People All Over Are Watching, Listening To Blasey Ford-Kavanaugh Hearing

  • Michael Avenatti's claim comes the same night The New Yorker published allegations from Deborah Ramirez

Michael Avenatti has released an explosive declaration from his client Julie Swetnick, who said she was "gang" raped at a party where Brett Kavanaugh was present.

"I also witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could be "gang raped" in a side room or bedroom by a "train" of numerous boys", Swetnick alleged.

Swetnick now resides in Washington, D.C. and works at the U.S. Department of Treasury and states she has had prior clearances at the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and the State Department.

Meanwhile, in written testimony for Thursday's Senate hearing, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh acknowledges drinking in high school with his friends, but says he's never done anything "remotely resembling" the sexual misconduct alleged by his chief accuser.

The other three declarations are from friends of Ford who say that she told them about the assault before Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court.

Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her accusation on Thursday.

Her attorney Michael Avenatti provided a statement from his client to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

According to her statement, Swetnick witnessed Judge and Kavanaugh "being overly aggressive with girls and not taking "No" for an answer". Ramirez's claims, which were reported in the New Yorker, date to her time as an undergraduate at Yale University, when Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her at a party in a college dorm.

Corbyn would back members on second referendum
Aberavon MP Stephen Kinnock warned: "One thing we know a referendum will not do, it will not reunite our country". He has strong support among grassroots members, many of whom have joined since he was elected leader in 2015.

"We demand an immediate FBI investigation into the allegations", Avenatti tweeted this morning. She says she was "unable to fight off the boys raping me" and told two people about it.

Both Kavanaugh and Judge have denied her account.

After Blasey Ford's allegations became public, Judge sent a letter to both Sen. The lawyer, who also represents adult-film actress Stormy Daniels in her battle with Trump over a nondisclosure agreement, was faced with skepticism initially. She describes the pair as "joined at the hip" and says she "consistently saw them together in many social settings".

On Tuesday, the Judiciary Committee has scheduled a vote on whether to recommend Kavanaugh to the full Senate for Friday.

Ford said she first spoke about the alleged assault to a therapist as part of a couple's therapy session with her husband.

The committee chairman, Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, issued a statement Wednesday saying the committee had received the declaration from Avenatti and that committee lawyers were reviewing it.

Additionally, Swetnick details incidents in which Judge, Kavanaugh, and others participated in gang rape - including one incident in which she was the victim. He also claims to have been a virgin in high school.

Kavanaugh is a District of Columbia appeals court judge and served as an advisor to former President George W Bush.
