3rd woman accuses Kavanaugh of misconduct
Washington, September 26
In another explosive accusation, a third woman came forward on Wednesday to charge Donald Trump’s supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with sexual misconduct, alleging that she was gang-raped at a party he attended in the early 1980s.
Julie Swetnick, in a statement released by her lawyer, said the events took place at parties she attended while a high school student in suburban Maryland. She alleged Kavanaugh and others while in high school spiked the drinks of girls at parties with intoxicants to make it easier for them to be gang raped.
Swetnick’s statement was released by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, who has claimed to have had a sexual encounter with Trump. Her stunning claims are made on the eve of scheduled testimony before a Senate Committee by Kavanaugh and his first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. Kavanaugh on Wednesday once again rejected the allegations as “last-minute smears” that were “false and uncorroborated”. “This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don’t know who this is and this never happened,” Kavanaugh said.
