Who is Julie Swetnick, Michael Avenatti’s Client and Latest Kavanaugh Accuser?

Penn alum Michael Avenatti claims to represent client with damaging information on Brett Kavanaugh

Christine Blasey Ford, 51, says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during an alcohol-fueled house party in 1982 when she was about 15 and he was about 17.

Two other friends, Adela Gildo-Mazzon and Rebecca White, said Ford had made similar remarks to them, in 2013 and 2017 respectively, describing an alleged assault by a teenager who later became a federal judge. 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.

In one statement, family friend Keith Koegler said he wrote to Ford in a June 29 email, "I remember you telling me about him, but I don't remember his name".

Avenatti also represents adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, whom Trump gave hush money to over an alleged extramarital affair. "These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh", Swetnick continues.

Minutes after its 10 a.m. start time, Milano tweeted a photo from the scene, writing, "I believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford".

In Swetnick's statement, she said she met Kavanaugh and Judge in the early 1980s at a house party.

The Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a hearing Thursday for both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify.

Two others died in the state from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a generator inside their home, according to a local coroner. A spokesman for the South Carolina Highway Patrol warned on Saturday that conditions remained treacherous on roads.

In a sworn testimony that she signed under penalty of perjury, Swetnick claims that she attended several parties in the early 1980s at which she witnessed Kavanaugh "targeting" and engaging in "inappropriate contact of a sexual nature" with female attendees there. Thune said, "I can't see at this point where there is any evidence to suggest that she oughta come before, I mean if she herself has said that she's trying to search her memory to remember exactly what happened". Judge was a high school classmate of Kavanaugh.

A Senate Judiciary Committee source told CNN that the committee responded to Avenatti and investigators "immediately started looking" into Swetnick's allegations.

Swetnick, a resident of Washington, said she was a graduate of Gaithersburg High School in Maryland. But at the time, Russell Ford's statement says, she provided no details.

Her attorney Michael Avenatti provided a statement from his client to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The New Yorker magazine quoted Deborah Ramirez as saying Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a dormitory party that involved drinking when they both were Yale University freshmen. Republicans, therefore, are anxious to get to the climactic vote, while Democrats insist there should be a time-out to investigate the women's allegations.

"Over the past few days, other false and uncorroborated accusations have been aired", he says.

Detailed on the five pages of Kavanaugh's calendars for the summer of 1982 are many typical summer activities for a high school student.
