Swetnick, whom he referred to as "courageous, fearless and honest". "She says it was known that Judge, Kavanaugh, and others would spike the punch at these parties with grain alcohol or drugs in order to make girls inebriated, and that the boys, including Kavanaugh, would "'target' particular girls so they could be taken advantage of; it was usually a girl that was especially vulnerable because she was alone at the party or shy". "These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh", she said.

"I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room", she says.

Swetnick also said that she was raped at a party in approximately 1982 at which Kavanaugh was present.

Kavanaugh has passed six background checks and there is no indication that this allegation against him-or any like it-has never come up to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. She says that he and his friend Mark Judge would "target" a vulnerable girl, get her drunk, and then pull her into a side bedroom where they could have sex with her. In her sworn affidavit, she said there are multiple other people who can corroborate her story. The subcommittee would have authority to subpoena witnesses, documents, and emails related to Kavanaugh. "How many women need to come forward with credible allegations before Senate Republicans and Donald Trump will acknowledge that Brett Kavanaugh is a sexual predator and a liar?.This entire confirmation process has been a case study in Republicans' misogyny and disregard for the truth".

The terms of the Thursday hearing were set after after days-long negotiations between Ford's attorneys and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa. Committee investigators specifically asked Judge Kavanaugh about all pending accusations, in specificity.

While Republicans have suggested that the recent spate of allegations against Kavanaugh are politically motivated and created to prevent him from being confirmed to the Supreme Court, Democrats have said they favor an FBI investigation into the accusations before Kavanaugh can be confirmed - something which Republicans say is just a delay tactic. "There should be no rush to confirm" and a delay of a week or a month to allow for an FBI investigation "would be of no outcome".

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied that he ever sexually assaulted anyone.

Kavanaugh's history as a high school and college student has become increasingly relevant to his nomination to the Supreme Court in light of accusations of sexual assault by two women, Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez.

More than a week ago, a lawyer and friend of Debra Katz, who is representing Christine Blasey Ford, emailed dozens of women who attended a local D.C. high school at the same time as Kavanaugh, seeking information on misconduct by Kavanaugh "regardless of when it occurred".
