Dem Ex-Boyfriend Doesn't Believe Third Kavanaugh Accuser, Swetnick

Adjust Comment Print

"Yet another accuser has come forward (see sworn stmt below). There are many witnesses that can support her allegations and we are prepared to provide those names to the Federal Bureau of Investigation as we have been saying for a week".

"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".

In a sworn declaration last week Ms. Swetnick said Judge Kavanaugh, as a high school student in the early 1980s, was "present" when she was a victim of a "train" rape.

But on Monday night, in an interview with NBC, Swetnick admitted, "I don't know what [Kavanaugh] did, but I saw him by [punch containers]". Kavanaugh testified that the calendar served as somewhat of a "diary".

"He was very aggressive, very sloppy drunk, very mean drunk". "This conduct included inappropriate physical contact with girls of a sexual nature".

Ketterer said he decided not to see Swetnick anymore due to her "penchant for group sex", writing in his letter that "A.I.D.S. was a huge issue at the time".

"I understood this was being done for the goal of making girls more likely to engage in sexual acts and less likely to say 'No, '" she said.

Kavanaugh said he has no idea who she is and denies the allegations. Of those alleged witnesses, one is dead, two did not respond to NBC News' request for comment, and a fourth said he didn't remember Swetnick and didn't think he'd socialized with her. "I saw him around the punchbowls".

What Swetnick did confirm, however, was that she survived a gang rape at a party that Kavanaugh attended. As The Washington Free Beacon reported, "She said she "didn't know what was occurring" in the bedrooms she initially described as the site of gang rapes, but said it was "just too coincidental" that wasn't what was happening". Snow asked Swetnick why she would go to Avenatti with this information, given that many in the media distrust his motivations. In the interview, she said that instead of lining up to wait their turn to rape, the boys were huddled near the doorways laughing.

Richard Vinneccy confirmed to Politico that he had filed a restraining order against Swetnick following their breakup, alleging she threatened him and his family. "She never mentioned Brett Kavanaugh in any capacity".

"She was exaggerating everything". Ketterer, who doesn't drink alcohol, says he met Swetnik at a bar on Wisconsin Circle.

Bizarrely, Swetnick has an even longer history of legal disputes, being involved in six cases in the last 25 years. Avenatti told The Associated Press that court cases involving her have no bearing on the credibility of her claims about Kavanaugh.

She didn't directly accuse Kavanaugh or Judge of assaulting her - but did place them at the same party where she was violated.

She was confused about the timing of the Kavanaugh nomination, first suggesting that she thought about coming forward when she learned Kavanaugh had been shortlisted for the Supreme Court, but later suggesting that it was Ford's decision to speak out that prompted her. Swetnick's failure to recall whether something happened in July or September does not inspire great confidence that she can accurately recall events from three decades ago.
