The accusations against Brett Kavanaugh

Swetnick, who released her sworn statement through high-profile lawyer Michael Avenatti, says she now holds an active security clearance and works "within the federal government".

Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers have asked senators to limit the press who will be allowed in the room to cover Thursday's hearing with her and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and sought to dictate at least some of the outlets.

Swetnick claimed she was a victim of a gang rape around 1982, after she graduated high school, and she alleges Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, were "present" there while they were still high schoolers.

Giving her testimony, she said: "I was pushed from behind into a bedroom across from the bathroom, I couldn't see who pushed me, Brett and Mark came into the bedroom and locked the door behind them".

She does not say Kavanaugh participated in the alleged rape or what, if any, role he played, nor does she say where the alleged episode took place. Swetnick alleged that she was the victim of a gang rape at one of these parties where Kavanaugh was present, though she did not implicate him in the attack on her. Both Kavanaugh and Ford attended high school in Montgomery County, although they attended private schools. We demand an immediate FBI investigation into the allegations.

The New York Times reported that according to her online resume, Swetnick graduated from Gaithersburg High School in 1980, while Kavanaugh graduated from Georgetown Prep only three years later, in 1983.

Swetnick called Kavanaugh's claims of innocence "absolutely false and a lie" and said he consistently showed this inappropriate sexual behavior throughout her time knowing him. An attorney for Mark Judge told NBC News that "Mr. Judge vehemently denies Ms. Swetnick's allegations".

Kavanaugh faces a crucial Senate hearing Thursday where he will seek to rebut sexual misconduct claims from women.

The committee chairman, Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, issued a statement Wednesday saying the committee had received the declaration from Avenatti and that committee lawyers were reviewing it.

President Trump is standing by his nominee but said at a press conference Wednesday he would be watching the testimony and reserved the right to change his mind on Kavanaugh. "I want the American people to have those facts and judge for themselves", she said.

Avenatti, the attorney made famous by CNN for representing porn star Stormy Daniels, was caught off guard by the news of the restraining order filed against his client.

Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, another member of the Judiciary Committee, said he still expects the committee to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination on Friday.

"When did you first hear from Julie Swetnick, before or after Christine Blasey Ford's story was published in the Washington Post two Sundays ago?"

"Brett Kavanaugh is going for a seat where he's going to have that seat on the Supreme Court for the rest of his life", said Swetnick.

Trump tweeted late last week that Ford specifically wasn't being truthful because she stayed silent for so long. I want to watch.

Rasor recalled that Judge had told her ashamedly of an incident that involved him and other boys taking turns having sex with a drunk woman.
