Woman Claims Brett Kavanaugh Was Present While She Was ‘Gang Raped’

Deborah Ramirez Brett Kavanaugh 2nd Accuser Joins 3rd Accuser

Deborah Ramirez Brett Kavanaugh 2nd Accuser Joins 3rd Accuser

Chairman Grassley has said he is proceeding with Judge Kavanaugh's nomination despite the shocking allegation that he drugged and gang raped women.

She claims in the affidavit that she was the victim of one of these alleged gang rapes in approximately 1982, and that Kavanaugh was allegedly present when it occurred.

Asked if he was undecided on supporting the judge, Rubio said, "Like anybody else, I am going to watch the hearing tomorrow", while also deferring questions about the appropriateness of a floor vote on Kavanaugh early next week.

Swetnick says that in 1981 and 1982, she became aware of efforts by Judge, Kavanaugh and others to "spike the punch at house parties" so as to "cause girls to lose their inhibitions and their ability to say 'No'". Or perhaps we will learn that her account is persuasive and compelling, and there are strong reasons to believe it, even apart from the fact that it is consistent with so much else we have heard about Kavanaugh's high school social scene. In prepared written testimony released Wednesday by the committee, Kavanaugh says he "never had any sexual or physical encounter of any kind with [Ford]", per CNN, and that he did not do "anything remotely resembling what [Ford] describes".

"Mr. Judge vehemently denies the allegations contained in the Swetnick affidavit."

Koegler says Ford was "particularly bothered by it because she was assaulted in high school by a man who was now a federal judge in Washington, D.C".




She said that she observed Kavanaugh "drink [ing] excessively" at many parties, which she said happened "nearly every weekend during the school year".

"Under no circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full and complete investigation", he said on Twitter.

She added that they "engaged in highly inappropriate conduct, including being overly aggressive with girls and not taking "no" for an answer". "This conduct included the fondling and grabbing girls without their consent", the sworn statement says. Of course, if Swetnick's allegations are true, what she is doing now, testifying to her claims, is the epitome of warning others about abuse. No additional witnesses have been identified or come forward yet. Murkowski did not weigh in with a public statement Thursday; Collins told CNN that the allegations should be investigated by the committee and that she takes them very seriously; Corker told reporters Wednesday morning he did not know enough about the latest allegations to comment. Ford, the first woman to accuse Kavanaugh of assault, alleged that Judge was present for that incident. Ford has said the pair were at a gathering of high school students when he shoved her into a room, pinned her to a bed, groped her over her clothes and put his hand over her mouth when she started to scream. Instead, the Republicans selected a female sex crimes prosecutor to lead the questioning of Ford.

"She has been fully vetted time and time again, and she is an honest and courageous woman", lawyer Michael Avenatti told MSNBC after releasing client Julie Swetnick's sworn declaration containing the scathing allegations against the embattled US Supreme Court nominee.

Another woman, Deborah Ramirez, has also accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her during a college party.
