Third Woman Accuses Kavanaugh of Inappropriate Behavior Ahead of Senate Hearing

Third Woman Accuses Kavanaugh of Inappropriate Behavior Ahead of Senate Hearing

Two other friends of Ford's say that she told them a similar story - one in 2016 and one in 2017.

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual misconduct by two other women, putting his nomination for the high court at risk.

"For Donald Trump to call me a lowlife, he knows nothing about me, knows nothing about the last 20 years of my practice", Avenatti told MSNBC's Ari Melber. "I've always treated women with dignity and respect", he said. Why was she, an adult, attending high-school parties with minors?

Judge Kavanaugh also rejected a claim by a unnamed woman in Colorado who said her daughter observed Judge Kavanaugh, as a lawyer in the late 1990s, push a girl up against a wall "aggressively and sexually". She also did not specifically accuse Kavanaugh or Judge of raping her, or physically assaulting her in any way, in her declaration. Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegations against him.

She's "remaining strong", the lawyer said. "This conduct included the fondling and grabbing of girls without their consent", Julie Swetnick said in an affidavit.

She says this was done so the girls could be gang-raped, and Swetnick says she was one of the victims of a rape where Kavanaugh and the friend were present.

"During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me", Swetnick says.

Swetnick alleges that a "train" of boys would lure girls into bedrooms to be "gang raped", and that she recalls seeing Kavanaugh and Judge in line in the "train" of boys waiting to assault girls.

Swetnick is now the third woman to come forward with sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.




George Hartmann, a spokesman for Republicans on the Judiciary Committee, said the hearing is still going forward Thursday as scheduled. Ramirez alleged that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while they were freshmen at Yale University.

Kavanaugh denied her allegations in a statement released by the White House.

Brett Kavanaugh is a good man.

Avenatti also posted a picture Swetnick, calling her "courageous, fearless and honest" and asking people to respect her privacy.

"Judge Kavanaugh is being considered for a promotion".

They have also thrown into chaos what Senate Republicans once thought would be a smooth confirmation process. "If he will not, at the very least, the hearing and vote should be postponed while the FBI investigates all of these allegations".

Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley reiterated on Twitter that the allegations against Kavanaugh and other leads were being investigated by his committee staff, as well as agents detailed from the Bureau of Alcoholic, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. "Because, from what I experienced first -hand, I don't think he belongs on the Supreme Court".

"There has been a frenzy to come up with something - anything, no matter how far-fetched or odious - that will block a vote on my nomination", Kavanaugh says, in the testimony released by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
