Avenatti is providing a statement from a woman who said she has known Ford, Kavanaugh, his friend Mark Judge, and his accuser Julie Swetnick for decades.

Avenatti has been very vocal in representing Swetnick, telling Business Insider on Monday that he did not trust the investigation underway by the FBI.

Kavanaugh denies the allegations, and denies even knowing Swetnick. However, Kate Snow, who conducted the interview, noted that the network is "not discounting what she said in any way", and said that "a lot of people" were working on corroborating her account.

"I can not specifically say that he [Kavanaugh] was one of the ones who assaulted me", she said.

Those are normal signals for news organizations to apply the brakes.

But will there be a confirmation vote in the full Senate this week?

"It's an unusually tough call", said Jane Hall, a professor at the School of Communication at American University.

The Federalist's Sean Davis called Swetnick "a lying slip-and-fall con artist with a prostitute's PR rep for a lawyer".

In the interview, she said she had graduated high school and was at community college when she began attending house parties where she met Kavanaugh. Due to her having a directly stated penchant for group sex, I decided not to see her anymore. "But, before this happened to me, at that party, I saw Brett Kavanaugh there, I saw Mark Judge, and they were hanging out about where I started to feel disoriented and where the room was and where the other boys were hanging out and laughing".

But Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Business Insider that Avenatti's involvement was essentially irrelevant because the allegations were Swetnick's.

Meanwhile Deborah Ramirez says Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a third house party around the same time. She said she contacted the Montgomery County, Maryland, police about it; when NBC contacted the police to ask if there were any records, they said it could take up to a month to find them.

But now, Swetnick recalled seeing the two friends merely hovering around the area where there were alcoholic drinks. Lindsey Graham of SC said.

"I saw him [Kavanaugh] giving red Solo cups to quite a few girls during that time frame", she told NBC News on Monday night.

"Their journalistic integrity has been destroyed over this case", Graham said. She claims that Kavanaugh's friends would gang-rape young girls in bedrooms at these parties, and that she herself was gang raped at one such party in 1982. NBC also fired "Today" show anchor Matt Lauer because of sexual misconduct. But questions have been raised about the veracity of each claim, as well as at least two others lodged anonymously. You are nothing to us. "That's the opposite of perpetuating it".

"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 claimed. That's in line with the AP's editorial decisions in similar "MeToo" cases, he said.

"I would see boys standing outside of rooms, congregated together, sort of like a gauntlet", she said.

Before the interview aired, Snow cautioned the audience. "Hatch, we felt it important to disclose", Whitlock said. "Swetnick, by everything we can tell, is a serious person with serious charges". Both her mother and the officer are now deceased.
