A third woman has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, and the allegations are devastating and disturbing.

Julie Swetnick has sent a sworn affidavit to the Senate Judiciary Committee, via her lawyer Michael Avenatti, who also represents Stormy Daniels.


Swetnick, who has worked for the federal government and holds active clearances associated with the Department of Treasury, writes that she knew Brett Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge while they were in high school.

“I attended well over ten house parties in the Washington, D.C. area during the years 1981-1983 where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present,” she writes. “On numerous occassions at these parties, I witnesses Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh drink excessively and engage in highly inappropriate conduct, including being overly aggressive with girls and not taking 'no' for an answer. This conduct included the fondling and grabbing of girls without their consent.”

In addition to writing that she “observed Brett Kavanaugh drink excessively at these parties and enage in abusive and physically aggressive behavior towards girls,” she mentions having seen him at a string of parties known as “Beach Week.” Incidentally, Kavanaugh records having been at Beach Week in the calendar he turned over the Senate to try and clear his name.

Here is where things go from terrible to worse.

Swetnick writes that she witnesses “efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could be ‘ gang raped’ in a side bedroom by a ‘train’ of numerous boys. I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their ‘turn’ inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh.”

She adds that in “approximately 1982,” she became a victim of one of these rapes where Judge and Kavanaugh were present. Swetnick adds that after the incident, she shared her story with at least two other people who can testify.

“During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me,” she writes. “I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking.”

Although it feels like years ago, it was just yesterday that Bill Cosby was sent to prison for drugging and raping Andrea Constand.

Kavanaugh and Professor Christine Blasey Ford are scheduled to testify tomorrow before the Senate Judiciary Committee, with a vote slated for Friday morning.

Here is the full affidavit submitted by Swetnick under threat of perjury. As someone with a security clearance, submitting this document puts her career on the line.

After three years on the sidelines, Colin Kapernick will be working out for multiple NFL teams on Saturday, November 16 at the Atlanta Falcons facility.

The former 49er quarterback who inflamed the culture wars by peacefully protesting against social injustice during the national anthem made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday.

Kaepernick is scheduled for a 15-minute on-field workout and an interview that will be recorded and sent to all 32 teams. The Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, and Detroit Lions are expected to have representatives in attendance.

"We like our quarterback situation right now," Miami head coach, Brian Flores said. "We're going to do our due diligence."

NFL Insider Steve Wyche believes that the workout is the NFL's response to multiple teams inquiring about the 32-year-old quarterback. A league-wide workout would help to mitigate any potential political backlash that any one team may face for making an overture to the controversial figure.

Kapernick is an unrestricted free agent (UFA) so any team could have reached out to him. But it's believed that the interested teams are considering him for next season.

Earlier this year, Kaepernick and Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid reached a financial settlement with the league in a joint collusion complaint. The players alleged that the league conspired to keep them out after they began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016.

Before the 2019 season, Kaepernick posted a video of himself working out on twitter to show he was in great physical condition and ready to play.

Kaepnick took the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 and the NFC Championship game in 2013.

He has the 23rd-highest career passer rating in NFL history, the second-best interception rate, and the ninth-most rushing yards per game of any quarterback ever. In 2016, his career to a sharp dive and he won only of 11 games as a starter.

In the category of "claims to fame nobody wants," the United States can now add "exporter of white supremacist ideology" to its repertoire. Super.

Russell Travers, acting director of the National Counterterrorism Center, made this claim in a briefing at The Washington Institute in Washington, D.C. "For almost two decades, the United States has pointed abroad at countries who are exporters of extreme Islamist ideology," Travers said. "We are now being seen as the exporter of white supremacist ideology. That's a reality with which we are going to have to deal."
