  • Avenatti Claims He Has 'Evidence' That Kavanaugh Targeted Women For Gang Rape

The lawyer Michael Avenatti on Wednesday identified another accuser of Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, Washington resident Julie Swetnick. His release of Swetnick's affidavit to the chief counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee comes a day before Kavanaugh and another woman accusing him of sexual assault are due to testify at that committee.

Kavanaugh also stands accused of exposing himself to a classmate, Deborah Ramirez, causing her to touch him without consent, during an alcohol-fueled Yale University party a few years later. "I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter".

Ford is expected to step before cameras for the first time Thursday to detail the night she says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s.

Kavanaugh will testify Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking", she said in the statement. "I don't know who this is and this never happened".

Swetnick and those witnesses could be called in connection with Johnson's probe.

"I likewise observed him be verbally abusive towards girls by making crude sexual comments to them that were created to demean, humiliate and embarrass them", she said.

Avenatti has said he's representing a client who has levelled allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh, who is the USA president's pick to fill an empty spot on the Supreme Court.

Russian Spy Poisoning Suspect Was "Honoured By Putin"
Britain has said the attack received approval "at a senior level of the Russian state", an accusation Moscow has fiercely denied. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova dismissed the claims, saying they are part of an "information campaign".

In a statement, Kavanaugh said, "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Swetnick said she became the victim "of one of these "gang" or "train" rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present", but does not specifically implicate either men in the rape.

"Fact: (Davis) proactively reached out to Michael Avenatti within ten minutes after he tweeted out his vague and anonymous allegations against Judge Kavanaugh on Sunday night", the release said. "They announced that there were notes and that there had been a lie detector test, but as I understand it they did not turn any of those over to the Senate Committee, even though they were requested".

They have also thrown into chaos what Senate Republicans once thought would be a smooth confirmation process.

From 1981 to 1983, Swetnick said, Kavanaugh and Judge were present at at least 10 house parties that she attended in the Washington area. Swetnick said the two of them did not take "no" for an answer. "I would venture to say that I have a hell of a lot more class than Donald Trump has ever had". "Under no circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full and complete investigation". To this point, Republicans have resisted the idea of an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh's accusers.

Her husband since 2002, Russell Ford, has signed one of four sworn declarations supporting her allegation.

The lawyer also denied being pranked in an interview with CBS.
