Julie Swetnick, the third woman to publicly accuse Supreme Court hopeful Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct from decades earlier, said in a television interview Monday that Kavanaugh was a "very aggressive, very sloppy drunk — very mean drunk."
But parts of Swetnick's account in the face-to-face interview also appeared to deviate from her affidavit.
In the interview with NBC News' Kate Snow that aired Monday evening on MSNBC, Swetnick detailed the shocking allegations first revealed in a sworn declaration made public last week by lawyer Michael Avenatti.
Swetnick, 55, had alleged in the declaration that in the early 1980s, she learned of efforts by then-teenage Kavanaugh and others to spike girls' drinks at house parties "so as to cause girls to lose their inhibitions and their ability to say 'no.'"
Kavanaugh has categorically denied all allegations of sexual misconduct against him, and said emphatically in Senate testimony last week, "I've never sexually assaulted anyone." After Swetnick's allegations surfaced, Kavanaugh flatly denied them, saying in a statement that the claims were "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone."
