Brett Kavanaugh says he 'never sexually assaulted anyone,' in prepared hearing remarks

Michael Avenatti has released an explosive declaration from his client Julie Swetnick, who said she was "gang" raped at a party where Brett Kavanaugh was present.

According to the poll, 83 percent of Republicans said they supported Kavanaugh, compared to the 9 percent of Democrats in support of him.

Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., announced Wednesday that he is filing a lawsuit against President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in a bid to prevent the Senate from taking up Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination until his "full record" is available.

President Donald Trump declined to answer a question about the latest allegations against Kavanaugh as he departed the United Nations on Wednesday.

In her affidavit, Swetnick says she met Kavanaugh at a house party and continued to see him at parties, which she said were a near-weekly occurrence during the school years of 1981 to 1983.

In his tweet, Avenatti says he sent Swetnick's testimony to chief counsel for nominations on the judiciary committee, Mike Davis, on Monday and has still not heard back. The calendar pages are from the summer of 1982, which is when Ford says she believes the assault occurred. "So the information that would have shown what she said at the very first time when she revealed these allegations have not been turned over to the Senate". The allegation comes one day before Kavanaugh is set to testify at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing along with another accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh held her down and tried to take her clothes off when they were in high school.

"I am innocent of this charge", Mr Kavanaugh says.

Kavanaugh has staunchly denied all allegations of sexual assault or misconduct. Kavanaugh denied the accusation soon after it was reported Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, by The New Yorker magazine.

On Tuesday, Clune had told CNN that he "wouldn't recommend" Ramirez testify unless there is an FBI investigation.

Kavanaugh said in an interview earlier this week with Fox News that he went to an all-boys Catholic high school where he focused on academics, and athletics.

Deborah Ramirez also alleged that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a dormitory party that involved drinking and thrust his genitals in her face while both were freshmen at Yale University.

Swetnick did not identify Kavanaugh or Judge as her attacker in that incident.

Ford will then leave the committee hearing room, and Kavanaugh will enter once Ford has departed. The most damning part of Swetnick's affidavit is when she recounts efforts by Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge to "target" specific girls they viewed as vulnerable and "spike" drinks.
