Avenatti reveals third Kavanaugh accuser — a witness and victim of alleged gang rape

Published

on

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.”

Right-wing activists call on Mitch McConnell to stop blocking election security bills

Published

on

On Wednesday, CNN reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is facing renewed pressure to take up election security legislation, from a pair of unlikely sources: Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist, and FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon.

Norquist — who once famously said that he wanted to slash government to a size where he could "drown it in a bathtub" — called for hand-marked paper ballots, and urged Congress to pass something similar to the bipartisan Secure Elections Act, which would have given states incentives to switch to secure voting methods and promoted data-sharing to identify threats. The measure was first introduced in 2017 by Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), James Lankford (D-OK), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), but never came to a vote.

Published

On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that the source of the whistleblower complaint currently being suppressed by the Director of National Intelligence is a phone conversation between President Donald Trump and a foreign leader.

According to the report, the whistleblower became aware that the president made a "promise" to this unspecified foreign leader, and was so disturbed by the nature of that promise that he or she filed a complaint through channels set up to help whistleblower claims involving classified information.
