The lawyer for another woman who is accusing U.S. President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, of sexual misconduct said on Wednesday he had submitted her sworn statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Lawyer Michael Avenatti identified his client on Twitter and also posted an email to the committee, as well as what he said was a sworn declaration from the woman outlining her allegations against Kavanaugh involving incidents that occurred in the 1980s.
The woman, Julie Swetnick, alleges that Kavanaugh often engaged in heavy drinking in high school. Her declaration to the senate claims that he and his friends spiked a "punch" at parties with alcohol and drugs so that they could be "gang raped" and she claims to have been a victim of such an incident in 1982 where Kavanaugh was present.
"He’s going to have that seat for rest of his life. If he’s gonna have that seat legitimately, all these things should be investigated, because from what I experienced first-hand, I don’t think he belongs on the Supreme Court," Julie Swetnick said in a preview of the interview, with Showtime's "The Circus," that aired early Thursday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
"I just want the facts to come out, and I want it to be just, and I want the American people to have those facts and judge for themselves," she added.
