Julie Swetnick Told NBC Her Brett Kavanaugh Story, and She Has Serious Credibility Issues - Hit & Run : Reason.com

"That is not happening with the Kavanaugh coverage", he said.

In an unprecedented move, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday released an explicit statement that purports to describe the sexual preferences of a woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh of misconduct. I saw him go up to girls and paw on them, try to, you know, get a little too handsy, touching them in private parts. He said he lost her number, so he called her father, who told him she had "psychological and other problems" at that time.

Swetnick claimed in a previous sworn declaration that she witnessed Kavanaugh and Judge drugging and gang-raping girls at parties in the early 1980s when they were high schoolers at Georgetown Preparatory Academy. In her sworn written statement, Swetnick claimed Kavanaugh would spike girls' drinks-and yet, in her interview with Snow, Swetnick merely claimed that she saw Kavanaugh near the punch bowl. The woman, whose name was redacted in the document Avenatti posted, said she "witnessed firsthand Kavanaugh and others spike the punch at house parties with quaaludes and/or grain alcohol". "Please respond to our requests". However, NBC News's Kate Snow noticed that Swetnick changed her story during an interview with MSNBC.

"Right after I broke up with her, she basically called me many times and at one point, she basically said, you will never, ever see your unborn child alive and I'm just going to go over there and kill you guys", he claimed. "My soul was broken".

"I felt she only had interest. because I was on television and well-known", he said. And if we can't confirm it, we tell you. "You are disposable, '" she told Snow.

Ketterer goes on to say Swetnick never told him of any sexual assault or gang rape, nor mentioned Kavanaugh.

Swetnick said she would often see Kavanaugh hanging around in groups of boys outside bedrooms at these parties, laughing and joking together.

The interview comes as the White House makes a shift telling the FBI to talk to anyone they need to but the investigation still must be completed by the end of this week.

"My client Julie Swetnick is demanding an immediate FBI investigation and the opportunity to testify under oath before the Committee", Avenatti tweeted Thursday. Testing - and reporting on - the credibility of Swetnick's claims are part of what the nation needs to weigh in deciding on his suitability for the court.

He said in a letter to senators that she picked him up at a bar, not caring that he was married, and they grew close - though stopped short of sex after he learned of her fondness for "sex with more than one guy at a time". The suit, filed in Portland, Oregon in November, 2000, was dismissed with prejudice a month later. In addition, an ex-boyfriend petitioned for a restraining order against Swetnick in 2001, accusing her of threatening his family. So far, President Trump has not asked the agency to look into Swetnick's story. He also said that although they dated on-and-off for seven years, she never mentioned her Kavanaugh claims to him, and was known for wanting to be the center of attention.

"The letter from Dennis Ketterer is garbage, the GOP is desperate", Swetnick's attorney Michael Avenatti said, calling for anyone found to be making such statements to be "prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law".
