Toobin Shreds ‘Publicity Seeking’ Avenatti: ‘Irresponsible’ Kavanaugh Claim is ‘Garbage’

  • In a statement released by Avenatti Swetnick said she witnessed efforts by Kavanaugh and Mark Judge to get teenage girls inebriated disoriented

Another woman has come forward to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, alleging she witnessed Kavanaugh and Mark Judge grope girls without their consent during house parties in the early 1980s.

Reuters was not immediately able to verify the substance of the woman's allegation.

Avenatti said the Republicans on the Judiciary were working hard to stifle any new information abut Kavanaugh.

The most explosive of Swetnick's allegations, though, is a claim that she witnessed efforts by Judge, Kavanaugh "and others to "target" particular girls" using spiked punch "so they could be taken advantage of".

A high school friend of Kavanaugh's, Judge has been absent from his Maryland residence for days as Democratic lawmakers and accuser Christine Blasey Ford have demanded that Republicans summon him before the Senate Judiciary Committee to answer questions under oath. The New Yorker magazine quoted Deborah Ramirez as saying Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a dormitory party that involved drinking when they both were Yale University freshmen.

Kavanaugh was asked about Avenatti's claims on Fox News Monday night where he denied the allegations and revealed he was a virgin throughout high school and for "many years after". "There is no excuse, no excuse for the committee and for Brett Kavanaugh not calling Mark Judge to testify for the committee".


She said that other witnesses could verify the truthfulness of her statements.

Kavanaugh's approval was only two weeks ago considered a done deal, with all Republicans in the narrowly divided Senate appearing set to back him. And he added that she has evidence Kavanaugh and Judge "would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs", and will "be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee and will likewise be demanding that Judge and others be subpoenaed to testify".

Prior to the walkout, dozens of rights groups held a protest in the Senate office buildings, as well as outside the Supreme Court.

Here's an Avenatti tweet, because I guess that's how we do things now.

Kavanaugh denied the story, calling it "a smear, plain and simple". She kept them a secret, until after Kavanaugh's public hearing and after lengthy meetings with Judge Kavanaugh. She alleged Kavanaugh and his friends "spiked" the drinks of girls at house parties.
