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.
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.
