The accusations being unceremoniously lobbed at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have officially reached peak absurdity, and thanks to none other than Stormy Daniels’ fame-seeking attorney, Michael Avenatti.
It all started on Sunday when Avenatti took to Twitter to make the explosive claim that he was representing “a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and classmate Mark Judge.” He later shared a screenshot of an email that he’d sent to Mike Davis, the chief counsel for nominations for the Senate Judiciary Committee, in which he specifically accused Kavanaugh and Judge of targeting “women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them.”

We demand that this process be thorough, open and fair, which is what the American public deserves. It must not be rushed and evidence/witnesses must not be hidden. pic.twitter.com/11XLZJBTtY

Having sufficiently worked the mainstream media into a frothing frenzy with these claims, Avenatti’s client, Juliet Swetnick, revealed herself on Wednesday – and her story is just as unbelievable as Christine Blasey Ford’s.
In a sworn declaration shared exclusively with Avenatti, Swetnick claimed that she “attended well over ten house parties in the Washington, D.C. area during the years 1981-1983 where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present,” and where she “witnessed Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh drink excessively and engage in highly inappropriate conduct, including being overly aggressive with girls and not taking ‘No’ for an answer.”
Further, Swetnick claimed that she “also witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh, and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be ‘gang-raped’ in a side room or bedroom by numerous boys” – exactly the language that Avenatti used in his previous email to Davis.

If true, these are damning claims. However, as with Ford, Swetnick’s story just has too many holes to float.
First, Swetnick claims that she voluntarily attended ten of these house parties over a span of two years, where she allegedly witnessed Judge and Kavanaugh run their rape train scheme “on numerous occasions.” If that’s true, why in the world did she keep attending the parties?
“Hey, are you going to this weekend’s Kavanaugh/Judge gang rape party?”
“I want to, but I’m not sure if I have anything to wear?”

Second, Swetnick specifically claims that she witnessed Judge and Kavanaugh’s inappropriate conduct “on one occasion in Ocean City, Maryland during Beach Week.” Notably, this claim conveniently emerged AFTER Kavanaugh had already provided a calendar to his lawyers clearly indicating that he was at a “Beach Week” from June 6-11, 1982.
I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that Avenatti’s allegation didn’t slot in an alleged date (“Beach Week”) until after Kavanaugh’s calendars were made public, using the exact term he put on his calendar. https://t.co/JjZewp9DVi

Finally, like Ford, Swetnick does not have any witnesses to corroborate her story, claiming only that “other women” also told her about Judge and Kavanaugh’s behavior.
I read Avenati’s “Swetnick declaration.” Legally it’s garbage because of the phrase “and others” in each allegation. That includes 6 billion suspects. Nice try, Julie. It’s too late to include her in the hearing tomorrow. That’s the point. Let the garbage stick after the hearing. pic.twitter.com/PrrtCgnuUL

BREAKING: Congressional sources say new Kavanaugh accuser Swetnick can offer no eyewitness or other evidence to show the SCOTUS nominee participated in any alleged “gang rape” or forced himself on girls, and that she only personally witnessed him drinking “excessively” at parties

As for Kavanaugh, he issued a strong denial of Swetnick’s claim – and he couldn’t have described the situation more aptly or succinctly. “This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don’t know who this is and this never happened,” he said.
If Congress hopes to keep this country from falling further into the Twilight Zone, they will confirm Kavanaugh on Thursday and not allow liberals to tank a person’s career over nothing more than “he said/she said.”
