New allegations against Kavanaugh submitted to Senate committee

Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, called Vinneccy's allegations "complete nonsense" and said Swetnick caught him using her resume to apply for jobs.

Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers have asked senators to limit the press who will be allowed in the room to cover Thursday's hearing with her and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and sought to dictate at least some of the outlets.

She says this was done so the girls could be gang-raped, and Swetnick says she was one of the victims of a rape where Kavanaugh and the friend were present. "And I don't think that any human being should treat people that way", she said.

Kavanaugh said he drank beer usually on weekends and "sometimes I had too many".

To be clear, Swetnick is not accusing Kavanaugh of assaulting her personally.

Swetnick alleged she became one of the victims of "one of these "gang" or "train" rapes".

Ford is expected to step before cameras for the first time Thursday to detail the night she says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s.

The New York Times reported that according to her online resume, Swetnick graduated from Gaithersburg High School in 1980, while Kavanaugh graduated from Georgetown Prep only three years later, in 1983.

Swetnick said she previously held security clearances for her earlier work with the State Department, Department of Justice, and Department of Homeland Security.

Despite that, Feinstein pushed him on those accusations and discussed the lack of an FBI investigation, and Kavanaugh pushed back.

While testifying about allegations made against him, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh laid into Sen.

The accusation threw Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination into turmoil, setting up a showdown with unmistakable echoes of the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings. "He is just looking for attention and doesn't want people to look at his past record and relationships - a total low-life!"

Swetnick also said she was gang raped in 1982 by a group of boys, and that Kavanaugh and his friend were "present" during the attack, though she did not describe the extent of their alleged involvement.

In a statement from the White House, Kavanaugh said of Swetnick's allegations, "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Trump also slammed Democrats in Congress over the allegations and predicted voters will side with Republicans in November. Supposedly, there's a vote on his confirmation scheduled for Friday morning, but judging from the parade of elected officials on TV this morning weighing in on this latest news, I doubt that's going to happen. "Circumstances brought it out that way", she said.

"My client deserves the right to be placed under oath and testify", he urged, including an email sent to Judiciary Committee chief counsel Mike Davis.

The Senate Judiciary Committee said Wednesday it is reviewing new allegations after attorney Michael Avenatti provided a statement from his client to the committee.

"There is no question in my mind that Mark Judge has significant information concerning the conduct of Brett Kavanaugh during the 1980s, especially as it relates to his actions toward women", she said.

He added: 'I want to watch. Violence against women should have no place in our society and it certainly should have no place on the highest court in the nation.
