Avenatti Names Third Kavanaugh Accuser

28 September 2018

The White House had no immediate comment.

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone", he said.

A new woman claimed yesterday to have witnessed sexually abusive behaviour by Brett Kavanaugh and said she was gang-raped at a party in the early 1980s attended by the Supreme Court nominee.

Avenatti also represents adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, whom Trump gave hush money to over an alleged extramarital affair.

President Donald Trump did not address Swetnick's allegations, but he did knock her lawyer, Avenatti, in a tweet Wednesday afternoon.

The calendars also show that he listed several parties that summer - including the dates and places.

Attorney Michael Avenatti provided a statement from his client to the committee. She did not identify her attackers.

Her affidavit claimed that "in approximately 1982", she was incapacitated without her consent and unable to fight off her rapists.

"I will say this...if a woman were to yell, interrupt and cry while being questioned, people would call her unhinged or say she had a meltdown", she tweeted.

"I likewise observed him be verbally abusive towards girls by making crude sexual comments to them that were created to demean, humiliate and embarrass them", she said. "She said she was able to escape before she was raped, but that the experience was very traumatic because she felt like she had no control and was physically dominated". The controversy has unfolded ahead of the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats seek to take control from the Republicans. "The standard of character and fitness for a position on the nation's highest court must be higher than this".

Ford's reply: "Brett Kavanaugh".

In an interview with the AP, Avenatti said he would not provide additional details about Swetnick's allegations, saying they want to see an FBI investigation. The Supreme Court nominee will be sworn in and will then give his opening statement.

Here is all you need to know about Captain Marvel including when it is released, the latest trailer, and who's in the cast. In this shot we see the title character revealing that the character will don the mask that she wears in the comics.

Here's a look at the statements, signed this week, that are certain to play a key role in Thursday's committee hearing where she and Kavanaugh are expected to testify separately.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley will make an opening statement with no time limit, followed by an opening statement from the top Democrat on the committee, Sen. These four "witnesses" are declaring, under oath, that Ford told them about her accusations at some point in the past six years, not to any firsthand knowledge of any assault or any of the events Ford alleges.

On July 28, 1982, the calendar also included a note, "go to Judge's", which is possibly about Mark Judge, the person who was allegedly with Kavanaugh when the assault occurred.

Adela Gildo-Mazzon states in her sworn affidavit that Ford told her the story about the assault, but did not mention Kavanaugh's name, when the two met at a Mountain View, California, restaurant in June 2013.

"I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking", she said in the statement.

Another woman, Deborah Ramirez, has accused him of exposing himself during a drunken dormitory party during the 1983-84 academic year when both attended Yale University.

"I'm OK with that", he said.

"I drank beer with my friends, usually on weekends".

The allegations against Kavanaugh have cast a cultural spotlight on his nomination in light of the "Me Too" movement.

"For me personally, anxiety, phobia and PTSD-like symptoms are the types of things I've been coping with", she said. That Republicans "could have pushed it through two weeks ago, and we wouldn't be talking about this right now, which is what I would have preferred". "But they didn't do that", Trump told reporters in NY, where he is attending the annual United Nations gathering of world leaders.

Trump noted that Senate Republicans were going out of their way to offer Kavanaugh's accuser Christine Ford a chance to testify.
