A third woman accuses Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault, participating in “gang rapes”
In the era of #MeToo, Bill Cosby is convicted of sexual assault and is given a 3-10 year sentence. Other Hollywood giants like Harvey Weinstein and Les Moonves are also being accused. Now, many are hoping Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, will be face accountability as a third woman accuses him of sexual misconduct.
According to the New York Times, Julie Swetnick is the third woman to allege that Kavanaugh took part in sexual harassment and misconduct at parties when he was a student at Georgetown Preparatory School. In a Twitter statement posted by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, Swetnick states, “I observed Brett Kavanaugh drink excessively at many of these parties and engage in abusive and physically aggressive behavior toward girls, including pressing girls against him without their consent… and attempting to remove or shift girls’ clothing to expose private body parts.”
Below is my correspondence to Mr. Davis of moments ago, together with a sworn declaration from my client. We demand an immediate FBI investigation into the allegations. Under no circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full and complete investigation. pic.twitter.com/QHbHBbbfbE

She also states that she witnessed Kavanaugh and other boys “waiting for their turn” with a girl inside a bedroom, as they all lined up outside. Swetnick states she was raped at one of these parties.
On Monday, Kavanaugh and his wife appeared on Fox News and denied all allegations from two previous women who had accused him of sexual assault.
President Trump also expectedly took to Twitter and accused Avenatti, the lawyer also representing Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who is also suing Trump, of “making false accusations” to get ahead in his career.
However, more than a dozen classmates from Georgetown Prep and nearby schools signed a letter to deny Swetnick’s allegations. The letter addressing the Senate Judiciary Committee, states, “We never witnessed any behavior that even approaches what is described in this allegation. It is reprehensible.”
Despite the signed letter, Avenatti says he has other witnesses who are willing to publicly corroborate Swetnick’s accusations. However, he is waiting for the Senate Judiciary Committee and F.B.I to investigate her claims.
