Third Woman Accuses Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh of Sexual Misconduct and Participating in Setting Up ‘Gang Rapes’ at House Parties

A third woman has come forward to accuse President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh, of sexual misconduct, according to a statement published on Wednesday by her lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Avenatti tweeted a declaration made in the name of Julie Swetnick, a resident of Washington, DC, which said she had met Kavanaugh and his school friend Mark Judge in the early 1980s and attended the same parties.

The declaration said she had “observed Brett Kavanaugh drink excessively at these parties and engage in abusive and physically aggressive behavior towards girls, including pressing girls against him without their consent, ‘grinding’ against girls and attempting to remove or shift girls clothing to expose private body parts.”

Swetnick said she was at parties where Kavanaugh, and his close friend at the time, Mark Judge, were involved in situations that resulted in women being gang raped.

“I 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 …”

“In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these ‘gang’ or ‘train’ rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present.”

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual misconduct by two other women. He denies the allegations.

Swetnick declares that she is a graduate of Gaithersburg High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and that she currently holds government security clearances “associated with working within the federal government,” involving the US Department of Treasury, the US Mint and the Internal Revenue Service. She says she previously held clearances with the departments of state, justice, homeland security and customs and border protection.

Swetnick says she met Kavanaugh and a friend of his, Judge, whom Kavanaugh’s original accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, says was the third person in the room when the Supreme Court nominee attempted to rape her when they were in high school – which both Kavanaugh and Judge have denied.

But she said in her statement that: “There is no question in my mind that Mark Judge has significant information concerning the conduct of Brett Kavanaugh during the 1980s, especially as it relates to his actions towards women.”
