A third woman stepped forward Wednesday to accuse Supreme Court hopeful Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
Accuser Julie Swetnick, in a sworn declaration tweeted out by her lawyer Michael Avenatti — who is also representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump — alleged that Kavanaugh and others, while in high school, spiked the drinks of girls at parties to make it easier for them to be gang raped.
"I witnessed Brett Kavanaugh consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early 1980s," Swetnick says in her statement, which she signed under penalty of perjury.
The three-page declaration was sent to the counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is set to hear testimony from Kavanaugh and another woman, Christine Blasey Ford, as early as tomorrow. A spokesman for committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley said the committee is currently reviewing the document.
Kavanaugh has said he categorically denies ever sexually assaulting anyone.
On Wednesday, Kavanaugh responded to the latest accusations in a statement released by the White House: "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don't know who this is and this never happened."
