The Democrats would seemingly have stopped at nothing to thwart the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and ruin the well-respected judge’s life. However, one of the women who supposedly “witnessed” Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct has now come forward to tell what actually happened some three and a half decades ago.
Brett Kavanaugh now sits on the Supreme Court, but his confirmation process was an embarrassing circus of political charades courtesy of the Democrats and accusations of sexual misconduct courtesy of women who never even really knew him. Some of the allegations made against the judge were so outrageous that they were difficult to believe. Perhaps the most outlandish of those claims was made by Julie Swetnick.
In a sworn declaration provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee through notorious porn lawyer Michael Avenatti, Swetnick alleged that Kavanaugh spiked drinks at parties in the 1980s where girls were gang-raped. She said that Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, purposely caused girls “to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be ‘gang-raped’ in a side room or bedroom by a ‘train’ of boys.”
Swetnick also claimed that she saw Kavanaugh, who was in high school at the time of the alleged incidents, groping and mistreating girls at the parties. She said that she saw Kavanaugh waiting in line to gang rape girls. Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegations.
Of course, there were holes in Swetnick’s story from the beginning. For instance, she supposedly attended these “gang rape” parties over and over again, but if she had actually been sexually assaulted by multiple people, why on earth would she continue to go back? Then there was the fact that she had a very suspicious connection to Kavanaugh’s first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. To say that it all smelled fishy would be an understatement.
Now, we have proof that Swetnick’s story was a farse from the beginning. What’s worse, Avenatti and NBC News possibly knew this all along.
Swetnick and Avenatti claimed that witnesses would back up her allegations. Under pressure to produce those witnesses, Avenatti put NBC in contact with a second woman. But according to The Daily Caller, the woman who Avenatti claimed backed Swetnick’s allegations against Kavanaugh has recanted her story and is accusing Avenatti of “twisting” her words.
In her declaration, the woman said, “During the years 1981-82, I witnessed firsthand Brett Kavanaugh, together with others, ‘spike’ the ‘punch’ at house parties I attended with Quaaludes and/or grain alcohol. I understood this was being done for the purpose of making girls more likely to engage in sexual acts and less likely to say ‘No.'”
She also claimed that Kavanaugh was “overly aggressive and verbally abusive to girls. This conduct included inappropriate physical contact with girls of a sexual nature.”
However, two days after Avenatti published the woman’s declaration, she told NBC that “it is incorrect that I saw Brett spike the punch. I didn’t see anyone spike the punch…I was very clear with Michael Avenatti from day one.”
According to NBC News, the woman said in her phone interview with the network that she “didn’t ever think it was Brett” who spiked the punch at parties. Additionally, the woman told reporters that she did not know Swetnick in high school. They only became friends when they were in their 30s. The woman also said that, although she knew who Kavanaugh was in high school, she never saw him behave inappropriately toward girls.
“I would not ever allow anyone to be abusive in my presence. Male or female,” said the woman. When asked about the discrepancy, Avenatti lashed out at NBC’s reporters, saying that he was “disgusted” by their questions.
Moreover, the woman told NBC News that she would no longer be communicating with Avenatti because of the way he had misrepresented her story. “I will definitely talk to you again and no longer Avenatti. I do not like that he twisted my words,” she said.
The saga is laid out in a new report from NBC News, which interviewed Swetnick on Oct. 1, days after Avenatti released a sworn declaration in which she accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.
In an effort to bolster Swetnick’s allegations, Avenatti put NBC reporters in touch with the second woman for a phone interview on Sept. 30. He published her sworn declaration on Twitter on Oct. 2.
But according to NBC, the woman’s statements during the Sept. 30 interview were inconsistent with the declaration published by Avenatti.
Still, NBC decided to run with their Swetnick interview. And Avenatti continued to push his client’s story. So much for fact-checking. So much for legitimate journalism.
Thankfully, however, justice ultimately prevailed. Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court earlier this month, despite repeated attempts from those on the political left to ruin his career and his life.
