Represented by attorney Michael Avenatti, a third woman, Julie Swetnick, came forward publicly on Wednesday to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of gross sexual misconduct when he was a young man.
In her sworn statement, Swetnick says that she "fully understands the seriousness" of her accusations and charges that she was "gang raped" when she was a high school student at a party and that Kavanaugh, and his friend Mark Judge, were both "present."
She also says she that Kavanaugh and his friends were known at the time for "targeting" girls with alcohol and drugs in order to take advantage of them sexually, and that she has "a firm recollection" that Judge and Kavanaugh were among the "boys lined up outside rooms at many [other] parties waiting for their 'turn' with a girl inside the room."
