Third woman makes sexual misconduct allegations about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Third woman makes sexual misconduct allegations about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Swetnick alleged that Kavanaugh and Judge were among the boys she saw "lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room", though it does not appear that Swetnick witnessed such an attack.

Judiciary Committee Republicans say they are now reviewing Swetnick's allegations.

A new accuser against Brett Kavanaugh said the Supreme Court nominee took part in efforts during high school to get girls intoxicated so that a group of boys could have sex with them.

The three-page declaration was sent to the counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is set to hear testimony from Kavanaugh and another woman, Christine Blasey Ford, as early as tomorrow.

Responding to Avenatti's client, Kavanaugh said in a Wednesday statement, "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Ford, who alleges when she and Kavanaugh were in high school, he pinned her down at a party and covered her mouth while trying to remove her clothing, will then be sworn in and give an opening statement.

"I never did anything remotely resembling what Dr. Ford describes", Kavanaugh said, while claiming he's "never sexually assaulted anyone" at any point his life.

A hearing will be held Thursday in which Kavanaugh will defend accusations from Christine Ford, a university professor, that he had forced himself on her in a party during their high school years in the 1980s. Trump said: "If I thought he was guilty of something like this. yeah, sure".

Two more women have come forward this week with allegations of sexual misconduct involving Kavanaugh.

He added, "I strongly believe Judge Kavanaugh should withdraw from consideration".

Mr Kavanaugh denies having a "sexual or physical encounter of any kind" with Ms Ford. Kavanaugh denied the accusation soon after it was reported Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, by The New Yorker magazine.

Attorney Avenatti tweeted a sworn testimony from the third accuser Swetnick.

"Republicans need to immediately suspend the proceedings related to Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, and the president must order the FBI to reopen the background check investigation", the New York Democrat said in a statement. "These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh".

The judiciary panel's Republican chairman, Senator Chuck Grassley, said the hearing would go forward.
