Avenatti: Senate committee says it wants to meet with new Kavanaugh accuser

Avenatti: Senate committee says it wants to meet with new Kavanaugh accuser

President Donald Trump did not address Swetnick's allegations, but he did knock her lawyer, Avenatti, in a tweet Wednesday afternoon.

I also witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be "gang raped" in a side room or bedroom by a "train" of numerous boys.

"These allegations and corroborating accounts of criminal conduct by Judge Kavanaugh are incredibly disturbing", Healey said. "I've never done any such thing, known about any such thing", the judge said in response to the question.

In Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow's New Yorker article detailing the allegations of Ramirez on Sunday, the journalists reported that the ex-girlfriend had "recalled that Judge had told her ashamedly of an incident that involved him and other boys taking turns having sex with a drunk woman". Did high school students from Georgetown Prep like Kavanaugh frequently attend parties with University of Maryland college students like Swetnick in the early 1980s?

Credibility will be at the center of hearings scheduled for today at which Kavanaugh will testify as will Christine Blasey Ford who has accused him of sexual misconduct while both were in high school. In 2012 during a couples therapy session, he says, she revealed that in high school she had been "trapped in a room and physically restrained by one boy who was molesting her while another boy watched".

Judge's alleged story and and Swetnick's accusations are putting renewed pressure on Senate Republicans to call for an FBI investigation into the claims and to subpoena Judge to testify before the committee.

Kavanaugh faces a crucial Senate hearing Thursday where he will seek to rebut sexual misconduct claims from women.

Meanwhile, the EU has vowed to stick with the deal and updated legislation to protect European companies from future sanctions. He stressed that if US President Donald Trump wants to talk to Iran, he first must return to the 2015 nuclear deal .

"Swetnick alleged she had attended parties where Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge would spike girls" drinks to make it easier for them to be gangraped.

The claims by Swetnick have been scrutinized by conservative commentators and publications, that pointed to what appears to be several odd moments or discrepancies in her sworn affidavit, posted by Avenatti on Twitter Wednesday.

NBC News has not independently verified the accusations, and they were firmly denied by Kavanaugh.

Julie Swetnick was named as the defendant in a domestic violence case - which was later dismissed - in Miami-Dade Circuit Court on March 1, 2001, according to documents obtained by the Miami Herald.

Kavanaugh is denying the new allegations.

Trump responded with outrage to claims against Kavanaugh, stating that his accusers are lying.

To be clear, Swetnick is not accusing Kavanaugh of assaulting her personally. In a teaser clip for an interview that will air in full on Showtime's "The Circus" Sunday, Swetnick tells co-host John Heilemann that she believes the behavior she witnessed from Kavanaugh when he was in high school disqualifies him from a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land.
