Senate panel receives new Kavanaugh allegations

Senate panel receives new Kavanaugh allegations

She is courageous, fearless and honest. Mitchell comes from the Maricopa County Attorney's Office in Phoenix, where she is the chief of the Special Victims Division, which covers sex crimes and family violence.

Swetnick, 55, said these efforts by Kavanaugh and his buddy Mark Judge were done so the girls "could then be "gang raped" in a side room or bedroom by a "train" of numerous boys".

She claimed that boys at these parties used this technique to "gang rape" a drunk woman at the party with a "train" of men waiting in the hallway to have their turn.

"Dr. Ford's allegation dates back more than 36 years, to a party that she says occurred during our time in high school". Shortly after the incident, I shared what had transpired with at least two other people.

Swetnick said Kavanaugh's claim of "innocence" and lack of sexual activity in high school was "absolutely false and a lie".

Swetnick now resides in Washington, D.C. and works at the U.S. Department of Treasury and states she has had prior clearances at the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and the State Department. "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone". His answer: Republicans are impressed by the judge and don't know the accusers and "I think that goes to his advantage".

Trump lashed out at Avenatti on Twitter.

During a news conference Wednesday at the United Nations in New York City, Trump referred to Avenatti as a "low-life."

"You don't get much worse", the president said of the California lawyer. We demand an immediate FBI investigation into the allegations.

At the end of his remarks, the president ranted against Democrats for playing a "con game" with Kavanaugh's nomination. "He is asking for a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court where he will have the opportunity to rule on matters that will impact Americans for decades", they wrote in a statement Wednesday.




Hanging in the balance is Trump's chance to swing the high court more firmly to the right for a generation. There has been a frenzy to come up with something-anything, no matter how far-fetched or odious-that will block a vote on my nomination.

Lawyers for the Senate panel were reviewing it Wednesday morning, committee spokesman Taylor Foy said. John Cornyn, R-Texas, the GOP whip and a member of the Judiciary Committee, "as soon as she can arrange to talk to the staff".

Swetnick said she was aware of other witnesses who could attest to the truthfulness of her entire declaration.

CNN and the Associated Press have not yet been able to corroborate Swetnick's story. He included emails he exchanged with Grassley's staff this week.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

While the green and white calendar detailing a summer from Kavanaugh's youth is filled with innocent memories, it now will have a serious use: attempting to prove his innocence against sexual assault allegations lodged against him amid a bid for the Supreme Court.

Lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of a sexual assault in 1982, released signed documents from Ford's husband, Russell Ford, and three friends, seeking to offer corroboration for her account. Christine Blasey Ford drew on her training as a psychologist.

Kavanaugh has staunchly denied that he ever sexually assaulted anyone. The four sworn affidavits are among the information the committee is considering on the eve of Ford and Kavanaugh's testimony Thursday.

Swetnick's declaration also mentions Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh's from high school who has been drawn into the controversy.
