Attorney Michael Avenatti on Wednesday dropped a new bombshell in the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court case -- a woman who claims Kavanaugh and his social circle were involved in gang rapes.
In a sworn statement posted on Avenatti's Twitter account, witness Julie Swetnick says that she saw Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge target women for sexual assault.
Swetnick, 55, is a resident of Washington, D.C., who has held multiple security clearances for work done in the federal government.
"During the years 1981-82, I became aware of efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others 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,'" Swetnick says in her statement. "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."
Swetnick also says that she herself became a victim of gang rape in 1982 -- and she claims that Kavanaugh and Judge "were present" during the assault. Swetnick says that she told two other people what had happened "shortly after the incident."
"During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me," she says. "I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking."
