  • Julie Swetnick Photos: Full Story Of Brett Kavanaugh Accuser

And on Wednesday, Julie Swetnick said in a signed declaration that a teenage Kavanaugh was among a group that spiked drinks at high school parties in the 1980s to make it easier to rape girls.

The third woman, Julie Swetnick, alleged she witnessed Kavanaugh "consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s".

This allegation is coming at the last minute (they'll ignore the fact that Avenatti has been trying to get the Senate Judiciary Committee to meet with her since Sunday). Another committee spokesman, Taylor Foy, said the panel received Swetnick's declaration Wednesday and "committee lawyers are in the process of reviewing it now".

Kavanaugh has said he categorically denies ever sexually assaulting anyone.

Kavanaugh responded to Swetnick's allegations in a statement released by the White House: "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Swetnick, who is being represented by Michael Avenatti, said in the affidavit released Wednesday that she was a victim of a gang rape in 1982 by a group of boys.

The 2012 notes, even in redacted form, are relevant because they are the first time Ford says she described the alleged assault in any detail. That delay and the lack of evidence to support the allegations is raising suspicions voiced Tuesday by President Donald Trump, who accused Democrats of using the women in a "con job" created to delay Kavanaugh's confirmation past the November midterm election - or kill it outright. "I don't know who this is and this never happened", Kavanaugh said. She then said that Kavanaugh pinned her to the bed and groped her over her clothes, and attempted to take them off. Ford alleges that when she tried to scream, Kavanaugh put his hand over her mouth. "I never had any sexual or physical encounter of any kind with Dr. Ford", Kavanaugh will say. Ford accused Kavanaugh almost two weeks ago of pinning her down, attempting to remove her clothes and holding his hand over her mouth so she wouldn't scream. The AP has not been able to corroborate them, and continues to investigate.

Anderson Cooper pressed John Clune on the report that his client was not sure that the person who sexually harassed her had been Kavanaugh, and that she only confirmed it after several days of conferring with legal counsel. Swetnick also implies that Kavanaugh and Judge participated in the assaults themselves.

Flake will be among the group of senators in the Senate Judiciary Committee who will witness the Thursday testimony.

"I also witnessed Brett Kavanaugh behave as a "mean drunk" on many occasions at these parties".

Lawyers for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford are bolstering their cases ahead of Thursday's hearing. She said that she has inactive clearances at the State Department, the Department of Justice, Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection. She also claimed that the two would "spike" the punch with quaaludes at the parties.

"I haven't asked her about the information in the New York Times, um, article, no", Clune replied.
