CNN Video Ford, Kavanaugh seek to bolster cases with new documents

A new woman alleging sexual misconduct against Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh has come forward-this time with legal representation from Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti.

She also alleges that she was aware that Kavanaugh and Judge would "spike" women's drinks and saw "trains" of men lined up towards a bedroom which had included Kavanaugh and Judge, where they all took turns with a victim.

FOX 5 has not been able to corroborate Swetnick's allegations and is investigating the claims.

Ford and Kavanaugh are set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called on Kavanaugh to withdraw in light of the allegations, and said if he does not, an FBI investigation is needed before any Senate vote on confirmation.

Wilkinson said Wednesday: "If this is going to be the standard for how we judge somebody going into public service, I don't know why anyone in their right mind would want to go through something like this". Swetnick, who recalled seeing Kavanaugh at multiple parties in the 1980s, said she herself was raped at a party "where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present", she said in the statement.

Her attorney Michael Avenatti provided a statement from his client to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

China ‘doesn’t want me to win’ upcoming polls: Trump at UNSC
Trump is addressing a roomful of hundreds of reporters from US and global media organizations in a sweltering hotel ballroom. He said he can't disclose the evidence, but that it will come out, adding that his allegation did not come "out of nowhere".

"Listen to the people who've known me best through my whole life, the women who have known me since high school, the 65 who overnight signed a letter from high school saying I always treated them with dignity and respect", he added. "Committee lawyers are in the process of reviewing it now", Foy said. "I spent most of my time in high school focused on academics, sports, church and service", the testimony reads.

There, Swetnick claims Kavanaugh engaged in "abusive and physically aggressive behavior toward girls, including pressing girls against him without their consent, "grinding" against girls, and attempting to remove or shift girls' clothing to expose private body parts". The incident happened around 1982, she said.

The allegations represent the latest development in the pitched battle in the Senate over whether to confirm Kavanaugh, a conservative federal appeals court judge picked by Trump in July, for a lifetime job on the top US court.

In his declaration, Koegler said he met the Fords while coaching their son's baseball team more than five years ago. He also said she was "very conflicted" about telling her story publicly.

A second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale University, told the New Yorker magazine that he exposed himself to her at a party when they were both first-year students.

Swetnick did not identify who allegedly raped her.

The comment came during an hour-long press conference in which Trump looked ahead to Thursday's hearing featuring Kavanaugh and one of his three accusers.
