These are the key players to know before Super Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh addresses the multiple sexual assault allegations against him.
Attorney Michael Avenatti on Wednesday named Julie Swetnick as his client who has made allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
In an explosive signed statement released by Avenatti, Swetnick said in the 1980s, she witnessed efforts by Kavanaugh and Mark Judge to get teenage girls “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,” she said in the statement. “These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh.”
Swetnick, a resident of Washington, D.C., said she was a graduate of Gaithersburg High School in Maryland. She had worked for several government agencies, including the U.S. Mint and the State Department, and had held security clearances, she said.
Avenatti called for an FBI investigation into Swetnick’s allegations.
“Under no circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full and complete investigation,” he said.
Avenatti also said he is still waiting for a response from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, over Swetnick’s allegations about Kavanaugh. The committee is hearing testimony Thursday from Kavanaugh and another accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who says she was assaulted by him while they were both in high school.
