WASHINGTON D.C. (News4Utah)- A woman who says she knew Judge Brett Kavanaugh in high school accuses Kavanaugh and his high school friends of spiking girl’s drinks at parties to drug the girls for sex.
The woman, Julie Swetnick, made her allegations in sworn affidavit — which says:
“In approximately 1982 became the victim of one of these gang or train rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present. Shortly after the incident, I shared what had transpired with at least two other people.”
“For the committee to try to sweep this under the rug and just make it into he said she said, it’s just wrong, “Oregon Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley said.
The White House released a statement on behalf of Kavanaugh on the latest accusation which said: “This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don’t know who this is and this never happened.”
At almost precisely the same moment as the new allegations were revealed, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch questioned the credibility of Kavanaugh’s two other accusers.
“I think it is a smear. I don’t think there’s any question in my mind about it,” Hath said.
Democratic Senator Ron Wyden says Republicans don’t care about getting to the truth.
“The facts don’t matter, the evidence doesn’t matter, the only thing that matters is jamming this through.
The historic hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh takes place on Thursday, September 27 in Washington.
