Attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted Wednesday that an as-yet unnamed woman has come forward to corroborate his client’s allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, urging the FBI to look into their claims.
Julie Swetnick, who is Kavanaugh’s third accuser, alleged that he and other boys spiked the drinks of girls during high school parties with the purpose of raping them.
> Avenatti’s tweet includes screenshots of emails he sent Senate Judiciary Committee staff urging them to arrange an FBI interview with Swetnick, and the scanned pages of a declaration from another unnamed witness, who says she believes Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Julie Swetnick are “honest and truthful,” and that she saw Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, drink to excess, spike drinks, and be “overly aggressive and verbally abusive towards girls.”
> “I have seen Brett Kavanaugh’s recent interview on Fox News regarding his alleged ‘choir boy’ existence during his high school years and lack of sexual activity. The claim is absolutely false and a lie based on what I observed firsthand. It is also laughable.”
The woman claimed, as did Swetnick, that the nominee and other boys spiked girls’ drinks during their high school house parties:
> She said that during the years of 1981–2, she “witnessed firsthand” Kavanaugh and others “spike” the “punch” at the house parties they attended with “Quaaludes and/or grain alcohol.”
> “I understood this was being done for the purpose of making girls more likely to engage in sexual acts and less likely to say ‘No,’” she wrote. She added that she knew other witnesses who could testify to these facts.
Kavanaugh has firmly denied the allegations, calling Swetnick’s claims “ridiculous” and from “the Twilight Zone.”
