Julie Swetnick comes forward as Michael Avenatti's client accusing Kavanaugh

Stormy Daniels' attorney who recently threw himself into the fray over allegations of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh is denying he was pranked by a woman claiming to be another one of the emabattled Supreme Court nominee's accusers.

Julie Swetnick, 55, became the third person to call out Brett Kavanaugh, 53, of inappropriate sexual misconduct on September 26.

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". Then she gets to the meat of her accusation: She writes that she avoided drinking the "punch" at these parties in 1981 and 1982 after allegedly learning Kavanaugh, Judge, and others were spiking it with drugs or alcohol "so as to cause girls to lose their inhibitions".

Swetnick said she was a victim of one of those incidents in the early 1980s and that Kavanaugh and Judge had been present, though she did not say whether they had sex with her.

He is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, following the testimony of another of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford. After Farrow and Mayer released their story of a second woman who alleges sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, during his days at Yale University, Michael Avenatti took to Twitter with multiple bombshells of his own. She claims both Kavanaugh and Judge were at that party, but does not directly accuse them of committing the rape. There are multiple witnesses that will corroborate these facts and each of them must be called to testify publicly.

Kavanaugh has denied both Ramirez's and Ford's allegations.

Kavanaugh and the White House have not yet responded to these latest allegations.

The bombshell new claims come after two women came forward to accuse the judge of assaulting them in the 1980s, in a scandal that has tripped up what was expected to be an easy confirmation process for the conservative judge.

Trump on Tuesday said Ford's allegation was 36 years old "and nobody ever heard about it".

Democrats say that is all the more reason to halt the nomination process and let the FBI, which carries out background investigations for candidates to high positions, investigate them. She says she told two people about the incident shortly afterward. Julie has worked in the U.S. Government in the past, including the U.S. Mint and at the Department of Homeland Security.

"She is prepared to meet with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, disclose everything that she knows, disclose additional witnesses", and "absolutely" willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Avenatti added, appearing by phone on MSNBC following his tweet on Wednesday.
