New accuser says she witnessed sexual abuses by Kavanaugh

A new woman has claimed to have witnessed sexually abusive behavior by Brett Kavanaugh and said she was gang-raped at a party in the early 1980s attended by the Supreme Court nominee. Julie Swetnick said in a statement released by her lawyer that the events took place at parties she attended while a high school student in suburban Maryland. She said she saw Kavanaugh “drink excessively” and “engage in abusive and physically aggressive behavior towards girls” that included “fondling and grabbing of girls without their consent”. Swetnick also said that she was raped at a party in approximately 1982 at which Kavanaugh was present. Swetnick’s statement was released by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, who has claimed to have had a sexual encounter with Donald Trump.

President Donald Trump has said he could withdraw his support for Brett Kavanaugh depending on the testimony in a high-profile hearing into multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court nominee.

Trump defended Kavanaugh, now a federal appeals court judge, at a New York news conference, but the president’s comments injected another note of uncertainty into Kavanaugh’s already troubled bid for a lifetime appointment to the nation’s highest court.

“You know, believe it or not, I’m going to see what’s said” at the hearing, Trump told reporters.

A third woman has accused Kavanaugh of aggressive sexual behavior in the 1980s. The nominee has vehemently denied all of the allegations ahead of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing coming up where one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, will also testify to senators. Trump dismissed the allegations against Kavanaugh as a “big fat con job” orchestrated by Democrats. He did not say that Kavanaugh’s female accusers were lying. “I can always be convinced,” Trump said. “It will be interesting to hear what she has to say.”
