Senate GOPers Grapple With New Kavanaugh Allegation On Eve Of Hearing

National Security lawyer Bradley P. Moss tweeted that he had "no idea" if Swetnick is telling the truth, but noted that submitted a sworn affidavit carries with it "criminal liability" if she perjured herself. She said this included fondling without consent.
"Swetnick, who attended high school in Gaithersburg, Md.at the same time as Kavanaugh, says in a declaration posted by Avenatti that Kavanaugh, his friend Mark Judge, and others, in 1981-1982 used to "'spike" the "punch" at house parties I attended with drugs and/or grain alcohol so as to cause girls to lose their inhibitions and their ability to say "No'".
Kavanaugh is denying the new allegations, saying they're from the "Twilight Zone". It was released this morning by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, whose name you will recognize because he is also Stormy Daniels's lawyer (and is widely believed to be eyeing a presidential run in 2020).
"I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside of rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room".
Ford, a California college professor, says that Kavanaugh was drunk at the house party in about 1982, and that he pulled her into a bedroom then pinned her down on a bed, tried to remove her clothes and put his hand over her mouth to stop her from screaming.

But she indicated that she couldn't comment on the complaint or an investigation that Yale is conducting on the matter. I understand that some students want to go to D.C.to protest or otherwise engage with the Kavanaugh hearings.
Swetnick, who has worked extensively for the United States federal government, also said she was drugged and gang-raped at a party in approximately 1982 at which Kavanaugh was present. On Wednesday, Avenatti released an explosive letter which he sent to Mike Davis, the Chief Counsel for Nominations on the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary.
In the face of the new allegations against Kavanaugh, the Democrats of the Senate Judiciary Committee have called on Trump to either withdraw Kavanaugh's nomination or to direct the FBI to reopen an investigation into his background.
"What's important here isn't the lawyer, what's important here is the person who claims she's been harmed", Grassley said.
Swetnick does not say Kavanaugh participated in the alleged rape or what, if any, role he played, nor does she say where the alleged episode took place. (Watch it here.) In that interview, Kavanaugh responded to all kinds of questions with the same prepared phrase about wanting "a fair process", to the extent that he nearly came across like a robot in meltdown.
Flake, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, also said warned that his fellow panel members may "have to be prepared for the possibility, indeed the likelihood, that there will be no definitive answers to the very large questions before us" following Thursday's hearing. Committee investigators specifically asked Judge Kavanaugh about all pending accusations, in specificity. "I witnessed Brett Kavanaugh consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early 1980s", she said. "There should be no rush to confirm" and a delay of a week or a month to allow for an FBI investigation "would be of no effect". Ramirez alleged that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while they were freshmen at Yale University. For the same reason the GOP scheduled a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation for just hours after the testimony of first accuser Christine Blasey Ford on Thursday.
