A woman has submitted a sworn declaration to the Senate Judiciary Committee stating Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was present at a high school party where she says was gang raped in 1982, according to her lawyer.
In the declaration, Julie Swetnick, who is being represented by Michael Avenatti, says the claim Kavanaugh made on Fox News about being sexually inexperienced is “absolutely false and a lie.”
From the declaration:
I also 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. 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. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh.
In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these “gang” or “train” rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present. Shortly after the incident, I shared what had transpired with at least two other people. During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me. I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking.
Elsewhere in the declaration, Swetnick describes Kavanaugh as a “mean drunk” who was verbally and physically aggressive toward girls at several parties she attended in the Washington, DC-area between 1981 and 1983.
Swetnick also says she witnessed Kavanaugh’s alleged behavior during “Beach Week” in Ocean City, Maryland, an event which is featured prominently on the calendar Kavanaugh submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Avenatti tweeted Swetnick’s declaration in full while accusing Mike Davis, the chief counsel on nominations for the Senate Judiciary Committee, of ignoring his calls for an investigation.
Swetnick is the third woman to go public about Kavanaugh’s alleged history of sexual misconduct.
