Julie Swetnick became the third woman to come forward with allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh this week.
In her statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Swetnick said Kavanaugh was present at a high school party around 1982 where she was the victim of a “gang” rape. She did not identify Kavanaugh as one of her attackers. She said further that over a series of parties, she saw Kavanaugh “consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early 1980s.”
Swetnick’s credibility is now in question, however, after an ex-boyfriend came forward with claims that he filed a restraining order against her after they broke up in 2001. In addition, media outlets have discovered that Swetnick was represented in a sexual harassment complaint by the firm of the current lawyer for Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford.
WIBC hosts The Chicks on the Right tore into Swetnick Thursday morning, questioning the legitimacy of her claims.
“She is claiming to have been raped in 1982, even though she had already witnessed rapes at parties in 1981.”
“Yet she continued to attend these parties.”
“They were high school parties. She graduated high school in 1980, but apparently attended multiple high school parties after she had graduated. So why was she attending high school parties as an adult? I would someone to ask that question.”
“And she was going so often that she knew to avoid the scary punch. And she watched a whole bunch of other girls apparently be gang raped and kept going to the parties.”
“Which is another question I want someone to ask her, ‘Why in the hell didn’t you speak up if this was going on and tell someone about it?’ Why didn’t she tell the authorities?”
“I don’t want anyone to ask that question; I want this entire thing to get buried in a grave where it belongs. It’s such a bunch of nonsense.”
