Kavanaugh’s Third Accuser Gives First Interview. Here’s What She had to Say

Published

on

Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct from 35 years ago has become the first of these individuals to grant the media an interview.

Swetnick is making an appearance on Showtime’s “The Circus” on Sunday, where she tells co-host John Heilemann that the kind of behavior she allegedly witnessed Brett Kavanaugh participating in back in high school disqualifies him from being on the Supreme Court.

On Wednesday, porn star Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, unveiled the Kavanaugh “gang rape train” allegation that he had been teasing since the beginning of the week. He also revealed the identity of the woman making the allegation: Julie Swetnick. In a sworn statement Avenatti tweeted out Wednesday, Swetnick alleges that in the early 1980s, when she was in college, she attended around 10 high parties with high schoolers where Kavanaugh and Mark Judge were present and at which vulnerable women were regularly encouraged to get drunk or were drugged so that they might be “gang raped.” She does not allege that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her, but says she was the victim of one of these alleged gang rapes and suggests he participated in others. Kavanaugh has adamantly denied the allegations, which he said were “from The Twilight Zone,” and says he doesn’t know who Swetnick is.

Asked by Heilemann why she’s waited until just one day before Kavanaugh’s hearing on the Christine Blasey Ford allegations to come forward, Swetnick said, “Well, it wasn’t that I wanted to come out just one day before the hearings. Circumstances brought it out that way. This is something that occurred a long time ago, and it’s not that I just thought about it; it’s been on my mind ever since the occurrences.”

“Brett Kavanaugh is going for a seat where he’s going to have that seat on the Supreme Court for the rest of his life,” she told Heilemann, Avenatti standing by her. “And if he’s going to have that seat legitimately, all of these things should be investigated because, from what I experienced firsthand, I don’t think he belongs on the Supreme Court.” (Link to clip below.)

Instead of submitting the serious charges of “gang rapes” to law enforcement, Swetnick and Avenatti sent a statement to the Senate, stressing that Kavanaugh’s hearing should be delayed until the matter could be fully investigated. Swetnick has produced no evidence or witnesses to corroborate her claims. The New York Times reports: “None of Ms. Swetnick’s claims could be independently corroborated by The New York Times, and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, declined to make her available for an interview.”

As you can see from above, the whole goal of submitting this accusation to the Senate Judiciary Committee was to delay the confirmation vote. If that doesn’t make this whole situation look a little sketchy, you’re being naive.

When confronted about Swetnick’s ex-boyfriend obtaining a restraining order against her, this is what Avenatti had to say:

Avenatti responded to Politico’s questions about the restraining order by accusing the outlet of “attacking” a sexual assault victim. “Complete nonsense. No truth to this at all. Her ex-boyfriend fraudulently used her resume to apply for and obtain jobs and was caught by her,” said Avenatti. “Why are you all attacking a sexual assault victim? Would that be appropriate in a court of law? I am disgusted by the fact that the press is attacking a sexual assault victim.”

Notice how he completely shifted tactics to make it seem like the media questioning him and his client is some form of victim shaming? This guy is truly despicable.

The bottom line here is that none of these accusations have any sort of hard proof to back them up. On top of that, much of the statement from the first accuser is contradictory.

At the end of the day, it certainly seems as if the Democrats are only out to delay this vote in hopes they can sweep some important seats in Congress and deny Kavanaugh’s appointment.

Shameful.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
