Julie Swetnick has become the third woman to go on record with an accusation of sexual assault against Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Unlike the first two, however, Swetnick is not alleging any attempt by Kavanaugh to force himself upon her.
She is alleging that the judge took part in a gang rape of her and other women.
In a sworn declaration, Swetnick – who is represented by the same lawyer who works for former Donald Trump fling, Stormy Daniels – Swetnick says she first met Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, at a house party in 1980 or 1981.
She says the pals were “joined at the hip” and and that she observed the pair “engage in highly inappropriate conduct” while drunk over the years.
This included “being overly aggressive with girls and not taking “No” for an answer.
Kavanaugh has been nominated for the Supreme Court by President Donald Trump and has already been accused of:
– Holding down a woman named Christine Blasey Ford and trying to rape her during a party in high school.
– Pulling out his penis in front of a woman named Deborah Ramirez during his freshman year of college and making her touch it against her will.
Kavanaugh has denied both of these allegations and is due to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday morning in response to Ford’s claim.
Swetnick goes on to label Kavanaugh’s personal claims of “[innocent]” behavior in high school (during a recent Fox News interview) as “absolutely false and a lie.”
She then gets into grisly detail regarding why she says this and how she knows it.
During the years 1981-1982, Swetnick says she “became aware of efforts” by Kavanaugh and Judge to “spike the punch” at house parties. The goal, she says, was to “cause girls to lose their inhibitions.”
“I also witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could be “gang raped” in a side room or bedroom by a “train of numerous boys.”
She writes that she has a “firm recollection” of Judge and Kavanaugh being among the males waiting outside of a bedroom in order to take their turn in this horrible act.
Swetnick then writes that she was a victim of one of these gang rapes.
And that Judge and Kavanaugh were “present” for it.
“During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me. I believe I was drugged,” Swetnick says.
She adds that other witnesses are out there who can “attest to the truthfulness of each statement” she has made — and that she declares, under the penalty of perjury, that this is all “true and correct.”
As of this writing, Kavanaugh has not commented on this latest accusation.
He has maintained throughout his nomination process that he rarely drank or parties and has dismissed all notions that he was ever out of control in this manners; let alone that he ever committed sexual assault.
Among others who knew Kavanaugh, however, his freshman year roommate at Yale says the type of drunken behavior outlined by his accusers and others “100 percent” sounds like the man he knew in college.
Judge’s ex-girlfriend, Elizabeth Rasor, recalled to The New Yorker “that Judge had told her ashamedly of an incident that involved him and other boys taking turns having sex with a drunk woman.
“Rasor said that Judge seemed to regard it as fully consensual.”
A spokesman for Senate Judiciary Committee, meanwhile, has confirmed the following this morning:
“Michael Avenatti provided a declaration to the Judiciary Committee. Committee lawyers are in the process of reviewing it now.”
Expect to hear plenty more about Julie Swetnick in the hours and days to come.

It’s been five months since Bill Cosby was found guilty of raping Andrea Constand in 2004.
Today, a sentencing hearing for the disgraced comedy legend began, and while it looks increasingly likely that Cosby will go to prison for his crimes, many feel that the 81-year-old will likely escape with a much lighter sentence than he deserves.
In a Pennsylvania courtroom today, prosecutor Kevin Steele implored a sentencing judge to throw the book at Cosby with 10 years in prison and a $ 25,000 fine for the crime of drugging and sexually assaulting Constand.
“This is about a person who put himself in a situation of being a mentor,” Steele told the court.
“We know he had other intentions right from the beginning: What he saw in Andrea the first time he laid eyes on her, what his plan was,” he continued.
“He used his fame. He doesn’t recognize that it’s wrong to drug somebody and sexually assault them.”
Those present in the courtroom described Steele as “very emotional” noting that the prosecutor was “almost crying” during his closing statements.
Cosby’s victim also addressed the court, providing a brief statement in what one observer described as a clear, unemotional voice:
“I have testified, I have given you my victim impact statement. You heard me, the jury heard me and Mr. Cosby heard me,” Constand said.
“All I’m asking for is justice as the court sees fit.”
Sentencing has been delayed until at least Tuesday due to the absence of a defense witness who was unable to testify today, but we already have a rough idea of what’s in store for Cosby.
While the TV personality who was once dubbed “America’s dad” could face up to 30 years in prison, the judge in his case informed the courtroom today that Cosby will not serve a sentence of longer than three years.
Sources connected to the case are said to be outraged by the judge’s determination and believe it to be the result of the defense’s assertion that Cosby is too old and infirm to represent a threat to the public.
We will have further details on this developing story as more information becomes available.
