Jewish Woman Accuses Kavanaugh Of Sexual Misconduct In High School

Kavanaugh's reputation took another hit over the weekend when the New Yorker reported that a second woman had come forward to claim she the victim of sexual misconduct by the judge.

The unconfirmed allegation was made public on the eve of the long-awaited hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee involving Kavanaugh and another accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, a California college professor.

Another woman, Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale University classmate, has said that the nominee once exposed himself to her at a dormitory party in the 1980s. "I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter".

Judge is an author and journalist who was accused of sexual assault by the first woman to come forward with claims against Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh categorically denied Swetnick's claims.

She says she was the victim of a gang rape in 1982 at a party attended by the judge. Judge, who Ford said was present at the time of the assault, said in a letter sent to the Judiciary Committee by his lawyer that he had "no memory of this alleged incident". "These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh", she added.

"During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me", Swetnick states.

Avenatti posted an affidavit from Swetnick on his Twitter account Wednesday. She said that Kavanaugh in particular engaged in "abusive and physically aggressive behavior towards girls".

Avenatti had for several days said he had a client, until now unnamed, who had been aware of gang rapes connected to Kavanaugh.

The White House had no immediate comment on the allegations by Swetnick.

"I think it's frightful what the Democrats have done - it's a con game, they really are con artists", he said. In it, she describes meeting Kavanaugh and Mark Judge-friends so close they were "joined at the hip"-around 1980 or 1981 at a Washington, DC, house party and interacting with the two frequently during the early '80s, including at "well over 10" house parties". So will his chief accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who said he sexually assaulted her in high school.

Another committee spokesman, Taylor Foy, said the panel received Swetnick's declaration on Wednesday and "committee lawyers are in the process of reviewing it now". Swetnick's claims were released via affidavit to a Senate staffer by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti; see the documents, which she signed under penalty of perjury, below.

A vote on confirmation in the full Senate could happen as early as October 2, according to senior Senate Republicans.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is a "high quality person", President Donald Trump said at a United Nations presser this afternoon.

Avenatti is demanding an FBI investigation into his client's accusations.

Ford came public with her allegations against Kavanaugh on September 16, after Sen.
