Julie Swetnick Didn't Accuse Kavanaugh Outright in New Interview

05 October, 2018, 00:13 | Author: Gregory Stephens
  • Court records reviewed by The Associated Press show Swetnick has been involved in at least six legal cases over the past 25 years

But Senate Judiciary Committee staffers blasted it out to the media.

Even if Ketterer's statements about Swetnick are accurate, they don't diminish the severity or credibility of Swetnick's allegations, she said.

She said she would be "fully, willing, and able to speak with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and tell them everything I know about Brett Kavanaugh and his misconduct if I am contacted".

"During the years 1981-82, I became aware of efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to "spike" the "punch" at house parties I attended with drugs and/or grain alcohol so as to cause girls to lose their inhibitions and their ability to say 'no'".

Because AIDS was a big issue at the time, Ketterer said he decided not to see her anymore after she "directly stated a penchant for group sex". Details that make him now question the legitimacy of her sex assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh. Swetnick, who is represented by Resistance TV lawyer Michael Avenatti, recently made headlines after accusing Brett Kavanaugh of being present at high school parties where there were gang rapes. To not able to have someone stop when I said "no, stop". She added that "he is an admitted blackout drunk and drug addict". Journalist Sean Walsh called her "an unbalanced woman fabricating outrageous stories for attention", who should face legal consequences.

"I live 20 minutes from the downtown Federal Bureau of Investigation office". I had never been hit on in a bar before.

NBC says Swetnick gave them the name of an officer who she spoke to, and a spokesman confirmed that an officer by that name worked there around the time she spoke about, but that he is now deceased. He said he chose to end things when they had a conversation about sexual preferences.

"During a conversation about our sexual preferences, things got derailed when Julie told me that she liked to have sex with more than one guy at a time".

What the Times didn't disclose was the fact that Bazelon has openly spoken out against Kavanaugh in the past. "I felt she only had interest in my 350 lb self because I was on television and well known", he wrote. I think he's a man of great intellect, as I've been telling you, and he has an unblemished record.

Describing her own attack, she said she remembers feeling unwell before being pushed into a room and having her clothes torn off by multiple boys. Her father "told me that she had psychological and other problems". And I had children. "That was, like rich white male heyday - I mean, every decade is, but that one was extra good for them". It put my head back on straight.

"There's an ugly history of making a correlation between whether or not a survivor is believable and their sexual history or sexual practices and what we know is those two things are not related", Haight said.

Ketterer goes on to say Swetnick never told him of any sexual assault or gang rape, nor mentioned Kavanaugh.

Ketterer ran for Congress in 1996 as a Democrat but did not win the primary for Maryland's 8th district.

"My body was violated", she told host Kate Snow.

But on Twitter, MSNBC senior vice president Jonathan Wald responded to an unnamed critic who wondered why the network continued "to perpetuate the unsubstantiated, absurd accusations and hope someday someone will back her up ... this is journalistic integrity?"
